  1. Hi, I have a Gigabyte RX 580 Gaming 8GB, I was wondering how high should the CPU usage be when watching 4k video on youtube ? Is over 250% the correct behavior ? Thank you PS: Safari & YouTube are not compatible with 4k video. I am using latest Opera stable.
  2. Hi, I have the chance to put my hand on a Gigabyte GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8GB, I am currently having a Gigabyte RX 580 Gaming 8GB (which is awesome btw). I know the GTX 1070 Ti is much more powerful I was wondering if it was worth making the switch. Other than having to install NVidia Web Drivers, are there any down sides ? Will sleeping still work ? If I have Intel GPU enabled, HEVC will still be supported? Thank you
  3. Sadly the relevent information is between these 2 pictures. I know there is a dont reboot on panic flag in Clover which might help you taking a better picture. [mention=1166456]Allan[/mention] or other might have more experiences than I with High Sierra and laptop as I have none [emoji4] Envoyé de mon PH-1 en utilisant Tapatalk
  4. Here you go https://www.sendspace.com/file/b5iijx It's a shame the forum only allows 10MB.
  5. Can you share the Clover folder that lets you boot? I will edit it to includes Allan changes
  6. I mean't to fix that. The new attached EFI only contains new USB patch that will unlikely fix anything unless your hackintosh is installed on a USB drive. If it is installed on your hard drive, as I said, try playing with the patches I attached in the screenshot (i.e. disabling some of them). Your SATA Mode is AHCI in the BIOS right?
  7. I added APFS driver to Allan config. Now I just added USB Patches because you are getting "Still Waiting For Root Device". It won't do anything useful if your drive is SATA though. Try again. CLOVER.zip Since your drive is probably SATA and it seems like Mac OS can't find it, I would try playing with these patches :

    I am wondering the samething
  9. Yes it is connected to the RX580's DP Port
  10. Well right now VLC MKV performance are same with IGPU Enabled or Not. They are just better when IGPU is enabled but it fails to load because I leave ig-platform-id blank. However it slows boot time
  11. Just did : https://www.sendspace.com/file/n510lc Behavior is exactly the same though Isn't required for Quick Sync, AirPlay video, and to make it more like a real iMac which has IGPU enabled? With IGPU disabled in BIOS, the behavior is exactly the same
  12. Hi, I just found this player https://mpv.io and I experience no lag at all with my current EFI. I tried the EFI you linked, and the behavior is the same for VLC and 4K MKV. I can't explain why it lags when IGPU is properly loaded, and don't when IGPU is not properly loaded but enabled in BIOS. Maybe you know? I do have shutdown problem, however it can be fixed with "Shutdown Fix" in Clover. However, there is a downside I am unable to fix: the leds on the motherboard stays powered on in case you know. I sadly couldn't find "AS Media Controller" in BIOS. I won't risk myself sharing the link for the 4K MKV as it is probably against the rule, but the file name is "The.Legend.of.Tarzan.2017.MULTi.TRUEFRENCH.2160p.UHD.BluRay.TrueHD.7.1.Atmos.HDR.x265-Poney.mkv" in case you want to find it. Yes that's what I am using?
  13. Sorry for not attaching in my comment. I am not allowed more than 10MB https://www.sendspace.com/file/o4im4f Edit: I don't know if I am the only one suffering from that, but I had to remove a CSS attribute that was on display: none to be able to create my thread. Otherwise there were no textbox to type the content
  14. Hi, I have a Gigabyte RX 580 Gaming 8GB running on a Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming 5 on High Sierra 10.13.4. Sadly, I am unable to watch 4K movies because it lags too much (VLC, Web Players, etc.) I have done many many attempts of getting it to work. What I have right now : DSDT Patches - change HECI to IMEI - change GFX0 to IGPU - change PEGP to GFX0 Scenario with IGPU Disabled MP4 4k video (such as Sony sample) are extremely smooth in Quicktime and VLC. MKV 4K video are laggy in every software (VLC 3.0, IINA, etc.) Scenario with IGPU Enabled 1. Without ig-platform-id set (i.e [IGPU] Graphics driver failed to load:could not register with Framebuffer driver.) Everything runs buttery smooth, but wrong Intel drivers are loaded and CPU usage is huge. [/IMG] 2. With ig-platform-id set to 0x5912003 (i.e Intel loads fine) Proper drivers are used, but MKV are laggy... :( but better CPU consomption Full specs list 1x Intel - Core i7-8700 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor 1x Gigabyte - Z370 AORUS Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) ATX LGA1151 Motherboard 1x Kingston - FURY 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory 2x Samsung - 960 EVO 500GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive 1x Gigabyte - Radeon RX 580 8GB Gaming 8G Video Card 1x Gigabyte - AC300W ATX Mid Tower Case 1x Corsair - TXM Gold 650W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply 1x TP-Link - Archer T9E PCI-Express x1 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi Adapter Thank you
