Sleep works for Coffee Lake UHD 630 iGPU in High Sierra

So I got my first Coffee Lake & Z370 combo yesterday and of course the first thing I did was install macOS on it to mess around and figure out how to get full iGPU acceleration working.

For reference I’m using a GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS Gaming 7 (an amazing motherboard) and an i3-8350k as I wait for my i7-8700k to come in the mail with High Sierra installed on a Samsung 960 EVO NVME SSD.

Coffee Lake UHD 630 Graphics Sleep in High Sierra

I left my computer for a bit and when I came back of course the hackintosh was asleep since I forgot to disable sleep which is what you do on a hackintosh when iGPU is used to avoid the black screen issue on wake on HD530/HD630

Out of habit I shaked the mouse as I usually do with a dGPU plugged in and to my shock my hackintosh actually came out of sleep over integrated graphics. I know it was asleep because the fans were off. I was like WTF proceeded to sleep it 5 more times to make sure I was seeing things.

So that there you go I can confirm UHD 630 Coffee Lake iGPU sleep/wake works in High Sierra without the black screen problem. So if you want a super small HTPC hackintosh in a case that doesn’t fit a graphics card or don’t want to shell out more money for a dGPU for sleep it’s now a possibility 🙂
