the Problem: I am trying to enable Power Management & Speedstep in i7-720QM CPU

 

Speed stepping used to work in previous versions of OS X, using old ver of ssdtPRGen.sh but after Mavericks it don't work

 

 

i tried to use the newest ver of ssdtPRGen.sh but it don't support my processor, i even tried to contact with Piker but he confirmed that he don't support this CPU

 
 
My DSDT & SSDT: Attached File  DSDT & SSDT for i7-720QM.zip   16.81KB   30 downloads
 
 
I would greatly appreciate any help

You don't need SSDT.

 

Just use Generate P e C states.

You don't need SSDT.

 

Just use Generate P e C states.

 

when i try to use only clover, the Multiplier became always "7" or 931MHZ which is the min Frequency 

but when i use the current SSDT it always use the highest Multiplier "12" or 1.2GHZ (Static) no change in Frequency and no Turbo boost !

 

using SSDT :

without SSDT (Clover only):

using clover

works for up to yosemite(works in el capitan too but sleep and shutdown don't seem to be working)

use smbios macbookpro6,2

don't generate c-states

don't generate p-states

don't drop oemssdt

should only have DSDT in the patched folder(if patched)

This wouldnt work always because the power management is done by BIOS and some laptops do not support bios pwm.

Sorry to wake up this thread. I have same CPU and therefore unsupported by Piker.

So I have copied all 5 SSDTs generated using Clover into patched folder and then added them in the list in config.plist

I'm using MPB6.2

 

I've seen my CPU x multiplier in HWMonitor all over the place. From 7 to 15. So I think turbo working fine. I also see perceptible performance increase especially as soon as I login, screen renders much faster with tray icons.

 

My real issue is instant wake on sleep. Since the original poster here seems to have had the same issue, was wondering if he solved it.

and then added them in the list in config.plist
