EVGA Launches GeForce GTX 680 Mac Edition

Though EVGA's new GeForce GTX 680 Mac Edition is advertised as offering "brand new, never before seen features," it is virtually identical to Nvidia's reference GTX 680 graphics card. Aside from including the company's in-house cooling design, it can only cite software comparability as a notable feature.

As the name suggests, the GTX 680 Mac Edition is intended for Early 2008 (or later) Mac Pro computers and has out-of-the-box support for Mac OS X v10.8.3 and Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 via Apple Boot Camp.

    Do any GOOD games run on MAC, yet? What's the point?

    "Hey look at Sapphire and their 7970! We should do the same..."


    My prediction:

    "Hm, what if we release a limited edition GTX Titan for the Macs as well?..."

    Or just buy the PC version sans boot screen (EFI) and save a bundle. Kepler cards are supported out of the box.

    Should have released GTX Titan instead, while charging 10 times the price.
