Sadly I didn't tested a Benchmark. I could do it once i've found time for that :D
But what I can tell you for sure, the pc is worth the money. For me it is a beast. And macos is working great.

IMHO If you can't find mac drivers for the GPU It'll be a lot less hassle to switch it out to something supported...

and yes, the network card is a pain. see my earlier posts. I gave up on that and got a usb to ethernet from aliexpress :)

My BIOS Settings are in the original post.
Looks like your graphics card could be the problem.


The interesting thing is that I never had any issues with Network on my T5500 with the kext I used in my main post.

Hi Everyone!
I installed OSX 10.12.1 Sierra to a Dell T5500, following the instructions. There is an original Apple GEFORCE GT120 in the PC. How can I configure it in the Clover? I've tried a lot of things, but I can only boot it so far if I use nv_disable=1, but in this case it only sees 8MB memory (I attach a screenshot).
Thank you for your help in advance!
