Apple’s new Mac Pro will max out at 28 CPU cores, but that’s projected to cost as much as a midrange sports car. Nothing a bare metal Hackintosh can’t fix…

    I fully support Hackintosh. Apple needs to not be unreasonably tight with their hardware.

    Hm, I guess the follow-up video to this should be right around the corner?

    • notthere83

      Ah, here it is: They should really link follow-ups in the description...

  • i_C_Wiener__

    anthony please cut that hair, it looks horrible. it looks so bad you could be a villain in resident evil 7

  • ManualFocusShow

    Anthony’s hanging on to his hair like Jack hung on to that door Rose was on. I’ll never let go jack. Jacks gone. And so is your hair. Not tryna be a duck or a dick. And I know that analogy made no sense.

    Should've used the Gigabyte C621 WD12. Though the x299 WU8 is another unique board. It has dual 8747 PLX chips for 4-way 16X PCI-e 3.0 GPU support or 7-way 1 16X 6 8X GPU support.

  • hill160881

    Hackintosh are bullshit and so is the community. If you are tech savvy you still won’t get it going. If you are extremely tech savvy you may get it working. If you can’t get it going good luck getting help from the forum community. I verified my hardware was comparable and still could not get it going. No help from the community.

    I've done this since 10.4 and was probably the first to try and use TianoCore (booting from a floppy) to boot it the EFI way on a non-EFI AMD. Back then it was already fairly painless to setup using a VM with direct disk access to do the install and install the Chameleon bootloader. Later when Sandy Bridge was released it became dead easy using either Chameleon or Clover, even getting GPU's working. Now with the EFIvolution of Clover, it is equally simple. You just need to generate a correct smbios for your hardware to get iMessage etc working. The smbios info even has control over how the iGPU is used on supported CPU's like my 2600k (maximum VRAM differs between iMac and MacMini) and what power management features get activated at boot. So don't just stick with the VM base that, just seems to work... fix it properly.

      Well, if you want to do truly professional editing, Linux is out, Kdenlive is not at all the same as Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere... For pretty much anything else, I'd choose Linux as well 😀
