Hi everyone, posting this here from the other octane X thread:
After today, we’ll stop accepting new forms for the beta. We are basically looking for about 10-15 high quality testers that 100% know octane inside out on the Mac for their existing DCC and can help us quickly and precisely isolate any variance that is specific to the metal version. We may also need to share this info with other partners that can help debug things outside octane itself, so it is a pretty focused effort in this phase vs. general and more casual user testing like our normal XB releases.
A few more updates:
- We are today finishing up an XB16 build of the iPhone standalone for the first phase of closed beta (Same XB16 version as macOS), so iOS should in fact be testable in tandem with MacOS releases, we just need to figure out how to share the app securely (TestFlight perhaps).https://www.facebook.com/groups/OctaneR
- probably good to remind everyone that closed beta is also needed to to more widely test new drivers and os builds (for osl features) that may not yet be out or even announced. That is why the NDA is there at all, and why we and our testers under NDA can’t yet share detailed specifics about performance. I personally really want to share those numbers. So hopefully this won’t be a restriction for too much longer, and of course won’t be the case when we do a public beta either.
