    Hey Guys,

    Has anyone else experienced a graphics improvement with OS 10.5.5, My Macbook is driving two screens and i don't even have a jitter when it comes to animations. Before only driving one screen i would have all sorts of jittering and choppy performance, but now it's great, working beautifully.

    They probably re-wrote the drivers for the Intel Integrated chipsets.

    That goes without saying.

    I gotta say that if you're noticing any improvements that's great. The only thing I noticed with 10.5.5 is that my battery seems to run out quicker :p

    Really, It seems this is kind of like the iPhone it either works well or doesn't. I think apple has too much on there on plate right now!

    Mine has had nothing but improvements since the update.

    This is what I get from glxgears:

    7949 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1589.800 FPS

    :D I know, glxgears isn't a good benchmark...

    Does anyone have any graphics benchmarks before 10.5.5. and after?
