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...

You can use the spreadsheet linked below to help adjust the PowerPlay Tables.

Hi @pastrychef
how do you do it with OpenCore?
I use PlistEdit Pro

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:

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.

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.
