A new update was released today for june 2012 macbook pro'ss/air's. Is anyone else hoping for gaming improvements/improved nvidia drivers? I just updated but havent had a chance to test anything yet. I would also be interested in seeing if battery life improved at all.

    I have been having issues with Power Nap not completely working (I think).  Does anyone know if this update fixes that?

    I installed this update this morning on my MBP Retina and it seems to have broken VMWare Fusion - I am running Ubuntu 12.10 32bit as a Guest - Fusion crashes on bootup resulting in the following error:Screen Shot 2012-11-09 at 13.31.45.png

    I will be raising a support request with VMWare.

    if you have a time machine backup, try rolling the update back just incase.  Also, id try to create a fresh vmware just to make sure.

    Thanks - A good idea to restore from Time Machine - Unfortunately I do not have one. I have tried creating a fresh VM - This has similar issues. I will try another OS (Win XP) and also a reinstall of Fusion.

    Could this update do anything to the color settings? I swear my 15" MacBook Retina looks more washed out after the update. Can I undo it via time machine?

    Arif,

     

    I cannot foresee that a re-install of VMfusion will rectify your problems,  It must be on the virtual machine level and if creating a fresh VM has the same problem then only a rollback could test the theory that the update broke the VM. 

     

    PS:  After applying the 2.0 update by parallels Windows 7 VM functions normally and has received no improvement in the graphics performance inside the VM.

    System Requirements 

    • OS X 10.7.4

     

    I must imagine they forgot to add OS X 10.7.4 or later.

    I am probably being silly. i dunno.

  • elsattar Level 1 Level 1

    does this update apply to the 13-inch rMBP as well?

  • dbainbridge Level 1 Level 1

    I saw no issues resuming a Windows Vista VM using VMWare (5.0.1) on my 15" rMBP after installing this update.

  • StuartOnline Level 1 Level 1

    I just did the update to 2.0. Well to my surprise my USB 3 devices are slower now.  One of my USB 3 external hard drives is the WD My Passport 1TB for Mac (portable). Before the update I averaged  117 MB/s read/write now I am only getting 70 MB/s for read/write acording to BlackMagic. I am running on a MacBook Pro Retina Display 2.6 i7 with 16 GB Ram. So it looks to me the improvement went down not up. Go figure.

  • joafromblaricum Level 1 Level 1

    Didn't really notice anything faster or slower after the update.

    BUT: my mbp with 8gb ram now only seems to have 384mb vram for the hd 4000 (down from 512mb).

    On another forum someone said his mba with 4gb ram has gone up to 512mb after updating.

    Don't know what to think but it's definitely strange.
