Apple Switching Back To NVDIA?
on Nov 22, 2011 at 1:30:03 pm

Granted, it's just a rumor and it doesn't address their desktop products.

But it could be interesting if in fact Apple decides to bring back NVIDIA. Specifically if they don't drop the Mac Pro.

If it is true, I wonder what would prompt Apple to bring NVDIA back into their products?

Let's not forget, there's been a changing of the guard.

Some things might (and certainly will) change.

This would be a big deal. OpenCL hasn't won (yet?), so getting CUDA back on Macs would be nice.

Perhaps it has been my posts about swapping back to Win7 to use CUDA with Adobe that has prompted this.

Seriously, why not embrace a powerful graphics card that daVinci, Adobe and AVID work best with. After all Mac hardware needs to be accessible to software other than FCPX.

This gave me a really good chuckle. If you have the power, please; preach, Michael, preach!

I don't know what the deal is. Tim Cook is a different sort of fella, though. We'll see what happens.

Nice! May I contact you with the list of other things I'd like you to post about?

I hope you only use this power for good...

Absolute power corrupts absolutely Walter. So although I will use my powers for good, that will only last a short time before degenerating into secretive self serving greed- just like Microsoft, Google and now Apple actually.

I have the 2011 MacBook Pro, but if next year's model has NVIDIA and especially the (rumored) USB 3.0 connections, I might have to upgrade.

Not that I'm partial to USB 3.0, just that I do a lot of footage dumping and if someone brings me a USB 3.0 drive I don't want to be hampered in getting footage on it.
