    They have to to write drivers just for Apple. A default installation of Mac OS X does not have X11.

    Translating the bullshit , AMD was much cheaper and we went with them , sure we could've went with Nvidia and enable some Cuda bullshit for some Adobe video edititing software and maybe even Final Cut Pro but who cares when we can have the cheap AMD/ATI deal.
    Because of the obvious thing Apple do i will never ever buy something from them , not even an iphone.

    They wont use their CPU's but the stupid f%$&ers will use their GPU's.

    Man I hate that company and everything it stands for.

    I wish AMD would have told them to get screwed

    This is exactly what AMD needed. This will be the push to get this into an actual profit margin this half. I look forward to the reports.

    wow, i never know there are people that will blindly hate apple, its their choice to use overpriced hardware, so please don't bash AMD for being chosen by apple to be used in their hardware, instead we must thank them because ati can overcharge them and earn more profit so amd can have more money for their RnD
