[GUIDE] HWP(Intel Speed Shift) enable with full power management


171 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Any feedbacks from High Sierra ?

Using my working files from Sierra leads to kernel panics, had to delete ssdt.aml for now.

i got instant reboot if i use ssdt/ssdt-plugin1 with X86PlatformInjector.kext, was fine in sierra but no in HS

Hi, I've got what I think is full power management working on my kaby lake i5-7200U, but my cpu is using a lot more power (nearly double the watts) that it does on windows at similar frequencies. Anything that could be causing this?

thank you @Allan

I have follow guide from link, use plug in type for 4 generation + and it's work.

but my problem is in low frequency, I just get 1.3 ghz and I think my default is 800 mhz

I don't know if the minimum state for your i3 5005U are 800Mhz. The Intel's site tell's another value.

 

But did you tried what @syscl has posted here?

maybe Im wrong, but thank @Allan I'll check again
I didn't try yet, as I know HWP only for skylake + and my device is broadwell. it's work for broadwell???

Ooops sorry, I forgot it.

You can try, as I don't have this hardware, I can't confirm if it will work or not.

my cpu is a I7 7700HQ can i use this guide ?

my clover https://www.insanelymac.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=302239

it's so bad battery work my battery work only for 20M !!!! and cpu power sieving doesn't start to work when on battery

I have the same processor, and my battery is working for 2 hours max.

Did you tried this guide or found another solution?

First, I can 100% sure to tell you it work because I've tested this method about a month long! And bugman who has posted the issue in the link you post has just told me the successful result by using my method:

Use Clover to active HWP, not the kext.

Haha, I hope not to be deleted, amnesty, I recently used my HP EliteBook 2570p, 11-speed shift how to do? I use ssdtGen to generate my Core i5-3230M but the minimum power consumption 3.8W frequency is 2.1G The lowest, there is no way to about 0.88W, but I have seen MacBook 13, x version, I use MacBook 9, 2 and 12, x does not seem to work, is it necessary to change to the version mentioned above?

 

I only saw Chinese chat pictures in Chinese, I only played Chinese.

If anyone is interested, I wrote MaciASL patch for @vit9696 SSDT-PLUG.dsl Acpi sample: https://github.com/acidanthera/OpenCorePkg/blob/master/Docs/AcpiSamples/SSDT-PLUG.dsl that injects frequency vector from MP 7,1 to enable HWP/Speedshift on HWP unaware SMBIOS, i.e. iMac 17,1. It is intended to use on desktop configurations, it drops lowest frequency to 800 mHz and EPP is set to 20 (0x20). Remember to enable Speedshift in your BIOS/UEFI and use with CPUFriend kext.

You're welcome, i'm glad that i could help. HWP is a great way of lowering CPU freq in idle. Maybe this is not the best way for every CPU out there because freq vectors are very different for different CPU's, but it works.

Hey Guys i am having Intel Core i7-10870H (8 core 16 threats) and i am using smbios of MacBookPro16,4 and CPU power management is working fine but poor battery performance in mac i got aroud 6-7hrs of battery backup on Windows but on mac battery hardly last for 2hrs my dGPU is already disable don't know why it consumes more power on mac i am attaching my IOREG and DSDT any help can be appriciated.
