We just couldn't wait any longer, our team has begun the move to Win10 PC's. This Mac fanboy is very sad.

For a period of 3 weeks I tried to work with Windows too. But Windows isn’t an alternative for a Mac unfortunately. It is not powerful enough. If you only doing rendering, it’s okay. But not if you are making many other things, as I do, it’s impossible to switch.

I manage a grand format print shop in our company Along with being the lead 3-D artist. I use Photoshop, illustrator, after affects along with Cinema 4D on a daily basis as well as working with vectorworks to do real world floorplans. I am the biggest Mac fan boy you could know The first computer I bought myself was a PowerBook G4.
This is not a decision we made lately, but when I can price out and AMD, with literally the fastest CPU available right now along with three 2080 TI‘s, for under $10,000 no Mac Pro for will beat that performance per dollar.

  • There is no actual CUDA driver for Mojave
  • There is no Octane that is running on an iMac under Mojave.
So, what can I do now? Buy VRay?!? I don't want to leave the Octane platform!
Is there a download for Octane X available, perhaps a public beta?



you can always install bootcamp, and run windows. its a temp solution, but it works for me. I can at least use my RTX card with my macbook pro.
