I don't see GFX info in Intel Power Gadget? Am I supposed to install extra stuff for this?
** Micro-Guide: Significantly Speed Up Intel UHD630 iGPU **
Please do not quote this guide in its entirety. Post a link instead.
I found RadeonBoost to not work with VEGA 64, even the "special" version @CaseySJ has in the mini guide. However @mattystonnie is working on a new setup with SSDT + kext that does seem to give me a pretty good synthetic boost and keeps my fans running as they should. As for real world increases, I've not had a chance to test out yet so your millage certainly may vary.I don't wanna ruin everyone's RadeonBoost party, but so far in my testing, I only found my system to be slower with the kext. Let me explain:
I'm running a VEGA 64 8GB and 9900KS on Clover with iMacPro1,1 with iGPU disabled (in hindsight, the 9900KS doesn't make any sense whatsoever). I tried various setups: iMac19,1 instead of iMacPro, enabled and disabling iGPU, with and without the SSDT. Even though I do sometimes see a significant increase in GB5 scores, I have never experienced an increase in render times in DaVinci Resovle 16. Futhermore, all tested setups and combinations resulted in significantly lower performance. I tested the same video with each setup (a combination of multiple camera's and formats including H264, H265, retiming, LUTs and titles). For instance, using the setup as described above, without RadeonBoost, gets me about 55 fps when rendering 4K H264 clip. Using RB, this drops to around 30-35. As video rendering and video editing is the main reason I built this setup, this kext unfortunately doesn't make sense to me.
I think it's important to talk about this. Better GB scores are nice and all, but translation to real-world performance is way more important to me.
you need to make sure that your igpu is set correctly. Check the guide from Casey going the extra mile. There itis explained how to setup your igpu correctly with hackintool as an example. I would recommend to set it up in a headless Config like smbios 19,1 is set up originally...
Just replace files in CLOVER/kexts/Other and reboot.
