    Alder Lake / Big Little Compatibility with Hackintosh

    Apparently the gracemont cores can be disabled via BIOS. Any ideas if that could help with getting Alder Lake to work with OSX?

    Alder Lake / Big Little Compatibility with Hackintosh

    Yeah, that's the thing, I'm not in a major rush to upgrade, so I'm OK to wait a little (or a bit) for Alder Lake and see how that turns out with Mac OS. My 4790k isn't giving me any issues, my 5700 XT is plenty fast for me as well. But I'm prepared to accept Rocket Lake being the last supported...

    Alder Lake / Big Little Compatibility with Hackintosh

    No, I was hoping that whatever Intel processor they went with, be it Xeon or Core series, would have big/little core support which would let us upgrade to Alder Lake.

    Alder Lake / Big Little Compatibility with Hackintosh

    Bad news: there's been a leak that the next up-coming Intel Mac is going to use the Xeon W-3300 processor, which DOES NOT have big/little cores. This is rather disappointing as it would give us some hope for the next generation of processors and extend the usability of Mac OS: Source...

    Catalina 10.15.6 + 5700 XT: Crashing under load

    Yup, I had the exact same problems with the exact same card; crashes to black screen, audio still plays, crashes during gameplay in Windows but typically during load screens, crashes in Mac OS after a game has finished, random crashes too. Tried different SMBIOS, Mojave, Catalina, Big Sur...

    Alder Lake / Big Little Compatibility with Hackintosh

    That's the real question in all of this... but, suppose there isn't any kernel change to deal with little cores, I'm wondering if the i5 Alder Lake CPU with only big cores would work. There were some rumours there'd be an 8 big core only CPU as well... Here's to hoping those come out and work.

    Alder Lake / Big Little Compatibility with Hackintosh

    Does anyone how and if Big Sur Monterey and Opencore will recognize CPUs with Big / Little core setups? There are already two CPUs with this configuration from Lakefield architecture, the i5 L16G7 and i3 L13G4. Both are 1 big core and 4 little cores processors. The Samsung Galaxy Book S laptop...

    Catalina 10.15.6 + 5700 XT: Crashing under load

    I had a Sapphire 5700 XT Nitro+, it was giving me frequent black screens both in Mac OS (Catalina) and in Windows, with two different motherboards, CPU overclocked and at stock, with two different Power Supply units (both at 650w) and a whole host of offer configurations with RAM, SSD/HDD, new...

    Apple Previews macOS 12 Monterey - Available Fall 2021

    Does anyone know if there are working drivers for the 6700 XT? Big Sur only got support for 6800, 6800 XT and 6900 XT GPUs... but not the 6700 XT.

    AMD 5700 XT crashing

    Was flashing the GPU difficult?

    AMD 5700 XT crashing

    I swapped the 5700 XT Nitro+ for a Gigabyte 5700 XT Gaming OC; Not a single crash in weeks. Had to pay through the nose for the new GPU thanks to the chip shortage...but I suppose I could make up for it by selling the Nitro+.

    [Success] Radeon RX 6800 XT - Big Sur

    Thanks! I read a comment somewhere that 6700 XT support will possibly come out when the 6600 / 6600 XT are available. I hope that happens.

    [Success] Radeon RX 6800 XT - Big Sur

    Does anyone know if the 11.5 beta includes drivers for the 6700 XT?

    [Success] Radeon RX 6800 XT - Big Sur

    Uh, everything is still out of stock. And Newegg now forces bundles on buyers (GPU + CPU + Mobo, etc). They know they can make even more money this way.

    [Success] Radeon RX 6800 XT - Big Sur

    Man, I really hope the 6700 XT gets some support, it's basically the only GPU I really want, 8+6 pin for the Sapphire Nitro; low power consumption. I like to keep my builds minimal.
