    Foxlet got a reaction from ONOTech in AMD motherboard with a soldered on A9-9820 to offer performance comparable to Xbox One S   
    Ironically, with an LGA115x cooler (like the Intel Stock cooler). The die guard should protect against chipping the APU.

    Yep, I wonder if hardware accelerated encoding + XSHM wasn't enabled.

    Foxlet got a reaction from hishnash in [Update] Apple discontinues Bootcamp for ARM Macs; Microsoft has no comment on Virtualised W10 ARM on ARM Macs   
    Yep! It's natively supported as a boot mechanism from Linux -> Linux (used in the server space where a full reboot can take minutes, and in bootloaders like Petitboot), and a version for XNU has been implemented in order to dual-boot jailbroken iPhones.
     
    Windows support is a larger challenge as source is lacking for important components like the Kernel and HAL, although there are workarounds such as emulating EFI boot services as part of kexec. Implementing any of this won't be trivial though.

    Compatibility with macOS isn't down to generic brands, but more so the particular on-board hardware that exists in a motherboard. Networking, sound, and on-board I/O are all under consideration when picking a model.
     
    Outside of that, UEFI compatibility also matters, badly written firmwares will break the boot process from Clover -> XNU either due to memory fragmentation (KASLR fail) or driver issues.

    macOS-Simple-KVM now has support for macOS Catalina, by the way. Instructions to set it up are on the same page.

    Foxlet got a reaction from Ashley xD in Macs are SLOWER than PCs. Here’s why.   
    They absolutely can control that, that is the purpose of the SMC, controlling all the hardware sensors, fans, and some power management roles of the machine, alongside firmware properties to manage the clock of the CPU. In previous years it was even possible to control this from userland, using tools like CoolBook.

    Zen-platform CPUs have been natively supported solely through Clover patching for a while now, even with overclocks and other exotic modifications.
    I'm typing this on such a machine.

    He is indeed overselling it. While KVM allows the system platform and CPU to be circumvented (CPUID limitations mainly prevent Ryzen from working under macOS), the GPU will always be limited by the availability of kernel extensions (drivers). In this case, a 1070 will not work properly under any circumstances with Mojave until a new kext is built for it.

    AirDrop can be done to a limited degree over Ethernet (to devices on the same network) using some hacks (and a tun/tap), but without a macOS-compatible wireless adapter passed to the guest machine, it won't work as it does on native Macs.
