Apple has updated a number of support documents on Mac OS Mojave release Monday, outlining older Mac Pro compatibility through graphic card upgrades and support for Boot C on certain iMac models.
A first document leads users to install macOS Mojave on the Mac Pros mid 2010 and mid 2012. As mentioned earlier, these machines did not provide GPUs to support Metal – Apple's 3D graphics API – and they need to be updated before they upgrade to macOS Mojave.
Apple lists a series of GPUs that support Metal, and with it macOS Mojave, for those who want to keep their outdated workhorses up-to-date.
The following cards are known to be compatible with metal:
- MSI Gaming Radeon RX 560 128-bit 4GB GDRR5
- SAPPHIRE Radeon PULSE RX 580 8 GB GDDR5
- SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition
- NVIDIA Quadro K5000 for Mac
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Mac Edition
13 Apple also lists cards that "may also be compatible" with macOS Mojave:
- AMD Radeon RX 560
- AMD Radeon RX 570
- AMD Radeon RX 580
- AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100
- AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
- AMD Radeon RX Vega 64
- AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100
- AMD Radeon Frontier edition
13 To check which graphics card is currently installed on a particular Mac, hold down the Option key and navigate to Apple menu gt System information gt Graphics / Displays. With compatible cards, & # 39; Supported & # 39; displayed next to the Metal entry.
A second support document helps resolve the "Installation can not continue with Boot C configured" warning that may appear on certain iMac models when installing macOS Mojave.
This warning appears only from the end of 2012 on 27-inch iMacs with installed 3TB hard drives and an existing Boot C partition. To bypass the message, users must back up their Windows data and then delete the Boot C partition before Mojave is installed.
Apple warns users that after they have completed the removal, they can no longer use Boot C to install Windows on their computers.
