    I won't know until September 1st but I'll be surprised if it is anything less than fantastic.
    I am very happy with it right now under 10.5. SL's got to be better.

    I thought you had to solder on a new ROM chip to be able to flash it - something only The Rominator has been able to accomplish.

    I have SL and the 285 Mac Edition...it works fine for me...but I haven't done anything fancy with it. If you need me to check something let me know...but you'll probably have to give me brief instructions on what to do.

    Yes the 285 works from boot (AKA drivers come with SL).

    SL works fine with Mac GTX 285 and OpenCL behaving too. I am trying it with several other cards. Right now a Mac 285+Mac Quadro 4800 playing nicely and OpenCL reports three devices: two GPUs and a CPU pair. (I had a PC 285 working under an earlier seed with injector, and expect that to be OK. )

    What is not clear is whether the power management bug is fixed - the 285 still seems reluctant to go into its fastest mode, but I have not go to the bottom of it yet.

    According to a report on www.xlr8yourmac.com, Sims 3 is finally working correctly with GTX 285s in Snow Leopard.
