Mac Pro 6.1 (late 2013) Trash can or Cylinder Mac

Recommended Posts

Mac Pro 6.1 (2013) This computer has 2 Graphics cards or boards know as A & B - What I want to know is can one be upgraded without upgrading the other - or - Are A & B a matching pairs like the Mac Pro Memory. Also if anyone else in Pattaya June/July 2020 who has spare parts for this machine Please let me know. At the moment mine is down, also if you have any combination of a Mac Pro 2013 you would like to sell (working or not) at a resonable S/H price let me know.

Most likely they need to be matched and the D500 is going to be the best.

I’m well aware of the machine. No GPU removal required, you just need the correct OS Version to support the eGPU. From the information replacing the internal GPU/s is not efficient as they have a reputation of frying themselves and being slow compared to an external Solution.

To back up what Sometimewoodworker posted, I did a quick google search to find the following upgrade guide:

The entire blog post is helpful, but you're interested in the eGPU writeup
