Apple: Video Card Compatibility List For Mac Pro
2:27 PM | Evan Holt | 14 comments

Recently Apple has unleashed a new Mac Pro and the option of the new NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT (as BTO and as a stand-alone upgrade). This has caught the eye of many previous generation Mac Pro owners, hoping to upgrade from their GeForce 7300 GTs or Radeon X1900 XTs.

Rob-Art from Barefeats was one of the first to bring to light the matter that the new 8800 GT would not work in a previous generation Mac Pro. This has recently also been followed up in a tech bulletin from Apple themselves confirming this.

Graphics cards shipped with Mac Pro (Early 2008) computers
ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600
All of these cards are only compatible with the family of computers with which they shipped.
Follow the link below to Apple's bulletin, or to Barefeat's online petition in hopes to have Apple address this matter to bring the 8800 GT to all Mac Pros.
