Default Re: Worth replacing 2008 Mac Pro for upgraded 2010 Mac Pro?

Apple Insider website say this about Metal;
"In order to run the new macOS Mojave, Macs must have graphics hardware capable of supporting Metal, Apple's modern low-level, low-overhead software that provides access to graphics processing."
If you plan on staying on PT9 and Lion I guess it won't matter, but if you ever intend to upgrade to the newest OS (and Pro Tools) then it is a consideration.
You can always upgrade your graphics card later of course.
5,1 Mac Pro, 3.46 GHz Six Core Xeon, 48gb ram, Pro Tools Ultimate 2019.5, HD Native card, Avid 96io interface, Avid 192io, Intensity Pro video card, Radeon HD 7970 graphics card, Mac OS X 10.13.6
