And I don’t see why Apple couldn’t have the kernel adjusted to work for both Intel and AMD at the same time, or to just have to different versions of the OS like they did during the PowerPC->Intel transition. It would mostly be invisible to the end user. Thunderbolt would even be working since it works on a couple AMD-based motherboards. It doesn’t make sense for Apple to do that right now though when it’s pretty certain that the switch to ARM is really where they’re headed.
    I’d bet everything that Apple has had AMD optimized versions of MacOS in development and running for years...just in case.

    You can always use this https://github.com/AMD-OSX/AMD_Vanilla.
    Apple is picky when it comes to GPU's, with all x86-64 CPU's "it just works..." (atleast with some help of the community).

    Apple switching to AMD would be about the only thing that would make me jump back to Windows.
