Updating nvidia drivers on macbook pro
I decided to try and squeeze some more power out of the 650M by downloading NVidia's display driver, rather than using the OS X version.
New in Release 3.35f01: Release Notes Archive: This driver update is for Mac Pro 5,1 (2010), Mac Pro 4,1 (2009) and Mac Pro 3,1 (2008) users.
The latter seems more plausible to me, but either is just speculation.
The end result, though, is that there are rarely issues with Apple graphics drivers & regular software or games; again speculation, but for games I imagine they write to a pre-defined rule-set, rather than try to constantly be pushing the boundaries.
I don't know how to update Nvidia graphic card drivers on Mac Book Pro Retina.
I have been a Windows user and a gamer for a long time where we expect frequent driver updates.
My expectations revolve around whether Nvidia releases graphic driver updates for Mac and how to check for pending updates. I tried to make this more about one-question-per-question.
