Headless Mac Video Accelerator
Don't settle for poor interface performance on your headless Mac.
Take back the full power of your GPU today.
Never settle for a choppy interface.
Mac mini and Mac Pro are both amazing machines, packing phenomenal power. They're fantastic when used as headless units for high-power, whisper-quiet home or professional servers. But even with the these outstanding capabilities, when either Mac is operated without a display attached, the GPU isn't activated, meaning it's not pulling its weight. So when you access your Mac remotely, the CPU does all the work rendering the user interface. The interface lags; OS X animation, cursor movement, menu navigation, and typing all suffer, making remote operations a pain.
Plug in. Restore Performance. Easy.
Now there's an easy NewerTech fix to make your remote experience smooth again. The Headless Mac Video Accelerator makes your headless Mac think it has an attached display. This loads the headless Mac's video drivers, activating its GPU and taking full advantage of its power, so your remote interface works perfectly – exactly how you'd expect. Plug in a Headless Mac Video Accelerator and get back to working smoothly on your headless Mac.
