I'm right with you. EFI64 restricted graphics cards just reeks of a way to force a $3000 yearly subscription from pro users. I can't wait to see what inane "feature" they roll out next to break the current generation.

Probably, when they add SLI or CrossFire support they'd expect people to shell another $3K for it.

I am not sure that they ever will. Last I checked (a while a go), not even Linux supported it.

NVIDIA's Linux drivers do support SLI.

I honestly can't wait to see what creative marketing approach Apple takes if/when they adopt multi-GPU technologies.

Rest assured that even though it is based on previous tech and it will be a half assed and crippled re-implementation, it will be "revolutionary" and thanks to Apple now made "easy" for the masses. I am betting a "Grand Central Pro" moniker will be involved somehow...
