How to Get Intel P4600 Graphics Acceleration on MacOS

This is a specific guide based on my specific CPU but it should work for other 4th gen Haswell graphics including:

Install the required kexts

Download the latest release versions and copy the .kext files to /Library/Extensions

sudo chown -v -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions
sudo chmod -v -R 755 /Library/Extensions
sudo chown -v -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions
sudo touch /Library/Extensions
sudo kextcache -i /

Run the above code in your terminal to install the kexts in your system, or alternatively use whatever kext-installing software you prefer.

Mount your EFI partition

First mount your EFI partition. If you don’t have Clover Configurator you can do it manually like this:

diskutil list

Find your EFI partition. (In my case it’s /dev/disk0s1)

sudo mkdir /Volumes/efi
sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/efi

After you mount it, you can open Finder and navigate to your EFI partition. Open the /EFI/CLOVER folder to find your config.plist

Configure config.plist

Now we need to configure the Clover config to inject the right drivers.

  • DSDT > IntelGFX = true
  • DSDT > FixIntelGfx = false
  • Devices > FakeID > IntelGFX = 0x04128086
  • Graphics > Inject > Intel = true
  • Graphics > ig-platform-id = 0x0d220003

Just use Command+F to find each value within config.plist and change the values accordingly. For Booleans such as Graphics > Inject > Intel, just change the value to “</true>”. For strings such as Graphics > ig-platform-id, change the value to “<key>0x0d220003</key>”.

This guide should work for any 4th gen Intel integrated graphics. If it doesn’t, here are some resources that may help.
