Im kinda confused with the recent leaks pointing at a i7-1068NG7 ice Lake processor for the new MacBook. I think I’m gonna jump ship and order a Lenovo s940 and stick with it. Were there any recent consumer processors that could not be spoofed in the end?

I've ordered an MSI Prestige 15 and a DW1820A to use with it (you can change the WiFi/BT module on the Prestige, it is not soldered). This laptop has an i7-10710u, a processor that is not supported yet. As soon as 10.15.4 get a public release, I'll be experimenting with it. For what I know so far, Whatevergreen got an update to solve some problems with Ice Lake processors. Same for some other kexts, so I think it will work. If I can't make it work, I'm sure I'll be able to soon.

I'm in the same exact boat with my prestige 15, I'm going to use a
Broadcom BCM94360NG for wifi though. Much better for wifi. No kexts at all required and everything works out of the box that way,

I know about the better compatibility of that card. I also have two DW1560. But I decided to try with DW1820A because it has better BT, and faster WiFi. Supposedly, it only needs a couple of kexts and a patch. Nothing too crazy.

You can test by yourself. Just compile latest version of opencore from github and enable ProtectUefiServices and DevirtualiseMmio!
I have tried on 10.15.3 install. And got no more allocation error. Just got KP while loading kernel. And thats all test that i have done.

Hello I have compiled the version of Open Core, however I do not know Open Core very well so I cannot configure it for Ice Lake.
Could you give me a guide to understand open core and be able to configure it for Ice Lake?
(PS: My laptop is an MSI prestige 15)

I'm gonna give it a shot this Tuesday/Wednesday when hopefully the final version of 15.4 is released, they've had 5 betas now.
