Power Mac G5 Compatibility

Supported CPU Models & Requirements

PCI vs. AGP Graphics Support

Pro Tools 6 systems are not supported with G3 processors or PCI Graphics G4 models, only the AGP graphics models.

PowerBook CardBus PCI Expansion

Cardbus chassis are currently not supported with Pro Tools 6 and Pro Tools|24 systems.

Dual Processor Support

Pro Tools 6 is fully compatible with Apple dual-processor G4 models running Mac OS X. There is no need to install any additional software. Dual-processor users will experience increased performance over the single-processor CPUs.

System Software

Mac OS 10.2.6 or 10.2.8 Required

Pro Tools|24 systems are not officially qualified on Mac OS 10.3 "Panther"

Total System RAM Requirements

  • 384 MB minimum, 512 or higher recommended
  • More RAM increases overall system and Pro Tools performance
  • 512 MB RAM or higher suggested for sessions with high edit density and extensive use of plug-ins
  • Options like MachineControl and DigiTranslator 2.0 will also require additional RAM
  • OS X does not require minimum or preferred RAM settings for Pro Tools as RAM is dynamically allocated

Note: In Pro Tools 6.0.x, the maximum allowable RAM was 1.5 GB. MDD G4 models with 2.0 GB would cause a "NeoAccess Error" and Pro Tools would not boot unless some RAM was removed. This issue is solved in Pro Tools 6.1 and higher. Answerbase Details
