Two days ago it was still priceless and predictable, but today Apple released more details about the ATI Radeon HD 4870 Graphics Upgrade Kit, an update card for Macs Pro from the beginning of 2008 and for the recently announced ones this week.
Outside, it costs $ 350 and has availability for 5-7 weeks. Configuring one of the new Macs Pro itself with the card, the additional $ 200 only.
In addition to the ATI Radeon HD 4870 chipset with 512MB of GDDR5 memory (runs on the PCI Express 2.0 interface), it also includes a DVI port dual-link is a Mini DisplayPort, which means that even the next generation Mac Pro owners can connect one of the new 24-inch LED Cinema Displays.
Interestingly, the product specifications again show that Mac OS X 10.5.6 (and not 10.5.7) or higher is sufficient to run it.
