I hope this helps people with flickering displays.
It's strange, I have yet to apply the last firmware fix since I wasn't experiencing any problems so that is listed in Software Update as:
27-inch iMac Graphics Firmware Update Version 1.0
Then, the new one just released under that is:
27-inch iMac Display Update Version 1.0
So the new one appears to be a firmware update for the panel itself.
Yeah, I do plan to do so eventually but like you I've seen the benchmarks and don't feel the burning need to go out and do so right away. The 2 slots are empty and waiting for whenever I want to take the plunge.Hmmm. You seem to have resisted bumping the memory in your I7 to eight gigs...I have, too, even though doing so is only $100. The few benchmarks I have seen don't seem to show a substantial improvement in much of anything.
As mentioned above, if this update is not appearing in Software Update for you then your iMac shipped with it already applied.I assume software update would show this if I needed it? I got my replacement 27" i7 today and software update it not showing needing any firmware updates.
I would and did. It's a firmware update for the graphics card.I have a week 50 iMac (27' i7) and it is running beautifully with no flickering or yellowing. Should I risk upsetting the delicate balance of things and apply this update?
Thanks for the advice.
Yeah, the yellowing problem has been solved. Apple already sent me my blue-tinged glasses.This means Apple is accelerating the solutions to the problems (flickering and yellowing), and I am happy with it cause I am holding to order one through the AppleOnline (I am waiting for more than 2 months in a reseller) until some definitive solution is held, especially for the yellowing, which I hope will be in 2\3 weeks, as Apple said it that internal memo.
