    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    Fans spinning down after load is what should happen when using a PPT. However, most cards start to spin up to full speed after the card is under load before the start to spin down. This phenomenon disappears with DisableFanControl = 3. I am using DisableFanControll = 1 tho. My card is almost silent at the base 1200 RPM and it keeps the temps low. Regarding the power limit I don't know why your clocks behave abnormal under load when you apply a higher limit. I run my card with 300W power limit and have no issues with that.

    Yup, "DisableFanControl = 3" fixes the fan spin-up issue after load. Fans now retain their speed for a while and then start the spin down process. @Pluskat5000Schiffe you are my hero! I guess this is a bug, but it works well.

    I never tested this. Let me try it on my card You changed the wrong value tho. I was talking about my PPT generator.

    Fans should spin up with "DisableFanControl". How long did you put it under load to check it? Regarding the PPT fan control, something seems to be incompatible with your card. Try changing FanControlParameter to 0, 1 and 3 to see how it behaves. If nothing works out you can try removing the PPT and only inject "DisableFanControl". If that also doesn't help, ditch your card and try a MSI or XFX Vega 64.
  5. Confirmed with a Vega 64. Both H.264 and HEVC are encoded by the CPU since 10.14.1. Switched back to iMac18,3 and Quick Sync for now but even with Quick Sync the encoding got slower because it doesn't use both GPUs anymore. Bug will likely be fixed in 10.14.2.

    You should only flash reference cards.

    @Pluskat5000Schiffe You used VGTab right? Please try it with my PPT generator and use the following settings: - P0 852 / 800 - P1 991 / 850 - P2 1084 / 900 - P3 1138 / 925 - P4 1200 / 950 - P5 1401 / 1000 - P6 1536 / 1025 - P7 1630 / 1050 - HBM 1030MHz - HBMV 1025 - SoC Clock 1199MHz - Power Limit 247W - Power Limit 50% - Current Limit 337A Remove the VGTab Injector Kext and inject the PPT with Clover and add the following parameters: PP_DisablePowerContainment = 1 PP_DisableFanControl = 1 Now test if card is stable and check if the fans are controlled automatically. If fans are not controlled you need to remove DisableFanControl and tune the Fan Curve by PPT.

    @Pluskat5000Schiffe What settings did you use? @blouse Lower FPS in Cinebench is normal in Mojave. I get like 129fps no matter what settings I use. Test your card with Luxmark and Unigine Valley or Geekbench Compute for single card performance. Luxmark also supports dual GPUs. Regarding crashes, lower your memory clock. For me everything above 1000MHz crashes after some time.

    I don't see how a second monitor could have such an effect. Please check if your PPT is still being applied.

    News about my bug report. I told Apple that I can't provide any info from a real mac right now (don't have an eGPU box at the moment), but might be able doing so later on. Afterwards they accepted a system report coming from my Hackintosh. I then submitted it and a day later they told they will be looking into this issue. Shortly afterwards my case was merged with another bug report (not closed!). So that gives me some hope they will try to fix this mess. Leaves me kind of surprised as well. I expected them to just close my case due to the Hackintosh.

    Uhm, that's kinda wrong. To get your PCI-path open IORegistryExplorer or IOJones and look up your PEG0. Depending on the renames you use and the motherboards way of handling the graphics card it might be located under one those: - PEG0/GFX0 - PEG0/PEGP - PEG0/PEGP/display@0 - PEG0/PEGP/GFX0 - PEG0/GFX0/display@0 Check on which of those entries you find the "ATY,bin_image" and other "PP_" settings. This is where the controlling data needs to be injected. Now all you have to do is look up this entry with GFX Util. In my case it is "./gfxutil -f display". Now you have the correct PCI path.

    Apple has responded to my bug report and demand a sysdiagnose from a real Mac. Anyone in here with a real Mac Pro + Vega 64 or Vega 64 as eGPU suffering from the fan bug who is able to create a sysdiagnose?

    @Pluskat5000Schiffe Make sure your PCI path is correct. You can generate it with GFX Util.
