Apparently there's a whole bunch of driver problems with the Geforce 8800 Legacy Mac Pro edition.

Here's a quote from Marcel Bresink, developer of Hardware Monitor.
Quote:
I will now get such a card for further testing. This is cheaper as this kind of
remote analysis. It will also be helpful when taking action against Apple.

There are many other significant issues with the card's drivers. I have indications
of a security hole which could crash the entire system.

Thanks for your feedback. I will keep you informed.



I'm going to have to give the card a bad review.

I got graphical corruption the very first time I played EVE after installing it.

No news to me...Evil or Very Mad (Almost) no graphical glitches (in EVE) with the old card, tons with the 8800. Every 20-22 hours a system freeze with the 8800, none with the old one (7300 GT). Etc. etc.Confused

My Nvidia 8600M GT works like a charm when playing WoW (70-120fps).

Get the full range of problems in Eve and on jumping into a room the fps drops to single digits.

So what do Blizzard know that CCP/ Transgaming don't?

I remain hopeful that the reason the devs are being so slow to give us premium is because they want to reveal that they've secretly done the whole thing in OpenGL.

...I can dream. Get off me.
