The update doesn't fix the MacPro4,1 GTX 285's degraded performance introduced by 10.6.4.

Working fine after installing in 32bit mode (x32 bootflag) via software update.

How come though most of the time when I install updates (that affect kexts) in 64bit Mac panics on me.
When I install in 32bit all is ok.

Any idea lads?

Hi bud,

When repairing permissions in 32bit mode the 64bit install works fine so it wont post the panic anymore.

I do think it was related to IOstorage kext (or something) which is odd since this is not GFX related.

Personaly I think its a permissions issue with kexts within 64bit. Even running kext utility can panic my install. Again 32bit works fine.

Yep. An update has been released at the same link: Netkas' new patch for 4890/4870 x2 GPUs.
Works as advertised.

Updated here without problems, on the hacks some of my GL screen savers look better

on the Mac Book Pro the strange glitches are gone....

I am happy.

I seem to have gotten a boost in my GTX 285 stats, almost back to 10.6.3 level. I can actually play starcract II again and now I dont have to cripple the graphics, all ultra again.

"Still no 64-Bit for Geforce 7 series."

The 7 series are old now, even 9 series cards can be had on the cheap

Yeah sure, but 7 series were working in 64-Bit kernel mode up until 10.6.1.

Hmm, seems to be conflicting reports even with the same GFX card/mobo (same as I have).
Presumably I can just change my systems type to back MacPro3,1 to maintain the work around I have now?
Cheers

Is there any case in which this update should not be installed on a hackintosh?
I mean does this affect for example the edited strings in my com.apple.boot.plist which I need for my GTX260 to work?
I would really like to play Starcraft in better quality but first I want to make sure that I won't kill my system.

Many thanks
Herb

UPDATE:
I installed the Graphics Update without any problems (so far).
