Hi there @SmackAttack ,Okay, I'm a total idiot.
I have a second internal that I use as by clone both for EFI and boot. In all my OC shenanigans, I failed to notice that when I was going back to my Clover loader, the new BIOS changed the default UEFI to the clone's EFI which DID in fact have Radeon Boost.
Once I installed and configured RB in OC, my Radeon speeds are where they were in Clover.
Sorry to have wasted time, but I guess we (I) know that RB DOES IN FACT speed up Radeon cards in Catalina. In GB5, I'm seeing 71321 with my internal Vega 64, and 85733 with the eGPU VII (it was 90k in Clover). Perhaps I have to add the 2nd RB aml for slot2 as well. I might try that and see if two amls can coexist.
Thanks for all the help!
I wouldn’t expect your performance to be that bad without it. My internal Vega 64 was maybe a tiny bit low on the Geekbench score, but not nearly as bad as my Radeon VII in the Sonnet eGFX chassis. However, installing the Radeon boost did significantly help both, and now they’re scoring above all the Geekbench benchmarks.Hi there @SmackAttack ,
In Big Sur with OC 0.6.8, the graphics response from my music production software is so bad, it's unusable. I am wondering if this Radeon Boost might help, but I know nothing about it.
Is there a guide to installing/using it, or is it something that can be done relatively easily in just a few steps? I have a Sapphire RX 580 4GB.
Awesome! Thank you very much for your quick reply.I wouldn’t expect your performance to be that bad without it.

Casey has a link on post #1 somewhere that will take you to the Radeon Boost thread (where you’ll find the install files) but I can tell you you need three things:
1) the .aml that corresponds to your GPU slot configuration.
2) the Radeon Boost kext.
3) your OC config that includes both of those.
Give it a shot!

Heads up it says not to install the .aml for your card.It’s post 19,314:
@CaseySJ When trying to copy, then rename, there was already another config.plist already present and thus did not allow me to rename. Did this occur being that I needed to copy and rename with a plist editor ? Can't you just rename or delete the old version and then copy the new one and...www.tonymacx86.com
Yes, thank you!Heads up it says not to install the .aml for your card.
Awesome man! I appreciate your help... OK, going to try that now.Ah, right forgot to clarify that:
You need to leave the "ExecutablePath" empty, and fill "Contents" in to be "Contents/Info.plist."
Then make sure you've got the check box enabled if you're using OCC.
