Default Re: PT HDX Cheese Grater roll call

I wish I could justify the cost of the brand new Mac Pro but that sort of investment doesn't make any sense given my current business model.

The way my studio is set up the computer is in a separate equipment room in the back of my control room so purchasing a newer iMac doesn't really work.

I do have a second cheese grater chassis in case my power supply goes or some other replaceable component like RAM. I am very intrigued by Apple's new M1 chip and I'm looking forward to seeing how that new architecture develops over the next year or so. If they put a better chip than the current M1 in a Mac Mini that might do the trick.

So despite the fact that I still don't have thunderbolt and I would like to move up an operating system or two I think the smart thing to do for me is to sit tight.

Great to stumble onto this tread.
Still running 10.13 on an upgraded 4,1(to 5,1) cheese grater, with HDX PT2020.11. Running still fine.
I'm looking to update to Mojave, but then I'll need a new graphics card.
What graphic card do you guys recommend? Most cards I find need two power connectors and I have only 1 available since HDX takes the other one.
Or do you have a workaround for that?

I have the MSI Gaming Radeon RX 560 128-bit 4GB GDDR5.

Works fine but you lose the boot screen.

All Mac Pro 5.1 cheesegraters here. All HDX2 with an USB3 card taking the third slot. Working on external SSD's. We are going to stick with these untill HDX is obsolete for us. Next step is upgrading the graphic cards for cheap non mac RX560x570/580 cards and that will be the last upgrade for these old trusty machines.
