So I bought an iPhone XR, which is my first foray back into the world of Apple in a while, and damn being in the ecosystem looks like a dream.

So, having been out the hobbyist world for a while, I wanted to know if a hackintosh system is still achievable without much performance loss (if there even was any before?).

My setup is the i5 7600K, GTX 1060 6gb, 8gb of RAM (I know, pretty measly), and, of course,  the crown jewel: an NZXT H440.

Further, are Hackintoshs still temperamental machines, or are they pretty stable these days?
Many thanks,

Xvantok

Sorry, no Nvidia drivers in MacOS 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I don't think there's any performance loss? at least not for CPU performance, but GPU might be a different story because they're different drivers than in Windows, the difference would be little though

Don't know about stability, you can research on that, but your GTX 1060 is not supported in MacOS Mojave (latest one), so you'll be forced to use MacOS High Sierra instead which is still supported by apple, so i don't think you'll be missing out on anything

Ok cool thanks - how long does it normally take for Nvidia to release drivers for the latest macOS updates?

well it's been almost a year and they still haven't released Nvidia Drivers, and I don't think they ever will to be honest, even their new cheese grater Mac Pro is using AMD GPU's, so there's no reason they need to release Nvidia Drivers

Edit: just noticed, i'm talking about Apple not Nvidia

Unless people start complaining when they upgrade their Mac Pro's to Nvidia GPU's and the drivers are non existant, but they might not even care

Not really Nvidia, it's pretty much entirely Apple. Nvidia can't push a new driver unless Apple actually allows it.

You can get a stable hack with the right hardware. Your motherboard is an important factor in that, look up if people have been successful with the same hardware as you before. As others mentioned, Nvidia = !Mojave, get an RX 580 8gb used for the cost of a Windows licence if you want to have a reliable hack.

There are no drivers that are officially compatible with NVIDIA hardware for macOS. Sorry!
