It's a preview release and I expect that support for more GPUs will come later. Personally I want HD4870 support
In order words, Apple only had itself to blame for poor flash performance all along.
Finally my CPU is lightly used by Flash. First time in ages (ever since I moved to Mac) I don't hear the fan go WWWWWHHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR when I started using Youtube.
Really? Can you give us rough CPU usage comparisons before and after the beta?
I'm considering getting on of the new MBP 13's to replace my aging Macbook, and one of my biggest beefs is with the flash performance.
Does adobe get a pass on older systems? This fix is not going to work for any of the five macs that I have... When are they going to just plain ol' fix flash?
I usually don't have issues with well made flash pages (other than typical flash is stupid issues... load screens? come on people) I have serious issues with all these poorly made flash ads (and the system to deliver them) that locks up safari for up to ten minutes at a time. This is why i love the app store (and apple making hardware ad software) and why a free-for-all environment leads to issues.
That's actually Apple's fault, the only GPU's Apple has written GPU acceleration drivers for were the three listed above.AFAIK, the 9600M GT isn't supported. Dumbass move to be honest. It you have a MBP, you need to switch to the lower 9400M just to get hardware playback.
