Quartz Extreme compatibility

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I'm sure this has been asked earlier, but rather than search, I'd rather just start a new thread. Here's my question:

I have a PowerBook G4 550MHz with a Radeon Mobility 4x AGP and 16MB VRAM. Is this machine compatible with Quartz Extreme?

    There is no official word regarding your question, since QE isn't complete yet.

    From Apple's Mac OS X page:

    ATI: any AGP Radeon card. 32MB VRAM recommended for optimum performance.

    anyone who says it is does not know for sure. right now the general opinion is that it will be supported but until Apple officially says it I still have doubts.

    they also have not said the new iBook is QE compliant either where as they made a big deal of that for the new Powerbooks.

    we'll see but I think it will be
