Which graphics cards or integrated GPUs support Metal?

14 September 2015 - 08:47 AM


i would like to Know which graphics card or integrated GPUs support Metal  on OSx El Capitan ....




Here's a list of common Mac GPUs that are good candidates for Metal support :

  • Intel HD 5000- and 6000-series GPUs (Haswell and Broadwell integrated GPUs, used in 2013-2015).
  • Nvidia GeForce 600- and 700-series GPUs ( these were common in 2012 and 2013-era Macs).
  • AMD Radeon 5000-, 6000-, R9 200, and R9 300-series GPUs (common in 2010-2011-era and 2014-2015-era Macs).
  • AMD FirePro D300, D500, and D700 GPUs (2013 Mac Pro).

Here are common GPUs from Macs that will run El Capitan, but may not support Metal because they lack OpenGL 4.3 support:

  • Intel HD 3000- and 4000-series GPUs (Sandy and Ivy Bridge integrated GPUs, used in 2011 and 2012).
  • Nvidia GeForce 8000-, 9000-, 100-, and 300-series GPUs (common between 2007 and 2010).
  • AMD Radeon 2000- and 4000-series GPUs (common between 2007 and 2010).

You can use Metal_Test by Netkas


Please share your trials  :)
