It works, but not as well as claimed

Advanced graphics cards for Mac Pro computers are hard to come by, due to complications in the way MacPro computers interact with the graphics card during the boot process. Almost identical cards configured for Windows / Linux computers won't work in the Mac Pro without some low-level reprogramming because of this.

So this card is a welcome rarity.

It is expensive, but when up and running is very very much faster than the alternatives available right now. Some OS X apps are written to use operating system calls that can offload processing onto compatible graphics cards, and this card supports such use - so lots of things go faster with this card installed.

However the card itself is not as compatible as it claims - in fact it is not obviously better than a 'reprogrammed' windows version of the card (much cheaper). If you skilled enough to do this, it is probably a better thing to do (spend the money you save on other toys). But otherwise, this is not a bad alternative...

  • Overall 4*
  • Ease of use 5*
  • Value for money 3*
