    MP 7,1 Pro Display XDR & FedEx

    I could not find a forum for the XDR. I must be blind or there's isn't one. XDR and Stand out for delivery via FedEx. I'm at home waiting. The regular FedEx driver shows up at approximately 2:30pm. We know each other and have a short conversation. He says the items will more than likely arrive...

    Dual XDR Display setup: MBP 5600M or Mac Pro W5700X?

    First of all, I am impressed by the knowledge of many MacRumors forum members here. So a big thank you for all the information shared by many of you already. I'm excited for the switch to ARM - not because of predicted regular benchmark improvements, but mainly because of what the dedicated...

    XDR Smudge

    Hi all, Got a Glass XDR and its awesome. But started to notice a dark smudge that shows up in at the bottom middle of the screen. It only shows up against dark grey. Against white, it doesn't show up. It's not the normal fall-off (I don't think) it's more concentrated into one space. Anyone...

    Mac Pro reporting XDR as 8K display?

    I *know* that the Apple Pro Display XDR is a 6K display. It says so everywhere. Yet, macOS Catalina (10.15.5) is reporting my XDR display as an 8K display: Clearly, something is not right. That said, using Parallels Toolbox resolution switcher I can set resolutions of 3840x2160 (retina) as...

    Resolved Pro Display XDR shows blue artifacts on P3-500 nits preset

    This question mostly to XDR display owners. Have you guys experienced blue background artifacts on Apple Display (P3-500 nits) preset in the Apple Photos app? I was testing presets and playing around to find the best preset for me and found that weird behaviour. I'm running a base MBP 16"...

    MP 7,1 HDR with capture card and Pro Display XDR

    I’m looking for the solution that would let me connect PS4/Xbox to Pro Display XDR via HDMI. I think the best way to do that is to buy PCIe capture card for Mac Pro and connect it that way. I was thinking of using either AJA KONA or Blackmagic DeckLink but I can’t find any info if I can preview...

    MP 7,1 MPX Radeon Pro VII Duo runs two XDRs fine … until I install a second graphics card? WTF?

    So, this is super, super weird. I've got a 2019 Mac Pro spec'd out with the Radeon Pro Vega II Duo (MPX module), and two Pro Display XDRs attached to the VII Duo via Thunderbolt 3. As officially supported, of course: Prior to purchasing this Mac Pro, I was using an eGPU (Sonnet Breakaway...

    MP 7,1 Pro Display XDR dirty screen effect

    Does any XDR owners have an issue with the dirty screen effect with Pro Display? I have nano-texture version. I notice it mainly when I’m scrolling content with the white/grey background. Should I return it and get a new one or is this as good as it gets?

    Temporary Display (Luna Display)

    My 7.1 is a week out and my Nano XDR display is 6 weeks out. Im trying to figure out what to use as a display for 5 weeks.

    MacBook Pro (2018/2019) + Apple's Pro Display XDR thru an eGPU in a Razer Core X eGPU

    Hi there, I'm wondering if I can drive an Apple's Pro Display XDR thru an eGPU (for example Radeon RX 5700 XT, Radeon VII) in a Razer Core X eGPU hooked to a MacBook Pro (for example the 2018, 6-core, 560X). In theory, Thunderbolt 3 supports resolutions up to 8K but I have some confusion in...

    Hi there, I'm wondering if I can drive an Apple's Pro Display XDR with a single Nvidia 2080 Ti hooked thru the Gigabyte Titan Ridge add-in card? I currently have two LG UltraFine 4K (2019) monitors working in this setup. Also, the video output for the nVidia card (see tech spec page) lists a...
