    Now that imacs have 130m GTs, I wonder how long before better GPUs in the mbps. Videocard lifespans are pretty short.

    This fall or in 2010. I'm leaning toward 2010.

    Q3 2010 (August 2010 to be precise)
    Lots of magical things are going to be released from Apple in August 2010.

    Apple's going quantum.

    Arrandale = Q4 09 so Apple who usually adopts processors 1 year later should be picking it up around Q4 2010.

    Apple always seem to adopt stuff super early or super late. Very annoying...

    the 130m GT is basically the same 9600m GT that is in the current MBP. Nvidia just renames their GPU's to make them seem new.

    9650M GT

    Then again the difference there is just clock speed over the 9600M GT. I don't expect any major updates anytime soon with Intel slowing things down and changing roadmaps due to the recession, etc.

    Seeming the current 9600GT is downclocked due to overheating maybe Apple should work on better cooling so we can run current cards at the correct speed before looking at adding even faster cards?

    I don't know if anyone has seen, but the 9400m is actually faster then the baseline dedicated card that the last models had (according to Apple specs)

    Not for me.. I'm just going to clock it back to what it should be. If it blows up Apple will be getting me a new one. :)

    Good luck getting them to think it's still under warranty..

    And how exactly would they be able to tell I'd clocked it back to the DEFAULT settings?
