This Linux PC Runs macOS Faster Than a Real Mac

This hackintosh isn't a hacintosh... it's actually a Linux PC running macOS as a virtualized OS. And it's fast. Like, really fast.
Manjaro KDE Plasma:
Install snapd:
If macOS-Simple-KVM documentation isn't simple enough, this is a more in-depth guide:

    • @Coolfred both windows and Linux is built to work on computer with x86 architecture, so we can install Linux in every computer

  • i know this is a older video but i Have ben playing with mac os vm on unraid & its pretty easy to Set Up & pass through pretty much any thing ya need from a Gpu, mouse an key bord & a Sound Card & Even A USB Web Cam For Face Time & I Think it is by Far The Easiest Way I Have Ever Found To Run Mac OS in a VM & For The Thought Police Yes I Have Other Apple Tech as ! I Have a Bare Metal Mac Pro also !

  • Sosumi vs simple KVM. Does it make a difference for the performance? Is it significant, insignificant, none? I suppose that KVM wins this contest, but is it much better or comparable?

  • Not really sure how the GPU performance would be anywhere near bare metal as OSX doesn't even support NVIDIA now. Even if you're running High Sierra the cards that are supported are pretty limited.

  • Thanks my next project i have just done it on sosumi with ubuntu 2010 on an old dell small footprint using an nvidia 610 low profile i was impressed that audio passed through without me altering anything at all so far i have had it playing a 4k stream in Ubnunt no frame drops and a 1920 X 1080 stream in Macos with system info running to see the hardware hit roughly 80 percent all cores now for a bencmark its only a Core i7 ill see what i get ?. :-)

  • Curious what system config for mobo, cpu, gpu and ram you would say would be best price-performance to run final cut pro at least as well as it would run on a MAC MINI with M1 ― and if & how to pull what you have done here by running it on a duel boot windows-native linux set up as that would allow existing hardware to be used. Am planning a PC upgrade and so am trying to scope how to spec the components for that and if I will be able to get both PC and MAX OS environments with a min equivalent performance of a Mac mini M1 w16GB without buying a mac mini in addition to the pc components I will be getting. Thanks a bunch in advance if you are of the mind to reply on to comment.

  • RIP Sosumi... This video is not up to date anymore... Apparently I'm the first one to notice that Sosumi is gone coz there is no single shred of info in the web on where to find it anymore... Just dozens of blog articles and youtube videos about how to use snap to install it when, in fact, it's gone... Hows it goin, Apple ? ^^

    parityviolationparityviolationTháng trước
  • 4:14 apparently sosumi has been removed from the snap store... Not only is the link in the description broken. If you search the term sosumi on the website it wont find anything. And google or DDG dont show any search results for installing sosumi without snap... Even the github page only shows the run of the mill CLI installation that does not find any package named sosumi... It's been effectively wiped off the face of the w^3 WTF, it seems, I came along a bit too late into the game.

  • @Snazzy Labs: KVM and QEMU are two diffrent things ... QEMU is a type 2 hypervisor that runs within user space and performs virtual hardware emulation, whereas KVM is a type 1 hypervisor that runs in kernel space, that allows a user space program access to the hardware virtualization features of various processors. Just to make it clear that its not an "Accelerator" or whatever your fantasy has come up with ;) Beside that nice video :)

But it has been removed from the snapstore and I cant find a single shred of info using various search engines, including google, for installing without snap. Even the github page only offers the snap package. It's a shame, I was anxious to get this... Apparently Apple got to the FOSS-community somehow...

I solved that issue by building a threadripper system. The problem is I am now running that OS that I love to hate. ( I'm looking at you microsoft). I would love an HEDT linux video.

I've been trying to do this for the past 8 hours and all I've got is a virtual machine that won't boot with a network adapter and a completely messed up rendering. Impossible to see anything. It's so broken up. Not even talk about GPU passthrough.

I've allocated 8 GB of ram and 4 cores to the VM but still fells to un-responsive / laggy to being a real alternative to a real mac. Is it simply a question of adding enough ressources or any other tips for performance enhancements? Maybe there is a way to increase the vram for the integrated graphics I'm currently running on? (coffee lake, UHD 630 graphics).
