Hi,

I applied the SpeedStep patch for 10.7.3 and it works fine. However with MSRDumper I can see there are only 2 steps are used:

Feb 15 00:17:57 Zhangs-MacPro kernel[0]: MSRDumper CoreMulti(43)
Feb 15 00:17:57 Zhangs-MacPro kernel[0]: MSRDumper PStatesReached: 16 43
Feb 15 00:17:57 Zhangs-MacPro kernel[0]: MSRDumper CoreMulti(16)
Feb 15 00:17:57 Zhangs-MacPro kernel[0]: MSRDumper PStatesReached: 16 43



Also in the boot process I can see:
ACPI CPUs not found: C-States not generated !!!
ACPI CPUs not found: P-States not generated !!!

I know this is not a problem about SpeedStep patch. From what I've read I guess I need to put some SSDT.aml file or DSDT.aml file under /Extra. However I don't know how to get them...

Thanks for helping!

This is posted in the wrong sub-forum, but I have the same problem. However, when I am in Windows, CPU-Z seems to jump between x19 and x43 as well (although other tools besides CPU-Z sometimes read inbetween). I do not use the speedstep patch, but chameleon outputs that it created p-states (and the SSDT I can extract while booted into OS X shows multiple p-sates), but the debugger will only show the minimum and maximum sates being used, even after an hour or so of running.

It's not the right place to post problems.

I get the same, but it doesn't really bother me. I'm just glad to be able to use the max speed on my CPU.

I get 16 and 45 in Lion and Mt. Lion.
