Windows 8 werkend op een Retina Display MacBook Pro [Images]

AnandTech heeft Windows 8 op een nieuwe Retina Display MacBook Pro geplaatst en is erin geslaagd de OS op de volledige 2880 x 1800 resolution te laten werken.

Jammer genoeg heeft de GeForce GT 650M nog steeds geen driver support onder Windows 7 en Windows 8.

Zelfs zonder deze Nvidia drivers, was ik instaat te voelen hoe de 2800x1800 resolutie op een traditionele desktop onder Windows 8 zou werken. Indien u zich nog het artikel herinnerd waarbij wij het hadden over scaling and display, zal u zich herinneren dat Apple geen ondersteuning bied voor een desktop resolutie hoger dan 1920x1200 onder OS X. Met het gedacht dat unscaled 2880 x 1800 gewoon te smal zou zijn voor een dekstop, icoon tekst en standaard UI elementen... Tekst is inderdaad zeer klein, maar ik vermoed dat mensen met een perfect zicht hier nog wel tevreden zullen zijn. Ik zou het zeer fijn vinden als Apple alsnog de keuzen zou bieden om een native resolutie optie te verzien onder OS X.

Hieronder alvast enkele screenshots van de nieuwe notebook onder Windows 8 in 2880x1800...

I can't wait for Windows 8!!! That looks great! I was never a fan of Mac OS, to mee it looks like it was created for apes. I do have a Macbook Pro because I like the way it looks but I run Win 7 on it, a much better combination. My question is why does apple release retina display if they don't even use the full resolution it offers?

im with you bro. I had a mac running bootcamp windows 7 for a long time. actually several macs... theres NO difference between macs and PCs. but one thing tho I want you to know... this will blow your mind!!!!. I thought I had the best of both worlds but what I noticed was when I switched back to a PC... (wait for it)... it was so much better! seriously. Window's works on a PC A LOOOOOOOOT better than on a MacBook. you can sense the lag on a MacBook and of course the battery drain. If you switch to a window's dedicated PC with similar specs like i5 2nd gen 4gb ram and even intel HD and you run windows on it... omg the difference is so nice. Mac's lag a little with windows bootcamp

Why would apple want to NOT stay where they are? Why would you want to leave being on top!

Macs are full of holes? Are you kidding me? A Windows pc is way more vulnerable than a Mac.

Between people shouting that everyone is gay, and the traditional "PCs are better", "No, Macs are way better" argument, there's not much being said here. The whole point of a retina display is that most of the pixels are invisible, so you only display enough for the image to make sense. But I can't imagine the PC display would look very good until MS customizes it to take advantage of the display, which I suspect won't happen until they come out with their own version of a retina display.

There's a reason why for the past few years mac numbers have been increasing 3x faster than windows and customer satisfaction is higher
