Hackintosh for 3D professional?

Recommended Posts

Ciao a tutti, premetto che sono un grafico che ha usato Apple per anni e non so un beneamato nulla di configurazioni e programmazione ma vorrei capire meglio i vantaggi possibili di costruire un Hackintosh e un consiglio su hardware che ho addocchiato per il mio caso, perché mi sto ingolosendo parecchio sul fatto di poter risparmiare ed avere una macchina molto più potente di un Mac Pro.


Intanto poche domande su Hackintosh:

il sistema Hackintosh, è stabile per usarlo professionalmente? Userei Blender, Maya, Adobe Suite e altri programmi minori, nonché quelli Apple.

Tutto il software che ho installato sul mio Mac posso tranquillamente installarlo su Hackintosh?

La compatibilità con le Wacom tablets è nativa?

Gli aggiornamenti software (Mountain Lion e Apps) nonché aggiornamenti drivers periferiche (Wacom per esempio o scheda video) potrebbero compromettere il sistema o sono sicuri?


Questa è la configurazione per la quale vorrei spassionati consigli:


Case: Mini-ITX BitFenix Prodigy

Scheda video: Geforce serie GTX, consigliatemi voi (anche per il gaming)

Motherboard: consigliatemi

Processore/i: consigliatemi purché siano potenti per un sistema PRO

Ram: 16 Gb minimo

Hard Disk: 2 Tb

Scheda di rete/wireless: consigliatemi


Vorrei stare sotto i 1000 euro se possibile.

    • Hi @fabiosun and thank's for your patience with an old and stubborn man.   I am 100 % sure that my MSR 0xE2 register is unlocked thank's to you.   My system is 100% stable and I haven't had one kp with this configuration in the last two weeks.    I'm now running without TSCAdjustReseat.kext and I can't se any issues in performance with or without that kext. What I however can se is that the amount of total energy consumed during the test-cycle are 10 times higher without the kext (three times Cinebench CPU and two times Luxmark open CL) as you can see in the output from my AppleIntelInfo.kext attached in my earlier post.   I have tested running Cinebench five times in a row with or without TSC kext and have exactly the same performance (see attached files). Temperature is not a problem at all.   Everything seems to be fine so I guess I have to wait and see if upcoming 10.13.5 maybe recognise Intel Xeon w series processor as native.     
    • Tried with HPET enabled and disabled so I don't think it's that. I'd tried with bus ratio before to no effect but wouldn't hurt to try again. The clock runs at the correct speed.
    • could be an HPET / TSC Sync issue. does your system clock slow down or run faster then it should. also check cpu and buss ratios.
    • @MacPeet El capitan. It has t7700 cpu, so HS is not option for now. Have to find t9500 cpu. I bought this laptop for 30euros 3 weeks ago, with everything working, battery like new, it looks like from store, 4gb ram, 1920x1200 17" screen, replaced wifi and put SSD. Also sleep and hibernation working, native brightness, volume touch buttons work. Windows was not option because of broken  touchpad drivers, and linux because of slow graphics. Here everything works like it should.   AD1981 is also on thinkpad T60. I searched everywhere, but no solution. Here is some half working legacy driver, don't know how binary was patched(if it was): https://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=85344&start=28#p564260
    • the slowness is most likely IM's host provider. we used to use ONE.com but they sucked and it was super slow so we switched and things definitely got better on the slowness front
