Enable your IGPU and configure it to be headless in Clover.

I switched to iMac 19,1 today and I noticed that the idle CPU clock has gone up to 1,29GHz (13x) instead of 800MHz (8x) . So the whole thing feels a lot snappier too. But is that what Apple wants? Is the real iMac 19,1 also clocked like that? What are your experiences?

I saw the same jump in idle MHz but, oddly, I didn't notice any change in power consumption...

I don't know if real iMac19,x idles at that speed.

I have checked the Intel specs and the CPU should idle with 800Mhz by design. So there is definitely something wrong with SMBIOS 19,1 or 19,2 and the i7 8700k with the clover plugin-type for PWM. But anyway I have switched to iMac Pro 1,1 and that even let me disable my IGPU and I also don't use WEG anymore. PWM is perfect and also no black screen issues with my Radeon 570. Also HEVC is working. Thank you Apple for finally fully support our Radeon cards. The only issue left is the purple lines on startup. But my Mac always sleeps when I walk away so I will see this only once in a while or with the next upgrade.
