Does it support 1080p (1920 x 1080) output with dvi to hdmi to plug it into my hdtv??
(sorry to steal your thread, hoping someone can answer both because I'm curious about both)
And does it support DX10?
I ran an external 24" 1920x1200 display off my gen1 macbook - you'll have no problem running high resolutions w/ this videocard.
Lots of yeses, but it won't do your taxes.
But with the proper OpenGL Shaders, it can make your taxes beautiful.
I've wondered this myself. However, can this card decode Blu ray? say, if I upgraded my DVD burner to a Blu ray drive in the future? I'm getting a 17" Macbook Pro. So it'll matter to me.
You don't need a special graphics card to decode blu-ray. It just accelerates it so your CPU doesn't have to do all the work. The following features probably only work in Windows Media Player unfortunately.
NVIDIA PureVideo® HD Technology
Dedicated on-chip video processor
High-definition H.264, VC-1, MPEG2 and WMV9 decode acceleration
Advanced spatial-temporal de-interlacing
Bad Edit Correction
Inverse telecine (2:2 and 3:2 pull-down correction)
Video color correction
Microsoft® Video Mixing Renderer (VMR) support
Can't wait to get my soon-coming MBP hooked up to my 52" DLP and 5.1 system. It will likely sit on my component shelf hooked up just like that most of the time when I don't have it out and about.
Can you download Windows media player for Mac? This may be a stupid question, i'm not a mac user just yet.
I don't believe they make it for Mac anymore (though I think they used to). Anywho, you can download Flip4Mac (which is free) which let's you play various windows media formats in quicktime and iTunes.
Use VLC it will play anything you throw at it.
Including those pesky MKVs.
And when VLC just isn't fast enough, compile MPlayer. Even my friend's PowerBook G4 could play 1080P WMVs with that.
Intersting... I can't play anything hd on my powerbook.
your processor is not fast enough!
If you compiled Mplayer yourself, you could play at least 720p and some 1080p movies.
MPlayer is brilliant! Glad to hear it works on Macs too.
Would you say MPlayer plays HD smoother than VLC?
Would I just use a regular adapter?
Thanks for answering this question. I was wondering, do I just need a simple DVI-D to Component adapter, or something more exotic?
I saw this one:
but it says it's designed with "ATI chipsets" in mind. I see plenty of DVI to Component adapters, and just wondered if that would do the trick. Thanks for the help.
