Is anyone else running AC22 on a MAC PRO 2010/2012 5.1? If so what is the configuration, what is the video card, and are you experiencing any problems.

I have a MAC PRO 5.1 that runs AC21 fine, however I am having numerous issues with partial freezes, tool lock ups and delays when trying to run AC22.

Would appreciate any suggestions or comments.

MAC PRO MID 2012
PROCESSOR 2x 3.46 6- Core Intel Xeon
MEMORY  128GB
GRAPHICS  NAVIDA GeForce GTX 780 3072 MB

OS High Siera 10.13.6

I use AC20, 21, 22 without any problem (never crash or graphic bug)
I use C4D too without any bug

My MacPro still runs ArchiCAD quite well and it has slower processors that yours, though the last version I installed was 21. I've also got an nvme drive in my MacPro, but in all honesty for general desktop use the SATA SSD is perfectly fine.

I've also installed an RX 580 gfx card which really makes a big difference to to AC working environment. My RX 580 is currently in my linux box with the GTX 680 in my Mac Pro.
