Are there any plans to add the Whiskey Lake CPUs? Specifically the i7-8565U?

Hi All, Trying to get this to work, and I keep getting the 'unknown processor model.' Funny thing, I look into the data folder and the skylake cfg file, and it's in there. i5-6500,65,800,3200,3600,4,4

What's going on with this? I'm dying to get sleep working on my hackintosh.

Hello, I had the same issue. I reinstalled the OS with only the Radeon GPUs installed instead of the Intel iGPU. That's a lot of work though. Have you tried seeing if Clover Configurer, sees your CPU correctly? As in, the right model of Mac? I.E. iMac 13,2 for my i7-3770k.

I actually ended up fixing the issue in an entirely different way. It turns out you don't need a power management SSDT for newer Intel CPUs. Also, sleep was unrelated.

is this good for an 6700k on z170 mobo? using clover generate option only. What does the parenteses mean? i.e. (8) or (40) on each line

parenthesis is the current cpu clock multiplier when the line was output. The lowest number (8) = 800 MHz is the speed at idle when the CPU isn't doing anything. The other numbers in the last line are all the multipliers that have been seen - you can ignore all the earlier shorter lines. The highest number 42 = 4.2 GHz is the max multiplier achieved.

8 is expected for idle. 42 is good if that's what you set the max clock to. Mine is overclocked to 4.7 GHz. You can use Intel Power Gadget to see the clock change depending on what you're doing - it uses some CPU to draw, so it might not go low to 800 MHz often.

I've got a 6700k on a z170 mobo with a Radeon RX580 and iMacPro1,1 as a system definition. OP lists iMac17,1 as the preferred system definition for my proc/mobo combo. I've tried the clover PluginType method, but that doesn't seem to work. Will this method work, or must I use the correct system definition to get power management to work?

I've tried both iMacPro1,1 and iMac17,1. I think iMac17,1 is more stable with no issues. You're not the only one who is experiencing PM issues with 6700K. I spent hours reading thru the forum and nobody had solutions to fix it. I'm using OpenCore and its PM seems to do a better job than Clover. I was able to get idle speed at 1 Ghz. It's close enough to 800 Mhz.

I plan to do some more testings with iMacPro1,1 to see if I can get it down to 800 Mhz at idle.
