My configuration is the same as you. Can you share your EFI?
Over the past few days we’ve been looking into why the GPU performance was lower on an AMD hackintosh and narrowed it down to one patch. After many tests and reboots we can now say the issue has been solved. Patches have been updated on the AMD OS X GitHub.
I've noticed a huge difference with these patches. Much better overall performance in both OpenCL and OpenGL. This is a major breakthrough!
OMG the 5900x single core score is almost twice of my 3900x's 1294 :-oI've noticed a huge difference with these patches. Much better overall performance in both OpenCL and OpenGL. This is a major breakthrough!
I've noticed there is a difference between the 38 k/patch and 39 k/patch versions. The 38 patch boosted the card over the normal levels as compared to windows. The latest 39 patch brings it right where it should be for a comparable Intel based Hackintosh.

I haven't noticed much difference in the CPU scores or performance levels between the 38 and 39 k/patches.

I think I got a monster 5900X the single core results are incredible, factory auto settings in bios. I'm contemplating the bio upgrade to F11 to see if ti changes any performance levels.
I didn't realize you could enable/disable patches like this, that's so cool!@Gigamaxx The experimental patches were merged into the base OpenCore branch. This contains both the old and the new patch. The old one is enabled by default as the one with better performance causes issues with HDMI/DP Audio. You can disable Algrey's and enable mine in the config.
Yes. It's not your patch's fault. Hm, IIRC I was getting proper VRAM downclocking at least in Catalina. Now I'm stuck with VRAM running at full 2 GHz at all times, with any combination of your, algrey's patch and Radeonboost.kext. I wouldn't mind that much but it does keep the fans audibly spinning, which is annyoing.
