    Just seen the updated macbook pro 15'' w/ a AMD Radeon R9 M370X with 2GB GDDR5 memory

    Was hoping it would be a Maxwell GPU. Does this mean OS X won't have Maxwell Drovers inbuilt????

    Apple could still surprise us with Quadro nMP options at WWDC!

    Well, not really.
    Our best bet is that this issue gets too noisy to ignore at some point:

    But I don't expect them willing to spare an engineer or two to update the native Nvidia drivers. They're too busy working on new ways to input emojis.

    Web drivers work fine. Would just be nice to be able to update to newer OS versions without having to wait on Nvidia or resorting to hacks.
