TRX40 Proxmox /OSX vs Vanilla Patches method!


Recommended Posts

  • Supervisor

Proxmox / OSX

 

Pros:

  • Stability
  • No need of any kernel patches to boot OSX
  • All apps are working well without any need of patching (Adobe suite, many audio plugin, all stuff intel based)
  • Pretty same performances in both CPU/GPU benchmarks vs vanilla patches method
  • you can install and do all by yourself..without waiting from others to discover new kernel patches


Cons:

  • The need of a linux system
  • PCIE passthrough success dependant of many factors 
  • For AMD GPU reset bug
  • Audio problems (in some situations)

 

Vanilla Patches method

 

Pros:

  • All AMD users use this method from the start
  • Stability
  • less learning curve process to setup
  • a "patches & play" system 🙂


Cons:

  • no availability of a clear method to find kernel patches by yourself, and, if no maintainer available..no JOY 😉 
  • Kernel Patches could change and if you like to update often your rig...could be a problem
  • No support from boot loader Devs for AMD system
  • A lack of support for old OSX as High Sierra 🙂 
  • Some App have to be patched and some time a bit of functionality could be lost

As a secondary con for Vanilla method I have poor 3d performance in OpenGL / Metal games, just like every AMD non trx40 user. Here is the open thread for the developers to help us: https://github.com/AMD-OSX/bugtracker/issues/5

 

We hope that zen3 architecture will work completely well in 3d without the fix pat patch just like trx40 zen2 cpus, because nobody is willing to solve this problem from ages.
