Thanks!! Will try tonight
Yes, I've been using 10GBase-T for quite a while now. I'm currently using a Syba AQC107 based card and it works OOB with built-in macOS drivers.Hey Pastry did you ever get 10gig networking on your hackintosh?
[you probably dont remember me but your high sierra 8700k guide was the basis for choosing all the parts for my build and its been working really well for 1.5 years now so thanks again]
My hackintosh is my main workstation for running ableton & I use an upgraded mac pro 1,1 as a local fileshare server.
since the mac pro has 2x gigabit, I figured I should upgrade the hackintosh to 10gig first but also wanted to ask:
- do you have a 10gig pcie card that you would recommend for a 1,1 mac pro as well?
- if both ends + the router/switch are upgraded to 10gig, would that be fast enough to edit footage or load massive 6GB sampler patches over the network? [any youtube videos to suggest in that department?]
I never tried an AQN-107... I've only ever tried AQC-107.I'm running two of these on Z87/H87 builds but can't get more than about 2Gb through them. Has anybody done iperf tests to confirm througput on some of these 10Gb nics?
These DO NOT show up on 13.0 as expected, and using the combo updater to get to 13.3, it did find the cards but no firmware was flashed. They show up as aqn-107.
edit: Sorry for the dumb question, but is the SMB of the iMac Pro required to get these to flash during 13.3 or if it's supported OOB, is there anything I should be tweaking?

I can't speak for the AQN-107, but AQC-107 cards that are working OOB are better off without the macOS 10.13.3 flash. AQC-107 cards that have been flashed by 10.13.3 have difficulty working in Windows because the Windows drivers don't recognize the card.Hrm, thanks for the reply. I am running Mojave on both builds right now; I only installed 10.13 as a test to try and check if these would get flashed with a different firmware when upgrading to 10.13.3.
>You may want to mess with jumbo frames and/or try AFP instead of SMB...
I have it set for 9k on the switch and 9k on both machines.
If you're referring to transfer protocols, I'm actually only doing iperf3 tests to check their throughput. No re-world tests with file transfers yet. I know the NICs work, I tested this out in Ubuntu and was able to get a consistent 11Gb speed.
