New look Macstorm VIII
A new case for the Macstorm VIII in our offer. BeQuiet Silent Base 802 is a no-compromise chassis for professionals.
We know that more and more people are looking for something smaller.
But there are also users who want a “full-size” case. The advantages are undoubtedly. No limitations whatsoever the choice of cooling system, graphics card or more drives.
Macstorm Box a cheaper alternative
Macstorm Box is another model that uses newest 12th generation Alder Lake processors. Thanks to the new technology differences between between “home” computers and expensive workstations is getting smaller and smaller.. And so it is here. Basic processor i5-12400 allows us to freely work in several areas. But the version with a processor i7-12700 and graphics RX 6600 is as if we works on 16 core Mac Pro.
Yes with MacstormBox it is possible. Depending on your needs, you can expand this computer at will. The “economic” version of Macstorm, but the new technology gives it a professional character. On board is a native WiFi/BT card. Relatively small casing but it does not limit us.
Radeon RX 6600 faster successor to older RX 5500/5700
Another relatively inexpensive Radeon RX 6600 8GB card in our offer which is fully compatible with macOS Monterey. Affordable in the sense that it costs as much as older constructions such as RX 580 or RX 5500XT. What is more, it is 50% faster than RX 5500 XT and not much inferior to RX 5700 XT. With this card, we no longer need to use older technology. The card is available for nearly all of the “bigger” Macstorms computers .
Macstorm VIII equipped with 12 th Gen CPU
Macstorm VIII is our first computer using the latest Intel processors and is now available! The basic version with i5-12600K processor (faster than i9-11900K) is even …cheaper than Macstorm VII.
A machine recommended for all who care about maximum performance without compromise. How does it perform on macOS? Very well in tests we get the maximum performance from ALL cores which translates into high scores. Intel’s new “hybrid” technology divides the cores into two types of P-Core and E-Core; the first work in turbo mode and the second in “energy saving” mode. It is this technology that makes this unprecedented performance boost possible.
All cores run at maximum efficiency, which is the basis for the performance of the Macstorm VIII. Special software enables this technology to be used in macOS Monterey as well.
12 th Gen Intel CPUs Alder Lake in Macstorm now
The new 12th generation Intel processors are now available at Macstorm. Currently there are three models of processors Intel Core i5-12600K, Intel Core i7-12700K and Intel Core i9-12900K. All have one thing in common – unprecedented performance increases of up to 50% over the older 11 Gen. The weakest of them – Intel Core i5-12600K (10 cores) is faster than i9-11900K CPU.
Radeon RX 6600 XT 8 GB already in our store
We have been waiting a long time for this card or rather for macOS drivers that allow it to be used in macstorm. The card belongs to the same series as RX 6800/6900 XT and has comparable performance to RX 5700 XT. However, what interests us most these days is the price – comparable to the already obsolete RX 580 or RX 5500 XT. It is not cheap but at least performance is twice as good as the cards quoted here. The required system version is macOS Monterey 12.1 and higher.
11 th Intel Generation CPU now available for Macstorm Computers !
Some time ago….
9th generation Intel CPU “Coffee Lake refresh ” now in Macstorm computers
A month after the premiere we have the latest 9 generations of Intel processors onboard Macstorm. You do not wait a year or two for new technology as in the case of Apple Mac . But you use it here and now – Macstorm is always technologically ahead. What’s new this time? The processors are dedicated to serious computing tasks, so there is no “budget” version here. So we have a six-core Intel Core i7-9600K 3.7 GHz about 10% faster than its predecessor. Then i7-9700 K 3.6 GHz Eight cores faster about 20% from the older generation. And this is probably the most interesting Intel 9 generation processor .It is not much more expensive than its predecessor, i7-8700K.
And top model – Intel Core i9-9900 K 3.6 GHz – eight cores and sixteen threads. Currently, processors are available as an upgrade in Macstorm Cube V, Macstorm IV and Macstorm Micro V.
New laptops with Mac OS. This time it is an economic version dedicated to all who want to have mobile equipment with Mac OS but without paying a fortune) In a straight line it is the equivalent of a more expensive MacBook.
The i3-6006U processor and the Intel HD 520 graphics card give similar power as in the Appla product. The 8 GB memory and the 240 GB disk can be exchanged for a larger one – they are not “soldered” on the motherboard as in the case of a MacBook. Other additions include a DVDRW recorder with the option of exchanging it for an additional disk and an Ethernet port. A 1920×1080 Full HD screen size of 15.6 “. So big and even very big compared to what’s on the MacBook. The world of mobile laptops with MAC OS has become available to everyone.
Intel “Coffee Lake ” processors bring a more power to Macstorm computer
The new eight-generation Intel processors codenamed Caffee Lake set new standards.
This means a 40% increase in performance at similar prices as older generation processors! What’s more, they are natively compatible with MAC OS High Sierra 10.13.2!
Currently all Macstorms from the “top ” work on these processors. In practice, i3 -8100 processors are already quad-core and i5-8600K/i7-8700K processors have six cores. This gives an amazing performance boost so far reserved for the pro segment or processors on the X99 or X299 chipset. While similar processors appear in the Appla offer in the summer of 2018, they are already standard on macstorm computers. A huge reserve of power and another argument to switch from the original Mac to Macstorm
Mac OS High Sierra 10.13
The new Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.1 is now available for Macstorm computers. The tests were very good and there is no reason to wait for further corrections. A very important change is the new appla APFS file system. SSDs are automatically converted to this file system during installation. However, traditional HDD discs are left in the old HFS +. You will be able to choose between Sierra 10.12.6 and High Sierra systems for a while.
It is known that there will always be software that is not yet 100% compatible with High Siera. That is why we leave such a choice. But in general, we are focused on serving one target High Sierra system.
We are going to the processors of the seventh generation Intel “Kaby Lake”
The current version of the Sierra system treats these processors as native and therefore 100% compatible with MacOS.

And here’s the latest test program Geekbench 3.1.6 standard version MacStorma II processor Devil’s Canyon i7-4790K @ 4.9 GHz. Click on the exact test!
Lenovo MacStorm mini – budget “killer” Mac mini
Lenovo MacStorm mini is unusual for our company equipment.
The idea was to build a computer that is compatible with Mac OS X as functional as the Mac mini (2012), but costing a maximum of 1200 zł. However, computer-based construction of new good quality components we use is not in the values that possible. So we decided to “extreme facelift” of the computer brand Lenovo (formerly IBM) “Refurbished” means the recovery but in perfect condition.
On the one hand it gives a guarantee of reliability, on the other allows to obtain performance comparable to or even exceeding for graphics Mac Mini. This Lenovo hardware “unbreakable” and certainly outlive many a new Mac mini. Of course there is no comparison to the new MacStormów because it’s a completely different technology. But if someone enough power to Mac mini will definitely be happy.
New online store and the new “power supply”
Currently there is a change of power supplies in some models MacStorma to Be Quiet Pure Power L8. These power supplies are as solid as the company OCZ but they still have the additional advantage – they are an extremely quiet. Be Quiet even amazes work culture and it is difficult to find comparable products. They are exceptional as MacStorm and that’s it.
MacStorm Raven – the Mac mini with a performance of Mac Pro
The unique cooling system allows him to not only work with the most powerful i5 or i7 processor Haswell but also in turbo mode with a clock above 4 GHz. It is completed by the enormous capacity of the HDD 2 TB or 3 TB, there were still a place for SLIM DVDR drive.
MacStorm Raven is an innovative design in excess of certain barriers which until recently were not to go for ITX computers.
NVidia GeForce GTX 780 – from today available for MacStorma Infinity II
Finally, the long awaited and already fully functional under Mac OS X graphics card – GeForce GTX 780 3GB. This graphic monster has now 2304 CUDA cores which have been successfully used in the most demanding applications for graphics / video. It also offers full support for OpenCL. From today, the great power available not only for Windows users but also under OS X Mavericks in our top of the range product MacStorm Infinity II.
MacStorm Infinity II – now faster than 12 core of the new Mac Pro! Extreme overclocking version.
Obviously this is not the case only thanks to native support for Intel i7-4930K in the latest version of Mac OS X. I need not add that computer course has been successfully tested stability and murderous hours of renderings.
It is worth mentioning that the 12 core MacPro in the basic version costs over 30 thousand zł MacStorm Infinity II while only 11 thousand. So we have a machine THREE times cheaper and the performance of the CPU are nevertheless higher. While the graphics card GPU GTX 680 in many applications successfully ahead of 2X or even the GPU D500 D700. Anyway, you have been expected because the graphics / video card Nvidia monopoly is to die for.
For the curious currently looks like Geekbench Mac computers to Apple provides a link http://browser.primatelabs.com/mac-benchmarks
On our site are already testing this machine – conqueror of 12 core MacPro –
Here MacStorm Infinity II tests .
Speed up ! Infinity II after “lifting”
Since today models MacStorm II mini-MacStorm II will be sold with Intel i7 version K – allowing a substantial increase productivity.

For example i7 4770K processor email@example.com GHz Geekbench row reaches 18,000. For customer convenience and safety of higher timing is handled automatically by the motherboard – not modify the Bios settings, changing only the CPU multiplier. This ensures stability and a very easy way to change the speed of the processor.

MacStorm mini II – from the outside it looks the same the previous version. In the MacStorm in contrast to the original new Mac to give the user the greatest potential for self upgrading your computer.
The idea is the principle of modularity means that almost every component can be exchanged for better or make another and the only limitation is the computer’s motherboard is searching for a new functionality MacStorm mini which is already more than half a year we fitted it in semico standard microATX. This means up to three additional PCIe slots (in practice two) that can handle different cards. Another advantage is the possibility of DDR3 memory expandable up to 32 GB – thanks to four DDR3 memory slots.
Also increased the number of outlets that support SATA disks and drives – now there are six and is the latest standard SATA 6Gb.
Maybe for a regular desktop computer are not any extra inventions but for a small compact Macstorma mini is pretty cool proposition. MacStorm-Mini II has an interesting housing resembling a Mac G4 times.
Housing is is the same – when it comes to dimensions or design – changing only the interior into more functional – after all unused space into something useful. And best of all – the price is the same)
