Their talking about 3rd party graphic drivers , not sure if they are Mac compatible ?
But you can install those 3rd party graphics drivers on the Windows-Bootcamp partition, right? Let's say, NVidia or ATI comes up with an updated driver for the card. I assume this wouldn't affect the Mac-partition at all.
I would assume if the driver is NOT a firm ware update it should work . My question would be if it is a firm ware update say to graphic card instead a sofeware would it affect a mac when rebooting into OSX ?
IMHO, since the 'video/graphics' card is 'shared' by both OSes, it would. Also, all 'updated drivers' for the Windows-partition usually come via Apple's Bootcamp updates. BTW: I always thought that games looked better on the Windows-partition (running the same game on OS X and WinXP). But that may be purely 'subjective'...
Curious coffee buzz question, Sarge. Are Macs better now at CAD and 3D than they used to be? I worked for a multimedia shop 8ish years ago, and damn that stuff was beautiful but it was slooooowwwww. We only had a couple of PCs inhouse and they were so old and lame, they were barely functional for cross platform testing The guys that did the rendering were always really frustrated.
Never made much sense ~ The company had boucoux bucks and the boss hated Macs. (Turn over was so bad, the employee entrance was a revolving door.)
