Update: Wasn't too pleased with the last settings because AGPM was down shifting from full graphics acceleration to half. This is because windowed OpenGL apps consume less GPU power and AGPM thinks it's okay to conserve power, bad apple... Thats one thing that I don't get about AGPM and the OSX operating system in general, if there's an OpenGL application running, that should throw up a flag somewhere and prevent agpm from conserving power, that is a mystery. These settings aren't the final solution but it's a step in the correct direction.
Hello once again, I find myself interested in working on my hackintosh. After several attempts I installed 10.9 and I have been very pleased with the results overall. I purchased a GBU521 bluetooth dongle off newegg for $20 and it works just like oem bluetooth in that the wireless keyboard and mouse can wake the machine out of sleep and sleep is working well too.
Only problem I'm seeing is my onboard sound AD2000B codec works but there's room for improvement. On boot the messages I am seeing are 11/20/13 9:16:07.000 PM kernel: Sound assertion in AppleHDACodecGeneric at line 514 that line repeats about 20 times. My bluray drive quits working, I press the eject button at the top and I get a popup dialog like I just inserted a disc but then when I click on it I get an error about drive not being supported it's a Pioneer BD-RW BDR-205.
The reason I am posting is because I wanted to share some more insight about APGM and my experiences with EVGA GTX 560 Ti (That I had to RMA, thanks EVGA for lifetime warranty). It was performing well but not great. Tonight I made some modifications to the Info.plist in APGM and got much better results.
At the desktop the power draw is 220 watts.
I am impressed with the results of my latest tweaking.
I ran Geekbench 2 on my Windows 7 and 10.9 and here are the results for that.
I tried something different today with the AGPM Info.plist. I added BoostPState and BoostTime as you can see in the screenshot. I basically mimicked what some of the other definitions had in order to get a more OEM feeling Hack. I also added Heuristics section but I left the High and Low fields out. This setup isn't quite tuned in yet as my log shows me I am switching power states quite heavily but that will be fixed in the future with some more tweaking. I do love Command + Shift + 4, makes it easier to share stuff and <3 imgur.com
