I wish it worked on Mac Pro 2013... It kinda does, but runs on D700 rather than on an external Vega 64. Is there a way to choose a GPU to test?

Again the GTX1080Ti humiliates AMD. This card must be a nightmare for AMD. How did they prevent mass suicide?

simple: by having Apple drop NVidia Smile

i am very far behind for this discussion, but for a chance you'll read this. i just put my new external graphic card for a test, and it is working. (radeon rx vega 64 on sonnet breakaway box 650W - average of 4800). those of you who want to choose external GPUs. command i on the app (on mac) to get its info, and check 'prefer external GPU'.

Not Metal-specific (maybe one day we'll get a MoltenVK Blender, no time soon though), but you guys may also want to check out Blender Benchmark for Mac and PC, which tests GPUs directly and with pretty rigorous scene cases.

Bring peace to your computing life: stop trying to understand Apple.

I'll update this at some point, as this is a very old version of my renderer now. Probably after 10.15 is out, as there are new features to use there (hopefully I can get high complexity scenes running at good quality). 

And yes, if it's using the internal GPU, select the app icon in finder and  press cmd-i to open the file info. Check the 'prefer external GPU' box.

The program does not work on Catalina, are you planning to do an update ?

It says it cannot be inspected for malicious software so no way.

Right click on it from Finder and select Open. Click the open anyways (or something like that) when the warning pops up.

Pretty much anything other than from Apple now gives this warning that it's not been inspected. It only happens the first time you start it.
