CUDA on High Sierra on a Mac Pro (?)

DOES anyone know whether Rhino 5 did, would or could take advantage of CUDA on MacOS 10.13 (i.e. High Sierra) please?

I have Rhino 7 running on 10.14 (Mojave) on a separate drive in my 2012 MacPro and although it will take advantage of Apple’s “Metal”, this is necessarily without the extra advantage of CUDA, from which Apple & Nvidia between them dropped support. I will uninstall CUDA from that volume.

What I am contemplating is a workaround, for rendering purposes only. If the answer to the question is yes, then I will try to install CUDA on that volume with the earlier OS.

Both volumes use the Nvidia Quadro K5000 for Mac card (which provides a Boot Screen).

No CUDA support in Rhino on the Mac in any version.

Apart from that…

Only Rhino 8 will run on Metal.

Grateful for the swift response.

Not what I hoped to hear, but I did want to be clear. Thanks.
