    finally the card it should be thanks to Lion

    • Written by from Montreal

    I do a lot of 3D in Maya, Mudbox, and a bunch of other apps and reviewed this card when it was released under OS X 10.6. As others have pointed out, it was buggy and kernel panicked but OS X 10.7 fixed all the crashing issues and it's a rock now. The only drawback is the lack of OpenCL, which Apple (not Nvidia) is responsible for and they pulled it before Lion's release. Otherwise, performance is great (faster than Radeon 5870 for Maya and Mudbox from my benchmarks) and only uses one slot. Not as fast as the Radeon for games (in Parallels or Boot Camp) though. If you need CUDA or want a low-power card for 3D, it's easy to recommend now.

    good but you have to know what you're doing

    for all the whiners, take the time to learn and understand first. The best advice I can give is to not update the drivers. it is far too complicated for the average user if you make the mistake of clicking on the "update required" cuda box. I have one running on lion and snow leopard. it is a great boost for keying and exporting really fast. it is also required for davinci resolve or you would be stupid to use it without it.

    Just got this card installed yesterday, and I love it!!! Super quick in Premiere and After Effects. Just in one day, it's amazing how much time I have saved with rendering. This card will pay it's self off in no time!

    My only complaint, about the card is that there is only one display port hookup. On the PC version of this card, there are 2 display ports as well as one DVI hookup. Because of this, I could only hookup one of my 27" Cinema Displays. To work around this I left my old card in to run both of the displays.
