GPU Power - Getting the most out of Graphics Hardware

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've searched for viable information, benchmark tests for GPU utilization for mac. More Specifically in the video conversion department.

 

So without comprising quality, the CPU is currently the only way of increasing video handling performance. With the addition of CUDA and other direct GPU accelerators, I would like to know what other members are using with good performance.

 

For testing with a GForce 9400 (supposedly a CUDA enabled, but mixed information on that, maybe only the 9400M) CUDA driver installed, but no performance feedback on the CUDAZ app..

 

Why does apple seem to hold back in the graphics dept on everything except a $3000.00 Mac Pro...? Are we really still sharing memory with the system??? I think that my first IBM Think Pad had that?? :) lol

 

Thanks Folks!!!

      I have used UniBest to create my builds in the past and they have mostly been successful. I tried the other methods as a last resort. I have not gotten past the Apple boot screen with any method attempting to install Mojave. 
       
       

       
       
       
      I have followed all the guides I can in order to get a successful install. However, it has been hard to get a definitive guide to solve my issues.
       
       
      Could somebody please help me with the correct [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] settings. Ie UEFI Boot Mode or Legacy Boot Mode? 
      Recommended BIOS Settings for my system. 
       
       
      It might also just be the required Clover boot screen setup / flags 
       
       
       
      I also have no clue which [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] configurations are required for me to build.
       
       
       
      Any help at all will be most appreciated.
       
       
      I can post any more information regarding errors and crashes if required.

      Hi guys,
       
      I need help with my Sapphire RX580 8GB. It works and I have it connected to a BenQ EW3270U (4k monitor through DP), but I noticed that the quality of my video is not exactly great; I just don't feel like it's up to spec with some fuzziness and everything just isn't as sharp as I expect it to be. It's hard to explain exactly what I see, but especially when there's transparency in windows for instance, I see what I would compare to colour compression artifacting in the gradients of the images showing through the transparency effects. It looks like a video with fading on Youtube but the compression makes it look like waves of pixels as opposed to a real gradient, if that makes any sense? It's impossible to film or photograph properly, and - the part that gets me - if I do a screenshot, it's not visible! I must have been super tired when I posted... it's visible on screen shots after all (see attached). It screams graphic acceleration issues to me but I really am at a loss on how to diagnose this issue further. It's not unusable or anything, but I want to get it to work properly and get as much as I can out of it all.
       
      As a comparative I did plug in a Retina MBP to the monitor to make sure it wasn't the issue and as expected, I did not see any of this with the MBP.
      I have Lilu and WEG in my 10.14 kext folder, and my (shameful) config is attached, but I more than likely am missing something important...
       
      All this explained, I want to point out a few things: this is an old machine (built 2012) and I had the same config throughout with exactly 0 issues. This is one reason why I not only never had to optimize it, but I now also pretty much fell off the Hackintosh bandwagon: I am not exactly well versed in all the technical backend of this community as I was until now lucky with a plug and play machine with no issues.
       
      I will need a lot of help to get back up to date... that said I also had incomprehensible and undiagnosed issues getting the RX580 to work on this machine. Even if it was effortless for everyone else, I had to do a LOT of troubleshooting and in the end, I have no clue how I got it to work! So I'm mortified of changing anything on it without getting some advice first since everything, iCloud and iMessage included, works. I'll be happy to fill in any info and I'm hungry to learn. It's just a bit daunting to start over and my searches have discouraged me a but. I know beggars can't be choosers but I have a 60-hour a week job and I just need a bit of guidance if anyone wants to help me off my training wheels  I fully know I'm in a bad spot and quite frankly I'm ashamed of it. Help me make it better please.
