Apple issues Nvidia graphics update

By on January 27, 2009, 9:58 AM
Apple has released an Nvidia graphics update which, according to the release notes, is designed to improve cursor movement when using the Apple Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI adapter with the latest MacBook Air, MacBook, or MacBook Pro computers. Additionally, the 3.2MB update should also improve playback of HD video on the new unibody MacBook Pros with GeForce 9600M graphics cards, as well as older Mac systems using Nvidia’s GeForce 7300 GT chip – namely the original Mac Pro and late 2006 24-inch iMac model.

The patch comes amid complaints from some users who noticed video distortion when using the DisplayPort adapter with various Dell and Samsung displays. The Nvidia Graphics Update 2009 requires Mac OS X 10.5.6 and is available from either Apple’s website or through Software Update.

It failed to correct the problem. Failed miserably. Thus - pulled!!Count yourself very fortunate!You have that external display at college?? Wow!Apple? Why are you starting to look more and more like Micro$oft?Product Test? Product Evaluation? Sigh!All in the name of saving a wee bit of money. From Engineering straight onto the customer floor. Ahhh, problem? Frustrated and incensed customer?? Duh!Can little byte out of Apple afford this kind of Micro$oft like behavior? Seems to be the trend lately.I know! Lets let the customer test it for us!
