Ciao...la nvidia non funzionerà mai su osx

si può disabilitarla per risparmiare batteria

Puoi usare solo l'integrata

Posso assicurarti NON sei l'unico con queste pretese ...
Ma su MacOS possiamo anche salutare la VGA discreta .......

Inserisci questo SSDT , se già NON lo hai , in Clover\Acpi\Patch , disabilita la VGA Discreta definitivamente e di conseguenza allunga la durata della batteria

Se intendi attivare la nvidia per la visualizzazione grafica/3D come su windows, come ti hanno già detto e mi ci aggiungo pure io, te lo puoi scordare. 

Se invece l'abilitazione della nvidia serve per ottenere decodifica hardware tramite essa, allora è fattibile. Nel mio clevo ho 2 distinti config per avviare i vari macOS con la nvidia o meno, quando è operativa posso usarla con macX video converter per decodifica; se il programma adobe permette di ottenere tale scopo allora ne vale la pena, altrimenti non serve a una cippa.

Vi ringrazio per il feedback, si il mio scopo è usarla per velocizzare il rendering dei progetti, ho provato ad installare Nvidia web driver e Cuda per forzare adobe after ad usare quella perché la scheda Intel offre meno di 2gb anche se la ram è 8gb, per quanto riguarda il file ssdt quando avevamo fatto la efi per il mio laptop avevamo già disabilitato Nvidia, eri stato tu gengik84 ad aiutarmi con altre due persone. Spero si possa fare qualcosa, grazie per i vostri feedback.

Si si...ma purtroppo non la puoi usare

il discorso cambia solo in quei casi rari dove il bios permette di disabilitare l'integrata da bios oppure per esempio portatili con gsync dove l'integrata è disattivata di default

Hai detto che hai installato webdriver e cuda, ma non credo che sei riuscito a renderla operativa solo con questo

per essere operativa deve essere così

e poi ottieni questo

@gengik84 no niente di particolare, nel BIOS posso fare poco o niente... credo sia il solito optimus. Con macOS serve ed è utile abilitata la dGPU solo ed esclusivamente per la decodifica hardware con i software in grado di sfruttarla. In pratica usi il potente motore della dGPU per questo e basta.

Se vedi nella sezione mojave i buoni valori di FPS con il notebook

nel caso devo modificare la configurazione delle sue acpi..

vedo di fargli un config-nVidia_enable senza toccargli niente in EFI ma disabilitando eventuali eventuali SSDT-disable_DGPU.aml e settando alcune opzioni nel config in modo possa avviare con o senza la nvidia senza andare a modificare la sua configurazione e sperando non abbia una versione di clover buggata :D

Ciao ho avuto un problema il pc va direttamente all bios se premo esc per la scelta del boot fa lo stesso adesso sto facendo dei giri assurdi per sistemare anche perchè con il reset di tutto dovrei reinstallare tutti i programmi di musica, grafica ed organizzare le cartelle e non ne ho il tempo quindi ho fatto una partizione con l'intallazione di windows ho seplicente diviso la partizione gia presente, da li uso paragon hfs e provo a copiare la mia efi archiviata vedere sel almeno riesco a fare apparrire il bootloader di clover, e poi usare la volume  recovery di osx sierra, appena reisco vi metto la efi per risolvere il problema della scheda nvidia.

Allora puoi bootare con quella e far avviare il macos installato e vedere perché non ti parte da disco, magari necessita di una reinstallazione clover

Allora tramite la usb sono riuscito a farlo partire, ho usato la partizione di recovery per non perdere i file, però ho dovuto entrare comunque con la USB ed ha funzionato i file e le app installate ci sono solo che se faccio il boot tramite la USB ho problemi con lo schermo che glitcha tutto, da lì ho aggiornato la efi con quella fatta da gengik84 tempo fa, ho usato quella perché più aggiornata con i kext etc. Ha sempre funzionato solo che ora con il boot senza chiavetta compare il logo Apple ma la barra di caricamento non si muove.

Scarica e  metti in EFI nvidiagraphicsfixup insieme agli altri kexts

metti il config-NVIDIA_YES.plist di fianco al tuo, riavvii e quando sei nella GUI di clover ti sposti su options - config e dai invio poi ti sposti sul config con cui vuoi avviare lo selezioni dando invio, esci e parti... se arrivi al desktop vedi se hai la nvidia attiva e operativa per il software con cui la vuoi usare

config-NVIDIA_YES.plist.zip

 

NB i kext vogliono tutti aggiornarti alle ultime release

Se faccio esc mi da schermo nero se provo con il bios non da segni di movimento 

Ti ringrazio per la tua disponibilità, sto avendo problemi uno dietro l'altro con questo coso, pensavo di avere risolto invece dopo il reboot ha fatto questo casino

prova un hard reset, stacca la batteria togli l'alimentazione e tieni premuto il  bottone power per un minuto

dovrebbe tornare il bios di default

 

poi riattacca tutto e prova a vedere se almeno entri nella bios

è un notebook quindi l'operazione potrebbe essere più complessa, ma mettiamo siano cause piùù comuni:

 

- batteria finito/corto (la togli e usi la sola alimentazione)

 

- surriscaldamento per cui va in protezione (soffiare delicatamente aria compressa sulle grate)

 

- si freeza (banco ram difettoso) testarli uno alla volta

      Hi,
       
      I'm new to the world of hackintosh and need some advice on how to get my Nvidia card 960 working as when High Sierra loads I have only 7mb, If I inject the Nvidia it goes to the resolution I want but then I have 0mb.  
      The High Sierra Version is 10.13.6 17G65. I have installed the latest nvidia driver and cuda driver 
      387.10.10.10.40.105 I have tried in clover configurator and ticking nvidia=1 as suggest on some forums but then I end up with a blurred background and no login box and the system hangs, If I upgrade to the latest version of clover 4741, i jest get a black screen before I get to the menu options so I am currently using 4463
       
      if it helps the motherboard is a gigabytes z170 xp-sli with an intel 660k 
      High sierra is being install on an external 128GB SSD
      Thanks for you help

      Clover r4747 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4747 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4747-X64 by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

      PREFACE
       
      I’ve used a 2015 15” MBP as my main system since it was released. I do photo and video editing in the Adobe suite regularly and have been eyeballing the performance of the latest MBP models. I’m on the road all the time, so a laptop is basically my only option.

      After the whole mess with the CPU VRM hardware flaws being made apparent by the poor power management profile shipped at release with the 2018 i9 MBP I’ve been more weary of the hardware design of MacBooks. That’s before I account for losing all USB-A ports, losing the SD card slot (‽), losing reliability and tactility of the keyboard, and losing the ESC key to the touchbar; if I compare the 2018 MBP to my current 2015.
       
      Given these flaws, I have been researching the performance situation comparing the 2018 MBP to the X1 Extreme, XPS 15 9570, and the Razer Blade 15 2018.  These are essentially the only options for a road warrior that needs a high quality panel and the best CPU and GPU that can be crammed into around 4lbs (1.8kg).  
      I used to use a ThinkPad T42p and loved it when it was new. So fast forward to now and the release of the ThinkPad X1 Extreme. It’s a truly tempting machine for an artist, given that the 4K UHD version offers just about the best color gamut available on any laptop panel. I get back the USB-A ports, get one of the fastest SD slots on any laptop, and get one of the best laptop keyboards on the market. That’s before even considering power management and modularity. I’ve been dabbling in learning Machine Learning, so a system with an nVidia GPU (CUDA) is a bonus on that front as well.
       
      For me the best color reproduction on a high resolution display panel was most important. The X1 Extreme has that, so I’ve ordered one. I got it with the fastest i7, base SSD and memory, and have separately purchased two 1TB Samsung 970 Pro M.2 SSDs and 2x16GB DDR4-3200MHz memory (just in case it’s possible to overclock the memory on the X1 Extreme). I got the system for $2,100 from Lenovo USA, and the SSDs ($390 x 2) and memory ($330) from Amazon US for a total of ~$3200.  These are easy to install on the X1 Extreme as the bottom cover is easily removed to reveal the M.2 and SODIMM slots. To compare, the 2018 MBP with the fastest i7, 32GB memory, and 2TB SSD is $4400. So I can save $1200 and get a faster system (on all counts) with a better panel and better connectivity by going with the X1 Extreme.
       
      The only thing I’m compromising is losing the big beautiful haptic touchpad and a bit more refined hardware aesthetic. Though, to be honest, I’ve kept a big thick dual-layer Tech21 case on my 2015 MBP. So I’ll actually be going down in volume and weight by moving to the more rugged ThinkPad. I think I can live without the touchpad.

      Oh, by the way, the 4K UHD panel of the X1 Extreme has touch and decent pen support! Another bonus vs. the MacBook. Though I keep a 12.9” iPad Pro around for my pen work and can’t imagine using a laptop similarly. It’s still nice to have a laptop screen actually respond when I go poke at it accidentally after switching back and forth between laptop and iPad.
       
       
      TOPIC
       
       
      So I want macOS with proper discrete GPU support on a 2018 MacBook class laptop.  That’s not possible on a pure Hackintosh as things stand, but via a macOS virtual machine it looks like it could work with what looks like some relatively bleeding edge support of PCIe UEFI passthrough.

      People have been doing this on Linux hosts to Windows VMs with some great success recently: https://gist.github.com/Misairu-G/616f7b2756c488148b7309addc940b28
      And it looks like that’s coming for macOS VMs as well: https://github.com/kholia/OSX-KVM/blob/a4fb2fd5aae871bdbc371b0cd31d4d8129d0f9ac/UEFI/README.md

      The X1 Extreme, XPS 15 9570, and Razer Blade 15 (2018) are essentially direct competition to the 2018 15” MBP. I would really like to see these three systems get some nicely fleshed out guides for getting maxed out compatibility and performance in macOS running in a VM for these systems. When I get my X1 Extreme I’ll start working on it for that one. I will post updates here. I hope to inspire others with the other two systems (or looking to get them) to do similarly.
       
       
      15” MACBOOK CLASS LAPTOP COMPARISON
       
      I chose the X1 Extreme largely because of the excellent 4K UHD HDR panel (100% of 2D AdobeRGB and 85.5% of 3D AdobeRGB, basically unparalleled), good mix of thermal performance and noise management, and overall ruggedness and connectivity.  If I were a gamer I would go with the Razer 15, but the fast low-gamut 1080p panel just doesn’t work for my purposes. If I were most concerned with aesthetics or battery life (97Wh battery for it vs 80Wh for X1E) I would go with the XPS 15.
       
      I am aware that the second 2018 refresh of the MBP is coming ~Nov 14, with the new AMD Radeon Pro Vega 16 and Vega 20 GPUs, and it looks like the latter might offer up to a 60% performance boost over the Radeon 560X. Maybe it has even given Apple enough time to update the CPU VRM along the way. This could make the performance picture more comparable for the 1050 Ti based X1E and XPS 15. I believe the 1070 Ti based Razer 15 will still win out though.
       
      Still, if you compare the fan and heat pipe solution put into the X1E vs the MBP the MBP just looks wimpy in comparison. MBP has smaller fans, less venting, and only one (smaller, thinner) heatpipe. It’s also more difficult to access if you want to put a better thermal paste or liquid metal on it.  Put simply, the thermal hardware on the MBP is basically the same design for the last 3 years and it can’t keep up with the hex-core processors. So even with the Volta 20 GPU making the MBP competitive again on the graphics end, the MBP will still be falling short on the CPU performance plane. This is before we even look at tuning options.
       
      Getting into tuning, it’s possible to improve thermal performance of all the laptops in this class by around 15-20% by using either a best in class thermal paste like Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or (if you’re willing to deal with all the caveats that come with using a conductive fluid that permeates other metals) a liquid metal interface like Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. The liquid metal gives you the best possible conducting interface, and the paste is more forgiving and easier to apply.  Further, it is often possible to stably undervolt the Coffee Lake i7/i9 available in this class of systems to further improve performance, thermals, and power consumption (generally another 10+%).
       
      Apple has deliberately made it impossible to undervolt the CPU on the MBP! This has been true since the first Skylake CPUs a few years ago. You used to be able to use a program called Volta to undervolt your CPU on macOS. This is a huge peeve for me and, combined with the general power and thermal underdevelopment, is one of the main reasons I want to get a competitor’s hardware. As a primer, the default voltage of modern CPUs is typically set conservatively high for the sake of production efficiency.  With the current generation Coffee Lake CPUs it is commonly possible to set the CPU voltage about 100 to 150mv lower safely.  This allows the CPU to run cooler and consume less power. For laptops which are thermally limited (basically everything in this new 6-core 14nm era), this also translates into better performance. It’s a tweak that actually improves reliability of your CPU. So it’s just stupid that Apple has deliberately made this impossible. Shame on them, someone else take my money.
       
      Wrapping up, my biggest quibbles with the X1E (before actually getting it) are that the 4K panel’s responsiveness is about the slowest I’ve seen on a modern panel, and it’s just really not suitable for gaming. There’s also what I consider an annoyingly high level of backlight corner bleed that I’m sure will be distracting during blackboxed video viewing. Hopefully these two issues will be fixed in next year’s iteration.
