Here's the list of every AMD CPU flag (from /proc/cpuinfo) that is accepted without error by QEMU:

"+fpu,+vme,+de,+pse,+tsc,+msr,+pae,+mce,+cx8,+apic,+sep,+mtrr,+pge,+mca,+cmov,+pat,+pse36,+clflush,+mmx,+fxsr,+sse,+sse2,+ht,+syscall,+nx,+mmxext,+fxsr_opt,+pdpe1gb,+rdtscp,+lm,+pni,+pclmulqdq,+ssse3,+fma,+cx16,+sse4_1,+sse4_2,+movbe,+popcnt,+aes,+xsave,+avx,+f16c,+rdrand,+hypervisor,+lahf_lm,+cmp_legacy,+svm,+abm,+sse4a,+misalignsse,+3dnowprefetch,+osvw,+topoext,+ssbd,+ibpb,+stibp,+fsgsbase,+bmi1,+avx2,+smep,+bmi2,+rdseed,+adx,+smap,+clflushopt,+clwb,+xsaveopt,+xsavec,+xgetbv1,+xsaves,+clzero,+xsaveerptr,+arat,+npt,+nrip_save,+tsc_scale,+vmcb_clean,+flushbyasid,+decodeassists,+pfthreshold,+umip,+rdpid,check"

Performance remains good; I should probably benchmark between this list and the previous one.

@pkostelnik What version of macOS are you using?

I just tried Mojave and it ran much slower than Catalina (the opposite of what I expected). For whatever reason, Catalina is faster on my Ryzen setup. Still laggy, but usable.

@ciparis trying actually both catalina (which started with clover) and also mojave, but trying now to change to opencore.
