Single Core = 1319
Single Core is faster than all Mac models on GeekBench.
Multi-Core = 14200.
Multi core is around the same as "Mac Pro (2019) Intel Xeon W-3245 @ 3.2 GHz (16 cores)" = 14571
OS X Catalina 10.15.3
Bluetooth - Keyboard + Apple Mouse. Occasionally drops out and reconnects. Not a large range < 2m is more reliable
Xcode - Almost Perfect. It builds OS X/iOS projects very well. So far the only issue is a build error for an iOS app project that includes an Apple Watch app. The build error is generated by the step to compile the watch images into the watch app. It appears to be an issue in the command line build tool. I had to build a custom tool to manually copy the compiled watch images into the app.
VMWare Fusion - As expected. Errors: "AMD-V" Might be disabled + "This host does not support AMD RVI hardware"
For a scheduled shutdown, it usually hangs after appearing to close all applications if there are several applications open. It just shows the background screen image with no icons. Not sure if this is related to the hardware but I wrote an AppleScript app to close all applications before the shutdown schedule.
I was looking for a high speed/thread count CPU to use for building apps with Xcode. The 3950X works great for this purpose. Xcode uses all 32 threads to give it incredible compile/build performance.
I am very impressed with the performance and compatibility of this build. Apart from a minor Xcode build tool issue (above) this works great for me. The documentation was great and enabled me to build a custom config.plist file to suit this hardware.
Thanks to all of those who built the tools and documentation to allow us to build Hackintoshes like this.
