    I just installed a Radeon 3870 to replace the GeForce 7300 that I was using after my X1900 died.

    Now, the ATi Displays control panel reports 'Unknown ATi Graphics', and I can't access all the nice antialiasing features. And I can't see anything on the ATi website about an update...does anyone know if it's still available?

    My SketchUp models look like crap. :(

    The X1900 was the last card supported.

    Oddly enough, an Intel friendly UB got written, and then support stopped.

    You should pester the ATI folks...especially if you have bought legit, retail ATI Mac cards. I doubt they'll do anything but you never know.

    Cheers, Romi --

    Yep, legit ATi Mac Retail card... Apparently, it's because of the AMD takeover of ATi -- Apple's in bed with intel, so AMD decided to make their products **** on MacOS X.:mad:

    Noticed that the last MacOS version listed on ATi's website is 10.4.x?

    There's a way of accessing the AA features using some OpenGL tools in the Developer utilities. Anyone got any details?
