Cinebench is a very bad benchmark for GPUs. With a powerful video card, your benchmark results will almost certainly be bottlenecked by CPU.

I just ran Cinebench on my Vega 56 and macOS Mojave 10.14.3 and got 177.15fps.

Therefore, in your situation, the first place I would check would be to see if the CPU is running optimally.

As I said, the old Cinebench GPU benchmark did not do a good job at representing GPU performance. It appears that even Maxon recognized this and have removed the GPU test entirely from the latest version of Cinebench.

HS build17G5019
with WebDriver-387.10.10.10.40.122

Maybe I am posting in the wrong spot but this seems active, and I am losing my mind try to figure this out. I went thru @Stork 's guide and was getting ioconsoleusers gioscreenlockstate 3 and then a black screen. I tried fresh installs, SIP disabled, and a bunch of other stuff all with the same results.

Then I went into single user mode and trying to rm -R GeF*.* everything thing. Only, I could not do it and exited. but, when I left -s, I was brought to my working desktop. Webdrivers were working! Everything seemed fine. I thought maybe I did something while I was in -s and tried to load as normal, but got the black screen, ioconsoleusers gioscreenlockstate 3 again.

Then I loaded in -safe mode and was a able to get to the desktop. I have full resolution and the graphics card is not limited to 256 mb or whatever. Web drivers don't work, and everything its real glitchy.

My point is, what did I do in -s mode to make everything work? To me it seems like a kext issue, but I don't know how to find out which one. any suggestions would be great!

thank

I am really sorry but I don’t know what any of your single user mode stuff means or why you were doing that to get your Nvidia card working. I have been running a GTX960 with no issues at all up till a few weeks ago when I switched to AMD. Another friend is using an EVGA GTX1080 without issue under high Sierra as well.

It was always really simple especially after all the graphics patches were merged under whatever green kext. Make sure you have that and lilu installed (personally I inject all kexts from clover) and set Nvidia web as ‘true’ in clover as detailed in this post

You want no other graphics injection anywhere else in clover. With the kexts you should be able to reach desktop without acceleration but once you install the webdriver and reboot you will get full acceleration in high Sierra. I don’t know what SMBIOS you are using but I have always had iMac 18,3 which has been super stable on this build, even when switching GPU over.

Make sure that you have HFSPlus.efi (or vboxhfs-64-efi) in /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/.

@P1LGRIM VBoxHfs-64.efi is in the folder. What can I do?

I've never see this before. Are you trying to install High Sierra or Mojave?

Oh, I have not mentioned that I was able to connect the Hard Disk and transfer lots of files (after trying to connect and disconnect several times). From then on the hard disk was not able to be seen. I tried with another WD HHD with no luck. Do you have any ideas how to fix this issue @Stork @P1LGRIM ?
Thank you in advance for the help
