Can somebody Tell me why the New Mac Books with haswell cpu run with the current os x 10.8.4?:shifty:

Apple is shipping the new hardware with a new build version of the operating system that is not on general release and it is newer than the 10.8.4 version that anyone running Ivy Bridge or older has been able to get via the apple site download option.

We can only hope that there will be an update that will allow Haswell builds soon - its in Apples hands.

GA-Z87X-UD7 TH will be for sale at Amazon and Newegg early August - seemed like an appropriate place to mention this (again). 08_GIGABYTE_GA-Z87X-UD7_TH 2.jpgGA-Z87X-UD7 TH.jpg08_GIGABYTE_GA-Z87X-UD7_TH 3.jpg06_GIGABYTE_GA-Z87X-UD7_TH.jpg08_GIGABYTE_GA-Z87X-UD7_TH 4.jpg07_GIGABYTE_GA-Z87X-UD7_TH.jpg08_GIGABYTE_GA-Z87X-UD7_TH.jpg

I've created a topic 2 days ago talking about the Intel BOXDH87RL Motherboard, it does have an ALC892 for audio and the Intel i217V for ethernet, but the chipset is the H87, but looking through this early guide, it seems that this board should work very well

What else would they run with? Mavericks is still a WIP and only released as a developer preview.Also, they run a fork of 10.8.4 that come with Haswell support.
