Tucker28 posted a topic in nVidiaHi, After a few days, I got 10.8.4 installed and running on my GA-EP45-UD3P v1.6 FB with a Q6600 CPU. All is fine except one thing. Audio is working, speedstep is working, power management is working, and the graphics card is working fine until I launch WoW, at least it's working good enough for me not to notice an issue. In Windows 7 on this same machine, this PC gets in the high 80's and 90's while running on Ultra. But when I run WoW on OSX, Ultra gets 1 frame every few seconds. The menu lists it as 1 fps, but it would be more accurate to say 0.25 fps or lower. Bringing it down to fair only gets me up to the teens on fps, and low teens at that. When I had this machine set up with Snow Leopard, this same card sailed through WoW at over 100fps on Ultra. So, I know I missed something on this install. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Scott
Been a while since me and a pal managed to turn a couple of dell mini 9s into leopard netbooks and then kill them with 10.5.8 and thus it's so good to see there is still a thriving community here ... hoping you can help me Does anyone know if your group's nvidia webdriver updater will successfully flash the ROM in the non-approved (by Apple!) 8800 GTS (the GT was approved, but not the GTS) - so it will work in a mac pro 3,1 with El Capitan ? (by 'work' I mean 100% fully work - not just login screen but all boot screen options) May seem an odd thing to do but amongst my other projects keeping this behemoth (3,1 intel xeon 8 core 8GB RAM 2008/9) mac pro with bootcamp running as something more than just a home NAS (4x4TB drives in the bays) and file server is high up my list and I am never going to be able to stump up the cash for an apple $$$ approved card Things I think I know, but suspect some folk here will have found a way around or know better; 1) without flashing, I will never get the options at boot, or be able to see SUDO or recovery options 2) I can use screen sharing / VNC viewer / Vine to remote into the mac at the login screen, and use startup disk prefs to switch between bootcamp and OSX, but not OSX DVDs on an external DVD over USB 3) I have been pointed at netkas but they seem to be down currently ... and when last up appear to be focused on flashing just the high end newer PC gaming cards (1GB VRAM and up) - this 8800 GTS is just a 320mb) Any info will be much appreciated, hate binning kit like this .... cheers Andy
