Haswell E Powermanagement yet another option

105 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Don't know whether someone is still running a Haswell E, besides me.

CPU Powermanagment is one of the hurdles on the way to Sierra on a Haswell E.

Apple offers two CPU Powermanagement solutions, one is xcpm and the other the AppleIntelCPUManagement.kext. 

Both will not work ootb with the 5960x, but there are good news, they do not crash the system either.

 

There ist the all you can patch solution from Piker Alpha. Which will get you xcpm. 

There are two kind of patches. Those which patch data and those which patch program code. The first one is usually more resilient to version changes. If your patch renames a device called SKF345 under 10.25.1 you can assume that the device will still be called SKF345 under 10.25.2 and your patch will still be valid.

Programm code patches are more fragile. The commands might be compiled differently or  might just have been moved and if the patch is also bound to a location, the patch will fail. 

So after installing an update the probability that the patch will no longer work is greater than with a data patch. 

And you will need different versions for El Cap and Sierra 10.2 and every further major version and probably every minor version as well.

Somebody more acquainted with those patches might tell you whether it is only a recommendation or a requirement to create a SSDT for the P-State Table. 

I didn't try that option, it felt too "invasive".

 

If you do not use the patches, the system will run at fixed frequency and voltage wasting energy,

There is one simple way to save some of that and that is using C-States. Especially C1E comes to the rescue. When an processor is idle, it will cut the frequency to (in the case of the 5960x) 1200MHz.

When you look a a monitoring program this will look like real (read P-State) power management. It only looks like it, because the monitoring software will display averages over time and cores and so it will look like the cpu is running at multiple frequencies, but in fact it is running at 1200 or whatever your max. non-turbo frequency is, the steps in between are just "mathematical artefacts".

On my system it will not switch to turbo mode, I can force it to do so, by disabling EIST and setting TURBO Mode in the BIOS.

Now the Frequency will switch between 1200 and the turbo frequency. 

Note that when you overclock your system using the multipliers, you will only change the turbo multiplier, so you will have to make sure that your system can switch to turbo mode.

This method has two major advantages,

  1. If you can have turbo mode without EIST, it's easy to install and will most likely pass all updates until a major change in Apples CPU power management happens.
  2. It's high performance. The latency is in the very low micro seconds, so switches will be very fast and this will result in good performance. The latency of an P-State solution is typically in the 10 to 100 millisecond range. That's 6000 to 60000 times slower,

The disadvantage being lower energy savings.

I used that option for two month and was content, mainly because I'm more interested in performance than maximum energy saving.

 

Still over time, I started to wonder whether it would be possible to have P-State support without all those patches.

 

So I wrote PmDrvr.kext.

You put it in the kexts/other folder of your Clover installation.

If you have NullCPUPowermanagement.kext installed, you can remove it.

In the BIOS you choose the options you would normally choose, that is turbo enabled, EIST enabled, and C-States as you prefer, which usually means enabled.

The kext will implement P-States. It uses the turbo frequency set in the cpu register by the BIOS, ignoring any SSDTs. So you do not have to worry about that.

If you have to put a number to it it will use Turbo Multiplier - 11 different P-States.

 

It's easy to install and should survive all updates until a major change in CPU power management happens.

It is slower than the last method, because the latency is larger, but the energy savings are higher.

 

I only tested it wth 5960x under Sierra it should work with other "Haswell E"s with more than 4 cores.

I check for an Haswell E, it will not work with other cpus or cpus with less than  5 cores. I do not have a Broadwell, but if there is interest I can prepare a version to test.

I only tested it under Sierra, but it can't see why it wouldn't work under El Cap. I will not hazard a guess  whether it will work under Yosemite, that's just too far back for me to remember,

 

It only handles P-States, it doesn't address any other problems.

It is a replacement for NullCPUPowermanagement.kext.

Let me know if it works for you.

Kudos to David Elliott, who wrote the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, I used his way to disable AppleIntelCPUManagement.kext

Thanks Brumbaer, nice to get low states (1200) back at idle. Also nice to not deal with all the Kernel patches. Using pmdrv.kext is still permitting sleep to work on the X99 box in my sig but once again cpu won't max after coming out of sleep. Any ideas?  Thanks-

Sorry, I wasn't exact enough. I was talking about frequencies.

Have you got a tool that shows the current frequency like Intel Power Gadget ?

 

When you run the CPU test in Cinebench, the frequency will max out. If you don't overclock that will be 3.7 GHz.

When you do the same after sleep it would be interesting to see what frequency it will max out at. I assume 3.5 GHz, but it would be good to be sure.

You solved the problem with the wrong P- and C-States!

 

I use your kext with xcpm and get all P-states and same low power consumption in idle.

 

No longer a jumping frequency.

 

I only use 2 additional patches.

 

First i enable EIST hardware coordination for correct msr settings (0x198/0x199) and another one for setting msr 0xE2.

 

Without EIST hardware coordination, i get very low (600MHz) states for Target performance State Value.

 

 

Perfect job!

 

 

EDIT: Sleep is working perfect too, GB scores are the same after sleep!

I only tested it wth 5960x under Sierra it should work with other "Haswell E"s with more than 4 cores.

I check for an Haswell E, it will not work with other cpus or cpus with less than  5 cores. I do not have a Broadwell, but if there is interest I can prepare a version to test.

 

Hi Brumbaer, great job. Can you prepare version for Broadwell-E? I have 6900K processor, so i can test it. Thanks.

You solved the problem with the wrong P- and C-States!

 

I use your kext with xcpm and get all P-states and same low power consumption in idle.

 

No longer a jumping frequency.

 

I only use 2 additional patches.

 

First i enable EIST hardware coordination for correct msr settings (0x198/0x199) and another one for setting msr 0xE2.

 

Without EIST hardware coordination, i get very low (600MHz) states for Target performance State Value.

 

 

Perfect job!

 

 

EDIT: Sleep is working perfect too, GB scores are the same after sleep!

 

 

Hello SammlerG, can you share with me your config with patches you are using with this Brumbaer kext? Thanks.

and PMDrvr.kext sleep works fine and no difference on benchies before or after wake from sleep. The up side is lower P-states on idle. I'll post some screenshots shortly but was hoping to eliminate some of these kernel patches. 

 

If I blow out the patches sleep doesn't work...

Benchmarks are fine, but i noticed some performance lost when single core Apps running.

 

Exporting PDFs from InDesign is slower when this kext is installed. InDesign CC program code is not the best...

 

I got max. performance without xcpm and the new kext, but no C-States and high power consumption at idle. Export time 1m 51sec

Old patches with xcpm, export time is 1m 54 sec.

 

The new patch with xcpm is from 2m 04sec to 2m 25sec. I can see that the CPU don´t stay at max. when a single core App is running, it drops very quick and fast down to x12.

 

When this kext is installed, i read out msr target 0x199 with 600mhz, it should be min. 1200?

 

Can you change this, and is it possible to optimize this kext?

@SammlerG

If you run without patches and kext, you should see frequency jumping if you have C1E in BIOS enabled.

 

 

I'm confused about the kext/xcpm thing. Do you run them together ?

This was never meant to run together with xcpm. Worst case they fight each other.

 

If you run it without xcpm(patches) what will happen ?

 

C-States ? Yes/No

P-States ? Yes/No

Performance slow in Single Thread ?

Performance slow always ?

yes, i did a test with both, the kext and the xcpm patches.

 

And with only the kext, no FakeCpuId, no xcpm patches.

When i use only PMDrvr.kext without xcpm, i get best performance, but no C-States. Only P-States.

 

CPU idles down to x12, but temps are higher and more power consumption.

 

Same as NullCpuPm but no jumping frequency

I do not touch C-States or any C-State related msr.

 

So this begs the question whether  C-States are enabled in BIOS and if so, if you switch them off with some other option or if something goes awry.

 

What are the values of MSR 1FC (C1E enable) and MSR E2 (C-State control) ?

Hi Brumbaer

Thank you for broadwell kext

I have a broadwell EP Xeon 2696 V4 and this is my bench with your kext installed

 

It is a little worst than previous but the strange thing is Don't see high turbo frequency in graph

Maybe because I am in auto modo under cpu bios settings

 

I have to use always fakecpuid for broadwell to boot

 

edit

added opeGL test

bad in my case because also in manual cpu way I can't read higher turbo frequency if few cores are used

I do not touch C-States or any C-State related msr.

 

So this begs the question whether  C-States are enabled in BIOS and if so, if you switch them off with some other option or if something goes awry.

 

What are the values of MSR 1FC (C1E enable) and MSR E2 (C-State control) ?

C-States are enabled in Bios

 

With your kext, idle power is higher (2-3x) and temperature also.

For 6850k looking good 

Its without any xcpm patches? Only with Brumbaer kext?

 

EDIT: I can test my 6900K tomorrow... I'm not at the computer today.

C-States are enabled in Bios

 

With your kext, idle power is higher (2-3x) and temperature also.

 

Can you put numbers to it ?

 

When Idle my system will show 1.2GHz and about 38W. Temperature about 37-38 Degrees. All values from Intel Power Gadget.

I think that's not good run xcpm and kext together... as Brumbaer says "This was never meant to run together with xcpm. Worst case they fight each other."

Thank to you all for the information.

 

@SammlerG

When xcpm shows 11W, is the frequency displayed in Intel Power Gadget still 1.2GHz or lower ?

 

I'll look into it tomorrow.

the min. frequency is 1200 MHz. 

 
It seems that xcpm enables C6 and cores will use c3+c6.
 
When i use your kext + xcpm i got from msr 0x199:
 
RDMSR 199 returns value 0x600
RDMSR 198 returns value 0xc00
RDMSR 199 returns value 0x600
 
but msr 0x199 should min. set to 1200 MHz for Haswell-E.
 
I think the problem is msr 0x199 and set this to 0x6 instead 0xc, and so the CPU throttles to fast and quick.
 
Maybe the P-States injected from your kext are false?
