My 2011 iMac can't run Mojave, as I understand it. That's not ten years either....
That is correct and believe it or not, an awful lot of stuff is still 32bit.no more 32-bit apps?
I don't know how old you're talking about 10 year old macs can all run 64bit apps no problem whatsoever. The issue is that many applications, drivers, etc..are not actually written in 64bit. They will have to be in order to run on Catalina.If so, it may be more likely to leave older machines in the dust than other Mac operating systems and may not be the best gauge to use to judge the typical, optimal lifespan of a Mac.
True storyThere's also the factor that few of us use the latest operating system anyway. My Mac can support Mojave, but I'm still running Sierra.
Thanks - Just saw that info as well. From TechRadar: Mac Pro (Late 2013 or newer, or older models with Metal-compatible GPU)Its on a bunch of webpages this morning, Apple's Catalina requirements lists late 2013 Mac Pro as the oldest MacPro. Now..that being said...I seem to recall seeing some stuff like that about Mojave and then it turned out later that if you get a non-Apple Metal card it still actually is supported,.... so maybe we'll luck out on this too...but so far I've read it in several places this morning that 5,1 MacPro is being cut off at Mojave.
More or less, absolutely. I've upgraded the RAM and added an SSD along the way and couldn't be happier with how well this thing has held up over the years. I'm just a little bummed that the walls finally seem to be closing in on me, heh.But it still runs fine, no? Regardless, you guys are right, that is a detriment.
anyway, not sure TechRadar has it right. A hack is needed for 5,1:Thanks - Just saw that info as well. From TechRadar: Mac Pro (Late 2013 or newer, or older models with Metal-compatible GPU)
And here I am trying to stave off misinformation. My bad!anyway, not sure TechRadar has it right. A hack is needed for 5,1:
Well actually, for sampled compositions and especially in the post world, this machine is amazing. The amount of ram this machine can occupy is nothing short of impressive. PCIe expansion is amazing. Pro tools facilities will definitely be using these for HDX systems.Mac Pro 2019 for music production, seriously? Complete overkill
