1 Testing only. When using a Mac with a switchable graphics card, make sure to deselect the “Automatic graphics switching” option in the “Energy Saver” or “Battery” preference pane or window.

2 Please consult the graphics card vendor or Apple for more information regarding the compatibility of your graphics card.

Although it is possible to operate some Macs without a display attached to the graphics card, we strongly recommend attaching a simple HDMI display emulator or an EDID/DDC emulator such as the Lindy EDID/DDC Emulator (when using a KVM system) on the Mac running Just Out.
