Open discussion on Macs & graphics cards

(Relating to all the OSX Mac, graphics cards and bootcamp blogs)

 

If "Solidworks" wanted to get a real estimate of the OSX market then surely releasing "windows os" graphics card drivers that were specifically for iMac & Powerbook graphics cards running in bootcamp would do the trick? Even if they were unofficial slightly glitchy beta releases or didn't perform quite as well as the professional cards, people would still download the drivers and try them out.

 

I'm oblivious to the technical difficulties but as there are only a limited number of graphics cards in use in iMacs and Powerbooks which use intel processors, the ordeal wouldn't be so bad.... would it? It would also reach out further than a petition and it'd be easier than designing an OSX native version of Solidworks.

Fat chance they'll ever provide support for this though
