The new Asus ProArt X570-CREATOR will retail for US$429.99 starting August 30 September 6. This is extremely tempting...that's all I'll say for now. ;)

  • Two Thunderbolt 4 ports and one DP-In port
  • WiFi 6E / BT 5.2
  • 10GbE and 2.5GbE
  • 3 M.2 slots (PCIe 4.0 on all)
  • HDMI port with 4K60 support
  • One internal USB-C Type E header
  • Three internal USB 2.0 headers
  • Does not have SPDIF/Optical output
The over-the-top Crosshair VIII Extreme (US$799) offers these extras:
  • Two Thunderbolt 4 ports and two DP-In ports
  • WiFi 6E / BT 5.2
  • 10GbE and 2.5GbE
  • 5 M.2 slots (PCIe 4.0 on all) -- 3 slots on motherboard, 2 slots on DIMM.2 riser card
  • HDMI port with 4K60 support
  • Two internal USB-C Type E headers (never seen that before; one of the ports offers PD3.0 60W charging)
  • Two internal USB 2.0 headers
  • Has SPDIF/Optical output
  • DIMM.2 slot
A recent leak of AMD's next generation AM5 chipset reveals:
  • PCIe 4.0 instead of PCIe 5.0.
    • This is perfectly okay in my opinion. We barely have PCIe 4.0 right now.
  • DDR5 memory.
    • Biggest generational leap since original DDR memory.
    • 8400 MT/s to 10,000 MT/s possible.
    • Much larger per-DIMM capacity:
      • As much as 128GB per module for consumers
      • As much as 2TB per module for servers
    • Boot Sequence Video on YouTube
AM5 will support at least the next 2 generations of AMD processors. No idea if they can be patched to run macOS.

Update: Ryzen 6000 processors will include RDNA2-based iGPU. Some SKUs may be offered with iGPU disabled.

Now that Parallels 17 is out, could anyone try it and check whether they reintroduced support to AMD Ryzens? I highly doubt it, but can we double check it?

I was also hoping for a better outcome, but alas...

That's a terrible new. I was hoping to replace my 10900k with a 59xx but I have to forget it...
Who knows what happens when Fusion 13 is released? But the chances are close to zero I guess.
Thanks a lot for testing it.

Have any of you experienced issues with enable TPM and Secure Boot and OS X? I had weird issues, making me drop trying out Win11 on a separate drive. My bluetooth was crossed out in the menu bar, and gone from the System preferences.

After you have been in Windows, it is often necessary to do a full COLD boot to get Bluetooth and/or Wifi working properly in macOS.

Windows installs its own firmware to the BT/Wifi module and the only way to clear it so macOS can install its own version is to cold boot.

Simply unplug the power cable for > 10 seconds. Plug back in and boot straight into macOS and it should be back to normal. It has absolutely nothing to do with TPM or Secure Boot so you can enable them to install Win11 and leave them enabled - just cold boot after going into Windows.

Luckily, I was able to snag the ROG CROSSHAIR VIII EXTREME on pre-order from NewEgg yesterday during the livestream. I haven't decided if it'll be a Hackintosh yet, but I plan to fully kit it out. I've already got a 5950X and 128GB of 3600MHz memory in route. Now I just need to config & order an EK water setup and then wait for the Corsair 7000D to come back into stock.
Have you received the Asus X570 Crosshair VIII Extreme? If so, what are your impressions so far?

The motherboard arrived on Tuesday while I was traveling. My first impression it that it's a BEAST. No joke; it easily ways 5+ lbs. Unfortunately, my new Corsair 7000D Airflow also arrived Tuesday but was severely damaged. I returned it to Best Buy, and promptly ordered a white 5000D Airflow direct from Corsair along with a custom water-cooling loop and 64GB of 3600MHz memory. I've got the 5950X in already, but have to wait for everything else to arrive later this week before I can start building my new rig. I'll let you know once I've got it up and running.

Hello

It seems that with OpenCore 7.2, a Radeon RX 580 and a version of Mojave, installation of Mojave (10.4.4 in the year of 2019) is possible as iMacPro1,1. There is at the end a stop for to install after 8 minutes.
(argument or support for mojave in opencore ?)
This is realized on my config as: B500 vision D, processor AMD 5950X, a RX580 and NVMe SP 1T.

I will give more information later.

** OpenCore 0.7.3 EFI for B550 Vision D / ASRock X570 Taichi **
Supports Catalina, Big Sur, and Monterey
Please do not quote this post in its entirely. Use a link instead.

For BIOS F10


Update 9 Sep 2021:
HackinDROM 2.0.0 Beta (click here) can be used to update to OpenCore 0.7.3

Supports both BIOS F10 and F13 on B550 Vision D
Also supports ASRock X570 Taichi



To make changes to OpenCore config.plist, please ensure that OpenCore Configurator is set to 0.7.3 Release Version (do not use OpenCore Configurator 2.48.1.0 or earlier)​


This update includes:

1. OpenCore 0.7.3
2. VirtualSMC 1.2.7
3. AppleALC 1.6.4
4. Lilu 1.5.6
5. WhateverGreen 1.5.3
6. RestrictEvents 1.0.4

Changes to config.plist:
  • UEFI --> Drivers format has changed from simple array to dict. Please do not use OpenCore Configurator 2.48.1.0 or earlier as it will corrupt the config.plist.
  • PlatformInfo --> UpdateSMBIOSMode has been changed from Create to Custom. Additionally, kernel quirk CustomSMBIOSGuid has been enabled. This allows Windows to use the computer name you specified. Thanks to @Ploddles for the tip.
Reminder:
  • Radeon VII users must disable boot argument agdpmod=pikera. Vega users may need to do the same.


WARNING: Until OpenCore Configurator 2.48.2.0 is released, we can only use a Plist Editor or text editor such as BBEdit and follow the procedure below:
  1. Download the ZIP file
  2. It will downloaded into a folder called EFI-073-B550-VISION-D
    • Rename this top level folder to EFI
  3. Choose appropriate config.plist as follows:
    • This EFI folder contains the latest AMD-OSX kernel patches. These patches support Catalina, Big Sur, and Monterey. However, the patches must be tailored to the number of CPU cores (not total thread count). This means that 6-core, 8-core, 12-core, and 16-core CPUs need to use their own slightly modified kernel patches.
      Screen Shot 2021-08-02 at 4.31.50 PM.png
    • Simply choose the config file corresponding to your AMD Ryzen processor and rename that file to config.plist.
  4. Edit the new config.plist in a Plist Editor or text editor such as BBEdit
  5. Open your current config.plist in the same editor
  6. Copy the selected section from current config.plist and paste it into new config.plist
    Screen Shot 2021-09-07 at 7.44.11 AM.png
  7. Save the new config.plist
  8. WARNING: If you have customized your config.plist, it may be best to wait until OpenCore Configurator 2.48.2.0 or newer is released that supports 0.7.3 Release Version (not 0.7.3 Development Version)
  9. Copy the new EFI folder to the EFI partition of a USB flash drive
  10. Boot the system from the USB flash drive by pressing F12 at Gigabyte Splash Screen and selecting the USB flash disk
  11. When OpenCore Picker GUI appears, check that bottom right corner says REL-073-...
  12. If macOS boots and runs properly, then copy the new EFI folder to the EFI partition of the internal macOS SSD


For manual update purposes, the ZIP file is attached below.

Updates:
  • 7 Sep 2021: First version
  • 8 Sep 2021: Replaced the EFI folder because OpenCore.efi was mistakenly not updated to 0.7.3. If you downloaded the previous EFI ZIP, simply replace OpenCore.efi in the EFI/OC folder.
