EVGA GeForce GTX 285 Mac EditionPosted on December 7th, 2009 No comments
EVGA’s GeForce GTX 285 Mac Edition is a wonderful piece perfectly ideal for the maximum enjoyment you look in video card up gradation. Upgrading in Mac anything other than hard drives or memory has been a ridiculous job. This is because most Mac machines use mobile CPUs which are soldered firmly on to the motherboards making it impossible to swap chips. This was true for upgrading Mac video cards as well. The process of upgrading has always been an envious task.
EVGA’s GeForce GTX 285 Mac Edition has given Mac users an amazing and handy GPU option to buy the video card upgrades from online vendors including Apple.com. Prior to the release of EVGA’s GeForce GTX 285 Mac Edition, the video card upgrades were from either NVIDIA or ATI and Apple did not support the upgrade market. It is a real worth move form the Apple.
Apple has come out lately with GPU releases which are better in handling the upgrading process. The Radeon HD 4870 and the 8800 GT are build-to-order the much wanted GPU options directly from Apple. Importantly now Apple officially supports conventional PC video cards helping the user to dump the ROM from the Mac and hack the PC cards to become Mac editions.
GeForce GTX 285 Mac Edition is a compact hardware just identical to what you get when you buy a PC card. The prime difference comes in the packaging and firmware. You can use these cards in the Mac Pro. Typically additional PCIe power connectors are not required in the standard video card in any Mac Pro. When you intend to upgrade to a more powerful video card, you may require one or two cables to connect the small PCIe power connectors on the Mac Pro’s motherboard and also to the connectors on the video card. All these required cables are in the GTX 285 Mac Edition box.
GTX 285 Mac Edition has major change in firmware. The firmware has a few EFI hooks to make your PC Video card to work under OS X. PC specific cards do not have EFI hooks. This will enable you to do Binging or Googling and to find ROM dumps suitable for other PC cards which can enable Mac operation. GeForce GTX 285 with firmware can be used without any modifications to POST and function under OS X.
The price is fixed at $449.99. It is bit high compared to other Video upgrading cards. But comparing the price of the hardware and the price for two extra cables Mac Edition Box has a moderate price. The box comes with a lone DVI to VGA adapter, a pair of power cables and a driver CD. It has two dual-link DVI outputs and has no support for mini-DisplayPort. In brief EVGA’s GeForce GTX 285 Mac Edition is worthy of buying it and is perfectly ideal for all Mac owners.
