That for my i7-8700 (non-K)?

No relevant to K or non K, base on frequency vector offset, should work from HSW CPU up, higher frequency vector offset get better performance, lower vector offset get better power consumption.

If want more power saving use ssdt-4100.aml

Thank you! Appreciate the explanation!

A couple of questions though. It's better to wait until the release of 10.14.5 right? Do you need to reinstall the OS after changing your hackintosh SMBIOS definition? Did you have any issues with your iCloud account?

It is better to wait 10.14.5, right.

After you change SMBIOS, your system Serial Number and SmUUID also will be changed. So, after reboot, you will need to log in to your iCloud and some other apps. Don't forget do delete your "old" hakintosh from Apple ID devise list.

I've change SMBIOS a lot of times, and never have any problems with iCloud.

@shuhung

So I have that 4600 aml file installed

How do I verify all is working as it should?

Thank you

I must be doing something wrong..

I've tried the 4600 and 4100 aml files but Intel Power Gadget is always showing core of 4.3 when loading up the CPU with a video conversion task.

All this .aml files are needed for correct P-states during low loading. So idle frequency can be lower than 1.3 GHz (SMBIOS 19.2). Max frequency will always be 4.3 for all cores. And 4.6 for one core (what never happens in the real world).

Why are you worried at all? CPUFriend is needed for laptop users. For 8th-generation desktop CPUs, everything works out of the box. With SMBIOS 19.2 your idle frequency will be 1.3 GHz.

I'm not worried honestly - just playing around and trying things - usual Hack tinkering here. haha

I honestly can't my machine to boot with iMac 19,1 or 19,2 can you?

It freezes with the circle with an x through it and on Verbose mode it says the platform doesn't support this hardware - not sure what in my Config might be doing that as I'm pretty sure I got a 19,1 SMBIOS booting on my extra SSD Install I keep for when bad stuff happens.

We have recently discussed this.

Just updated to macOS 10.14.5 beta 3 (SMBIOS 19.2). Everything works great including iGPU.
