I don't need to you look at it (not trying to give you extra work) but I can provide it if you're interested...

Ask (3 times) and you shall receive
AGPM configured correctly, note IOReg/.../AGPM/max-value/0xf
AGPM not configured correctly, IOReg shows /.../AGPM/max-value/0x3

0x3: threshold graphics power management is enabled, Fermi (5xx) and older
0xf: power state power management is enabled, Kepler (6xx) and newer

0x3: threshold graphics power management is enabled, Fermi (5xx) and older
0xf: power state power management is enabled, Kepler (6xx) and newer
so in my case (Pascal) the max-value should be 0xf (which it is), correct?

Hello @toleda. This guide is very interesting but I am having trouble to follow it. My configuration is a little bit different.
My configuration is not even on your table at first post.
Can you help me going through the install process with my hardware. I am looking forward to have a perfect instal and this guide seems to go a little step further on this matter.
I have a 9600K with Gigabyte X390 M Gaming and AMD RX380 4gb Saphire. I use SMBIOS 19,1 that doesn't even exist on your table but it's the closest to my hardware.
I followed your guide to step 4 then I've got lost on IOReg part. I use a headless solution with my config. Intel 630 with AMD RX580. Is this headless solution possible to have with your GPU Power Management?
Can you or someone guide me through it?
Thanks.
