Since who created the T2 chips are humans, other humans will crack it and bypass it, this is the totally complete truth, Hackintosh history tells it, I know it will be a pain in the as* and 5 years is enough time for someone to rise with a hack tool for it, or am I dreaming o_O

The problem is that it's a pretty powerful SOC. Just look at how it helps video decoding. I don't see how this can be emulated in software.

I don't know. For software license protection, the hardware dongles are pretty effective.

Let's hope Linux will improve. Maybe Windows 11 will be great. Or maybe Apple doesn't care and leaves us hackintoshers be.

I wonder how much the new Mac Pro will cost at its maximum configuration
More than any of us can afford unless we were to win the million dollar lottery.

I got where everything goes now, seems we are going to be mentioned in the Tech history after all :cry:

I would expect a T2 in the new Mac Pro.

As long as there's a current Mac model that still doesn't have a T2 is all that I can ask for.
Confirmed... T2 in new Mac Pro

I think Mac mini with iGpu is affordable after 2 years from now.
