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'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 😀

    I wonder if Linus and the LTT staff have to work hard to come up with project ideas that utilise Anthony's knowledge and experience. Anthony may be an occasionally under used resource. It's like, "What do we do with the LHC now that we have it?". "Uhh, ahh, gee, shit, uhhmm, OH I KNOW. Let's see if it can emulate particles from other universes".

    Worked straight away. Lucky bastards. I got Mac OS (El Capitan I think?) to run on my i7 laptop but the 3d acceleration didn't work because of the optimus controller. Found that out the hard way. It may be a surmountable problem but after doing some reading it seemed quite beyond my level of expertise.

    If you never fixed the imessage and stuff, its because you gotta spoof the serial and hardware id, as well as combine your mac address. Has to be a wifi connection

    Well... "much better to buy a mac". At least, until a few months in, when you have to replace some component and you are told that it's out of warranty and you have to buy a whole new mac.

    Hey Linus, care sharing any updates on this?? I mean you do have an Anthony, even if Apple has good(correction: good, as in, genius when it comes to fooling and robbing their customers) engineers and some of the worst hardware out there.

  • trumanhw

    *NO ONE is going to use 1.5TB of RAM. Apple would LITERALLY charge $100,000 for it!* *WHY NOT TEST A DUAL CPU MoBo ??*

    • Pcbms

      trumanhw Bullshit. They won’t and a lot of companies will buy the 1,5TB version. Dual Cpu is not needed because,the gpus are doing the most work.

    Also, Apple is not using the W3175X, they’re using the W3275. Can you run benches on both so we know the full scope

    damm those are serious technical skills that your guy, anthony has. where is the tutorial for DSDT-ing that gigabyte thing

  • Dukenukem

    iMessage and Facetime sign their messages with hardwareID of the mac they are running on (or iPhone/pad). Its just cheap trick from Apple to make Hackintosh even harder to build (and T2 chip will make almost sure of that). You will need to somehow inject the OS with the fake HardwareID of a real mac (preferably long dead, but compatible mac). Good luck with that. if you manage to pull that of please make tutorial how to do it( or post a link)

  • RetroRenegades

    I know this is sorta unrelated at this price point.. well maybe not.. but as someone who was just searching for a laptop for college (settled with an HP for about 300 bucks), the prices of the cheapest Macbooks are so ridiculously overpriced it's hard to fathom. I guess I'll find a direct comparison then update this assertion later :P
