Some background information. I work at a research institution, mostly dealing with numerics. Some numerical packages work faster in mac OS, so I wanted to give Hackintosh a try. I am dual-booting with Ubuntu 18.04.

  • Followed this great video. Everything went silky smooth.
  • Bluetooth dongle worked out of the box. No luck with GPU, Ethernet or sound though.
  • Using IntelMausiEthernet and AppleALC solved the problem with ethernet and sound.
  • At this point I was only left with GPU. No matter which method I tried the result was either post-boot black screen or notorious "Nvidia Chip Model 8 mb". 36 miserable hours later a light dawned upon me and I decided to unplug one of my monitors. BOOM I got the GPU working. Celebration time yay! Not really. Whenever I wanted to reboot my computer, I had to crawl under my desk like a monkey, unplug one of the monitors, wait until the login screen shows up and then plug the second monitor back. Enabling CSM from BIOS solved the issue. The only modifications I did to config.plist from Morgonaut's video is to enable NvidiaWeb under System Parameters and add darkwake=8 to boot arguments.

Here are some benchmarks.

Blender 2.8 BMW CPU GPU CPU + GPU
Ubuntu 18.04 8.46.49 1.39.06 1.31.05
macOS High Sierra 8.16.60 1.32.74 1.26.61
GeekBench CPU GPU
Ubuntu 18.04 4910 11782
mac OS High Sierra 5031 14512
Swift 4.1.3 Custom Root Finder CPU
Ubuntu 18.04 1.35
Mac OS High Sierra 1.37
  • Cinebench. For some reason CB thinks my CPU has 2C/4T.

Although Blender and Geekbench results are great, Swift is a bit disappointing. I will try to edit this post when I have more numerical benchmarks.

Obligatory desktop screenshot.
