The Metal API is supported only on Nvidia Kepler based cards (GTX 6xx) or later. The GT710 is based on the Kepler chip so supposedly it should support Metal. I don't have it and so can't confirm.

If you are a developer why don't you just test one out with Mojave beta ?

I do not have the opportunity to take such a video card, try it, and then, in case of inability return it. That's why I'm asking Hackintosh masters about it...

Metal works ok on Geforce710 1GB, I have one of it.

It cost me $50 U.S.D.

I have graphical overlapping only one one app called Xojo, but I think that Its a Mojave's Issue

Mojave not working with OpenGL/OpenCL now.
Most apps optimized for OpenGL\OpenCL and olny some for Metal. That why first time Mojave will a bit laggy...
