Will let you know soon, working on some stuff on my hack now! haha. By the way, can't seem to find a good way to rename the CPU...
HI,

If you are on macOS Catalina, try this. copy processors.string file to desktop and modify it.

After modifying the line, you will have to use the Terminal app to copy the modified string file back to its original location.
Code:
sudo mount -uw /
sudo cp ~/desktop/Processors.strings /System⁩/Library⁩/PrivateFrameworks⁩/AppleSystemInfo.framework⁩/Versions⁩/A⁩/Resources⁩/en.lproj⁩/
Make sure your SIP is disabled.

Thanks for the help mate. I'm actually utilizing an Engineering sample. Would that be still applicable?

Just add the "agdp=pikera" boot argument.
No as in what I meant was regarding tuning it for better performance. Or you meant that it is good on its own?

Sorry for the double stacked post.. can't seem to stack quotes on my end...

Completely shocked about the choices I have. 5700 XT seems to be doing great!

Still trying to think about the plan, not sure what should be set to what... All i know is that the mem clocks have to be OCed to obtain a considerable boost in perf.

It's pretty much the same as with Clover.

Just add the properties to config.plist > DeviceProperties > Add.

Here's what it looks like for my Radeon VII:

Do you have also problems with the VII and the drivers in 10.15.5? I am following the discussion on the German hackintosh forum where Cmmchris reports that the drivers become worse from version to version.

I haven't noticed any issues with my Radeon VII. However, I haven't been pushing the system very hard recently. I've been going out a lot more since the Coronavirus restrictions were relaxed.

Ahh, well. unfortunate as it may be it is my time of year again. I don’t know if you remeber but you’ve directly helped me through starting my pc to updating it to Mojave. As Big Sur comes out and Catalina is presumably pretty stable by now, I have tried to update, to no avail.

Now, usually the problems I have are just simple things that I would be able to fix on my own. However, this is kind of different. I had tried to boot with the USB and your most recent file of Catalina without OpenCore, and there’s a flashing underscore, which I have seen many times before. It means that it is not reading my USB as a bootable drive. So, therefore, I boot back into Mojave and reprocess anything and see if it was incomplete or anything like that.

After a couple times of doing this however, I have found that I cannot boot back into Mojave as my system takes ages to “scan the entries”. I am using Clover 5093, and I have an idea as to why, as it is scanning to find the EFI out of the almost full 500GB SSD that I have. I am assuming that searching through that would take a while, but my questions are why has this only happened now, and what is wrong with my boot drive for Catalina. When using UniBeast, it takes almost an hour to copy files (typically as it has before). However, there is not a specific EFI partition that is made on my drive, and the EFI file appears in the main page of the drive along with everything else, which I do replace with your file, and then I still get the underscore.

Any feedback would be appreciated whenever you can, as it is almost 2AM by me. Also, much thanks for helping me through the previous troubles I have had. Hopefully, one day, I will be able to update fully without your help . But thanks much.
