Ryzen build for Win+iOS with single GPU


Recommended Posts

I am using unRAID since the start of the year and I am happy with it since that day (Intel build with two NVIDIA cards). Now is the time that my partner needs a new PC.She needs to run Windows and Mac iOS so I thought unRAID could be an option. So we checked the requirements and came up with this:



my questions:

  1. Is it possible to run iOS as VM on such a machine? (Mac iOS on ryzen?) There are tutorials for Mac iOS and unRAID out there, but they all use Intel CPUs. Is there a reason for this? Or only a coincidence?
  2. Is it better to buy a second, very cheap (50€/$) GPU only for unRAID?
  3. Is it possible to use GPU passthrough to a VM in this setup? There is no cpu gpu possibility for the OS unRAID, so what will unRAID itself do? (And I also think that only one VM can run with such a passthrough, but that is fine :) )
  4. Any rough mistakes in this build in general? Something I have overseen?


Thanks in advance.
