    Re: Mac powered by AMD Ryzen 9 5950X spotted running at 6.0GHz

    I've ran Hackintosh systems in the past.... and for me, just wasn't worth it over Win 7 (at the time)
    Much easier to make a decent Linux box and use that instead as I have zero software that needs osx

    Yes it's all about the 6ghz headline speed, but that's achievable on Intel too. Thing is this is the first time AMD seem to be able to overclock to the same sort of degree as Intel

    Hope new amd achievements will press intel toow the prices a bit, they were never as costly as now.

    Nope it has allowed AMD to increase their prices

    Hybrid part with one x86-64 CCX and one ARM? It'll let Apple shift to ARM while having 100% support for x64 apps.

    God no - why? It's a Hackintosh pure and simple. Scripts/programs exist to make it easy these days, if you so want to do it

    Definitely it's a Hackintosh.

    Haha maybe I should post up my Ryzentosh score for poops & giggles. Although it's nowhere near 6.0Ghz, just stock

    Gotta say my AMD Hackintosh is super smooth and as others have said it's very easy to do these days.

    Dear jimborae, could you post a link of your Hackintosh smooth setup?

    Re: Mac powered by AMD Ryzen 9 5950X spotted running at 6.0GHz

    Hackintosh aside, there'd be nothing stopping Apple releasing a 'final x86 harrah' Mac Pro with a threadripper (or epyc if they wanted to offer dual cpu options) cpu in it, that would be pretty popular I'd imagine with the sort of customer the Mac Pro is aimed at.

    It will probably be a while before they can get a Mac Pro with enough performance on ARM after all. The things like MacBook Air, Macbook, Mac Mini and iMac will probably be perfectly acceptable on ARM, especially with the extra battery life it'd give. (it should also be noted that Microsoft are trying to do similar with the Surface line slowly, with getting Windows working on ARM to compete on battery time with the coming Apple products, but the x86 compatibility is lacking compared to Apple it seems).

    Will Apple do it? probably not, but its be nice to speculate sometimes.

    Think its a good 5 years off before we see decent mainstream performance on ARM stuff, at the earliest..

    Thing is with MS and Apple doing it, it might get a bit more traction..

    If it were MS on their own, I wouldn't care, they lost me for that with the original SurfaceRT which they ditched after the second one, I'm kinda past MS doing things these days, the RT, Surface 2, Watch etc..

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Mac Pro just disappears....
