Atom CPU - Sir, your pants are on fire.

I made a post a few days about the Atom CPU now being unsupported by Apple’s latest Snow Leopard update, 10.6.2. This information is based on very reliable sources that have each personally tested the update. A few days later, I started to hear feedback that it is IN FACT supported. The Insanelywind user “MachVoluM” has posted this picture showing the kernel version.

Kernel 10.2.0 - Date Fri Jul 31 22:47:34 PDT 2009

I spoke to another colleague of mine and he noticed the date of the kernel. He sent me a picture of his kernel information from 10.6.1, which uses the same kernel as 10.6.0. (The name has been removed for privacy purposes)

Kernel 10.0.0 - Date Fri Jul 31 22:47:34 PDT 2009

As you can see the date is exactly the same as the old kernel. Now, let’s take a look at my gf’s Core2Duo system that’s running 10.6.2 Build 10C535. (The name has been removed for privacy purposes)

Kernel 10.2.0 - Date Fri Oct 16 01:47:07 PDT 2009

Obviously the date is different than the previous two. Anyone can tell the first image from “MachVoluM” is a fake. My sources still tell me the Atom CPU is still unsupported even in the latest 10.6.2 build 10C540.

That is all.
