Sorry, I just posted this before reading your post!How much did you pay for that thing?
I though Intel had guts to charge around US$550 (the equivalent price at my locality) for it. I consider that price ridiculous and will never consider one (regardless of any single core IPC improvement) especially when the 10th generation i7 is only a little over half as much and the i7 11700K is only US$400.
If I were you, even if I wanted to get a 11th generation CPU, I would have gotten the 11700K or the i7 11700KF instead of this ridiculously expensive thing.
Anyway, congratulations. I suppose this means that you are able to run High Sierra with this thing?
Thanks! Yeah I know what you mean. Well I hadn't owned an i9 before so I thought what the heck I get a top spec one this time round. But I had the Z490 board and wanted the extra oomph from the PCIe 4.0 as well and also thought why not. I paid around $556 equivalent in my area (which I have to say, is pretty damn good!). I was half expecting the price to jack up even further with the current chip shortage.
Yes I just checked the High Sierra build works (and even shows the 3.5Ghz speed of the chip), but my special Catalina Clover build didn't work.
