    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    @TheBloke No luck yet, been making sure my XCPM and AGPM are set up correctly. I did notice this though: I made sure by moving the kext out of the way in /S/L/E and rebuilding the cache, checked again with kextstat after rebooting and sound preferences too. Still no luck but just thought I'd mention it to you.

    Added in Tools?

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    @TheBloke just to report back, looked promising for a few hours on my VII, rebooted and it froze again, rebooted and immediately froze again At least I migrated to OpenCore and my Z390 is much happier than with Clover. Vega64 is still really solid. oh also I switched to iMacPro1,1 - no iGPU anymore ... everything seems to work ok, including h264 & h265 appears to be using the GPU for encoding rather
  4. Trying out OpenCore following @dracoflar excellent guide. Everything is going well except trying to calculate the slide value. First just to clarify ProvideCustomSlide should be set to true? From the OpenCore documentation, it could be interpreted as false is appropriate when supplying a slide boot argument (for the kernel?): This also ensures that slide= argument is never passed to the operating system for security reasons. But by trial and error it does look that when ProvideCustomSlide=true the slide value is provided, judging from the error message, see below.

Trying to boot with slide=209 I still see: ERROR allocating 0x119f5 pages at 0x0000000021597000 alloc type 2 Couldn't allocate runtime area so fewer pages than we have available but by is the offset/index so much further than the anticipated 0x1A300000 or am I completely misunderstanding how this works?

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    @TheBloke what a rockstar!! thank you for your persistence and follow up!! I just read a thread on reddit a few days ago mentioning disabling audio for Vega but haven't had a chance to look into it .. wrestling a disabled Messages currently after changing SMBios a few too many times I guess, may have to try my luck with Apple Support Good motivation to switch to OpenCore and very keen to try this on my Radeon VII which has total no go. I also use USB audio exclusively and 2 x 4k DP monitors ps. not ready to fully switch to Resolve? pps. a 7 hour encode?? sounds like a whole season of episodes

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    Thanks for the update @thebloke - what a bummer. I just find it so strange that there are so few others and that it is happening with both my cards. Did you read this saga? https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/success-screen-freezes-using-sapphire-radeon-vega-64-nitro-in-macos-mojave-10-14.262778/page-15 I don't think bent CPU pins are my issue But maybe a few more small things to try.

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    After no incidents for more than a day... had 6+ crashes in 30 minutes ... just crashes a minute or two after logging and it's restoring apps, something is triggering it. Super frustrating. It's under fairly minimal load for GPU, I've never been able to trigger it with heavy load. I captured a nice dump with GPU state on 10.14.6 .... was tempted to create a bug report for Apple with that (someone did it before, from a hackintosh and they actually looked into it). Maybe I'll try to capture the same 10.15. Back to my RX580... need to get actual work done....

    Just to follow up - the same thing is happening with a Radeon VII (ASRocket) - looks like Apple screwed up their driver in 10.4.6?

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    I'm having stability issues again, mostly when rendering using DaVinci Resolve.... I suspect since 10.4.6 (non supplemental). Anyone else? Screen just freezes, can SSH in sync & reboot.

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    looks pretty promising so far, no crashes with beta (18F96h), injected PPT removed and editing all day in Resolve. fan idles lower (~800rpm) than I ever got it with a custom PPT.
  12. nefilim

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    does it still allow you to use a custom PPT? just finally got mine stable - custom PPT is essential!
  13. nefilim

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    Do you happen to remember the PPT values? I've made two changes and am cautiously optimistic, no crashes in almost 3 days now, after really trying everything to make it crash: 1. found that my mobo (Asus Z370-G) BIOS was really old, upgraded from v1002 to v1802 2. used these values for my PPT: as it crashed under NO load (it seems the moment it is put under a little load from no load, like watching a video or scrubbing an FCP timeline), upped the voltage for P0 and the lowest memory state frequency (which is supposed to be automatic?), also dropped the memory voltage from the default (VGTab) 1350mV to 1100mV (as seen in Wattman in Windows).

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    Nope - so frustrating, reverted back to RX580 now. One thing I did notice... it seems to happen a lot when starting to play a video (either in browser or slack video call etc)... anyone else notices that?
  15. nefilim

    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    Hey guys - I have the same problem, same Sapphire Reference Vega 64. No problems running LuxMark in stress test mode for 30+ minutes, the crash almost always happens under no load, I can SSH in and manually sync/reboot. I usually have these in the kernel log: Looks like the kernel can no longer connect to the card, hence not being able to get any data from IOReg. Sometimes it happens a bunch of times in a row, which is odd, I've even seen it happen in the BIOS once. I've replaced my Seasonic 650W Platinum PSU with Seasonic 850W Platinum, making sure I use separate cables for each of the PCIe connections on the card. I have looked into the BIOS a bit, I have version 8892 which is the latest I believe. I may downgrade to an earlier version and try it out. Right now I'm trying to run without injecting any soft PowerTable and the associated settings under <Properties> in clover config, enduring the fan at 2400rpm .. no crash in about 20 hours now, given that it crashes under no load I assume it's something to do with the lower/idle state(s) .. perhaps their voltage? If anyone has any ideas that would be great, make my living on this desktop, very frustrating situation! ps. my RX 580 was rock solid UPDATE: crashed 41 hours later...
