Apple patches DisplayPort

Apple has released NVIDIA Graphics Update 2009 v1.0 aimed at addressing problems with the new Mini DisplayPort Dual-Link DVI adapter close . The update "improves cursor movement" on Mini DisplayPort enabled MacBook Air, MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks. Apple says the patch also improves playback of HD video running on systems with NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT or 9600M graphics chips.

The move comes amid complaints from some users who noticed video distortion when using the DisplayPort adapter with various Dell displays and occasionally with Apple's 30-inch Cinema Display.

The 3.2MB update requires Mac OS X 10.5.6 and is available from Apple's website or through Software Update.

    Mine is fine

    My 30" Cinema, never had a problem with HD video or not with my 17" MBP. It just works faster than with my old G5 tower.
