    Those who have installed High Sierra on their Cylindrical Mac Pro, how is the performance compared to Sierra?

    I have a production computer that I use Logic on. I don’t use any iCloud or such features on it, and I’ll probably keep it locked on Sierra if High Sierra slows things down.

    Thanks!

    If you rely on your production machine, check everything you currently use is known to work in High Sierra. If it’s essential that the machine is up and running, rule of thumb is to wait to 10.x.2 to upgrade.

    If Sierra works nice why to upgrade? Wait as said 'till 10.x.2 or .3 (i prefer .4).

    I own a production machine for FCPX, DaVinci, 3D and photography and probably I will upgrade my nMp on 10.x.4 if no issue will be discovered.

    No problems here on a 6-core. Rendering feels faster, filesystem feels slower, on par with Sierra in total

    Yeah, I def never go in before a .2 release on such a system. About upgrading at all, I guess equal parts the geek in me and hoping for more refined performance. Hoping High Sierra is to Sierra what snow leopard was to leopard.

    Cool. Then hoping the GUI of Logic may feel a little snappier. How does the filesystem feel slower to you though?

    Make sure all your production hardware/plugins/etc are compatible with High Sierra before upgrading.

    High Sierra is mostly "under the hood" stuff for graphics, the file system, etc. You'll notice that files copy instantly now, among other things.
