Otoy announced around june that it will be released later this year but as a preview for mac users. What does that means? Will it be working on my Macbook Pro mid 2015 AMD? Thanks y'all, appreciating any info on this.

Octane requires NVIDIA Cuda cores to work .. so AMD gear will be no good. Octane X is probably aimed at the newer Macs that can support an external graphics enclosure in which you can put whatever GPU you like in there. There are nVIDIA drivers for Mac OSX still .. but I can't imagine this working on any Mac Prior to 2019. Which is too bad .. I have a 2013 Mac Pro with twin AMD D500 GPUS .. but they're totally useless for Octane.

This is just my opinion and thoughts .. but it's based on what I know about Octane .. perhaps there is a different opinion?
