30 Inch Displays Now Shipping
Various reader reports have announced that orders for the new 30" Apple Cinema Display and the corresponding required NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL graphics card are now shipping. The displays, announced along with the 20" & 23" counterparts in June, have been slow out of the gate due to production problems from NVIDIA in providing the required cards.
Also announced today is the new Mac-compliant x800 graphics card from ATI which is only the second card available on the market able to drive the new large-scale displays. One major difference in the two cards is the ATI card occupies only one slot, whereas the NVIDIA requires two due to its large cooling apparatus. Pricing for the new ATI card has not yet been announced.
