Why is there no updates to graphics card on macs
 
I was wondering why there is never any updates to the graphics card drivers on my machine?
I have had this computer about a year and a half now and have never see any graphics updates with the software updates. Graphics companies usually release updated display drivers and better engines almost monthly and was wondering why this doesn't come through in updates

Given the "all-in-one" nature of Macs (you buy a complete product & let Apple worry about the details)...maybe these graphics card updates or improvements are bundled in some way with the updates that come from Apple via "Software Update".

There have been a few graphic driver updates with the point updates over the years that I have seen. in other words by Point updates 10.4.1 10.4.2 ETC.

ATI Radeon sure do release drivers for OS upgrades. See this link:-

Graphics Drivers & Software

Scroll down to MAC and see updates for later operating systems. Apple then bring these out in Software Updates from time to time.
