Over the course of the last two days, Apple has seeded two bug fixes for developers using OS X Mavericks Preview 3, which was first released on Monday. The first minor update, pushed yesterday, was aimed at updating the OS X Recovery function.

Today's small update resolves an issue that causes a Mac running Mavericks Developer 3 preview to reboot without warning. Both updates are available via the Mac App Store.

OS X Mavericks introduces a number of significant changes to the operating system, including a tabbed finder, full screen dual monitor capabilities, and Safari improvements. Mavericks is expected to be released in this fall after regular updates to the beta software.

It's still a beta … and that's one old graphics card.

Yes and yes, but Mountain Lion is not in beta, and the card is supposed to be supported.

That's the problem. It's just slowing down and acting up. Just like any component of an older machine.

I am waiting with bated breath for your explanation of how electronics slow down with age. Does the electron flow break off bits and pieces creating a sludge buildup inside which gums up the works? Is it from the magic smoke slowly leaking out?

I dont know that "hardware slows down as it ages"

It may be less effective than newer hardware at the task at hand but it dosent get tired.

As far as older hardware heating thermal limits because of dissapated thermal compound. Thats a different and fixable issue.
