 +Macs are great for running Mac Rhino. Macs are pretty bad for running Rhino for Windows. For several years now, Apple has used Intel HD and AMD Radeon display adapters. Since Apple writes the OpenGL drivers for them, they work quite well. AMD intends their Radeon adapters for DirectX gaming under Windows and have not supported Windows OpenGL since late 2013. The Macs with the Intel HD Iris adapter will work but are not very fast.

 Rhino 5 SR11 runs on Intel HD4000 and newer chipsets. Common hardware that includes these newer chipsets are 13" Apple MacBooks and Microsoft Surface Pro tablets. These are not high performance cards. ​ Rhino 5 SR11 runs on Intel HD4000 and newer chipsets.
