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

    I am beginning to think that Hackintoshing may be over much sooner than Apple stops supporting Intel since Big Sur is likely the last macOS to load kexts. The replacement System Extensions may not load the exetensions early enough in the boot process to facilitate hackintoshing, and even if it...

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

    I agree. If you want to stay with macOS, start saving money today. When do you think you are likely to buy an ARM Mac? My thinking is: The next two years will be messy, everyone is busy with transition, hardware and software, Rosetta 2, Universal 2, etc. while maintaining the Intel hardware and...

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

    Exactly. We only heard "fast", "fluent", but zero hard data. And all they ship now is an iPad processor and you are forbidden to publish benchmarks. If the new Apple Silicon is so much better, why not ship and benchmark it? Furthermore, the new ARM iMacs will probably hit the market only next...

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

    I was on Arch and loved the package manager. The options are endless on Linux, the result in realty is you can choose between ten different desktop environments but none is even close to the Mac desktop. All coding efforts for a desktop are splittered instead of focused. Same with file systems...

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

    KDE! I have used Linux and KDE for many years until around 2012 when I really got fed up with this endless buggy trashy software. They had a "nice" mail app, KMail. Akonadi was the backend cache server, that just didn't work and lost mails again and again and again. The copy of Spotlight search...

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

    Hi All My thinking: (1) Hackintosh machines face the exact same fate as any Intel Mac currently in operation. Does that imply long support? Not in my view, because of see (2). (2) Apple has proven to be reckless with transitions and cutting backwards compatibility in the past. I think the...

    RAID 5 in a hackintosh?

    I am dropping in here although the thread is dated, but not the issue. I plan to build a Hackintosh and would like to have a hardware raid with either Highpoint or LSI. Is it correct that I can install and boot the macOS from the hardware raid that sits in the PCIe slot? I do not need some other...

    [Success] ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Dual E5-2620 v2 GTX660Ti 32Gb

    Hi All If anyone is still reading: Any idea whether or not the Asus Z9PE-D16-10G is hackintoshable? Is High Sierra running stable on Z9PE-D8? I would assume if the D8 is running High Sierra, so would the D16? Thanks for any input Lotlorien
