Boot Camp 1.3 beta updates graphics drivers

Apple's Boot Camp 1.3 beta

Apple today released the latest test version of its "Boot Camp" software that allows Intel-based Macs to run Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Vista natively by simply rebooting the system. Industry watchers say that the potential for Mac users to run Microsoft Windows at speeds as fast or even faster than other PCs could drive up sales of Apple hardware, and may spur widespread adoption of Macs in the enterprise market which predominantly requires Windows-only software. Boot Camp 1.3 beta includes updated graphics drivers, support for MacBook Pro keyboard backlighting, Apple Remote pairing capability, and improved international keyboard support. The update also offers an improved Boot Camp driver installer, localization fixes, and provides improved Windows Help for Boot Camp. Apple has promised to include a final release of Boot Camp with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, which is slated for shipment in October of this year.

    Updated graphics drivers?

    In Vista my videocard drivers are still from August of 06 for my x1600. Trying to install new ones doesn't work for some reason so I have to use desktop video card drivers. Might go back to XP if they can't figure out the problem sometime soon.
