I'm trying to run this in Big Sur but getting an error that 10.13 or newer OS is required. Is there a workaround to get it to work?
Look through the thread. Someone posted a spreadsheet that works using the same fundamentals.

hy, i have a question.. im on big sur now the latest build 11.1 and no matter what i do with PP_DisablePowerContainment with my gpu (vega56 red devil - the mini soc) draws more than 400watts when under load. if i changed PP_DisablePowerContainment before on catalina the power draw stayed bellow 250watt or whatever i set in vgtab. i merged the same kext with the script and if i set PP_DisablePowerContainment to 0 or to 1 and clear nvram on every change before boot i always get the same result.

any suggestions?

idle is ok at 7watts or so...

thank you

I would take that measurement with a grain of salt. According to iStat I'm pulling over 700 watts running heaven, but only 46°C (I'm on water, but still doesn't jive).​

export SYSTEM_VERSION_COMPAT=1 open -a /yourpath/VGTab_en.app

Will allow it to run.

Edit:

It will allow it to open still will not export file, I would guess that if the export function would run the same terminal command it would work.
