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.
These are curious claims. I use Cubase and Waves daily on my Asrock x570/Ryzen 3700X/OSX 10.15.4 Ryzentosh and they have worked flawlessly. My daughter prefers to work in Logic and has experienced no issues. DaVinci Resolve also works well. Can't speak to Reaper as I use those other serious tools..... ;~)

Speaking as someone who built a Ryzen 3900 XT system just last month, on OpenCore for the first time, I can heartily recommend OpenCore.

However I am now back on an Intel i7 10700 build instead. The Ryzen was super-fast and all that, but the lack of virtualisation apps (except Virtualbox), some unexplained weirdness with XCode no Android EMulator (see virtualisation) and the failure of most Adobe Creative Studio apps to even launch ended it for me.

That said - the AMD announcement is great news from www.tonymacx86.com

Adobe Apps work for me on a 3rd gen Threadripper. A simple patch script solves most problems. The new Beta apps from Adobe also now work without patching etc - probably Adobe removing the Intel specific codebase in preparation for ARM.

The Benchmark DAC3 is stunning... I
My other DAC is the Sony TA-ZH1ES that I use for only for headphones with a Sony NW-WM1A as the source.

Some year I would like to replace the DAC2-HGC with the PS Audio DirectStream DAC for my main system.

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

Yes, but I never seen a Mac with this CPU... and it's HEDT CPU (Skylake-X) not a mainstream CPU.
And Apple puts Xeon on professional computer.

Most of the time I use hackintosh for iOS development with XCode. Any one tried XCode? any XCode issues with AMD Ryzen?
