    So how do they know it will work in a Mac? Just because it is MXM it will work in a Mac? I see no other reference to apple or OS X in the article other than that bit in the specs. So I have no idea where they got that from if it is from NVIDIA or not.

    No clue, maybe it has EFI support. No word on drivers.

    I'm surprised it lists Mac compatibility on that page.

    That's very interesting. If that's rolled out as a standard or add-on spec in a reasonable period of time I would definitely consider the iMac. If an MBP is rolled out with that chipset, as long as they've cured the heat problems I'll definitely consider upgrading.

    Good find indeed. I wonder how acurate they are by listing Mac OSX as supported? but I just dont see Apple ever offering this card in any new product but if a user could use this in a iMac it sure would make it more attractive to the new buyer. Im still waiting for some brave soul to tear into the 24" imac and expose its guts. Cards like this gives hope that Apple could make a nice small consumer tower to fit between Mini and Macpro. If not at least the 2 foot iMac has growth potential something that Apple has allways tried to kill for sake of PowerMac sales.

    wow, that looks like an outrageously good card. I hope it really works in the 24" iMac.
