max hardware /OS combination

Postby garydorn » Mon 28 Jun 2021 03:30

Hi Georges, can you give some idea of the max hardware/software combination please

Ive been running Boa 4.3 on a 2009 MacPro with El Capitan - 2 x 2.8 Ghz CPu, 32 GB Ram, radeon 5770 1GB GPU

Generally BoA runs okay - until start adding text into the model - then the whole thing slows down considerably - I found it so frustrating that I figure I needed an upgrade - CPU or GPU.

Last week I purchased a 2012 Macpro server, which has 2 x 2.4 GHz CPU, radeon 5770 1 GB GPU, 48 GB ram - Evidently this machine is quite upgradeable CPU, RAM and GPU. Anyway I installed High sierra on SSD and BoA won't run at all.

Evidently BoA is a 32 bit app and High Sierra runs only 64 bit apps. So looks like I have to downgrade the OS to El Capitan, unless there is some work around which I don't know.

I don't use Boa 4.4, as I don't like the green value box that follows the cursor - is there a setting or preference whereby I can turn if off?

Is BoA 4.5 going 64 bit? do you have an plans for this app?

Thanks Gary Dorn

Further to the above

Ive got BoA running on the Macpro 5,1 (late 20112 server) under Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6

This machine has 1 x 3.46 GHz 6 core Intel Xeon CPU, ATI Radeon 5770 1 GB GPU and 48 GB RAM ( I can swap the CPU tray to a 2 x 2.4 GHz 6 core CPU Intel Xeon = 12 core )
still would like to know what highest mac OS/hardware combination BoA can run on
