In Topic: Editing Custom connector info for Intel HD 3000 Graphics (sandy bridge, OSX L...

Intel HD Graphics 3000:
Device ID: 0x0116
Revision ID: 0x0009
VRAM: 512 MB (because of 8GB RAM).

There are graphical problems: lines and hangs of everything on the screen but the mouse can move. Already found that it doesn't depend on software and if I'm using Snow Leopard, then everything is fine. If I'm using only one bar of 4GB RAM in Lion, then everything is fine, too. These issues are returned only in combination Lion + 8 GB RAM. I'm using the latest version of Chimera. Playing with the key "Graphics Enabler" does not help, but it is not needed because the card identified well without it.

Using the latest beta build of the Lion shows that the same problems remained. I have confidence (perhaps due to the fact that no other versions), the problem is related to the frequency. I have a processor Intel Core-i5 2430m, where the parameter "Graphics Max Dynamic Frequency" is 1.2 GHz. Apple, in turn, uses 2415m and 2435m processors in MBP8,1. They set this parameter to 1.3 GHz. Laptop screen uses LVDS connection type, and here is my connection string from AppleIntelSNBGraphics.kext:
0503 0000 0200 0000 3000 0000
The first option means that it is LVDS, and the other two I do not know. Maybe one of them responsible for the frequency.
Let me remind you that there are no problems in the Snow Leopard. I compared the ioreg of 10.6.8 with 10.7.2. Important difference is "NumFrameBuffer". In 10.7.2 it is "04" in 10.6.8 - "02". Maybe I need to have a closer look for some parameters?
RevoGirl had the similar problem:
The difference is that she corrected the DVI-connector.
0205 0000 0004 0000 0700 0000 to 0205 0000 0004 0000 0850 0000
But what is the 0700, 0850 ... is not clear. I can't ask her, as I can't find her contacts.

Thank you for the attention.

In Topic: SpeedStepper (now supports Mountain Lion 10.8.3)

I have HP ProBook 4530s with Core i5-2430m, 4GB RAM, Intel HD3000.
BIOS settings by default and upgraded to the latest version.
Installation method: ##### (UserDSDT (DSDT in Tonymac's db); MacBookPro8,1 SMBIOS); patch AppleIntelCPUPM with speedstepper.
PROBLEM: Turbo boost not works. It stuck at a 2.4GHz frequency. Everybody with 4530s and i5 have such problem. A lot of people who have i5-2*** in their laptops also experience the same problem. Please, help me to solve it.
Now I'm using Lion 10.7.2 with patched AppleIntelCPUPM v159 because it's give me the best results. Some statistics:
AppleIntelCPUPM v159: 5400
AppleIntelCPUPM v167: 5200 (why?)
AppleIntelCPUPM v166: 5200
AppleIntelCPUPM (SL): 5440
I'm trying to boot with CSTUsingSystemIO or even without any CPU flags but results are the same.
I attach my DSDT and boot.plist.
