Apple has posted a graphics update that improves stability and performance related to graphics in Snow Leopard. The update lists a few specific games and applications that can expect to see improvements. Those are Portal, Team Fortress 2, StarCraft II and Apple’s own Aperture 3.
Here are the bullet points contained in the update description from Software Update:
- address frame rate issues occurring in Portal and Team Fortress 2 on certain Macs
- resolve an issue that could cause Aperture 3 or StarCraft II to unexpectedly quit or become unresponsive
