|Version of macOS|
macOS Ventura, or macOS 13, is a version of macOS, announced at WWDC on 6 June 2022.
It is the first version of macOS to not boot out of the box on CPUs without AVX2, first present in Intel's Haswell architecture, however pre-AVX2 support is still provided on Apple silicon installations for Rosetta 2. Ventura drops support for AMD's GCN 1-3 GPUs, as well as Intel Haswell, Broadwell, and Skylake integrated graphics.
The new version additionally introduces Metal 3, an upgraded low-overhead graphics API for Apple OSes. Intel HD 600, AMD Vega (GCN 5), and Apple M1 chips are cited as being the minimum required hardware to support Metal 3. AMD Polaris GPUs still function within the OS, but only support the Metal 2 feature set.
