that this is the currently the "ultimate" MacMini for me.
It came with 10.5.8 and I am questioning if 10.6 would give me more advantages
or should I stay with 10.5 ?
The machine is REALLY fast. The integreated nvidia-graphis is so much faster then
the GMA950 and has lot's! of features that the former native cards from ATI did
not have. The water-shaders in AOE3 are corretc (GMA950/9200/x600pro) they are not
supported. Halo has all effects and Doom3/Quake4/Prey are all running great with
high details at 1024x768 (native on 15" Eizo).
There is no way to get control over the GPU. (vsync/AF) there is no "nvidia-displays"
and I can't find a driver for 10.5, all I can find are some CUDA-Drivers, but I think
these are not normal drivers that I will get any benefit from.
Therefore mostly all games, especially games with Doom3-engine have lots! of tearing
wich is VERY ugly.
Any chance of getting rid of that?
Some guys told be the intel HD4000 of the 2012+ Mini is even better then my 9400m.
I think I will have a look.
I love those small an reliable machines from apple.
god.. i wish apple could have just spend 15 billion to devour EA games and popsnizzle and start publishing games themselves instead mac user are stuck with ancient games like quake 4 and doom 3 which isnt even available anymore from the mac app store /..................
