    So, I'd say there is about a 25% chance we'll see it on Macs around New Year, about a 25% chance it will be later than that, and about a 49% chance there will never be a Mac version of this particular GPU. Very exciting...

    More like a year if they're feeling generous towards Mac users. ;) Otherwise, NCH. :p

    The 3870 and 4870 were both released for Macs. I would be surprised if the trend DIDNT follow for the 5870.

    Hopefully, it will. But it will take awhile as usual. ;)

    That is actually ok.
    Apple can keep their overprices stuff and rest of us can flash a pc version of it for half the price.
    Nowadays I feel happy when I dont have to give apple my money.

    Well done,:apple:.

    Netkas and Rominator will almost certainly tackle that one shortly after it ships. :D
