    Anyone used one under OS X? Not interested in boot camping, just curious. Where can I find some MacOS demos?

    Thanks

    I've got a DK2 but I've not used it for over a year now. If memory serves me correct, I think it was pretty rubbish when running OS X. As for OS X demos? The sites I used to use are all dead now it seems so I can't really help with demo links. Alas, when I used it last it was almost always via Boot Camp.

    I knew development had stopped a while back, but even the demos are difficult to track down. Getting the hardware basically for free, so thought I might tinker with it.

    Forgot I had an old (circa 2011) SuperMicro server floating around in storage. I installed a couple of upgrades and here's how it sits now:

    - quad core xeon (3.1GHz)
    - 8GB
    - 260GB SSD
    - 3TB HDs in RAID 5
    - 802.11ac wifi
    - sound blaster card
    - GTX 1070 founders edition
    - Saitek X56 HOTAS
    - HTC Vive
    - wireless headphones

    As the cMP folks can attest, this old thing FLIES. Even on a 4k monitor WoW and other casual games can be run maxed out. And the VR games.... holy cow it's really neat.

    Such a shame nMP cannot do this without major fiddling about.
