Misc Mac Known Issues (ongoing)
  • GeForce 9400 + USB Headset Performance Issues
    For those who don't remember this issue, USB headset on Macs with a GeForce 9400 can cause performance issues.

    If you are using a GeForce 9400 and a USB headset, basically combining the 2 will result into a drastic drop in performance in all OpenGL applications. This is a hardware bug with Mac OS X. Non-USB headsets are fine.

  • MacBook Pro owners with a GeForce 9400M and 9600M GT, please make sure that you are using the GeForce 9600M GT.
  • Non-Macbook Pros can unplug the USB headset to restore any post performance due to the hardware bug.
