    I've spent some time searching the interweb with regards to whether Dirt4 will run on my cMP 12-core Xeon X5680.

    The specs say the game requires a 1.8Ghz Intel Core i5 processor or better.

    My cMP (4,1>5,1) is 12-core X5680 (check my sig for other specs), so this isn't an i-Series CPU. Are my dual Xeon X5680s still good enough to play this game? Is there microarchitecture specific to the i-Series CPUs that the Xeons don't have that are essential for this game to play/run on a Mac?

    I can't run Northgard at all under macOS. But Northgard does run perfectly when I boot into Win10Pro on my cMP. Heaps of people are also experiencing this same problem and have posted faults on Steam, however the developer has not come out with a fix nor provided any information as to why it doesn't work on some Macs. I don't want to run into the same problem if I purchase Dirt4.

    It works fine for me on a 4.1 flashed to 5.1 with X5675s and RX580 running 10.14.5.
