I think my issue was unrelated because I still had hat gadget installed when the error was fixed by switching SMBIOS. My freeze was purely graphic. Sound and applications were still running when the screen froze (mouse wasn't frozen). My assumption is that some of the background work (DRM, quicklook) just hanged the GPU so offloading that to the IGPU was the fix. I gave up DRM but it's fine as I don't need it anyways.Whether or not it's same issue as you, don't know. I'd need see the panic report you get after a freeze (upon reboot). assuming you have working nvram and panic dumps on reboots variables enabled on your hack.
The panic report after reboot was always just a watchdog timeout informing me that the GPU driver wasn't reacting anymore.
