Glad it works now. For what I shoot (gh5 4k footage 24/60p) I needed 32gb ram or it would crash randomly when I would add multiple color correction fx. I think i would max the ram and then it would crash. I had 16, so bought another 16 and problem was solved. I also had the 970 before as well. My original setup for this system was 5820k 16gb ram gtx 970. But since the gh5 4k was so demanding on the computer, I was forced to go 32gb ram. Then the 1080ti came out and I went for it. Even with 32gb ram the gtx 970 was playing back my 4k 24p 10 bit and 4k 60p 8 bit footage kinda slow at full quality when all the color correction was added. I would have to go 1/2 or 1/4 to get smooth playback at that point, and I like to see it clear on my big screen. I would have bought a 1070 but bitcoin at the time had those cards super high (end of 2017) and everything was sold out. Fortunately the 1080ti's were't affected at the time so I got one of those.10.13.6 - HS
My bad, by p1lgrim advice just deleted whole EFI folder (which was probably really old), and started over with a clean one, did the trick.
Anyways I ended up taking back the 1070 GPU to the store because with Premiere the upgrade just wasn't taking advantage of it (on playback at least), so I'm again with the 970GTX. Gonna use that cash instead to buy more RAM
Since you use same software as me, did you feel the upgrade was worth it?
By the way, with this latest tutorial, the sound onboard and Sleeping works, which wasn't on the 10.13.2, so great work everyone!
The only thing I regret is not having an onboard GPU! I recently bought a laptop with a gtx 1060 (Walmart overpowered 17+) and an 8750h, partly for editing video. Suprisingly it gives my hackintosh 5820k / 1080ti a run for it's money performance wise! In premiere in windows it utilizes both the onboard gpu and the nvidia gpu at the same time, so performance is much beter than I expected. Maybe only like 25-30% worse than my 1080ti! Perfectly fine to edit with as a secondary system. I almost want to get an 8700k now for my hackintosh because onboard gpu on this laptop seems to make a big difference in premiere, but I don't want to get a whole nother motherboard and different ram.
Last year I went as far as to upgrade the cpu on this hackintosh to a 6950x for better performance in premiere, and felt the same as you with your graphics card upgrade. It was a letdown. I actually got much better realtime playback with my 5820k than the 10 core 6950x. I returned that cpu. Premiere is weird about optimization its more about the right combination than anything as far as getting the best performance. But it may have been a thermal issue, because shortly after that the pump on my corsair cpu cooler failed. Computer was running horribly. I have since gotten it replaced (for free) under warranty (corsair is cool for that). Now it runs smooth, I only can wonder if i still had the 6950x would that have made a difference? Idk.
