MWSF: Mac GeForce2 MX FAQ, Picture
2:22 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

XLR8YourMac has posted a detailed FAQ and picture of the GeForce2 MX that were provided by nVidia PR guru, Brian Burke. If his name sounds familiar, yes, he did formerly work for 3dfx. The FAQ covers some general questions about the GeForce2 MX that is included in the new Power Mac G4s, as well as API, DVD, and MacOS X support. Here is a snippet from the FAQ:

Question: Do you plan to continue to support Apple products with your future GPUs?
Answer: Yes. NVIDIA is committed to the Apple market, and we believe that this is the first step in a long and mutually beneficial relationship.


Question: What Macintosh - APIs or Mac specific applications will be supported/accelerated by your drivers?

Answer: For desktop and 2D, QuickDraw is accelerated. For video and multimedia, QuickTime will be accelerated. For 3D RAVE and Apple OpenGL will be accelerated.

Although the release of a Macintosh version of the GeForce2 MX was expected by many people, this development is still very exciting. NVIDIA is a solid and stable company and seems to be commited to bringing their future products to the Macintosh.
