    I have a MacBook Pro Retina (Mid-2012) and I'm currently on holiday in the Dominican Republic. Today, I was doing work on my computer while it was plugged in, and I reached over to unplug it and touched the metal bit on the charger. I wasn't shocked, but I felt a "fizzing" sensation that...

It might have been slightly moist, but I don't...

    Mac Pro PassThrough Efi Boot Output Fermi etc. 4Mojave

    I am not an engineer, nor programmer but a possible scenario for Mac Pro GPU support in 10.14 could be a PCI/Passthrough solution of MAC-EFI/GraphicsCard to second GPU/Metal/supportedDevice port output (without Mac Efi), maybe AMD Vega only which are officially supported in eGPU configurations...

    The Mac Pro 4,1 & 5,1 have plenty of PCIe AUX power, unless you need more than 300 watts for your GPU(s). Remember you get 75 watts from the PCIe slot. Each PCIe AUX 6 pin connector in the Mac Pro towers delivers 150 watts. Yes all three power pins in both of the PCIe AUX plugs are connected...
