Maybe it is another version of codec with one common name ALC1220...

upd. I remember two codecs with one device-id and different names. ALC885 and ALC889a.  ALC889a have device-id 0x10ec0885. 

Asus has a "custom" version of the ALC1220 called S1220 with device_id: 0x1220 (IOReg shows 0x1168) . All other manufacturers install the Realtek ALC1220 with device_id: 0x1168.


dgsga/1220 is using toleda files.  Upon completion of testing,1220 files for both device_ids and supported layout-ids will be submitted.


The ALC889a was a "custom" Gigabyte version of the ALC885 (same device_id), marketed as "newer and better"

Windows seems to handle it just fine with 2 antennas but OS X must be depending on all 3. 

macOS uses the 2 available antennas, result is two thirds of max date rate.

Configured correctly
Signal is too low, verify antennas.

For more details, hold the Option key down and select WiFI in the menu bar.

Reply with signal, noise, channel, tx channel, phy mode, etc.

After applying patches, Display ok, no audio

Incorrect dsdt edits, hda-gfx injection belongs in Device IGPU, not Device HDEF

Suggest a HD5500 HDMI audio ssdt instead of dsdt edits (ssdt_hdmi-hd5500.zip)

Incorrect connector patch, HDMI connector patch required for Port 0x6 not 0x5.
