vcore 0,024v? maybe you were wrong?

 

Give high loading on CPU, you have to see correct Vcore.

 

CPU in idle time.

CPU high loading.

You are right. So, is 0.024 ok for idle?

Yes, it is strange, but any other IO-chip sensors from FakeSMC, too will show too small Vcore in idle.
But you can always look Vcore here:

VID instead of Vcore??

I didn't understand. Explain, is slightly more detailed that you wanted to tell.

Vcore is the limit of the voltage the CPU can use while the VID is the voltage the CPU uses at any particular moment depending by its frequency range. The CPU communicate the VID to the VRM (Voltage Regulator Module) which send the correct Vcore to use. (large use of google :))
 

VID --> VRM --> Vcore

 

Basically VID is it a request, VRM allow or disallow and regulate the request, and Vcore is the final the CPU uses.

if you turn off the power saving mode in your BIOS (C1E/EIST), if that is the case, you should see this value going to the max.

Yes, I know it.

I'm trying to switch from FakeSMC to VirtualSMC and also SMCBatteryManager.

It looks good at first sight, but SMCBattery manager shows me 0 cycle count on battery. ACPIBatteryManager shows correct count.

I saw, that there is fix for battery cycle count 4 months ago, but even with latest version it shows 0.

 

Is there some relation between VirtualSMC and SSDT patches? I currenty use this one (https://github.com/RehabMan/HP-ProBook-4x30s-DSDT-Patch/blob/master/hotpatch/SSDT-BATT-G4.asl) for my battery.

 

Thank you for advices.

Today I decided to give a new look to VirtualSMC. For a long time, I consider it to unstable for my legacy configuration and relied on FakeSMC as I did for years. Just searching the web, I have discovered that VirtualSMC is updated regulary, FakeSMC is not updated as a release since October. Slice has taken over the developement of FakeSMC last year, but I suspect that FakeSMC is already becoming deprecated, like Chameleon became deprecated in favour of Clover. So, if Slice of Vector Sigma see this, I ask: Is this true? Would Slice become a developer of VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC? If so, would you advise me to switch to VirtualSMC from FakeSMC on a legacy machine running Catalina?
