I wonder how many users do we have with active Mac model prior "late 2013" (I am talking about models, which are "officially incompatible" with Mac OS v 11 and further.)

The question is because (at this stage, but the situation may change in future) Alpha 0.12 has minimal OS version set to 11 (Big Sur).

Also wonder if owners of those older Mac model will need any help with patched upgrade of their hardware to Mac OS v12 Monterey (actually easily searchable, but if you need - I have fully tested on MBP (early 2013 15' retina) step-by step guide. Maximum load in this model with running ESDR3 + DX found 58/30% CPU/GPU with current alpha.

I have a 2012 MBP with OS Catalina 10.15.7 and though this is not much help to you, I can confirm that ExpertSDR3 0.12 will not run on this MBP with this macOS.

Not a huge issue for me as I can still run ExpertSDR2 and I also run an iMac.

What I am saying - one of the Mac I am using for testing of ESDR3 is "late 2013 MBP", (currently running under OpenCore patched Monterey) - and it works.

I am doing some recording of the tests and I may post later the comparison of the load for ESDR3 running under "patched late 2013 MBP", 2020MBP and A1 MBP. (So far I do not see dramatic difference...)
