While I am here, I was wondering what this update actually did?...It updates the graphics.

Seriously, though, it's just another maintenance release for OS X that this time fixes some specific video card/graphical issues.

Personally I've noticed a distinct performance improvement after installing this update whilst going in and out of spaces and exposť, and even iPhoto scrolls more smoothly through the events page, which is starting to get rather large.

I don't know what they've done, but I think it's worked on my 20" iMac 2.4GHz C2Duo.

This has not fixed the issue where WoW will periodically drop to about 25% of its regular frame rate :(

Having an issue with my macbook in as much that it didnt see the 10.5.2 update or the gfx update?
I had to do a manual 10.5.2 download and install :(
Is there any way to "reset" the software update?

I guess I will have to try and manually install the gfx update as well

You have a ATI or nVidia Card?

Spaces & exposť is definitely a lot faster.

I did notice a small WoW performance increase as well.

Intel GMA950

ATI Radeon 8500
ATI Radeon 9700

Lots of nvidia cards wrapped up in a small set of packages..

Nothing new on the current MacBook Pro's. Same NV drivers and OpenGL.
