This is really simple and the CPU, GPU, etc. are irrelevant. I noticed that the newer citra builds on mac have an installer that requires an administrator password which makes it impossible for some of us to use. How can I get the latest citra builds without the admin password? Note that the less recent Citra builds do not require this.
On the downloads page there is an option to download manual builds. You can download the OSX package there via Github.
This isn’t recommended as it’s only a snapshot and will not automatically update your installation as new updates come out.
