No problems to report, as yet, on a 2.4 GHz iMac Intel Core Duo.

Only 6 more Macs to update.

My WoW BETA got VERY slow after this update. I actually had to dial it down from Ultra to High with my GeForce 8800 GT (3.2 8 core). Haven't tested SC2 yet, but will. I think it's encouraging that Apple is spending cycles trying to improve gaming. It is a huge reason why people buy their top end machines.

This update definitely improved performance in StarCraft II. I had to put SC2 on LOW just so that its playable. After the update, I set it to MEDIUM and it is working very well.

I have a 2006 Mac Pro 2.66 GHz with an NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT and 8 GB RAM.

Running very nicely on a quad core iMac with Radeon HD4850. No instability issues whatsoever. HL2 performance much improved - very smooth and zippy graphics at maximum resolution. It's a ripper.

This update has caused me HUGE instability issues. First a scrambled screen on first startup. Then multiple hard freezes. Seems around AIM but I'm not 100% sure of the culprit yet. Be aware and don't install yet!
