If you have a Power Mac G4 that you purchased this year and the system came equipped with a video card built around Nvidia’s GeForce2 MX chip, you may be interested in a new driver update available from Apple’s servers.
According to Apple, the driver update installs new graphics card firmware and also installs new Mac OS 9 system drivers that improve performance and applications compatibility. The new firmware itself is designed to fix a problem between older firmware and newer system extensions.
The installer will only update the GeForce2 MX card’s firmware if an older version appears.
A GeForce2 MX-equipped graphics card is standard on several newer Power Mac G4 models released since January. If you have a 533MHz, 667MHz, or 773MHz Power Mac G4, it’s likely you have the GeForce2 MX-equipped graphics card. You can find out for sure by opening the Apple System Profiler application included with your Mac.
