Is it possible to upgrade the video card on my mini to something that supports Quartz Extreme?
One word: Nope, sry! Wait that's 2.
Well, technically "sry" isnt a word! I just wasted everyones time didn't I...... sry.....
Well you are allow one err a day.
Well, your Mac Mini already supports Quartz Extreme, which has been used for much of the 2D graphics eye-candy in OS X for a while. What it doesn't support is core-image, the latest and greatest rendering system that supports even more eye-candy. My guess is that in the next revision of minis they will put in the Radeon 9550, which supports core image.
Well played, well played.
If the Minis had a 9550 a month ago, I would have gotten one rather than my iBook. Then again, Apple doesn't want its "bargain" computer to steal business away from its more expensive ones.
well is it just not feasible to upgrade the video card? I mean _couldn't_ I simply yank out the 9200 and throw in a 9550?
It's probably easier to upgrade the engine in a FWD car to a v-10 viper motor.
THERE IS NO CARD ...
It's a chip soldered directly to the board, any replacement needs to be pin compatible -- or it'll be a major challenge.
The Mini also has tight space tolerances.
you beat me to it.
