    New Apple Silicon Macs: MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini

    I find all this Hackintosh doom-and-gloom proclamations to be pretty silly. With a transition to ARM timeline of about 2 years, Apple will continue to sell Intel computers well into 2021 and possibly longer. Let's assume a (short) OS transition of only 4 years -- that means that OSX 11.3 (Seal...

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    But in the meantime they still need to continue supporting Intel as well, so developers have to walk a fine line between using ARM-specific extensions vs. keeping the code fairly platform neutral...at least for the next few years. On the other hand, if a developer (like Adobe) is currently...

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    I have to wonder if Apple moving to ARM CPUs might actually facilitate more apps running without issues on Ryzentosh. Reason why I say this is because ARM forces developers not to rely on Intel specific features.

    Apple Announces 'One More Thing' Event for November 10th

    Rumors point to Mac Books only. I'm mostly interested in seeing what the actual performance points are with ARM CPU's and possibly GPU's. Unfortunately these new machines probably won't actually be available and shipping until well into December, so it'll be a while before we can get some...

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    Are there any updates regarding being able to use Zen3 CPU's on Ryzentosh?

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    I certainly hope so, considering the upcoming NAVI 2 gpu cards coming soon from AMD, I really hope that we will get drivers for those and that it won’t be a repeat of the Nvidia clusterf—-

    The Intel Core i9-10920X is a 12-core CPU.

    What is the impact on Apple if NVIDIA were to buy ARM?

    The issue that I have is that lately they seem to do so at the detriment of their user base. It feels more of a result of ego than an actual business strategy. First they can't seem to be able to work out a way to retain Nvidia/CUDA drivers on OSX which was a terrible blow to CG artists and...

    What is the impact on Apple if NVIDIA were to buy ARM?

    Yup...done deal. Honestly I would laugh my ass off if they make Apple's life miserable from now on. Apple should have embraced AMD CPU's instead of being the elitist assholes that they have been lately! https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-announces-arm-acquisition-for-dollar40-billion

    Asus X299 - Support

    I'm looking to build an 18-core machine soon and was looking for some advice. Was thinking of going with either a Intel 10980XE or a 9980XE since the prices have basically been slashed in half recently. I will use my current case/PSU/RAM/cooler etc. However I was wondering if anyone has...

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    As I said, I don't want to hijack the thread, but I'll give you a practical in-app reason that for the time being contributes to me staying in OSX despite most of the very same apps being available in Windows -- spacebar preview! When I'm importing files, whether it's videos, audio, stills or...

    What is the impact on Apple if NVIDIA were to buy ARM?

    Looks like the deal will really happen: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-close-to-buying-arm-for-dollar40-billion-report

    Geez....how hi-res is your music? What are we talking about 192khz 32bit float Dolby ATMOS multichannel wav files? Even for that USB 3 would have been plenty fast.

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    This is interesting, and certainly a point of contention when I get into some heated exchange on a Mac vs. PC thread. For my own personal creative needs, esthetics matter and they matter enough that I've been making my professional life a lot more complicated by running a Hackintosh and doing...

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    WTH did I say? Look, I'm glad that your Ryzentosh is working fine for you. But some Adobe apps simply don't work on Ryzentoshes -- Waves plugins don't work, Cubase doesn't work, Reaper doesn't work, and even Logic Pro exhibits some weird behavior. Perhaps you don't use any of the affected...

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    I dunno....until Acidanthera and Dortania are fully backing up these config tools, I prefer to do my own manual configuration of OC as the instructions seem to clearly suggest. Anyone know what's new and improved in OC 6.1?

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    Depends and depends is the answer. Depends on what your needs are, and depends on what your budget it. The main issue for me is that not all apps work, particularly those very apps that would justify running a high-core CPU. If a Ryzentosh means not being able to access some of the apps I rely...

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    I'm sorry but this is a load of BS. I keep hearing this sort of self-righteous nonsense from 'veteran' users in various forums and it always rings of elitism. The truth is that humanity has been relying on tools to simplify otherwise complex processes through its entire history. I just went...

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    This was an unavoidable development, necessary for TonyMacx86 to remain relevant in the Hackintosh community....however I find the AMD Hackintosh to be a weirdly overhyped phenomenon in the larger community. An AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is about $750 while an Intel Core i9-9960X retails for about $900...

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

    With today's announcement of Intel-based iMac and iMac Pro, I think the Hackintosh community is pretty safe for at least the next 5-6 years (but likely even longer)! https://www.macrumors.com/2020/08/04/new-27-inch-imac-10th-gen-intel/
