Apple Just as everyone suspected, Apple updated its various lines of desktop computers today, bringing speed and performance improvements across the board. Mac Pro, iMac, and the Mac Mini were all upgraded, and especially for the Mini, it was a long time coming. The Mac Pro sees the most changes.

What is that Geforce GT120... It's not even listed on Wikipedia... Is it any good?

It's also called the 9500 GT. NVIDIA started rebranding their cards, I think.

I think the specs listed are wrong for the top-end PowerMac, too -- I think that Xeon 550 is supposed to be 3.26 GHZ, not 2.26.

2.26 is correct.

8400 GS = Geforce 9300 = G100
8600 GT = Geforce 9500 = GT120
8800 GS = Geforce 9600 = GT130
8800 GT = Geforce 9800 = GT240
8800 GTS = Geforce 9800+ = GT250

it is the bottom of the modern graphics barrel, and it is an insult to mac users that apple would lowball them so hard on such a high end workstation. that card cant even attempt some of the high end processing that a slightly better CHEAP card can, because it is missing some features. 9500gt is what poor people with bad htpcs bought when they wanted to play world of warcraft a bit faster LAST YEAR.

insulting to the high end workstation that might want to attempt fully featured dxva decoding or cuda processing

but they probably get away with it because the people who buy them don't know or care

I guess that would still be better than the aging radeon x1600 that is in my current iMac...
