    I'm hearing rumblings of issues with 10.6.3 and those of us with Mac Pro 1,1 models with the 7300 GT. Anyone notice anything performance wise?

    I started this thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=896327
    Because I've been having occasional Dock crashes since 10.6.3. Could these be related to Apple hindering the 7300 GT?

    In this Apple discussion: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2382458&tstart=0
    People are noticing lower benchmark scores.

    And here: http://www.accelerateyourmac.com/archives/apr10/040710.html
    They are noticing issues as well.

    Just curious if anyone else is having issues. Do people think this could be resolved in a future update.....or should I start looking to put this thing up on Craig's List :D

    I chucked the 7300 GT back in last night and haven't had any issues yet. :)

    Likely have nothing to do with my 7300 GT in the Mac Pro, since I get these errors on the MacBook as well.

    Obviously the only reason I'm even looking at these logs is because I have had the Dock crash a few times and that's what had me keeping an eye out in the Console.

    I have noticed the above errors message are typically harmless and happen throughout the day. I haven't been able to narrow them down completely and I'm not sure if they have anything to do with the Dock crashes.

    I don't use my MacBook primarily, so it's difficult to test, but I'm guessing something is up with Spaces in 10.6.3 to cause these errors.

    @Mackilroy - Thanks again for taking the time to check your 7300 GT!
