Clearly I have more learning to do about all this stuff as dart=0 doesn't have anything to do with the iGPU but rather "Disables VT-x or VT-d" - straight from the clover docs.[BIG TIME EDIT - 5 minutes later] This is the hazard of accidentally tricking yourself because your testing if flawed. The above results are bogus because I was working with a config_testing.plist file which I needed to switch to within clover. My default config.plist still had dart=0 set in boot args so the GPU, while showing was obviously flatlined because it was disabled! Argggg!!! Even still, I am noticing improvements by bumping the iGPU memory, but not as much as if the dGPU is doing the whole job.
As of recent, I've been able to boot with DVMT Pre-allocated at 256Mb and total allocation set to MAX for the iGPU. FCP is still not as fast as when the iGPU is disabled and I'm hopeful that someone has the info which allows FCP to use the dGPU but still keep the iGPU enabled for encoding/decoding for H264/H265.
