GameAgent now tests for Mavericks compatibility though Mac Match feature
Aspyr has expanded the capabilities of its Mac Match feature to help customers find out if their machine will be able to run Mavericks, the upcoming OS X update set to release later this year. While normally used for determining if a computer will run games offered through GameAgent, the Aspyr team has pulled together information from around the web to create a "speculative profile of system requirements" for the new OS. To test a system simply load the Mavericks page on GameAgent and the Mac Match feature should automatically load the systems profile. If not, system specifics can be entered manually. Aspyr does note that the information they are using has not been officially confirmed and is subject to change at any time.
