Have you looked for these under the Chipset section of your BIOS ?

Chipset → DVMT Pre-Allocated : 32M **
Chipset → DVMT Total Gfx Mem : 128M **

Thank you :)

That was one of the things they changed a version or two ago, so I would update first. Also I don't believe that appears unless you enable iGPU multi monitor. (if you have a DGPU by default the iGPU won't also enable)

Hi Scope666, could you tell me how to find iGPU multi monitor in BIOS, also can you tell me which BIOS version should I use?

In your screenshot, where it says AUTO, change that. For BIOS use the latest version available.

Hi @scope666 I've got a slightly different mobo than you but the same CPU. In BIOS, Primary is set to PEG (for my Radeon 6800), and iGPU Multi-Monitor is Enabled (but no monitor is connected to iGPU).

I had a hard time getting accelerated H264 video decoding using Dortania's recommended headless ig-platform-id of 0300C89B; Hackintool would just report "Decoder Failed". Even though I don't have a monitor hooked into my iGPU port, I checked in the OC 0.7.3 EFI you posted, and switched to your ig-platform-id of 07009B3E (and also your device-id of 9B3E0000). (Since I'm using iGPU as headless, I didn't add any framebuffer connectors or memory items).

After reboot, Hackintool now reports VDA Decoder "Fully Supported", so I'm happy with that, but I notice the change has dramatically increased my boot time, during which the Apple logo bootscreen disappears and my monitor completely blacks-out for about 60 seconds. That's about 55 seconds longer than the monitor "blackout" time when I was using 0300C89B (without any device-id). I can live with the added delay caused by using 07009B3E, but am just curious if you could think of anything I could do to eliminate or reduce its 60-second blackout.

I have noticed the same thing, MUCH longer boot times when the iGPU is enabled. I think this started with Big Sur. I just deal with it because I need the iGPU functioning.

Thanks for the quick reply! Yeah, I need iGPU too so you're right, I can deal with the longer boot time to have it working.
