    I do believe this is the case.

    I just played some Nexuiz, a free FPS that is somewhat video-intensive.

    I have not run actual benchmarks, but the video performance is VASTLY IMPROVED.

    also, I looked at the actual drivers in the 10.5.7 and they do have updated version numbers...

    My overall video performance seems very much improved.

    any other pre-aluminum MacBook owners noticing the improvements?

    woah? seriously?

    im still hesitant to update. since everybody is having so much "problems" from post-installation

    anyways this is great. i can hope to have a little more ease in watching HD dvds on my macbook probably.

    perhaps i can run SC2? lol! i'll just leave that to my mainstream gaming PC

    actual driver number went from

    1.5.36 to 1.5.44

    I am not much of a gamer, but when I do feel like FPS'ing I play Nexuiz, and I tried it out tonight.

    I have never been able to run it well at my native screen resolution which is 1600X1200. Tonight I ran it at that and had the special effects set to normal. No lag at all....

    seems like a significant improvement in the video....

    I would like to hear others' impressions.....
