The first developer build of OS X 10.8.3 seeded last November added AMD Radeon 7000-series drivers, so it appears that the public release of the operating system update will include support for several high-end graphics options. Just yesterday, we noted that Sapphire was previewing its Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition graphics card at CeBIT.
Apple has not yet revealed when it will be releasing OS X 10.8.3 to the public, but we’ve heard that the latest build was distributed to company employees as a pre-release version, so it seems that its debut may be very close after over three months of developer testing.
Apple is expected to release a revamped Mac Pro sometime this year, although it is unclear exactly when the company is planning for the workstation to make its debut.
Isn’t the GTX690 faster than k5000?
In games, yes. In professional applications, no.
Nice, looking forward to the K5000 in my Mac Pro…
Anyone know anything about price and availability?
according to the article above its 2250$ and should be available now. damn that’s 1 expensive component.
Forget Mac Pro. Lets start with the official release of 10.8.3. Appleinsider stopped mentioning the betas because it has become an almost weekly occurrence with no indication of official release. It’s a joke.
Of all the things to get irked about, this just about takes the biscuit. What possible difference does it make to you whether they release 1 beta or 12, as long as it’s well tested before it’s released? And since when did Apple ever give you an indication of the official release date in advance?
