10.12 PB Haswell-E Clover kernel patching for XCPM

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Pike, I was able to get Clover kernel patching on the fly working for xcpm. I expect this should work for the developer betas too.

E5-1650 V3 @ 4Ghz

X99E-ITX/ac

 

10.12 public beta (16A293a)

no FakeCPUID

​Currently testing with iMac 14,2 SMBIOS but I intend to revert to Mac Pro 6,1 with freqVectorsEdit.sh

 

Haswell E > Haswell

for other processors change as per https://pikeralpha.wordpress.com/2016/07/26/xcpm-for-unsupported-processor/

sysctl machdep.xcpm reveals

machdep.xcpm.mode: 1
machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count: 1

Turbo boost does not reach flatline. This is noticeable with GeekBench. I have yet to find a solution; this is no different to 10.11.

Flatline turbo boost can be achieved with NullCPUManagement + okrasit's Msr199.kext

 

Update:

Wow. It works. okrasit has patched the kernel to fix the flatline issue as well.

This is like okrasit patched but XCPM not worked.

Geekbench score better.

This code does not appear to be patching anything. With the other 2 entries instead of okrasit's code, I retain XCPM / frequency vectors and Geekbench score is the same with turbo flatline.

 

Are you looking to get XCPM working? If so we will need the results of the following:

kextstat -l | grep -y applelpc
kextstat -l | grep -y x86plat
kextstat -l | grep -y acpiplat

I will try the patches, so that mean we do not need NullCPUManagement + okrasit's Msr199.kext? by the way where u can find Msr199 kext?

 

kextstat -l | grep -y applelpc is not giving me any output, the other 2 give me an output...how to verify that applelpc is loaded?

 

 

kextstat -l | grep -y x86plat:

90 1 0xffffff7f81cb7000 0x17000 0x17000 com.apple.driver.X86PlatformPlugin (1.0.0) 737E5937-A52E-32C0-A6C2-4C026B96848C <89 81 62 39 11 7 6 5 4 3 1>

patching AppleLPC in clover now AppleLPC is loaded...

Yes. We no longer need NullCPU/Msr199.kext. This kext was posted by okrasit on this forum, perhaps have a look via Google but you shouldn't need it.

 

Now that AppleLPC is loading for you, is it working? You should be getting flatlines at peak multiplier.

So what do I need to do to run this?

My i7 5820k with another person with same mobo/cpu and near same OC's SSDT gave me perfect flat line in El Cap, same clover/etc I get less mult and never peak OC mult.

I am confused exactly how to apply this patch. I have a E5-2630v3 and I'm running Yosemite. Any way I can get this to work for me so I can make my processor always be turboin'?

You need to apply those patches via Clover Configurator and it should give you peak multi with flatlines

I've only seen patches for 10.11 and 10.12. I don't have any test systems with Yosemite so I'm no help I'm afraid. Would recommend upgrading to a newer OS if possible.

oh okay sweet! 

 

My cpu is doing x18 and x30 mostly with maybe x40 on geek bench. Should be doing x12 -> x44 using someone else's SSDT that has same cpu/mainboard/overclock and it works flawless on El Cap. Will def try this out and report back

I put xcpm performance fix 3  & all the other fixes above (Some my clover config already had) for 10.12.x from whoevers config am using. 

 

machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count: 1 = 0 for me

I only hit X419 mult, normally sits x18 to x30 even during geekbench. 

In El Capitan mult's go x12 to x44~ and it will flatline x44 give or take during geekbench. 

Scores aren't that much different oddly
