I guess M1x with pro iGPU and 32GB(yes, I really need that much) is still going to be expensive.
Will be impossible based on the M1 systems that have been released.I also hate the fact that it is increasingly difficult to replace or upgrade an Apple product.
RAM upgrade for my Hack? $150 for 32 GB. 2 TB SSD? Another 150. Upgrading is 10 minutes work, I don't even need a screwdriver for most jobs.
You may not really need that much I mean have you tested it and know that 16gb on a M1 is not enough?
TB3 will work, or USB3.x. But this means buying an extra case, or using a swappable external case, maybe expensive cables/adapters. Plus, I love the speed of NVME. NVME in external case, costly.Will be impossible based on the M1 systems that have been released.
Yea Apple likes to kill people on the memory cost. However from a Hard drive stand point TB3 devices take 30 sec to plug in and in most cases works as well as if it was plugged directly in SATA.
The Gaming 7 has a THB_C header that means you can simply purchase a GC Alpine or Titan Ridge add in card. From there you can decide if you need to custom flash the TB card to get TB bus or if you can live with SSDT only implementations. If you can get your hands on the older GC alpine ridge you can get TB bus with only an SSDT. Then you can simply drop a 9900k CPU (8cores/16 threads) into your system. Yes the 10900k has (10 cores/20 threads) but you have to ask yourself if those two extra threads are worth the possible issues or stick with a system that you know is stable and just upgrade it a little.I have been thinking about upgrading my music production build from z390/8700k to z490/10900k for TB3, a decent performance boost and future-proofing, but this thread makes me wonder if it’s worth the effort. Maybe just keep working on the 8700K and go Apple silicon afterwards.
