macOS supports a wide range of Intel HD Graphics but every graphics doesn't works out of the box. This guide will enable Full QE/CI on your Hackintosh. This fix is for Hackintosh users who are having one of these above Graphics.

Before you start with this guide, get to know something about the performance. Graphics enhance the performance and helps to work smoothly. In macOS, full acceleration requires that both Quartz Extreme and Core Image (QE/CI) should work together.

Quartz Extreme and Core Image (QE/CI) should work together to enable full acceleration on macOS. It utilizes the complete Graphics capabilities. In case if you haven’t enabled QE/CI on your graphic card, you won’t be able to use your macOS smoothly and there would be lots of lags and artifacts, graphic related issues and poor refresh rate. Also the dock would not be transparent. Therefore it is very important to ensure that your graphic is working with full QE/CI.

Requirements

Intel UHD Graphics 630

Original Graphics kexts in S/L/E

macOS Sierra 10.12.6 or later

BIOS Setting
The very first step is to setup your BIOS. This guide will only include settings for Intel HD users.

To access your BIOS/UEFI, press and hold Delete key on your Keyboard. The key maybe different in your case. Refer to your Motherboard Guide/Manual.

Set Initial Display Output to IGFX

Set Internal Graphics to Auto/Enabled

Set DVMT Pre-Allocated to 64MB

Set DVMT Total Gfx Memory to 256/128MB

Save & Exit Setup.

Note :

When using Intel UHD Graphics, make sure the Display cable is connected to Motherboard HDMI/Display Port.


Mount EFI Partition

Mount EFI Partition of your system drive.

Edit your config.plist file

The next step is to edit your config.plist file and make necessary edits.

Navigate to EFI\Clover and open your config.plist with Clover Configurator.

Navigate to Acpi tab and add the following patch in DSDT section of your config.plist.

Code:

Comment: change GFX0 to IGPU Find* [HEX]: 47465830 Replace* [HEX]: 49475055

 

Code:

Comment: change HECI to IMEI Find* [HEX]: 48454349 Replace* [HEX]: 494d4549

 

Navigate to Boot tab and check the following :

 

Check -disablegfxfirmware box

Check nv_disable=1 box

 
 

Navigate to Devices section and then Fake ID section.

Under Intel GFX column, select the existing values and delete it, if any.

Under Intel GFX column, type 0x59168086


 

Navigate to Graphics tab and add the following:

 

Check Inject Intel box

ig-platform-id: 0x59120000

 

Save your config.plist file.


Restart your System

After performing all the above steps, restart your system in order to enable the Intel UHD Graphics.

Now you should be able to get your Intel UHD Graphics 1536 MB will full QE/CI. And your Dock would be also transparent.

Notes :

For macOS 10.13.3 to 10.13.6, use iMac 18,1, 17,1 SMBIOS. This will remove flickers, glitches and artifacts.

For macOS Mojave, use iMac 18,1, 17,1, 14,1 or 14,2 SMBIOS. This will remove pink screen and will also remove flickers, glitches and artifacts.
