    Ok, i have heard that max mem in GMA 950 is 224mb but apple capped it to 64 to make MBP more appealing.

    So.. i undrestand that the 224mb is accessible in window$ but unaccesible in mac os x.
    That is prolly why games run better in windows > UB macosx

    So is there a hack to uncap this?

    Correct me if i am wrong in certain parts...

    The actual memory reserved is 80 MB under OS X. The Apple driver simply doesn't make use of larger buffer allocations.

    OS X does some interesting graphics buffering of its own, so it's not even really clear what a bigger buffer within the driver would accomplish.
