I am longing to replace my now soon 10 years old mid 2009 MacBook Pro with something affordable that still can work me through some stuff. I am aware that the internal GPU of the Mac Mini is pretty weak, but testing on a 3 year old MacBook Pro 13 inch from time to time without any specific GPU also seems to work “fine”.
The performance of my GeForce 9600M GT 512 MB from my old MacBook Pro would still perform well, IF you guys would not decide to drop El Capitan which is the last version I can use unfortunately. Not all the blame on you of course but also on Apple I guess, it is after all also a pretty old System which I have.
Anyway lets get to the point (questions)
• does it make any sense whatsoever to get a Mac Mini
for the usage of Rhino without intention of buying an eGPU?
• does cycles run or lets say perform anywhere usable?
•@nathanletwory did you try cycles on such a system already?
Yes I know its all beta still, but is there anything you guys will or can do at all to reach out towards the standard hardware to make it perform as well as it can get from your side?
