Nvidia released new drivers on 9/9/10.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/quadro-macosx-256.00.05a23-driver.html

 Hopeful for better GTX480 support I downloaded and installed.

It says they are for 5,1 only but of course I thought that was standard flack.

WRONGO !!!

Rebooted to screens made up of large blocks of the colours present on my desktop. Not useful.

Remote login showed an all white screen.

Reinstalling SL Graphics Update fixed but Fermi still slow.

Oh well.

Apparently 5,1 needs these or GTX285 won't play nice with CUDA / Mercury engine.

I hope we aren't moving to Windows world where there are a multitude of drivers at any given moment for different Board Id's, etc.
