It's been a good run indeed! But Apple's M-series obviated the need for a hackintosh overnite for most people (except those that need a ton of cores or use windows/linux on one machine) which probably means Apple was listening to the community. M-series is too powerful and too power efficient to ignore.So I'm guessing im gonna need big surr if I want to update from my 5700xt liquid devil. It's a shame, big Sur is very problematic still for audio production.
I also think my most recent build will be my last hackintosh.. M1 plus lack of GPU options won't make it viable.. 10 + years of hackintoshs isn't a bad run
I don't know if Intel will be able to catch up with Apple or even AMD, but until they do, your money is better spent elsewhere, unfortunately. But I sincerely hope Intel comes back and that x86 doesn't die. I would be very sad indeed.
But I'm looking forward to picking up a new M-series macbook pro 14 or 16 inch depending on the price. Rumors have it that Apple will release a new design probably in 3Q 2021.
