    im picking up a GTX480 in 4 hours

    What changes can I make to ATY_Init need to include Fermi? Your extension has worked so well, I hate to try another.

    My Mac Pro is a 1,1….will be fitting justice if first Fermi on real Mac is a 1,1

    I hope Fermi never get into (official) Macs…

    @Peter, why should Nvidia make a driver if Fermi does not get to offical Macs

    I guess this means new Mac Pro’s will be released in the somewhat near future?

    F**k, I’ve bet on the wrong horse… and Apple too.

    I think NVidia simply add support for all it’s graphics chips, so there is no any mean for Mac Pro with GTX 4XX in near future, maybe later they make Quadro or Tesla series CUDA accelerator, original Geforce Fermi card is useless in Mac, it’s even have fewer texture controllers in comparison with older GTX 285.

    Open CL not working, and reported to have lower performance than GTX 285. I would hold off on buying a GTX 4XX if its just going to be for Mac OS. I bet the new Mac Pro updates are right around the corner with the six core intel cpu

    Так у ферми судя по тестам производительность opelcl сногсшебенная. Да и к тому же аплевский аналогог виндодозного dxva (не помню названия) поддерживает ндидия чипы….

    Неткас это я к тому, что лучше брать сейчас evergreen или fermi?

    Мне не очень нравится как мой радик 4870 работает. Плохо с моим монитором дружит (приходится держать переходник dvi>vga в первом разъеме для того чтобы мышь не дергалась) Эта проблема и на макпро есть.

    не ясно что брать. хочется nvidia 480 взять, сейчас стоит radion 4890 на 10.6.3 на natit-e. если дрова есть то значит оно будет бутиться с EFI?

    What latest driver? There are no drivers for 460 on nvidia site and osx, only 285
