How to get SpeedStep work?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Anyone can help me to get speedstep working?

 

I have these on the end with the bdmesg:

 

Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,4)/Extra/DSDT.aml] 15601 bytes.
Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,4)/Extra/SSDT.aml] 554 bytes.
Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,4)/Extra/SSDT-1.aml] 338 bytes.
Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,4)/Extra/SSDT-2.aml] 939 bytes.
ACPI table not found: SSDT-3.aml
FADT: Restart Fix applied!
FADT: Using custom DSDT!
Found ACPI CPU: CPU0
Found ACPI CPU: CPU1
Found ACPI CPU: CPU2
Found ACPI CPU: CPU3
SSDT with CPU C-States generated successfully
SSDT with CPU P-States generated successfully
RSDT: Added 5 SSDT table(s)
Starting Darwin x86_64

(I extracted the ssdt files with Everest on Windows and just copied them to /Extra. Is this right or do I need to modify something in them?)

 

In com.apple.Boot.plist I have

<key>GeneratePStates</key><string>Yes</string>
<key>GenerateCStates</key><string>Yes</string>
<key>dropSSDT</key><string>Yes</string>

 

I have this with SMC Monitor:

(So there is two states - In Windows it gets down to 2000 when not used.)

 

But the MHz is always 2666:

I have these kexts (all unmodified):

AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement - Loaded, Satisfied

AppleIntelCPUPowerManegementClient - Loaded, Satisfied

AppleHPET - Loaded, Satisfied

AppleLPC - Loaded, Satisfied

AppleRTC - Loaded, Satisfied

 

What else do I need to get this work?

Thanks for the reply, and how to set SMC Monitor to see this? Cause I can't get anything from it just the p-c states.

I have same problem, never seen CPU frequency dropped from 3 GHZ on my i7 950.

tried various tools like SMC Monitor, MSR Dumper, TechTool etc..all shows stable 3 GHz frequency. I also have my DSDT, AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement also loading and working fine, also SMC monitor shows various P&C states info, but somehow system fails to lower the frequency!

i'm pretty sure that i7s have an internal speedstep that does not report outside the chipset, also it means it works without kexts.

i might not be right on this but I'm pretty sure
