Managed to get a successful install last week. Have been playing around trying different things. I am using it alongside Windows which is going to be for gaming.
I used my Nvidia 1070 in a eGPU setup for gaming hooked to my MacBook Pro 2016. I thought to give the Hackintosh a shot and I am aiming to get this system working although I realize a lot of things aren't gonna work right away. I intend to replace the Nvidia 1070 with the RX 5800X (Edit: Actually meant RX 5700 XT). I've read rumors that Apple is going to support the next gen AMD GPUs with the release of Catalina. Currently there is nothing that specifically indicates that in the betas. It remains to be seen. I'm patient. Here is some info on that: https://appleinsider.com/articles/19/06 ... alina-beta
I followed the vanilla guide here: https://vanilla.amd-osx.com/
- Native Audio
- USB2.0 and USB3.1
- NVMe (both slots)
- Mic (Blue Snowball)
- Headphones (front and back panel)
- Second monitor (due to lack of Nvidia driver)
- Hardware Acceleration (I get 1080p but the UI is sluggish at times)
- SmallTreeIntel82576 (patched)
- AppleALC (version 1.4.0, layout 7)
- Applied manual fix for USB devices : https://amd-osx.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4986
Overall I am very happy with the results. I was actually expecting much worse.
Here is my CPU benchmark: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/13921532
Those scores keep me going.
