    Yeah, that's normal. Apple has its own special drivers so no, you can't get a mac version (to my knowledge).

    Apple uses its own drivers for OS X, so the features you mentioned are not accessible, since Apple doesn't let its users at them

    You mean Apple doesn't expose certain settings. That doesn't mean features are inaccessible, to the OS or software. Of course OS X games can use antialiasing.

    I have seen Intel's software on Windows and it seemed like a bunch of pointless crap to me. Just a bunch of settings so Intel could pretend that they were adding value with their software. It's one of the first things I hide/disable when using a Windows computer.
