    Apple’s new Mac Pro will max out at 28 CPU cores, but that’s projected to cost as much as a midrange sports car. Nothing a bare metal Hackintosh can’t fix…

    Ryzen Threadripper 3990x 64 core/128 thread needs to go in it ;) On a Rog Zenith II Extreme... Mac OS runs on Ryzen now too... better buy one Linus
    EDIT: If you really wanna destroy the Mac Pro buy 2x AMD EPYC 7742's and a Supermicro H11DSi-NT and 2TB memory. You can afford it. Destroy the Mac Pro ;) Spend $20000 to destroy it Linus I command you (then you could use it for your encode server when done... 256 threads :) )

    Anthony’s hanging on to his hair like Jack hung on to that door Rose was on. I’ll never let go jack. Jacks gone. And so is your hair. Not tryna be a duck or a dick. And I know that analogy made no sense.

    Should've used the Gigabyte C621 WD12. Though the x299 WU8 is another unique board. It has dual 8747 PLX chips for 4-way 16X PCI-e 3.0 GPU support or 7-way 1 16X 6 8X GPU support.

    Hackintosh are bullshit and so is the community. If you are tech savvy you still won’t get it going. If you are extremely tech savvy you may get it working. If you can’t get it going good luck getting help from the forum community. I verified my hardware was comparable and still could not get it going. No help from the community.
