There's nothing we can't argue about on the FCPX COW Forum

Poor Nvidia. Don't they know that Apple doesn't really make a computer this can be installed in anymore? ;-)

It's good news that they are releasing this one and the Quadro 5000 based on PCIe 2.0
This should give current MacPro users even more time to replace their gigs
You know, for the future transition to PC :)

I appreciate that EVGA builds dedicated OSX cards now.
Have good experience with regular cards in MacPro.

I'm curious why EVGA decided to bring the 2GB version instead the 4GB.

With the last OSX update Apple drop the OpenCL-restriction.

I do wonder if this isn't just badge engineering again. Nvidia cards are made to a reference design, so that it's very likely that any "Mac" card is just the same as all the others inside. What the company are doing about drivers - which is what matters - isn't clear, as they don't offer OSX drivers on their site, as far as I can see. Do FreeBSD driver work on a Mac, now that the operating system shares much with OSX -

Since Lion, Apple have added continuously drivers for most actual of-the-shelf
cards, so for the GTX 680. So drivers aren't the problem!

The only benefit of a dedicated OSX-card is You'll get a start-up screen;
of-the-shelf cards stay black until desktop appears, due to Mac UFI.

I made good experience with an of-the-shelf EVGA's GTX570 in a MacPro.

Best regards,
Bernhard
