Wondering if you have a 27inch iMac if you are able to run EvE on a single client at maximum settings in Incarna or the latest TQ build?

Looking to buy the new iMac 27inch within the week!

First I got those randomly "blackscreen" before I enter login-screen, everything goes black but I can see and move my mouse cursor. Force-quit (cmd-opt-shift-esc) helps and restart EVE often works.


Exactly the same here, on an iMac 27. I have to restart up to 6-7 times before I get past the black screen mentioned. (But luckily no freezes!)

Anyone have feedback on how well the 6970M 1GB video card works?

They only have the 1GB GPU 27" iMac model at the Apple store -- I need to know if I should order & wait for the 2GB GPU, or if 1 is enough...

I've got the 1GB 6970M and it runs two clients with high settings great. It gets hot so I use SMC fan control to crank up the fans, but it's not sitting in my lap and I got three years to try and break this thing. :D

When I ordered one, It shipped a day or two after the order was placed. And you can get 2-day shipping. My iMac 27 came from Sacramento. But my last Macbook was custom built in China and still got to me within 6 days of ordering.

I think I am always going to end up special ordering. Not only for the better Video card but for ram and HD. I was lazy and bought Apple RAM. However, I certainly think the small extra money to get the 2 TB disk is a no brainer.

It's a few extra days on a machine you are going to have for 3 years and you get double the VRAM and double the disk. YMMV
