Sneak peak into future amd cards

According to the opensource 7xx0 linux drivers part that AMD released today, we will see mobile amd videocards based on pitcairn (78×0) and cape verde (77×0) video cards.

Maybe for new imac ? 😀

Also, the codename of graphics core of trinity apu is gonna be ARUBA, and it’s gonna be VLIW4 just like Cayman with devid range 0x9900-0x990f and 0x9990-0x9994.

Updated IOPCIFamily for Mountain Lion

It’s an old IOPCIFamily upgraded to work with new AppleACPIPlatform and Mountain Lion, as I described ealier.

Updated it to fix missing symbols for dp2 wifi drivers and applethunderbolt kexts.

Mountain Lion DP2 drops 32-bit kernel support

The kernel and most kexts is 64-bit only now, only few kexts left with 32-bit partm like ati and nvidia framebuffer, ACPIPlatform and appleHDA. full list here –

Old mac users (with 64-bit cpus buts 32-bit efi) may try to run ML on their macs using chameleon (forum thread about it) or try to use DP1’s kernel and Extensions folder.
