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...

Windows 8 has been compared to Windows WINDOWS folks lol. That's right, it's not even worthy of a comparison to Vista. haha... Anywhooo, I *would* like a WSXGA+ (1680x1050) or even WUXGA (1920x1200) pixel-quadroupled for your Retina viewing pleasure @ 3840x2400 to use the latter example. Even on a 15.4". I used to be a Windows man and granted, I'm probably one of a comparatively speaking small number of super geeks and I'm not anti-Windows. You guys are just braindead, though. Your attacks on OSX are baseless and why is it that "PC" manufacturers try so hard to copy Apple (right down to the retail PACKAGING LOL) and then scream foul this loud? You freaks make "real" Windows people look bad. You can't face the fact that Microsoft is basically done. In the longterm I mean. The de-Windows-ization began 2 years ago and is now entering an accelerated phase. You guys are like flies when they know they're going to die and go nuts. That's right, folks. It's dyin' tiiiiiime......woohoo.....

What if I told you...that comments are for uncommon wisdom and insight that supplement the article, not a forum for you to whine incessantly about total bullshit. Nobody cares if you prefer Windows.

There sure is. Because there is no shortage of people in the world who are two stupid and inexperienced to manage their own computing experience and need something like OSX and Apple to Hold their hands.. OSX users a are on the whole not very computer savvy. PC users run the full spectrum. From novice to super geek.

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
