No, Maldon! ;)

Currently, Ryzen beats the Intel quad core i7s in everything but games. It evenly matches with Intel's best hexa and higher core CPUs that cost twice as much. MacOS is not a gaming platform, is a content creation platform, so gaming performance has little if any importance. Can someone reasonably think Apple will lose the oportunity to keep or even increase performance while cutting costs at the same time?

A MacPro refresh is long overdue. AMD new multicore CPUs are finaly competitive. Apple already uses AMD GPUs in the Mac, so there's already a business relationship going on. Let's wait and see what the future brings!

Only time will tell. You can try with the Vanilla kernel but I'm doubtful. I suggest trying my latest kernel from here, http://amd-osx.com/f...ee_10.12_RC.zip


No, Shane, the current vanilla kernel cannot boot on Ryzen. I meant future point releases, or even 10.13, being able to boot vanilla because there are rumors Apple could ship MacPros and even MacBookPros with AMD silicon. ;)

I have a gut feeling that soon Ryzen users won't need modified kernels to boot macOS.

They are being faster than in old times, when they could take months to release current source. What changed?
