So does it run ios apps in intel? Or only apple silicon?

I have this doubt too...

better question, how difficult is it to write a arm -> intel converter that still is able to use advanced gpu cards like the 5700 xt?

Qemu currently does a good job emulating ARM on x86 but performance will not be great. I have played with this, usually the best performance is when you use KVM and run the same arch on both the guest and host.

But that's only the CPU.

 

Ideally we could use a powerful ARM board(something that will be available in the future maybe, maybe Rockchip based) that can use Qemu for ARM64 to efficiently emulate a Macbook. Linux 5.7 has just dropped KVM support for ARM32 but has kept it for ARM64(AArch64) so there is hope there.

 

I was actually thinking maybe Chromebooks might be a usable platform but who knows what GPUs ARM Macs will have. Some Chromebooks are ARM64(AArch64) and then there is the Pinebook 64.

I think the biggest problem is that ARM chips that are available for us regular folks are packaged in custom SoCs with no option on what peripherals to include, but who knows, someone might build a custom SoC just for this!

 

I guess we will just have to wait and see...

"Big Sur" ... Really? ... I mean,... really?

They should've sticked with OSX version numbering in the first place,...lmfao

It's probably an internal joke at headquarters that whoever comes up with the most ridiculous name for the next iteration get's chosen for the actual release candidate...

 

Although I'm long gone from the hackintosh community, I think it's great that ARM is dominating mobile now and coming slowly to desktop too. People are already building rigs with it. It's proven to be a great chipset from what one can read. This will also possibly prevent AMD from becoming the new Intel and just milk the whole market 'cause there's no competition.

 

But seriously,...the names,...

Could've called it "Your Mom"...

Big Sur is a well known place in California.

Hahaha thanks for the clarification Ellybz, I'm sure it's well known to every Californian and a lot of Americans, but the whole world is using MacOS/iOS by now, and it just sounds horrible from an advertising point of view, IMHO.

(Btw, I'm living in Mexico, I was suspecting that it would have something to do with California, but really, they're trying too hard to be cool...)

Again, thanks for the pointer ;)

While Apple has asked developers not to do performance or benchmark tests on their developer kit devices, it was just a matter of hours until those showed up on the Internet.


According to Geekbench 5 scores, it is averaging 835 on Single core, 2800 on multi core. Much lower than other similarly devices, including the recent iPad Pro, but not that bad against the entry MacBook Air.

 

More on the below link.

      Version Info
      This build is compatible up to Big Sur Beta
      Now Compatible with macOS 11 Please leave feedback with issues or w/o Comitted to Updating up to OS 11 MULTITOUCH TOUCHSCREEN SUPPORT Latest Release Notes
      Fixed Bluetooth and Wifi Stability Issues Improved Preformance and Power Managements Can Provide Files for Display Overrides Additional Patches for 3K Display updated for 15.4 rev 1 if using unsupported wifi card disable it in bios use config.plist not HD520 Perfect Sleep/Wake for 1080P Model no-touch, still bugs for 3K Exact same functionality as Catalina Notes
      Never tested USB C except for charging, works great USB devices eject on sleep (not really an issue) 4K model has minor sleep wake issues occasionally, 1080P is fully functional 4K sleep has been heavily improved however and glitches are rare, fixed by reopening lid POST
      run sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 If on 3K disable sleep completely for maximum stability If no mouse, install all voodoo kexts using Kext Utility Description
      This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies. You can easily view all the SSDT patches along with configuration files for the bootloader as they are all documented clearly in the files. This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I do not contribute to and am only responsible for the provided files, patches, and kext placements This guide provides a working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without "optimization" (because often they can break things). But, it is fully functional and preforms properly and is stable
      Make sure you are using DW1560 for wifi or else KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other. BIOS Setup
      Set all SATA operation as AHCI Disable Secure Boot, Fast Boot For Coil Whine improvement disable C-States Enable UEFI Booting INSTALL (VERY IMPORTANT)
      Due to structural changes in the setup of apple's Big sur, this EFI cannot boot the installer it can only boot into a system / device that has already been created and setup. To do this, you need to install Big Sur to a virtual machine (lots of guides online) and then create an dmg of that system, and restore it onto your HDD using the 'dd' command There are various guides online how to get this virtual machine setup complete. You can then use the attached EFI folder to boot and use macOS big Sur You can use this video to show you how to get your macOS pre-installed onto your hard drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMU3nhcbWHw Boot Entry Setup
      Boot into the BIOS of the computer, then navigate to the Boot setup (or entries (not sure what it is called exactly, but it will be a list of the options your computer selects to boot) Click add new, and make sure the USB isn't plugged in. Select the only option that is avaiable, and in FS0 navigate to Boot/BOOTx64. Add this as an entry, then select this as whatever priority you would like. Messages and Facetime
      Gnerate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial) This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of external recourses, or you can contact me for support. Headphones and Audio
      All audio from speakers should work perfectly along with Bluetooth and USB audio To resolve headphones static issue (wired) install combojack Finished!
      Congratulations, there really aren't any more steps that are required. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Donations
