Welcome to AMD OS X

Why not register now to gain full access.

Hello AMD OSX,

Just subscribed to this forum, i've got hackintosh for a long time (4th Intel Hackintosh now), atm im using a i7 4790k and i mostly use Logic Pro X to produce, mix and master music.

This days i've been searching for an update to my computer, was thinking about buying i7 5820k, i7 5930k, or i7 6800k mostly because of multicore performance, and i came accross AMD Ryzen 7 1800x, that i can buy NEW for the same price as one of this old i7 used.

So i'm in a huge doubt between keeping Intel or switching to AMD, but i can't find any posts or discussions about Logic Pro X stability and performance using AMD cpus.

Could someone tell me how Logic is running on High Sierra in your AMD Hackintoshes??? Is there any issues?

Thanks in advance.

I've forgot to mention i use a Firewire soundcard (RME Fireface 400), connected with a PCIe to Firewire card with TI chipset, and i'm also using a PCIe UAD-2 Octo card, so i would like to know if this would work aswell.

Also, if everything is stable with logic on amd processors, wich motherboard chipset would be better, B450 or X370?

There is no timing problems on AMD macos.
CPU will perform very good.

Macos on AMD is stable but have few issues like :
Nvidia GPU wont perform much better in AMD macos . Better go to for AMD GPU
Siri , iMessage , Facetime will not work on AMD macos . But icloud will work
Few Adobe application will crash on launch but can be fixed using a fix posted in the tutorials section.

@Jim Chang, What is your setup and does LR classic crash on all Ryzentoshes? I am looking forward to upgrading my rig from Intel to AMD but if Lightroom doesn't work then it's pretty much a deal breaker :(

Are you sure about the timing statement?
