View Full Version : Is the 5870 worth buying on a new Mac Pro?

I was reading today that people were having problems with the 5870 in 2.93 Mac Pros. The 5770 actually faired better. Was this a driver problem? Has it been fixed? Thinking about ordering a new 3.06 Pro with the 5870.

That's what I'm running. I haven't noticed a problem but it's the only card I'm running on that machine so I don't have any basis to compare it to. (BTW: I'm also still running Snow Leopard on this machine for Rosetta, so if it's a Lion issue I wouldn't know about that since I only boot into Lion occasionally at the moment for testing.)
