Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

729 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me with an issue creating the kext for my card.

 

I have the ROG Strix Vega 64, I am able to use the RadeonVega56AirCoolingFansFix file made by wyhct without any issues. When I log in, the fans don't spin up and whenever I'm in an app using the video card, the fans will spin up like they are supposed to. 

 

However, when I make the kext myself using the instructions in this thread with the MorePowerVega64strix.reg, it is not working correctly. When I boot up the machine, the fans do not spin just like they are supposed to not do, but when I try to do anything graphically intensive, the fans continue to not spin at all until the entire machine freezes up and I have to do a cold boot. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. 

 

For some reason I cannot attach files in the forums, so I'm sending a link of my files that I have on Dropbox. This is the reg that I'm using to modify the kext and the modified kext which doesn't work correctly on my system. Any advice or help would be appreciated!

Has anyone created a table that stops spinning the card's fans when it reaches 55º or lower? I'd like my Sapphire NITRO+ Vega 64 (not LE) to have the same behaviour as when running under Windows.

Installed Mojave with whatevergreen and my RX Vega 64 XTX(LC) is running much quicker!

Yes I know! Mojave is great with the Vega. Better than windows now.

The 10.13.6 latest seems to have got the same treatment. For me anyway.

They're finally getting the Vega working as it should.

Can you comment on the difference in temps? My Vega crashed a couple of times on Mojave when I was running the speedup kext and was running quite hot...

I'm not using any powerplay kext, only whatevergreen with the Mojave driver. Just played 2 hours of Tomb Raider 2560x1440p @ 144hz and the highest temp I saw was 47c with the fan set to 2200RPM. 1326035842_ScreenShot2018-06-29at8_23_32PM.thumb.png.465bd2fedc1703f70420b8f7f096fc28.png

Hi, can you make a few more version for Vega FE 16GB Air-Cooled Core Base 1382MHz, Core Boost 1600MHz, Memory 1890MHz (945MHz)

 

Core: 1382MHz, Memory: 945MHz, Temp target: 70, Idle fan: 700rpm
Core: 1442MHz, Memory: 945MHz, Temp target: 70, Idle fan: 700rpm

Core: 1600MHz, Memory: 945MHz, Temp target: 70, Idle fan: 700rpm

Can you run Unigine-Valley with Extreme HD Preset!?

My Vega 64 Liquid Cooling crashes and it is slower than the 290X on Cinebench.

I am using macOS 10.13.5 with Whatevergreen.

What was your score on extreme hd?

My temps maxed out at 67, score 2905.

My Vega is ex. air FE with an EK waterblock and a water bios in it.

With Mojave, at least with the build 18A326h, to get the fan going, the temperature target needs to be brought way down (below 30C). The temperature reading from the driver seems weird (too low). It's behaving way different from High Sierra.

While Luxmark's luxball scores well, anything compute heavy runs like {censored}. High Sierra's performance is around 30% better. :censored:

Ok, I got the performance issue sorted. :surprised:

That's with core @1482MHz

That is very fast for such a low core clock.

How did you fix it?

Can you explain how to fix the fan issue. Which fan values have to be modified and what do the values mean for e.g. fanMinRPM and fanMaxRPM.

 

I found it out myself by reverse engeneering the Softpowerplay-Data.

I see the same Mhz numbers under LuxMark on Mojave developer seeds. Performance is fine, so I think it's just a bug in LuxMark.

Does the trick with plist still work on Mojave public beta 2? My MacPro 5.1 freezes at the end of boot process after making the plist change (at the end of the grey apple logo progress bar). Booted into recovery mode and the plist was back to original version (on its own), but stil can't boot into normal desktop.

I got back to the default plist, didn't realize that a different image is mounted as root in recovery mode... But still can't get the modified plist to work in second Mojave beta.

I don't understand how to make these kext..... What am I missing? I found one that someone else has made, but that was the base clocks. I want to test the higher clocks speeds etc. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

does anyone know how to adjust the sensitivity of the fan speed? I create my custom text using the power table editor, but It seems like the fan speed change is delayed according to a temperature change(lag behind). Does anyone know the solution to this? Thanks a lot!

The MorePowerVega64LC.reg SoftPowerPlayTable is one Line shorter than the others.

Can that be correct or is the File faulty?

I will do some more testing.

With the SoftPowerPlayTable.

Yep, my SoftPowerPlayTable didn't change - under High Sierra, Luxmark shows a Clock of 1642Mhz. Under Mojave, it shows 945Mhz. It's either a bug in Mojave, or a bug in Luxmark. It really doesn't have anything to do with my SSDT changes. 

 

In any case, the wrongly displayed clock speed of the GPU doesn't seem to impact performance - it's just cosmetic.
