  1. Anyone who has installed the new NvidiaGraphicsFixup and is on a 4K monitor; do you see any lag/stutter in the webgl water demo as described in this topic: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forums/topic/332311-partial-success-but-with-random-graphics-lags-video-included-coffeelake-1080-ti Thanks
  2. if i wouldn't be on holidays i would have tried it right away
  3. Wow if this works it would be awesome.. Anyone with CoffeeLake + 1080ti who can test?
  4. Hi! After reading through several guides, I have managed to install MacOS High Sierra 10.13.3, using Clover Vibrant edition. My setup: Intel i7 8700k (not overclocked) Gigabyte z370 aorus gaming 7 Gigabyte NVIDIA 1080 ti LG Ultrafine 5k (over Thunderbolt3 with gc-alpine-ridge card) Dell 4k monitor over DisplayPort The machine works fine under windows 10 (for games) Installation os High Sierra: 1. Installed MacOS with Clover, added EmuVariable kext 2. Installed latest NVIDIA webdriver, but performance was terrible, so I reverted to older version (with webdriver.sh) 378. 3. Enabled video acceleration via IGPU (Intel HD 630) by setting platform id (0x59120003), IntelGFX (0x59128086) and FakePCIID / FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics kexts (verified with VDADecoderCheck) 4. Enabled onboard audio with audio_CloverALC script 5. I have set an ssdt for Coffeelake (generated with ssdtPRGen-coffeelake) Resulting EFI/Clover + config.plist attached The issue: the whole UI micro stutters / lags occuring randomly (about every second), this one issue makes this machine unusable as a hackintosh The stutters are most easily visible in the WebGL water demo: http://madebyevan.com/webgl-water/ ( i have included a video recording of my screen ) Perhaps interesting to note, the audio works fine and music, or the audio of youtube videos doesn't stutter at all (but the video does). When i'm not playing any music, i can sometimes hear electric noise through my headphones, which goes silent during those short periods of lag/freeze. I've tried many things to fix the UI / video / graphics stutters and lags. Things like setting the ids of the Gigabyte mainboard in clover config.plist, or adding a DSDT.aml file, but it didnt work and only made things worse. I also tried looking trrough 'log show' or Console.app to see if there are any obvious errors or exceptions occuring, but I didn't see anything that could be connected. Any help is very much appreciated! CLOVER.zip config.plist.zip hackintosh_lag.mp4.zip
  5. That's great! Did you have issues in the past with Webdriver 157? And was it with a different SMBIOS?
  6. hi fabiosun, interesting vid from cyberdevs, it looks a bit different than the lags I have, but it might be related to my issue.. "rhytmic lag" seems like a good description, and I am wondering what happens during those lags. On windows I have absolutely no issue either. i am wondering: is there anyone with a hackintosh with NVIDIA 10xx series card + High Sierra, without these lags (as seen in the 'WebGL Water' demo vid i posted)
  7. Hi fabiosun, i attached a video on lags/stutter in this post here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/332311-partial-success-but-with-random-graphics-lags-video-included-coffeelake-1080-ti/
  8. Ok i tried it, the script removed the .104 version, and then installed .106 webdriver. However the lags are still there, no improvement unfortunately.
  9. Hi, Nice setup! I was wondering, does the WebGL Water demo run smoothly for you? (also curious to hear from others with 10 series NVIDIA cards on Sierra / High Sierra) http://madebyevan.com/webgl-water/ I'm seeing subtle lags/stutter as described in my post here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/332311-partial-success-but-with-random-graphics-lags-video-included-coffeelake-1080-ti/
  10. Thanks for the suggestion! 1. i installed sierra 10.12.6 (16G29) with MaLd0n's EFI/Clover, 2. and installed the appropriate NVIDIA webdriver 378.05.05.25f01 (which does not need version patching) The problem is not solved, but it has improved slightly: - High Sierra: 1 second no lag, then system freezes for 50ms [repeat] - Sierra: 1 second no lag, then system freezes for 10ms [repeat] The freezes/lags became much shorter (sometimes almost unnoticable), it still happens at the same interval. Still sometimes the freezes are too much, so the system is not usable yet. Any other things I can try?
  11. I've tried a few more things, but the still the same issue (smooth graphics but short lag every second): - tried older webdriver from 10.13.1; same result but maybe even a bit worse - tried changing a few bootflags (copied from my previous config.plist) - tried booting with only the IGPU Intel HD 630 (removed nvidia webdriver, connected DisplayPort from mobo) : boot stops at a black screen with flashing text "WindowServer ... unset ... something" (i can get full message if its important) - i have tried EFI that i found here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/success-i7-8700k-ga-z370-aorus-gaming-7.238537/ (and adapted config.plist for serial numbers, platform id and fakeid for intel). still the same issue. can there be other things wrong in the system? memory? cpu? any ideas how to debug random system lags? thank you
  12. Yes the .25.156 driver has extreme lag, but on my machien also 25.104 and 25.106 have more subtle lags every second. (I dont know if it is the drivers or something else though)
  13. ok i disabled IGPU and installed your CLOVER folder bootscreen looks very nice it didn't solve my graphics issue though, graphics are the same as in the video I posted: smooth animation but about every second there is a stutter/lag Sidenote: I do see better transparency effects in Clover, when switching between screens. But it also sometimes causes some lag. Not sure if the improvement is because of driver .104 or the clover folder
  14. Hi MaLd0n, sip is disabled, in Clover Configurator > Rt Variables > i can see CsrActiveConfig = 0x67 so no action needed. i uninstalled my nvidia webdriver (.104), .106 rebooted, and then installed InsanelyMacWebDriver(OsxBuild_17C205\)-378. and patched with NvWeb_Pather. After reboot, the result is the same still random lag/freeze like in the video
  15. Thank you for the quick reply! I've attached the file Send me Maarten’s iMac.zip
  16. @arsradu just to share my experience: - 156 had really bad performance (no acceleration) on my system - the solution provided in #1244 worked for me (installing driver .104) - i havent done anything to SIP (it has always been enabled). - my gfx card is 1080 ti on Coffeelake. I am also using these adapted kexts specifc to my monitor: https://github.com/aerror2/NGFixLG5K https://github.com/aerror2/CoreDisplayFixLG5K and Lilu But i'm guessing the standard NvidiaGraphicsFixup and CoreDisplayFixup should work otherwise. Also I'm using bootarg: ngfxpatch=pikera
  17. Hi, I have recently installed Macos 13.3.3 through a guide for Coffeelake + Gigabyte motherboard. Some details about the system: - It is installed as an iMac 18,3(?) - it uses two adapted kexts for LG Ultrafine 5K monitor: - https://github.com/aerror2/NGFixLG5K(maybe I can leave this out with the iMacPro1,1 approach?) - https://github.com/aerror2/CoreDisplayFixLG5K The graphics acceleration is pretty bad on MacOS 10.13.3 with the latest Webdriver, and I found this iMacPro topic while reading through the forums. (Note that the HW works fine on windows 10) Would it be possible to convert the Macos install iMacPro1,1 without doing a clean install? I would like to experiment just by modifying the EFI partition on an USB drive if possible. The reason I would attempt it is for better NVIDIA graphics acceleration performance, not sure if that makes any sense? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated Feel free to delete the post if its offtopic
