I've been out of the loop for a while; just ticking along on my Sandy Bridge Hack running System 10.11 El Capitan.

Has anyone seen a good build for a modern system with PCIe storage?
Do you need to buy into a server socket to get enough PCIe lanes?

For some reason my Hackintosh is running quite sluggishly relative to my Mid-2015 MBP. This shouldn't happen as I'm working with an i7-7770k and a 1080ti. Is there some boot option I ought to have ticked or unticked that could be causing this?

Don't think so, running Windows off the same SSD and it works fine. Could have something to do with using 2 monitors maybe?

A 1080ti shouldn't have problems with 2 monitors (that I know of). The MBP probably has a faster SSD than your hackintosh.. but that shouldn't be that noticable. Sometimes SSDs have problems though, one area of the thing can work at full speed and others not so much, but of course this would be a failure case.

I would at the very least pull up Activity Monitor and poke around in that and see if anything sticks out.

The main thing that made my hackintosh feel "sluggish" was just the crappy scrool wheel implementation in OSX, since you are probably using a generic mouse and not a touchpad it will feel very different from the smooth touchpad scrolling on an Apple laptop.

I've had really good results getting that smooth scrolling back with https://smooze.co
I run my hackintosh with four 120hz displays and stuff like dragging a window across displays and scrolling (with smooze at least) feels way snappier than it does even in Windows

I'm using a Magic Trackpad 2. Nothing stands out in Activity Monitor.

I was having major slowdowns mainly to do with i/o. Enabled trim support in my older SSD and everything went back to normal.

The issue may be Nvidia's latest drivers, which have introduced persistent stuttering/lag. Try this.

Apparently nvidia fixed this issue with the latest driver version. I was using the latest nvidiafixup kext to solve the issue before but the latest drivers seem to fix it as well.

I've come across the Vega Frontier Edition for a good price.
Are these vaguely comparable to 1080 in OS X / for Metal2 apps?

Hey Hackintosh thread!

I've had a system running dual MacOS and Windows for the last 3 years relatively perfectly, but it seems my GPU (a GTX 970) is dying and I need to replace it. My first thought was to get a 1070 as it's the replacement for my 970 but prices are such now that I'd rather not spend $450 on a card, so I was looking at a 1060 which will still give me a slight bump over the 970 and is a "reasonable" $300. I've been tempted to go for a RX 580 though as it does get native MacOS support so I could stop messing with the NVIDIA web drivers which could be nice. The only thing is that the RX 580 is about $50 more and seems to be more power hungry than the GTX 1060.

edit: nvm: went with the 1060. Saving $50 and since my Hackintosh is already set up for NVIDIA stuff it'll be an easier upgrade, plus Amazon will deliver one today for free.

going the AMD route is much better imo, the nvidia drivers have a lot of weird issues that crop up constantly. 580/Vega literally work OOB with no kexts or weird stuff

i run fortnite at 1440p ultra and it does a smooth 60fps. i doubt theres actual benchmarks for 1080/V64 in osx, but theyre similar in all the Windows DX/OpenGL benchmarks i've seen

also get the liquid cooled card because the stock fan on the FE is hilariously loud

Sadly the Vega with the closed loop cooler was still hilariously expensive.
Maybe I should just get a 580 now they're cheap.
