    reason


    ..Apple had determined that it was not quite ripe enough to be put up for mass release.

    So then..

    I shouldn't update it then? I haven't yet, so I guess I'm glad I didn't.

    The public definitely was not RIPE enough for this update

    For Frimware updates

    It is always better to wait, until the public tests it...you don't want to s**** up your computer. It is easy to make a small mistake that can grow into a big problem.

    They will fix the problems and repost it soon probably.

    geForceTi4 update?

    I'm sorry to hear this. I guess the updater had a few bugs, eh?

    What I'd like to see is an update for the geForceTi4 card I shelled top dollar for. The sucker only gets 19 FPS on average in the UT2k4 demo, while my ATI- using friends are getting 30 FPS with slower CPUs and weaker ATI cards. Apple and nVidia didn't increase their credibility with me by selling me a 128 MB vid card that doesn't do squat.

    Needless to say, my PC- using pals are getting 100+ FPS, but if I wanted a PC I'd have bought one by now.

    Yeah.

    OS X was not quite RIPE enough for this update. Let it get a bit more RIPE and it will reappear.

    ripe

    Is this ripe thing somekind of bad inside joke?

    GeForce4 Ti

    I second that update request! since its a card Apple no longer uses, I doubt we'll see an update any time soon… Unless 10.3.3 with its reported framerate gains fixes this.
