One thing to note: 10.15 added configuration keys to the VideoToolbox decoder/encoder sessions that lets you specify which hardware device to use. I need to do some experimentation to see how it works with headless iGPU setups (since it seems to be based on Metal registry ids) but in theory apps can now let you choose which device to use.

I'm sure it'll take a good while before software is updated to take advantage of it, especially since it seems Apple just silently added it without really mentioning it.

which software is this which shows Bothe igpu and dgpu? with my i7800k and rx570 SMBIOS 19,1 No DRM contents works in Safari but Chrome it works also only H265 encode works with videotoolbox codec h264 freezes Handbrake ifI use videotoolbox codec. what is the correct ig platform id that will solve this for my system? I have tried using 0x3E920003 or 0x3E910003 or 0x3E980003
SO I have other machine Z370 - 8700K RX580 , but I can not find correct solution to work normal. i9-9900K work with ( see picture )

But I lost 3 day to make different option on 8700K and no luck. At end I put it on iMacPro1,1 and disable IGPU from bios. only on this variant work normal.

Why you have included the second screen shot? Also please tell me the name of the software which shows status of the GPU and other details.
Can using the SMBIOS 18,3 make any difference?

I, I'have fixed the issus with may RX570 Sapphire PULSE with 2 DP and 2 HDMi.
I use only the 2 HDMi

With Clover:
Inject EDID
Inject ATI
Radeon Delnit

Framebuffer -> Acre

Best.
