Hello,

I am waiting to receive the new Imac Pro 2017. It as a AMD Radeon Pro Vega 64, should i buy a external Nvidia Card to use the full power of Octane, or, are you going to release a version that work with AMD as it work´s with Nvidia.

Thank you

Hi RicardoClaraCouto,
to use OctaneRender under High Sierra, you need an Nvidia GPU,
Have a look at this alternative eGPU solution via Thunderbolt https://render.otoy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=43439&start=200#p280842 port.
In this way, you can use the internal GPU for system/monitor, while the external GPU is used only for rendering, at full power and with all VRAM.
High Sierra is supporting eGPU solutions by default, without external script.
you need to update to 10.13.2 , then update the Mac CUDA drivers to the following version:
CUDA 387.99 http://www.nvidia.com/object/macosx-cuda-387.99-driver.htm.
Update Nvidia GPU graphics drivers http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/127670/en-us
Then your Nvidia GPU should be correctly recognized, and Octane should be able to start.
