If your card turns off and fans go full blast this doesn't mean it crashed. It means that you hit the maximum temperature on some component and it turned off to prevent damage. Not good! Try without PowerPlayTable and only "PP_DisableFanControl". This will use the stock card settings and prevent macOS from messing with the fans. So the card will control itself. On my card this works fine. No Zero RPM tho. If you want to keep using a PPT you need to tweak your settings in order to prevent overheat. How did you generate your current PPT?

Hi Chris

That is indeed an amazing find.

Fans are now working quiet controlled by bios.... Fan rpms are always on in idle but not audible to me, since they only turn with about 730rpm

Thanks a lot for that!!!

Makes one think what other settings there could be we are not aware of at the moment.

Anyhow, totally happy now. No further need to use any tables to tame the fans.

Regards, Mike

Apple has responded to my bug report and demand a sysdiagnose from a real Mac. Anyone in here with a real Mac Pro + Vega 64 or Vega 64 as eGPU suffering from the fan bug who is able to create a sysdiagnose?

I got one, already filed my own report, only trouble is I have the liquid cooled Vega. Maybe someone with aircooled Vega is around? Otherwise I can get you one.

so i have a problem to give out my personalinformation : -(

 

there are many of this - the file has 250MB

and i saw so much information of my network, macs, iphones, ipads and my server and the server from clients !!!

 

it's terrifying what's in there !!!!

so, how can i send it to apple direct in your bugreport?

Yeah I don’t have eGPU either, I can install the GPU inside the MacPro5,1 like normal PC.

download release here.

execute with sudo

 

sh-3.2# ./gfxutil -f PEG0

DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)

 

 

 

output is:

sh-3.2# ./gfxutil -f PEG0

DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)

Clover Properties are : PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) 

So that's Ok. 

 

Chris can you please give me a few PowerTable tries to start with and to try to find the best match for the Sapphire RX Vega 64 nitro? A lot of people out here with that card. You told that running this card perfectly correct PowerTable settings are needed but I don't know what to change to be honest.

 

 

Hey, how did you get the Clover properties value?  I got the DevicePath value, but not the Clover properties value.  How did you get that value?

Well I thought It had to be added like its mentioned here and I saw it in other forum / topics as well. But You are right only the first part is mentioned the device path. In my context it means that this is the value I use for the discovered value as devicepath with the addition of /Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)

So, the PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)  is a static value that you just entered?  You didn't look it up in IOReg?  Or anything else?

 

Oops, my bad:  Your value was determined by the result of your gfxutil:  PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0) and your addition of:  Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0), which is an arbitrary value you pulled from one of Chris's posts?

Yes exactly as described after "Oops my bad:"

Uhm, that's kinda wrong. To get your PCI-path open IORegistryExplorer or IOJones and look up your PEG0. Depending on the renames you use and the motherboards way of handling the graphics card it might be located under one those:
- PEG0/GFX0
- PEG0/PEGP
- PEG0/PEGP/display@0
- PEG0/PEGP/GFX0
- PEG0/GFX0/display@0

 

Check on which of those entries you find the "ATY,bin_image" and other "PP_" settings. This is where the controlling data needs to be injected.

Now all you have to do is look up this entry with GFX Util. In my case it is "./gfxutil -f display". Now you have the correct PCI path.

Thanks, Chris! But how did you get the second parameter, the clover properties?

thanx first

 

will better but fan RPM is near 2000 on idle

 

"Fan Speed(%)"=40
"Fan Speed(RPM)"=1996
"Temperature(C)"=29

 

and now a lot of flicker in furman test

 

indio

 

 

 

Hi sorry late...

 

Try this kext:  AMD MOD HS 700 RPM STABLE.zip

 

Only think that you need know is it: in macOs AMD Gpus not work / run seems like windows... so we fix only RPM...what you get beyond its pure benefit...:wink_anim:

I did indeed Ioreg to find name. I found it was peg0 so I got partly the PCI path with:

sh-3.2# ./gfxutil -f PEG0

DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)

sh-3.2#

 

but indeed 

/gfxutil -f display reveals:

DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)

 

So it's correct.

Well, thanks.  That answered my question.  Appreciate it!

News about my bug report. I told Apple that I can't provide any info from a real mac right now (don't have an eGPU box at the moment), but might be able doing so later on. Afterwards they accepted a system report coming from my Hackintosh. I then submitted it and a day later they told they will be looking into this issue. Shortly afterwards my case was merged with another bug report (not closed!). So that gives me some hope they will try to fix this mess. Leaves me kind of surprised as well. I expected them to just close my case due to the Hackintosh.

Hi Chris, been running your VegaTab_64.kext for awhile now without issue and recently added a second monitor.  Fan is now running high and so are temps when sitting idle.  The LED load shows mostly 0 but sometimes shows full load when not recalling doing anything.

 

Any ideas?

Well, 

/gfxutil -f display reveals:

DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) what is the correct path.

 

As soon as I apply any Table under clover device properties the card turns to black screen and blows the fans at 100% under extreme load after a while. I have to reboot. Without any settings applied my card stays stable under these same extreme conditions. Is there anybody who can tell me where to start? I tried "save" ones but also "extreme" ones with much lower voltages. I don't know where to start to get this solved because I think without these settings the card runs very inefficient (too high voltages) so I hope it can be solved.

Basically you need use with your setting as you want, and insert PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable and codes on RadeonVegaLowFansSpeed.kext 

 

Try install with kext utility this:

 

Silent Fan: already inserted settings...

RadeonVegaLowFansSpeed.kext.zip

 

After install and before restart your Mac  run in terminal this command:

 

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /

 

Restart and enjoy...

 

If not work or you need another settings, you can call me on pm :wink_anim:!! 

 

 

I have two Sapphire Vega 64's (the regular 8GB HBM2 one, not FE/LE) and this works wonderfully to take the fan temps down. THANK YOU! I have my sanity back.

 

However I am getting some crashes in C4D when rendering with ProRender, I think maybe I need to change the settings?

 

Mojave 14.1

Sysdef: iMac14,2

Proc: i9 9900k

Mobo: GB Aorus Z390 Pro

 

Also, my OpenGL cinebench fps went from 190fps down to 120fps when I installed the second card. Not sure what that is all about

 

I have attached the Sapphire cards' rated specs for reference (I have the 8GB HBM2)

@Pluskat5000Schiffe What settings did you use?

@blouse Lower FPS in Cinebench is normal in Mojave. I get like 129fps no matter what settings I use. Test your card with Luxmark and Unigine Valley or Geekbench Compute for single card performance. Luxmark also supports dual GPUs. Regarding crashes, lower your memory clock. For me everything above 1000MHz crashes after some time.
