It's tough to support anything earlier than 2017 or later GPUs. I also don't think that system has AVX2.

Not sure what's wrong here - its just a default cube. I am running a 2018 Mac mini i7 32GB with a Radeon VII eGPU - on macOS 11 Big Sur Beta 2(maybe thats what is wrong?)


Yes - updated the FAQ to note that only 10.15.6 is supported!

With an external GPU using an AMD card, that should work?

I had an old paid-for account for Octane on Mac with CUDA, but it's not letting me use it. Do I need to re-subscribe? I bought a new Mac Pro for this and was hoping get the free license. When will this be sorted?

I notice that I cannot select either my intel graphics (yes pathetic 15 on OB) but still would be good for somethings.. or my RX580
Will the 580 even be possible or should I get a newer card and wait for Big Navi? If I select them then go out and back in again they are de-selected.

We held back on Intel GPU support until macOS 11 mainly to get better driver support and hopefully more speed (maybe more like 23 OB). Anything earlier than Vega or Navi is not supported in this release. I'd wait for Big Navi - not sure how support for 580 may turn out TBH.

Great news but I am not finding my Mac Pro is compatible or not, any one can help me in that.

I have Mac Pro 2013 with AMD Fire Pro D700, Octane X will work...?

Thanks.
