Hey!
Here's an instruction for you:
disable consumption limits
overclock P-cores and E-cores
turn off hyper-threading
get 15000+ points.
:)
Hey Bro, but in W11, i get this results 2k/16k.... only on macOS 2k/13k... :(

I ended up reading all the pages in this thread, and from what I found, there is no way to enable the 24 threads (8p+8e+ht) using Opencore + macOS, does that right?
Correct, and that answers your other question.

If you have a CPU-specific SSDT-PLUG-ALT, macOS only sees and uses P-cores and their hyperthreads but not the E-cores, even though these are enabled in BIOS. Windows 11 sees and uses all cores, and thus gets an extra 3k of multithreaded performance from the E-cores.
Unless someone finds a way to bypass the topology check and validate P+HT+E in macOS, there's no way the performance of macOS on AlderLake can come closer to that of Windows or Linux on the same hardware.

Did you load Windows 10/11 with 0 E-cores? On my MSI Z690 + 12500K the CPU is heating too hard without E-cores in Windows.
I have installed Windows 11 with 0 E-cores, however, it seems quite normal. Geekbench 5 score is almost same as one with Monterey.

This is a VERY long thread... has anyone nailed down a guide for setting up Clover for the Alder Lake CPU's on Z690 mainboards yet?

you would be better off using OpenCore

Look for Casey's Z690 build in Golden Builds. It's OpenCore based. I doubt that anyone will be using Clover with a Z690 system. It's probably not even ready yet. OC is a much better choice right now.

so IGNORE me!
Perhaps, the user with 16k geekbench score has a much faster DDR5?

I belive that no have ddr5.

My results in W11, are around 2k single-core and 16,5k multi-core.

My results in macOS, area around 2k single-core buuut, 12k ~ 13k in multi-core, because macOS don't see E-Cores.
