Mac Pro (2012) or Windows machine

Hi guys,

I’m looking at switching from my 2014 MacBook Pro to a tower PC to work with Unreal (just running the Matinee project grinds my laptop to a halt)

So my question is…

Would a 2012 Mac Pro 5,1 (12 Core) with 32 or 64gb RAM + high spec graphic card be a good machine to invest in, or would I be better off spending my money a similar spec’d Windows machine with more recent components.

Are there any compatability issues with Unreal and older components or is there and ‘industry standard’ OS to work with in development?

Many thanks
