macOS Native CPU/IGPU Power Management

Native macOS power management delivers the best combination of processor and graphics performance and efficiency. The ingredients are an installed processor XCPM enabling ssdt or correctly configured Clover setting, a compatible system definition and the native power management kext. Native power management requires optimized default BIOS settings and setting Clover correctly. Credit: PluginType=YES (Xcode) only technique, RehabMan.

To be clear, native power management is not mandatory. The consequences are not severe. Performance is similar, however, higher temps (~10 C), more power (5-10 W) and sleep problems are likely.

Change Log
v1.2 - 12/8/18: Coffee Lake support
v1.1 - 11/28/17: Clover XPCM Support/v4307 and newer:​
  • config.plist/ACPI/SSDT/Generate/PluginType=YES (Xcode)

    Note: Results will vary, minimum P-States:

    CPU: 5 P-States or less (i.e., only min and/or turbo), PM not working

    IGPU: 3 P-States or less i.e., only min or max), PM not working

If one is using (or going to use) a dedicated GPU(such as an nVidia card), does that invalidate this process?

Just for clarity, does this invalidate this process (and the subsequent ssdtPRGen)?

No, This thread does not address discrete graphics power management.

No. Starting with Experimental technique: XCPM only, the techniques is the same.

ssdtPRGen applies to Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge and certain server processors.
Thank you for the answers.

Given my build, and also that I'm installing an nVidia GPU, would you recommend this procedure?

GPU is not relevant to CPU PM.

I think the "XCMP only" method (SSDT-PluginType1.aml) can be recommended for any build with Haswell or later CPU.
Also, it works also for versions prior to macOS.
