ASEM has stated that what EFI-X USA LLC is doing is a breach of ASEM’s terms and conditions, and as such, it does not want to be involved with the US company any longer. ASEM sets itself apart from companies lik PsyStar because ASEM doesn’t market itself as a competitor to Apple. EFI-X USA LLC pitched its computer, pre-installed with the EFI-X dongle and Mac OS X, as a competitor to Apple’s Mac Pro, and that’s what ASEM doesn’t approve of. In addition, the American company provided poor customer support, ASEM’s CEO states.
ASEM has already set up a new deal with another newly-setup retailer, ensuring that US customers can still get their hands on the magic dongle.
In a talk with The Inquirer, ASEM’s CEO also spilled the beans on some upcoming features: the EFI-X dongle will soon support Intel’s Core i7 and x58 architectures, followed later on by support for Ati’s Radeon HD 48×0 and Nvidia’s GTX 285 graphics chips. Combined with triple-channel DDR3, that could be some seriously fast Mac OS X machine.
the summary regarding EFI-X is a bit misleading, it doesn’t make every standard PC able to 100% emulate a Mac and some patches will not work without some tweaking like most Hackintoshes.
It’s also designed 100% to allow Mac OS X to boot on PCs, there aren’t any other EFI OS’s out there.
