Question:
What have you done to your product to account for the differences in the Mac platform and PC platform?

Answer:
The boards are essential the same except for the addition of the Apple Display Connector, which is a special connector for Apple's Cinema displays. Another key differentiator is the software driver. Both the Macintosh and PC boards use the same GeForce2 MX GPU. The GeForce2 MX GPU is based on the GeForce2 architecture, which was designed with the Apple Macintosh platform in mind. In order to support Macintosh, we had to add support for the Macintosh color space, bi-endian support for non-Intel processor architectures, and support for some Macintosh video functionality to the GeForce2 architecture.
