 Supported  Hardware for your Hackintosh

 

A Details on Most Useful Information when you are buying a Desktop Component or Laptop for Hackintosh , you will always have these questions in your mind :- Is my PC fully support or what ? , Compatible Hardware will make your Hackintosh 95 % Mac .

 

CPU :-

Intel :

All CPUs starting from Intel Core 2 Duo up to now (Broadwell) is supported,.

AMD :  most AMD CPU are supported but its required modified kernel .


 

GPU :- Most Crucial and important part   of the Hackintosh ( if it can’t work you can’t see the screen or the animation’s laggy as hell ) but with Dedicated or Intel iGPU you can have what you want

Integrated GPU (iGPU)

Integrated GPU (iGPU)

With Mac OSX , these iGPUs are native support:

Intel HD Graphics on 1st Generation Intel Core i Processor (Arrandale, need some kexts modding )
Intel HD 3000 on 2nd Generation Intel Core i Processor ( Sandy Bridge )
Intel HD 4000 on 3rd Generation Intel Core i Processor ( Ivy Bridge )
Intel HD 4400 (laptop only) /4600/5000/Iris on 4th Generation Intel Core i Processor ( Haswell )

Discrete GPU

 

These GPUs are supported (the list may be incompleted or not correct at some points, please inform me about the GPU that works for you but not on the list or the one not works):

NVIDIA :

nVidia 7000 Series
nVidia 8000 Series
nVidia 9000 Series
nVidia GT 200 Series
nVidia GT 400 Series

Note : with Release of El-Capitan Apple introduces Metal which is not Supported by Nvidia , preferably Choose AMD Graphics with less modification get full QE/CI .

VGA (Graphics ) :

Mac OSX not supports VGA port so you cant use it but with some kext patching we can enable VGA on Hackintosh for HD3000 .

If you want to use VGA Graphics then go for Dedicated GPU which supports VGA in Mac OSX .
