Post Install Graphics\Hardware Question

Recommended Posts

As you can surmise from the title, I've gotten 10.9.0 Niresh successfully installed. Ah was that fun... Anyway, I have a NVIDIA EVGA GTX 660 Ti for my graphics card which required me to set the GraphicsEnabler=No option on boot, got that all taken care of.

 

Now I've tried some games any they work beautifully, some even better than on their WindowsLinux counterpart surprisingly with the exception of a flickering issue. But I have another game that seems to run absolutely horridly and requires me to set all of my graphics settings to low, but doesn't have that issue on Windows. Now it wouldn't be too big of a stretch to say that the game just has a poor Mac port, but based on videos of the game on Mac, it seems like it runs just as smooth, and there's undoubtably some things that are done better in the Mac version anyway. At the risk of being mocked for playing this particular game, it's Duke Nukem Forever.

 

I'd go ahead and test it on my own Mac, but it's and old Mac Mini with Intel graphics that's slow on its own so... Not gonna help me, heh. Essentially, I was wondering if I might be missing something or if the hardware should be functioning automatically. I tried downloading this NVIDIA CUDA thing and it didn't seem to make much difference. Oh well, any help or information would be hugely helpful.

 

I haven't yet added my system specs to my signature or anything, so I'll add them to this post:

 

MOBO: MSI Z87M GAMING
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-4770K OC'd @ 4.2 GHz
GPU: EVGA GTX 660 Ti
RAM: Ripjaws X 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 2133MHz

 

Edit:

One more thing, I was wondering if there was a way to set my GPU's performance mode. On Windows I had this program force my GPU into Performance Mode 2 so it would constantly stay at 1045 MHz and wouldn't throttle or dynamically adjust the frequency that caused stuttering with certain games.

    • Sierra installed without any issue, but cannot get GT620 to work. Installed Cuda and Webdriver and boots without issues, but home screen wallpaper disappears and screen becomes black. Is this card supported on Sierra?
    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
