This has got me seriously contemplating a new Nvidia card. I'm currently using an Nvidia GT740 SC with my CustoMac. I'm not a gamer, but I would like to take advantage of my Cintiq's full 2560x1440 resolution with DisplayPort. A newer card would solve that. With the current card, I'm limited to 1920 x 1080. Which Nvidia model card would you recommend for someone like me who mostly does design / graphics work with Photoshop / Sketchbook Pro / Clip Studio Paint?

This is great news but it's almost a year later... kinda sucks. If Volta takes the same road then I don't know...

Try to look into the 1050/1060 cards. Or if you don't have a burning desire wait for Volta (20xx) which *could* be release in a couple months, then you can wait for a price drop on Pascal.

hi are you using cpu graphics along with your 1080.if so thats why iBooks works

I keep coming across people who say they've completely disabled the IGPU and still have working iBooks. I'm trying to figure out what the differentiating factor is; I suspect the software renderer has different capabilities on some CPUs vs others. Not enough data to come up with a real answer yet, though.

on my sky cpu if I use both cpu and gpu graphics I get iBooks to work but with just 1070 I get just a transparent window
