    G4 Quicksilver conversion to 2019 PowerMac i9 with LED Logo in Space Grey (Updated)

    I used the drive fronts that were there and just used super glue to glue them in place then I used bonds to fill in the seams and sanded smooth

    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    Yeah, I remember that transition. I had a roommate that worked at Apple at the time and got the first Intel Mac Pro. It was an under powered Piece of crap. But by the 2008 dual CPU version they were actually cheaper and more powerful than the equivalent dell. Hell I worked at a place that was...

    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    The big question is are they gonna make desktops with PCI-E support? the DTK is a A12Z with 16GB ram and a 500GB SSD. It doesnt have any PCI-E exposed, nor does it have any Thunderbolt 3. I think they are going to wait for USB 4 when Thunderbolt 3 gets rolled into the spec before anything...

    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    Yeah I really think that this is a good thing for Apple in the long run. especially if it helps them reduce the cost. I mean a big chunk of the cost of a Mac Pro is that big Honking XEON chip if apple can replace that with something that only cost them a couple hundred dollars to make it could...

    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    While I don’t know what model you have there was a reason that only the most basic of tasks was shown today. It will be quite some time before these CPU compete with Apple Pro level products. From everything I have read there is gonna be a mini and a new MacBook announce this year. That’s it...

    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    People Apple Silicon CPUs are only ARM CPUs at the most basic level. They are highly customized. Please stop kidding your selves that you are gonna go find some embedded arm board that you are gonna be able to hack and make MacOS run on it.

    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    Nah man likely to see the T2 system get built directly into the SOC and that will put a steak thru the heart. Also if they make it so that it will only run on. "Apple Silicon" it likely won't run on just any generic ARM CPU. Apple's ARM silicon is very different than many other manufactures. it...
