I did it again! With the release of the Navi drivers for macOS by Apple I bought a card and ported my popular PowerPlay Table generators to the RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT. Some might know I already did the same for V56/64 and Radeon VII. This tool allows you to change GPU, SoC and Memory Clocks, voltages for GPU and SoC (for undervolting or overvolting), adjust Power and TDC limits and customizing fan control. The whole thing is based in a simple Excel spreadsheet and provides you with a long Hex string you can then inject to your graphics card via Clover device properties. If you want to use it on a real Mac (eGPU or Mac Pro) you can use a Dummy Kext to inject the PowerPlay Table. Please make sure that you only run this spreadsheet in Excel! iWork, OpenOffice and Libre Office are known to do wrong calculations.

Awesome mate!

Is it possible to use this with OpenCore instead of Clover?

(Edit: Already found your other post where someone showed how to do so, thanks!)

The PowerPlay Table is injected as a device property. macOS doesn't care how you inject it (Clover, OpenCore, Kext).

I got almost identical hardware to you - but runnig vega 56 as main gpu.

Simple question: Does updating to 5700 makes any sense or should I skip to Radeon 7 instead? I bought the Vega few weeks ago for ~ 200 eu and dumped all NV gpus I had.

(I must admit that I won't be going back to {censored} Nvidia anytime soon) so I 

thought I might go all in and grab the fastest/latest. 

 

Best,

P.

I would stick with the Vega 56. If you got a reference card flash it to a Vega 64 and overclock it for more performance. AMD will likely release new Navi based high-end cards next year. This will likely be a good time to upgrade.

Yeah, Thanks for the advice. Looked yesterday at some benchmarks and Vega to 5700 seems superfluous.

I flashed it already to 64 but the bios dumps at techpowerup are a bit old. I couldn't find a working ASRock bios, 

the one uploaded there is borked - no post after flashing - flashed a powercolor but the bios itself is 2+ years old

and efi drivers is a way older then the orginal one. Can't find a recent ASRock Vega 64 dump...

Hi, which version of macOS is required?

I'm building my Hackintosh and I'm going to use a Gigabyte RX5700 XT reference card.


Can I use latest public version of macOS Catalina (10.15.1) or should I install the latest public beta?


Thank you :)

RX 5700 XT works like a charm with 10.15.1 public release. Didn't try with 10.15.2 beta but it should work.

I use WEG with agdpmod=pikera boot argument. I know for sure that without that boot argument, I get black screens but now I realize I never tried with no WEG at all. I'll try asap but i doubt it will work.

I have the problem with my Nitro+ 5700XT that the fan is spinning up every few minutes for 10 seconds under macOS. That is VERY annoying as this spin-up is much much louder than the actual noise of the fan. Could this be fixed with this tool by for example disabling that the fans stop at all?

It's not a problem and the same on Windows. Your card uses ZeroRPM which turns off the fan until a temperature threshold is reached. Fans will start spinning shortly and then turn of again. You can either try to increase ZeroRPM start temperature or turning off ZeroRPM and let the fans spin permanently.

Hi, I don't understand how should I edit the table.
Under Windows I'm stable with core at 2.000MHz (I get around 1.950MHz) at 1.050mV, memory at 900MHz. I have a Gigabyte RX 5700 XT with the "stock" blower cooler.

Screenshot_2.thumb.png.9478a3c044cd03c565aebb908099bd20.png

 

 

 

The table says that the default maximum clock is 2.100MHz, mine is around at 2.050MHz.

There are several "DPM" (I don't know what they are) for memory clock, the highest one is at 1.750MHz..

 

Also, which is the difference between Gfx, GPU and SoC?

 

 

Thank you :)

You can only adjust the memory clock. GPU clock is not possible with Navi10. PPT only allows upping the clock limits but the OC needs to be done through the driver. Since macOS doesn't offer Wattman, you can't overclock the GPU.

Just leave the default values and play with memory clock, GPU voltage, SoC voltage and Power Limit. You can still get some nice performance boost with less power consumption and heat. You could also downclock the GPU by reducing the limits. Fan curve can be adjusted as well. Every parameter is explained in the spreadsheet.

Thank you, I'll start to "play" with the table :)


As far as you know, is it possible to see Navi's clock under macOS? With my old Vega64 I was able using iStat Menus or command line, now I can't see it.
It might be helpful while adjusting voltage since under Windows I saw that the stock or an high voltage make the clock unstable.

 

 

- - UPDATE - -


Here what I changed:

[*] Power Limit (%) Maximum -> 150

[*] MaxVoltageGfx -> 1050

[*] MaxVoltageSoc -> 1050

[*] Memory DPM3 -> 1800 (tried with 1850 but mine crashes)

[*] Fan Target Temperature -> 80

[*] FanRPMMinimum -> 600

 

Before and after with LuxMark v3.1

No, Apple removed all metrix from their drivers starting with Vega20. No fan speed, no clocks, no temps. Open a bug report and tell them you want it back. The more people do it, the higher the chance Apple brings it back.

There are 3 different ZeroRPM entries. One under "Fan Control" one under "Overdrive Fan Limits" and one under "OverDrive Flags". What are the differences between them?  That said, I just set them all to 0 (the default) and it worked (fans just keep spinning now). Just wondering why it comes up 3 times.

I am injecting with OC and it does work. Post your OC config.plist.

Is there a way to pull the current configuration from the card as-running?  The reference values did not work for me, so I want to start with what it's currently doing as a baseline.  Thanks!

You can extract the values from your VBIOS Hex Dump in IOReg or if this is too complicated for you use MorePowerTool on Windows.

      Hi!
      I recently updated my hack to 10.15.2 from 10.15 and I started having issues with audio (same on 10.15.1). Every time I start a sound for ex. Youtube or in Music app, there are crackling/popping sounds when playing and browsing in Finder, Safari, etc.
      Happening on rear Green port, 1 HDMI & 1 Display port, Bluetooth speakers, even on my USB Headset.  It's very-very frustrating...
       
      Tried to replace AppleALC with VoodoHDA but nothing changed. Also tried different layout-id but same. 
       
      My specs:
      GIGABYTE Z77P-D3 (UEFI, CSM: OFF, Integrated Graphics ON (headless connection for IntelQuickSync))
      i7-3770 3.4 GHz (Ivy Bridge, HD 4000)
      Radeon RX 5700 - Connected two 1080p Monitor (1st with DP to HDMI, 2nd with HDMI to VGA)
      Audio: ALC888B - now it's layout-id=3 but tried 1 too
       
      Please help me fix this. This is the very last issue on my hack.
       
      Attaching a debug.zip.

      Hello,
       
      I am a former user of MacBook and Mac mini. Both died. One in 2014 and another last year.  I will think of giving my Hackintosh-compatible laptop to my brother that I purchased years ago, because he wants to play more than one computer, so he is a Twitch/YouTube streamer and a hardcore gamer and I will not need to lend him many times. If he wants, from my former laptop I will take only one 240GB SSD Samsung Evo with installed Arch Linux and leave one 500GB HDD for him. In the future, I will purchase a new Alienware laptop.
       
      As I got newly graduated, I moved to a new super PC with AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700X CPU and with NVIDIA GeForce™ 1660 Ti GPU. More details, you can see my signature below, that provides the complete details. I own an external SSD m.2 2280 with installed Windows 10.
       
      I will reconsider purchasing 4th drive – an external 480GB SSD m.2 2280 SATA WD Green 545MB/s or an external 1TB SSD SATA WD Green 545MB/s – for installing Hackintosh. But purchasing, I need to make sure.
       
      1. Is it worth to install Hackintosh on an external SSD m.2 2280? If I partition two partitions, one for Insansely's MyHack/Chameleon/Clover and another for Hackintosh and my new super-PC boot is natively BIOS and Grub, is it worth? Maybe I will try to install reFind on Arch Linux to replace the Grub if it is worth.
      2. I know that it will run on macOS High Sierra, Mojave and Catalina, but if I need Metal 2 to run the latest version of Sketch (the which I own an original licence) and of other apps the which I own original licences? Is NVIDIA GeForce™ 1660 Ti compatible with Metal 2?
      3. Since it be an external SSD, will I able to run Hackintosh as a portable OS in other computers?

      Olá,
       
      Eu sou um ex-usuário do último computador da Apple – Mac mini – que faleceu no ano passado.
       
      Pensarei em dar meu computador portátil compatível com Hackintosh ao meu irmão que comprei anos atrás (em referência ao tópico «Sou novo ao fórum, já fui um usuário de Hackintosh e ainda pretendo montá-lo», porque ele quer jogar mais de um computador, pois ele é um streamer de Twitch e YouTube e um jogador hardcore, e não precisarei ficando emprestando-lhe muitas vezes.
      Se ele quiser, do meu antigo computador portátil, pegarei apenas um SSD Samsung Evo 860 de 240GB com o Arch Linux instalado e deixarei um HD de 500 GB para ele. No futuro, comprarei um novo laptop Alienware.
       
      Como me formei no início deste ano, mudei-me para um novo supercomputador cujo processador é AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700X e cuja placa de vídeo NVIDIA GeForce ™ 1660 Ti. Há mais detalhes que posso fornecer-lhes na minha assinatura abaixo. Possuo um SSD m.2 2280 externo com o Windows 10 instalado.
       
      Reconsiderarei a compra da quarta unidade – um externo SSD m.2 2280 SATA de 480GB 545MB/s da marca WD Green ou um externo normal SSD SATA de 1TB 545MB/s da marca WD Green – para instalar o Hackintosh. Mas antes de comprá-lo, preciso ter certeza.
       
      1. Vale a pena instalar o Hackintosh num SSD m.2 2280 externo? Se eu criar duas partições, uma para o MyHack/Chameleon/Clover do InsanelyMac e outra para o Hackintosh, e a inicialização do meu supercomputador é nativamente BIOS e Grub, vale a pena? Talvez eu tente instalar o reFind no Arch Linux para substituir o Grub, se valer a pena.
      2. Sei que macOS High Sierra, Mojave e Catalina funciona com o processador AMD Ryzen™, mas se eu precisar do Metal 2 para executar a versão mais recente do Sketch (a qual eu possuo uma licença original) e de outros aplicativos cujos possuo as licenças originais? O NVIDIA GeForce™ 1660 Ti é compatível com o Metal 2?
      3. Como é um SSD externo, poderei executar o Hackintosh como um sistema operativo portátil noutros computadores?
