  • I recently got an Intel-based Mac Pro (MacPro2,1). This is one of the systems that Apple abandoned way too soon. It came with an ATI Radeon X1900 card, and I was able to flash one of my old AMD Radeon HD5870 cards for use in it.
  • According to Apple, the following graphics cards are known to be Metal-capable and compatible with macOS Mojave on the mid-2010 and mid-2012 Mac Pro models: MSI Gaming Radeon RX 560 128-bit 4GB GDDR5. SAPPHIRE Radeon PULSE RX 580 8GB GDDR5. SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition. NVIDIA Quadro K5000 for Mac.
  • . Please note that the Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 only is compatible with the 'Mid-2010' and 'Mid-2012' Mac Pro models. The other video cards above are compatible with the 'Early 2008' and 'Early 2009' as.
  • I have a 2009 Mac Pro and am curious about whether or not I can put two of the stock video cards in it. My friend has an identical Mac Pro, but has a better video card. I could put his old stock on.

661-5008 Apple Video Card NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512MB for Mac Pro 2008 & 2009 Mini DisplayPort / DVI & Mini display - Refurbished. Where used: Mac Pro (Early 2008), Mac Pro (Early 2009) Connectors/Video.

661-5718 Mac Pro Video Card ATI Radeon HD 5770, 1GB 639-0675A1289 MC742ZM/A 2008 2009 2010 2012 graphic card NB-2157W Special Price $152.49 Regular Price $299.00 Add to Cart. The other video cards above are compatible with the 'Early 2008' and 'Early 2009' as well as the 'Mid-2010' and 'Mid-2012' Mac Pro models. The excellent BareFeats has various ' shootouts ' that compares several of the above video cards with one another as well as stock Mac Pro video cards.

In this video, I explain the final upgrades I’ve done to the Mac Pro Rig, and how it holds up on daily use. Also, I wrap up this short documentary series. The graphics card or GPU provided by each recent - G3 and later - desktop Mac are listed below. For complete specs on a particular system, click on the name of the Mac (left column). For all Macs that match a specific graphics card or GPU - courtesy of EveryMac.com's Ultimate Mac Sort - click the graphics of interest (right column).

Best Mac Video Card

Hello,
I'd like to use a 4K display with a 2009 mac pro (4,1) so I'll need a new videocard.
I'm normally not really into fiddling with hardware but this seems easy enough.
Performance doesn't need to be state of the art, I just want to run a 4K display in some kind of retina mode for development work.
So far I have found this: http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Sapphire/100352MAC/ but it's sold out or discontinued.
Then I found this page with some recommendations: http://alikgriffin.com/may/22/how-upgrade-your-old-mac-pro-graphics-card
I'm just not sure how up-to-date these cards are and if they support a 4K resolution.
Can I just use any modern video card with a DisplayPort connector?
Any suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated!
