QE/CI Glitchy Graphics issues on 10.9 GTX 770 and Haswell

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello folks! 

 

I'm having some graphics glitches with my GTX 770 on OS X Mavericks 10.9

My boot args are -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1

The glitch seems to happen mostly in graphical transitions. Instead of a smooth transition the graphics blink rapidly during transition animations then return to normal when there is no transition movement.

 

Ive attempted to use pandora's box to patch the video kexts with no avail. 

Any ideas on how to go about resolving this issue and getting full graphics acceleration in 10.9?

 

Relevant hardware:

EVGA GTX 770 2gb (Read as the GK104 in 'About This Mac')

Gigabyte z87-HD3 

i7 4770k

OSX Mavericks 10.9 (issue persists in both DP1 and DP2)

 

Any help is much appreciated! thanks in advance!

Web drivers can't be installed in 10.9. I have a 780 and I run with graphics enabler off, and pciroot is 0 (i don't set it, i'm pretty sure it defaults to this) and I have no glitches whatsoever. Graphics acceleration is working perfectly fine, the only problem is the drivers don't seem to fully support the card so you're not going to have a great time gaming. I can get 100+ fps in a bunch of games, and while it's playable there are some serious stutter problems and in some situations my fps is less than 1/2 or 1/3 of what it is in windows.

 

I had GE enabled at first and experienced lots of glitches as well so I recommend turning it off. In DP1 I had to set npci=0x2000 but I leave that off in DP2 now.

 PCIRootUID=1 is for DUAL CPU systems only. By using this flag you are just bypassing the card. 

 

Try booting with the following:

 

-v npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No 

 

Report back the results.

Hello again! And many thanks for the replies.

Good to hear you've got the 780 up and running! And yeah unfortunately no wed drivers for the 7 series on 10.9 :/ 

Perhaps installing a copy of your ATY_Init.kext would solve? Also what card comes up when you look at your 'About This Mac'?

I've just booted with the suggested arguments, and unfortunately no change. Ive already attempted a clean re-installation with myHack to see if it would fix the issue and patching ATY_Init.kext with Pandoras Box but also no change. Are there any other solutions for this issue via DSDT, kext, boot args etc..?

From what I am gathering you are using things that you do not understand what they do. The 6xx and 7xx are self initiating so no other kexts are needed. You may have to wait until the next update for support to be fully added for you GPU.

In regards to Hackintosh and the 770, yeah I have very little understanding with this card. And thanks for the info

I will update to DP2 and hang tight for further updates and QE/CI support.

      This card is working OOB, but it has some graphical issues as per attachments.

      If someone has a solution please share.

      Hi guys,
       
      So, this little tutorial is meant to help people fix a new issue with Mojave: opening jpg files (looks like it happens with larger files, not so much with smaller ones) using Quick Look (on spacebar key pressed) or Preview app, using the dedicated GPUs.
      The issue is that, when trying to open jpg files (for some reason, it doesn't occur with pngs), the pop-up window would remain in an endless loop. And from that point forward, any other app trying to open the same file will either become unresponsive (in the case of the Preview app) or just stay in endless loop (in case of Quick Look)
       
      As a workaround, in case the tutorial below doesn't work for you, you can use Grab (built-in app in MacOS) to open said files.
       
      This issue DOES NOT occur using the iGPU. So...if you're comfortable using the iGPU, just switch to that and you should be good to go. You don't need this tutorial.
       
      This tutorial is based on @Cyberdevs' research and testing on this topic (especially useful if you're using an RX series AMD video card), and my own very limited time testing this on my rig. I just thought it would be useful to create a new thread for it so that people can discuss this particular issue here.

       
      With that being said, I'll just move on to the actual tutorial.
       
      New (probably better) method.
       
      Switch your SMBIOS in Clover config in regards to the dedicated GPU you're using, instead of the CPU. Take a look here and choose the corresponding SMBIOS closest to your hardware.
      Yeah, that's it.
       
      In case you lose CPU PM with this method, there are multiple ways to fix that, and they do not make the object of this thread.  It worked perfectly fine for me though and I didn't need to change anything else.
       
      Alternatively, you can also try one of the MacPro SMBIOSes, such as MacPro5,1 or MacPro6,1. It was tested multiple times and it showed good results. 
      Keep in mind that choosing these will most likely not show you an iGPU in System Report, since those machines generally (probably all of them) use Xeon CPUs with no iGPUs either.
       
      /!\NOTE: There have been reports saying that using this method (switching SMBIOS to a MacPro one) with newer versions of MacOS may cause iTunes to crash.
      So...keep that in mind and better try some of the other methods mentioned here.
       
      A simple Lilu plugin
       
      Thanks to vulgo for the plugin and @Matgen84 for sharing and testing it, we now have yet another possible solution to this issue. It's a Lilu plugin (which means that it requires Lilu.kext in order to work) it's called NoVPAJpeg, and it can be downloaded from here.
      You use it as a regular kext, alongside Lilu. I prefer (and recommend) using it within the EFI folder, in Clover/kexts/Other. But if you want to use it in S/L/E, that should work just fine.
       
      More info can be found in this post here.
       
      In case you wanna try alternative medicine  ...
       
      The main thing we need to do is actually very simple: we need to enable the iGPU (integrated GPU) by default, in BIOS, while actually being connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      For ATI GPUs (curtesy of @Cyberdevs' post here).
       
      The discreet GPU should be set as primary in BIOS and your displays should be connected to your discreet GPU
      The iGD/iGPU/iGFX must be enabled in BIOS/UEFI as the secondary GPU.
       
      I removed the DSDT Reconfigured the config.plist to and removed some flags which weren't needed because of the DSDT added the InjectATI + Ornioco Framebuffer (I removed the Orinoco framebuffer because of some weird glitches but it might be useful for other AMD GPUs if you inject the correct framebuffer according to your GPU. No need to inject anything for nVidia GPUs unless your GPU needs it) Added the InjectIntel + ig-platform-id for my intel HD530 (for intel HD 530 I use the 0x19120001 ig-platform-id)  
      Steps 5 to 7 might not be necessary I just did them anyway, if anyone succeeded to get quicklook working without those steps let me know so I can exclude those steps.

           Also confirmed to work with AMD R9 270X on a SandyBridge rig (without an iGPU) using WhateverGreen + Lilu kexts, which also helped to solve the transparency issue along with the Quick Look problem, it also resolved the buggy Screen Capture (Command+Shift+5) issue as well. 
       
          Also, do:
      nvram cleanup kextcache & prelinked kernel rebuild reboot  More info on that here.
       
       
      For NVIDIA GPUs
       
      This is what I needed for my NVIDIA rig and the MSI motherboard in the signature. Your milage may vary, depending on your hardware. But, the idea should be the same regardless.
       
         For MSi motherboads (check out my motherboard details in the signature)
       
      Set your BIOS to use PEG (dedicated GPU) so you can boot.
      Since you're reading this, chances are that you're already connected to the dedicated GPU and the BIOS is set to PEG. So just go into BIOS and see if you're using the iGPU or the dedicated (PEG) graphics device by default.
      If you're already using this, skip to Step 3 (the part AFTER Reboot). Reboot (I think you don't necessarily need to boot into the OS...but you do need to reboot at least until Clover UI) Reboot back into BIOS and set it from PEG to IGD (integrated graphics) WITHOUT removing the cable. Save Reboot again.  
         The result should be that the OS is tricked into thinking you're booting with the IGPU when in fact you're using the dedicated GPU.
       
         For Gigabyte motherboards
       
         Set:
      Peripherals -> Initial Display Output -> iGFX Chipset -> Internal Graphics -> Enabled
           DVMT Pre-Allocation -> default 64M.
           DVMT Total Gfx Mem -> default 256M Save Reboot  
         You should do this with the cable connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      You will also need to patch the iGPU from Clover config.
      1. Graphics -> Inject Intel (UNCHECK Inject Nvidia or ATI if it's checked).
      2. ig-platform-id (in my case for Intel HD 4600 Desktop) it was: 0x0d220003
       
      And use IntelGraphicsFixup.kext (now included into WhateverGreen.kext) in Clover/kexts/Other. In my particular case, without the kext, I would get freezes in Safari.
       
      Another way to activate the iGPU while having the dGPU set as primary is by going into BIOS/SAG/Graphics Configuration/iGPU and setting Multi-Monitor to [Enabled], all the rest remains on [Auto], and set Inject/Intel to [True] in Clover config.*.
       
      Thanks to @gjw for the tip.
       
      *Motherboard dependent. But the multi-monitor option might be the same regardless of manufacturer.
       
       
      This might be a bug with Mojave and it could be fixed by Apple in the future. but in the meantime, feel free to use this if it helps you fix the issue.
       
      For HP motherboards (including laptops), so far no solution, unless the BIOS somehow allows to switch from dGPU to iGPU and vice-versa.
       
      Cheers!

      I've been happily using macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G29) successfully for more than a year (all things working), but now I replaced my old Asus GTX 750 Ti card with a new Zotac GTX 1060 6GB, and it get stuck on boot just before going to the login screen (verbose boot screen attached).
       
      I've updated Clover with all its kexts, and reinstalled the Nvidia Web Drivers (using nvidia-update script), but it's still stuck in the same part. I can only enter using nv_disable=1
       
      My current Hackintosh specs:
      Motherboard MSI H110M Gaming (MS-7994) (LGA 1151/Intel H110/DDR4/SATA 3 & USB 3.1) CPU Intel Core i5-6600 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 1151 65W RAM HyperX FURY 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2133 (PC4-17000) HX421C14FBK2/16 Video Zotac GTX 1060 6GB SSD Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB HDD Western Digital Black 1TB (32MB Cache) (WDC WD1001FALS-00J7B1)  
      I've read that maybe it can be fixed patching the DSDT, but I don't know how to do it.
       
      My RunMe.app generated zip file and verbose boot screen are attached.
       
      Any kind of help is appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi I Just Bought A Hp Elite 8300 I3 3200 Desktop Computer And I Was Wondering If The Intel HD Graphics Were Going To Be Supported When I iNSTALL Mojave Or High Sierra Thanks -ALEX
       
       
      PS: What Is The Better OS To Go For On This Desktop PC : MacOS High Sierra -10.13 Or MacOS Mojave -10.14
       
                                                   Thanks Again -Alex
