278Graphics card frustration and 1.1.1 - new member
- May 7, 2006Hi everyone. I joined the group today so hello.
I've no doubt the subject of this post has been dealt with a lot but I
thought I would add my voice to the chorus of frustration.
I have had a dual core G5 for 5 months and the lack of PCI express
upgrade graphics cards is behond a joke. At the time I bought the G5
(bought in part to run Aperture) the 6600 card was on the recommended
specification list (now removed) so the 7800GT didn't seem necessary. I
did opt for the 256mb version of the 6600 for a bit more future
proofing than the 128mb version.
I am aware of the strangedogs flashed 7800GT but I am in the UK and
don't see why I should take the risk given that it is up to Apple to
sort this issue out. Also I have heard that 1.1 wasn't really optimised
for the 7800GT anyway. Any better in 1.1.1?
I would like to know what people's experience is with the 1.1.1
upgrade. If anything it seems slower adjusting than 1.1. I have a Canon
5D and shoot exclusively raw.
I have a dual 2.0 G5 with 3GB memory. Aperture main library is on
second internal hard drive.
Thanks for looking.
