    I'm not sure, but typically Apple will bundle the drivers in the OS. If the card is newer than the latest OS, it will probably ship with the drivers but eventually those too would be bundled with the OS.

    Hmm, these support the Macbook Pro 330m....

    According to my mac, the latest Apple drivers are 1.6.24.17 (256.00.15f04), these are 256.01.00f03 - newer?

    Even more interesting, does this download contain the 330m binaries that will finally allow native overclocking of the GPU?

    It appears the 9400M is also supported by these drivers. I am testing now. Will report back.

    EDIT: nvm I just noticed these drivers are for the Mac Pro line only...

    Tried running the installer on my 8600m GT MBP and it says:

    "Unsupported System: This computer will not support this NVIDIA graphics solution."

    Would be great to see more aggressive graphics driver development for OS X, but this just seems to be for the new Quadro cards.

    I expect that these will be pushed to us MBP users after Apple has blessed them. :)

    Too bad when it clearly states the 330m is supported. I guess it keeps us Mac users from being our own worst enemies.
