#2388663 [RYZEN] macOS 10.12.x (Sierra) Kernel Research&Development Thread

Posted by theconnactic on 21 March 2017 - 03:15 PM

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!

#2380919 [RYZEN] macOS 10.12.x (Sierra) Kernel Research&Development Thread

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.

Congrats for getting a kernel able to boot the installer so soon. You guys rock. Soon you'll be able to boot the actual OS, I'm certain. O.T.: don't you find a little surprising, even shocking, that it can run on ARM? I do. That can signal an iPad Pro running macOS in the future, but also Apple experimenting with ARM processors for Macs, probably the ultraportable MacBook.

Hats off to Shanee and Spakk, who don't give up despite the enourmous difficulties and frustrations of kernel patching.

#2233844 How to Play Trailers in iTunes

Is this a way to circumvent the HDCP bug that is plaguing OSX86 since Ivy Bridge? Or just a solution for your Sandy Bridge hardware (which is not affected by the bug anyway)?

#2214814 [AMD] OS X El Capitan (10.11) FX Kernel Task Force

Posted by theconnactic on 11 February 2016 - 06:39 AM

In the old days, these graphics issues were related to caches, if I remember correctly, not a given instruction set. I remember this, Sinetek was the one who found it out. Perhaps it's the same thing now... Fact is, the XNU kernel is getting each day more missing stuff in comparison to the real binary Apple distributes. Wonder how long until Apple stops releasing it as open source altogether.

Also my ram is only showing four Gb it should be eight I have only one stick by the way... really weird, and the last thing is audio, which is a common thing, i appreciate any help guys, thanks in advance. Jancarlos, for general post install help, I suggest you open a new topic for the subject in this forum. So many advances were made in this topic, let's keep it clean! All the best!

#2180653 OS X 10.11.1 is out!

Posted by theconnactic on 22 October 2015 - 05:20 AM

Uneventful update. The clover patch for AppleHDA still works after updating. Honestly, I don't use either Office, Voice Over or emoji, so I noticed no changes at all.

Posted by theconnactic on 07 October 2015 - 03:57 PM

Yup, typo. But you got it. :P P.S.: Kaby Lake is not exactly a tick: if it doesn't bring anything other than native USB3.1, I'm waiting for 2017's Cannonlake.

#2172452 (GUIDE) 10.11 full speed USB (series 8/9) keeping vanilla SLE

Posted by theconnactic on 03 October 2015 - 05:38 AM

Ok..so i can use only injector without modified DSDT..because i dont understand never ...about DST  :lol: PS: Now you see all USB3 HISpeed in system ? I don't know if you can: I guess it depends on the board. Mine - Z97 Gryphon - seems to be one of the lucky ones. You should try and see. P.S.: Yes! And now my portable Samsung M3 has RW speeds over 80mb/s again (tested with BlackMagic). P.P.S.: Mind you, I use a vanilla ("virgin") DSDT: no patches since I moved from a Gigabyte H77 to my current Asus Z97. P.P.P.S.:  Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 2.38.08 AM.png 166.23KB 43 downloads :D
