Snow Leopard Already Running on New Sandy Bridge CPUs

Tonymacx86 has already managed to get Mac OS X Snow Leopard running on Intel's new Sandy Bridge CPU.

Today Intel lifted the Non-Disclosure Agreement on it's new Sandy Bridge LGA Socket-1155 next generation performance chipset and CPUs. The good news is, we've already successfully installed Mac OS X Snow Leopard!

The bad news is, until Apple uses these CPUs, it's a bit of a science experiment, as you'll need to use a "patched" non-standard Darwin kernel in order to boot the system. For those of you buying new systems anyway, we're opening a special section of the forum dedicated to Sandy Bridge.

The new processor brings a significant performance improvement; however, it is quite a bit of work to get things running. You can find some instructions at the link below to help you get started.
