@CMMChris Can the POWERPLAY Table be extracted from Windows 10 and inserted into macOS Mojave for identical performance?  Windows 10 runs my ASRock Vega 64 perfectly and would love to replicate in macOS if possible.

 

Thanks!

 

Well, yes it can.  The PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable doesn't show up normally, but if you download MSIAfterburner and load it up (your AMD Vega card does not have to be MSI, btw - my Vega 64 is an XFX), and go into settings and tick "show extended power adjusts" (Thanks Max!!), the PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable will show up in the registry.  You will have to massage it some to get the tables to hex version (so that they will show up like the "B6020801 0050....., etc"    like CMMChris shows a lot in his VegaTab kexts).  Then you can convert them using a couple of different methods.  Iodine131 outlined one method in this thread - check page 11 of this thread, his post dated June 21 for that method.  If you add in the hex version using Xcode, and then save the file (info.plist), and then open that in Clover Configurator, it will show you the version (text) that usually starts with TGII....

Installed Afterburner but can't find an option under the General tab called Show Extended Power Adjusts.  You also said the table will show up in Registry.  How do I find that?

 

The only reason I care is because CMMChris's kext causes coil whine after a few hours.  Rebooting resolves it but I don't know if it's doing damage.  Was hoping copy/pasting the powertable from win 10 to macOS would be the safest bet but after reading more posts in this thread, doesn't look like it's the perfect solution either.

Hi.
I've tried VGTab-en  without sucess.

im getting frezes on Unigine Heaven test, FCPX, Premiere..
Tried lots of things and nothing.
Is the  AMD10000Controller.kext the solution?

thanks!

@douirc A Windows PPT won't fix your coil whine. You also have the coil whine under Windows when your card is under load. The reason you hear it more under macOS is that the Vega card is used more intense for UI rendering. If you want to lower the coil whine you need to lower your GPU clock. I will post a PPT for you to try once I am on my hack.

@hugeschnauzer If you get freezes you are using the wrong settings. Please tell me what card you have and which VGTab settings you use.

So, here's a screen shot.....it shows the settings for MSIAfterburner which puts PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable into the registry, (for me, after a reboot)

I should note that the 30200 kext (the one labelled "best") matches the Windows built-in Vega configuration performance for a Vega 64 XFX card ONLY (do not use for any other card!!) almost exactly.  Fan speeds, Luxmark results, temps, pretty much the same.  It might pull more power, but I can't tell.

 

The 29500 kext has more moderate settings, with lower initial power (I think I set it to 100).

 

Finally, I ran Heaven on both and some other tests, but I got a very good score with the 30200 kext (again the one labelled "best") at 1080p.  On Heaven, it appears to run hot (according to Heaven), but the temps that I got from running the ioreg script in terminal were much lower......don't know why, but it completed Heaven just fine.   Got a good Metal score on "compute" from Geekbench (around ~220000)

 

Of course.....YMMV......we all understand that, right?

Very good Meagan!!! Im prefer use my to stable kexts. And one them its not so high performance, but im have stable fan on 700-1000 rpm. Another, with very good cooler and high performance stable on 1600-2200 rpm and 213000 bench. Im found this way, but im can't believe to much in VegaTab app... good for all that works fine...im use okrasit settings and little bit adjusts on regedit from Windows...Good news for all!! Im guess...:D

Thank you very much!!! Used this kext inside Clover , but didnt get good resuklts in Cinebench .. around 20fps less.. any idea?

Do i need the AMD10000Controller.kext change inside Extensions also?
Im on Mojave

No, don't change system files. Might be overwritten by updates. Either inject your PPT by Kext or Clover Device Properties method. Put this inside your Clover config.plist as shown in the screenshot.

This should give you around 28k in Luxmark, 190,000 in Geekbench and a silent card.

Well, which one did you use?  The 29K one or the 30 one?  And 20fps less than what?  What were you using that was 20fps more?  And no you shouldn't change AMD10000Controller.kext.  In fact, you should have a plain vanilla unmodified original AMD10000Controller.kext to use with these kexts......

 

This all depends on the method you use.   Max prefers to modify AMD10000Controller.kext, and that's perfectly valid.  

 

But my method, and also Chris's method, best I can tell, is to leave AMD10000Controller.kext alone and just use VegaTab to create a kext to influence the performance of the Vega card in macOS, applying it by adding a kext in Clover - Kexts - Other, or inserting the configuration generated by VegaTab via the Clover - Devices configuration page of Clover Configurator.

 

I would suggest you choose one of the two methods, and not mix the two of them, as that will produce erratic results.

 

The main reason I posted my kexts is because I have an XFX card, which has been denigrated in this forum, and other places, and little development has been done on it.  I wanted an XFX Vega 64 working kext posted from a real user of an XFX Vega 64 card to be available for XFX Vega 64 owners.

 

And both of the kexts I posted run well on my system and produce great results.  Are they perfect?  No, they are not.  They produce respectable results.  BUT, they are ONLY for XFX Vega 64 cards!! If you're not satisfied, then you should spend some time with VegaTab and see if you can produce a Kext that gives you the results you need.

 

Good luck.....!

Will try man!!! so glad to hear that!! Im facing crashs since i bought the machine.!! Thank you very much. Really!!
I wil, put this inside Clover, but what kext i do need to use?

im on Mojave. Ok?

Awesome Meagan!! No words to thank you all!!
Its more logical for me to do not touch the extension, since it will be updated someday as Chris said.

About my test (Cinebench 110fps / 20fps less) was using both kexts u post. The best one and another version.

But i just used then inside EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS

What do i need to do now? (im on Mojave. Ok?)

1 - Move VEGAbest to EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS

2 - Paste this inside Device Properties into Clover? (thanks 4 your time!)

Either one will work:

1.  Move the 30Best kext to EFI\Clover\Kexts\Other (or 10.14).  Put it in the folder where all of your other kexts are..

OR

Insert the values you have already in inside Device Properties.....what you have looks okay, but make sure you are using a text editor to do this.  IF you intend to use Plist Editor Pro or Xcode, you can't use the TGII as this is text and won't work there (there you would have to use the hex version (B602.....").  I don't think I still have the hex output for those two kexts that I posted.

 

Either method will work, but just do one of the two.  If you choose one and it doesn't seem to work, delete that method and use the other.

 

For me, it's easier to just if I want to change or alter the performance of my card to just delete the kext from EFI\Clover\Kexts\Other (that's where I keep all of my Clover kexts),  and replace it. 

 

But there are probably good reasons/arguments for doing it the other way too.

 

And, I want to be very clear to everyone:  The kexts I posted should work with an XFX Vega 64 card.  I am not advocating the use of these kexts for any other card.  Will they work with other Vegas?  Probably, but they are configured and tested on my XFX Vega 64 card and so are specific to my XFX card....

Thanks Megan!!!

I copied this text properly with plist into Config.

but nothing changed. Doesnt mtter what i do... remove the kext, for example. I cant get the 130/140fps in cinebench anymore :-(

Does it work on Mojave? what could be happening?

I don't use that method, so I can't help you as to why it didn't work.   I am on Mojave, and using the method I use, (which is to copy the kext into EFI\Clover\Kexts\Other) these kexts work fine.  I have tested them with Heaven, Luxmark, and Geekbench (compute).  I work on this computer every day, and I've had no issues.  The 30Best is the one I use, but if you're feeling like you want to be safer, you could use the 29300kext, or even use one of Chris's kexts (like the one he says give you 28000 on a Luxmark).

 

Be careful with Plist Editor Pro if that is what you used.  For that editor, you must have the hex version of the configuration data, and I don't have that.  If you copied the TGII.... into Plist Editor Pro, it will fail.  If you used TextWrangler, that would be okay, but then I really don't know what happened and why it wouldn't work.

 

As I said in another post, I only copy the 30best kext into EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other, because for me, that is so very very very much easier.  Much easier to change as well.

 

If I were you, I would copy the current config.plist to another place (say on your desktop).  Then I would take the remaining config.plist that should still be in your EFI folder and delete that insertion method entirely, (and I do mean ALL of it - every bit of it, all the tables you entered and devices for the Vega card) and copy the 30Best kext into EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other and reboot and test.  (Remember, you have your original config.plist with all of your previous configuration data for the insertion method sitting on your desktop).

 

If that works, then there is something wrong with your insertion method, and that you would have troubleshoot on your own.  But to revert back to your insertion method, all you would have to do is remove the config.plist (the one that doesn't have the insertion method anymore) and replace it with the one (the config.plist that should still have your initial attempt using the insertion method) on your desktop.

 

Okay, I've got things I need to work on, so I have to move on.  Hope that's helpful.....

I've tried both methods..

crashes again in FCPX... :-(

In Unigine tests i see rpm changes 

 

The console error i get is:

 (com.apple.DumpGPURestart): Service only ran for 1 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 9 seconds.

If you using GM Mojave final  - in my opinion is not good for Vega Cards...maybe you need try use betas developers program ... if you want post your config.plist I will inject for you test (hide your serial number SMBIOS)

 

 

"Fan Speed(%)"=22

"Core Clock(MHz)"=132

"Memory Clock(MHz)"=500

"Fan Speed(RPM)"=1125

"Temperature(C)"=60

 

Im using little bit more quiet fan

Okay, this is my final shot on this topic.......

 

First of all, I haven't loaded FCPX in a long long time, but just in case, I decided I would see if I could reproduce your issues.   The short answer is:  I couldn't.

 

Running with the VegaTab_Best kext, I first loaded Bruce X 5K test.  If anything could crash FCPX (10.4.3), this should be able to.  Then I exported it at 5K (5120x2700).  In less than 10 seconds it outputted a complete final movie and it was perfect.  It ran flawlessly.

 

Then I opened an older project, about 2 minutes long.   It was loaded with special effects, color corrections, transforms, 3d text, customized audio, stabilization, etc.  I exported it and again, FCPX flew through it with no problems, and quickly, very quickly produced a final project, and it was, again, flawless.

 

I really don't know what kind of computer you are running, but it appears to me there's more going on with your system than just the graphics card drivers. 

 

At any rate, if my kexts don't work for you, work with Max or CMMChris and use their configurations, and, at this point, just work with them.   On the previous page, CMMChris posted a config that might work for you using the insertion method.....try it!   I can't help you any further than I have.

 

Sorry it didn't work out for you.

Hi Megan! I really appreciate all the help here!
Im very frustrated. I've tried lots of fixes.
Sometimes BruceTest crashes, sometimes Unigine Valley or Adobe premiere adjusting color..
Im getting crazy. really. 
I've tried the another method here. and nothing.
Im in Mojave now, but 10.3.5 is the same.
With RX 580 i had the same issue. Moved to Vega 64 and crash again..
Bios settings, ID's, DSDT's.. nothing can help me.

Asus Prime A Z370 - 8700k

 

I lost tooo many hours trying. Im considering to change my hardware. 
But who is the problem here? Mobo? GPU? Tried remove memory too  .. but no sucess

 

Thank you very much. 

greetings from Brazil

 

Rodrigo

No, don't change system files. Might be overwritten by updates. Either inject your PPT by Kext or Clover Device Properties method. Put this inside your Clover config.plist as shown in the screenshot.

This should give you around 28k in Luxmark, 190,000 in Geekbench and a silent card.

Fala Rodrigo meu brother!!!

 

Se precisar podemos conversar em Português!! Precisava saber sua configuração da BIOS, se está usando a aceleração de hardware de sua possível placa HD intel, se seu processador é intel...isso influencia muito nas placas como a AMD RX Vega. 

 

Estou às suas ordens, pode mandar msg privada ou se quiser pega meu WhatsApp...abraços!!!
