Getting ready to do a direct upgrade to Big Sur from Catalina. Completed migration from Clover to OC 0.6.6. Everything working as expected. My question is around SSDTs. Currently I do not have any SSDTs in use. Are these required for Big Sur, or if I am running hardware that is natively supported are these unnecessary?

CPU: i7 7700K
MB: Gigabyte GA-Z270MX Gaming 5
GPU: Radeon RX Vega 56
HDD: Samsung Evo 850 1TB (non-Nvme, just SATA) - this is the one I am concerned regarding needing SSDT as all newer Macs are Nvme??
RAM: 32 GB

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

The only SSDT that I can think of which you may need is SSDT-PLUG which essentially does the same thing as enabling PluginType in Clover. This is for enabling CPU power management.

If sleep / wake is working, would this still be necessary? Trying to keep things as "vanilla" as possible to make future upgrades simpler.

Meh, just ended up enabling SSDT-PLUG and SSDT-EC-USBX as recommended in the Kaby Lake guide. Can't hurt. Going to do a CCC backup, and go for it w/ the Big Sur upgrade.
