macOS 10.12 now uses Metal for GUI

Good news.

It’s not intel-only now.

On Nvidia (and most likely amd cards too) the GUI of macOS 10.12 now runs on top of metal, not OpenGL.

    […] qui s’allonge encore un peu plus ce matin avec la découverte du développeur Mac Netkas, qui s’est aperçu en fouillant le code de macOS Sierra que le vénérable OpenGL a laissé sa place aux APIs Metal […]

    This would explain the fact that some graphics cards,
    as NVIDIA GeForce Gt610 not work at 10.12?

    My NVIDIA 410m doesn´t work with MacOS Sierra… I supposed that Metal its the problem… Can I change Metal or OpenGL ?
