Re: Importance of Video Cards?

actually, it sound like you don't need to flash the 560ti or 580. after darby's post, did a little searching and found several mentions of this, and they all said that the cards worked in a mac without flashing.

as darby mentioned, you do need to have lion and the latest driver from nvidia.

the only note that is that there will be no video output from the card as you are booting. this is probably due to the rom not being for osx, so there's no video until the software (driver) is loaded.

i talked to rob morgan at barefeats.com briefly about this, he is planning on having a 580 in house today and will update his cs6 ray-tracing benchmark when he has the results.

the 580 has about 2x the cores as the quadro 4000 or gtx285, so i'll be interested in his results. hopefully he'll also detail any issues he encounters with the set up.
