Hi
Italian?
if so search in Italian section so we can talk with less difficulty :)
do you mean Mac Pro 5.1?
I would try with MacPro SMbios if you can but I think you do not have any negative implication
you can also test if your system does all steps for frequency and related temperature

However I have a Nvidia card and I can encode in H265
I do not think also it is iMac Pro 1.1 related problem but if you solve in this way and you have proper stepping and temperature. it is good

Hi people! :)
I would like to propose to you a different way to test our beloved Hackintosh system :) , I am referring in a special way to people who likes to overclock owned system in a not too much exaggerate and sophisticate way ;)

It is a "street way" to test using a different approach and thinking!
If you want use this simple steps.
Software needed:

1) an app to monitor your system frequency and temperature like Istat menu IPG (intel power gadgets)
I use IPG
https://software.intel.com/file/770353/download

2)
free software of color correction/special effects compositing like Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve 15
https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/suppor ... and-fusion
I use Studio version but also not Studio free version is ok for our task
This software will be installed with all default and basic parameters

3)
All high 4k and more resolution R3d video files you can download freely from link:
https://www.red.com/sample-r3d-files


For point 2 you need to register before have the chance to download software we need (no confirm email is sent but you have to fill form with some datas)

So here we go!

After installing DaVinci Resolve free version you will have on Launchpad Resolve Icon like you can see in this screen shot:

Immagine

launch DaVinci app and you will see this:

click on Untitled Project icon and you will enter on this great app used in many Hollywood Studios for spot or cinematographic task

Immagine
Previous picture is standard graphical interface for this app
Now right clic on media pool space like pictures here and select import media voice menu

Immagine
now choose previously downloaded high resolution R3d video files (more you download them more test will be longer

Immagine
you will have in this way media pool populated by previously downloaded video files

Immagine

now open IPG (intel power gadgets or similar monitoring app)

Immagine

Ok we are ready to start our "stressing" test
Please take a look to temperature and other parameters in particular way If you are using Sync all cores bios option or similar in your bios settings

Following steps will be use all cores of our CPU and in many situation also our GPU (AMD or Nvidia) so temperature will increase proportionally
ok
select with left click all video icons on media pool, right click and select "generate optimized media"
wait and listen your Cpu and GPU fans ;)

Updated to latest security OSX release
All went fine
@Gengik84 Nvidia Web patcher did the job as usual for Nvidia web driver

Hi there,

I have a similar setup with Ga-X299-Designare EX and i9 7960X, 128GB Ram, SSD Samsung NVME.

The problem is that in Resolve, all the cores are not fully working : I mean when rendering the CPU is working at 35% max (I see that in iStat).

I'm with iMac Pro SMBIOS, latest High Sierra 10.13.6, and I've tried this setup with a 1080Ti or a Vega64 and there is no change : Core not fully working.

On the real iMac Pro, I tested my Resolve session and the cores go up to 90%... So I don't understand what the problem is.

I will try next week to restart from scracth with Mojave and the Vega64 card and I will come back to you.

Hi @gprime and welcome here
have you tried the method I suggest to test cpu and gfx (high media resolution and optimized output to see if in this case your cpu is used @100% as in my case?)

You can also try different optimization in your bios cpu parameters about turbo section

Hi there and thanks for your reply !

Yes of course, we tested everything, and the only way to put all cores to 100% is in Geekbench...

In Resolve, even with a big 4K session, all cores are at max 35%.

Don't know why, I've read that it's about TSC Sync but I don't know how to proceed.

I will go ahead and restart from scratch the computer, install Mojave, and we will see.

@gprime
about TSC Synch
Have you a proper kext in your Efi/other folder
proper means a value of Number of cores/threads less 1
in my case 36-1=35
post your EFI if you want
I am on 10.13.6 because lack of support in Mojave for my Titan gfx

7960x is a 16 + 16 cores/threads Cpu so you have to put inside TSC a value of 31
32-1=31
attached a kext properly configured for your CPU
I do not think this will solve your CPU problem in all cores load..but you can try :)
