Sonoma Development Milestone: 3802-based GPUs!
Published on July 18, 2023 by Mykola Grymalyuk

We're extremely proud to announce that we've hit another major milestone with macOS Sonoma development: Metal Graphics Acceleration on 3802-based Graphics Cards, including Intel Ivy Bridge and Haswell, and Nvidia Kepler GPUs!
Thanks to the amazing work of EduCovas and our other developers, our old Macs are even closer to running Sonoma!

This wouldn't have been possible without everyone's support through OpenCollective. Thanks to the donations, EduCovas was able to purchase development hardware that would normally be quite challenging to ship with customs and such. Having hardware on hand for development is critical, and greatly helps with turn around as EduCovas has shown by having their new Mac Pro for only a short period.

There's still a lot of work remaining, but we hoping to have early beta tests in the coming month once we get some of the larger obstacles cleared up. As with previous years, non-Metal graphics will likely be released a fair bit after due to the complex nature of re-introducing OpenGL rendering into macOS.

For those interested, our development can be followed on GitHub :
Otherwise, we hope everyone's excited for this fall!
