Thanks for those advice!! will try
For replacement, I am considering it. but i am wondering if there's successful case from anyone who also owns 6600 xt :)
I usually see posts about successful cases of 6600 xt with hardware acceleration and sleep working, but seems there's not much sharing some outcome for hibernation. i know hibernation is usually not recommended one to enable on hackintosh by hackintosh tutorial sites asking to set `pmset hibernatemode 0` without reason
Probably it's not that much a necessary in terms of a desktop pc/mac

it probably is the last thing for most of the development team who work on things like this like opencore but there are some sites that report hibernation to work ..just with very specific hardware model combinations. I don't think it's a widespread thing

Sorry for bump but I have to wonder, is anyone else noticing on Ventura that fan curve is different and gpu is hotter?

My 6900XT never ever ran over 90C before even under full load, and at idle it usually sat around 40C (it never fully idled due to somewhat broken power management)....Now it's idling at 50C, the fans don't even turn on til almost 80C and even at 96C the fans STILL aren't at full blast. I even got card to 106C and it thermal throttled hard and fans still never went full blast. All starting with macOS 13.

ALso sucks that still have to spoof base 6900XT because my card is the revised 6900XT. I just wonder what drivers changed in mac OS 13 to make fan curve so bad. Seems very apple thing to do though.

I have new version Power Color rx6900xt ID 73AF. After using your file, it started working properly. In addition to your SSDT-Z490-GPU-SPOOF.AML file, do you need to add something else?

I just installed macOS Ventura on OC 0.8.5 and now I'm back to not having my Radeon RX 6900 XT being recognised, getting inverted/laggy OS + wrong card labeling in system info. I've dug through this thread for answers but no luck so far. I also have ID 73af and IGPU on my Designare Z390 is set to Enabled in BIOS F9i, which it was when it all worked in Monterey.

As far as I can remember I fixed it last time with this:
Are you using WhateverGreen 1.5.2 or newer? If so, try the following:
  • Uncheckboth of these kexts:
    • FakePCIID.kext
    • FakePCIID_RX6000_Graphics.kext
  • Add/use the attached SSDT:
    • SSDT-Z490-GPU-SPOOF.aml
  • This SSDT will work for any system whose base PCI path of the GPU is:
    • _SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP
With WhateverGreen 1.5.2 and newer, it should be possible to just spoof the device-id, which the SSDT attempts to do.

But it's not doing the trick anymore. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

looks like the device properties device id not been spoofed from 73af to 73bf try your config again I changed the device id to 73bf

I just looked at the config.plist you posted, and there's no SSDT-Z490-GPU-SPOOF.aml:

Were you using this SSDT with Monterey?

Hah, wth. I'm sure I tried with it enabled on my initial tries and then it didn't work. Now it suddenly did! Well, thanks for that! I seem to be up and running again! :thumbup:
