Mac OS X 10.7.3 Beta Drivers Reveal Evidence of New Mac Pros
Posted on December 4, 2011 by eli courey
Mac OS X 10.7.3 beta has been released and has a series of function names referencing the codename “Tahiti,” which is the codename for AMD’s upcoming 28nm desktop graphics cards. These graphics cards are due in January 2012, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple updated the Mac Pro models at the same time.
The new Tahiti series should end up with Radeon HD 7xxx branding and as it will come in XT and PRO flavours. It’s kind of safe to assume that Radeon HD 7970, codename Tahiti XT will be the fastest single chip card from AMD while the Radeon HD 7950 will be codename for the Tahiti PRO product.
