    Core Image-capable graphics cards include:



    ATI Mobility Radeon 9700

    ATI Radeon 9600 XT, 9800 XT, X800 XT

    I have been waiting for Tiger as well before getting a Mac mini. I wouldn't be surprised if they come out with a Rev. B mini in the next 2 weeks or so. I am going to be putting Tiger Server on mine anyways so I'm not that worried about it, but they still need to do something. I just wish professors would realize that today is a big day and cancel classes.

    OK, ONE LAST TIME:



    Your computer will support CoreImage, just that it won't use the GPU to do the processing, it will use the CPU. Everybody got that? Your iBook, Mini, iMac, PowerBook, G4 PowerMac, etc. will support CoreImage! Any Mac with a G4 or higher will support CoreImage! Don't make me repeat it 100 times!

    We know that. What we meant was that our GPU will not be able to handle CoreImage relegating more work to our CPU.



    I'll say it 100 more times, don't mess with da CoreImage! :P

    I was talking with the head of Mac's here on campus back 3 months ago and he told me we were suppose to have a special even on campus, hosted by Apple, whenever Tiger came out because of the mascots being the same....I'm going to talk to him today and find out for sure. So LSU, Auburn, & another colleges that have a tiger for a mascot ask around and see.

    Now, where is Quartz 2D Extreme? All I can find is Quartz Extreme, available already in Panther. I remember a video stream (from Apple) for developers, where there was a clear explanation of what Quartz 2D Extreme is exactly. Perhaps the answer is hidden here? If so, I don't see why Apple hides important OS features.



    Also, what happened to OpenGL 2? Tiger supports OpenGL 1.5. I had the impression that OpenGL 2 was coming with Tiger.

    Spotted video conference requirements part way down spec page, looks like none of Apples Laptops, emac, mini will be able to initiate a multiway video conference in Tiger!!!



    http://www.apple.com/macosx/techspecs/



    As follows:



    Video conferencing with iChat requires a compatible FireWire DV camera or web camera and broadband Internet access. One-to-one video conferencing requires a G5, G4 or 600MHz or faster G3 processor and 100-Kbps or faster broadband access. Initiating_a multiway video conference requires a G5 or dual 1GHz or faster G4 processor and_384-Kbps or faster broadband access. Participating in a multiway video conference and initiating a six-person multiway audio conference both require a G5, 1GHz G4 or dual 800MHz or faster G4 processor and 100-Kbps or faster broadband access.

    nVidia GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL, 6800 GT DDL




    If there is no typo in this list, then even the Radeon Mobility 9600 Powerbook will be unable to run Core Image/Video on GPU. If I remember well, the 9600 was initially included. Anyone knows what is going on here?

    Is that list just laptop cards or does it mean my Radeon 9000 Pro is out too?
