Signs of early radeon 7xxx support in ATI drivers

As you might have heard, Tahiti is a nickname for next amd video cards, probably 79×0.

And guess what, there is some info about it in 10.7.3 beta drivers, in ATIRadeonX3000.kext:

(a result of nm ‘./ATIRadeonX3000 | c++filt | grep Tahiti’ command)
Its a functions names from driver.
So, what is it, just usual early support for future cards, or Apple is testing this card with future Macpro ?

And btw, 6990 works in osx with patched drivers for 6970, just add your dev-id(of master card) into x3000.kext and ati6000Controller.kext’s info plists.

    @Peter:
    Device ID for the 6990 = 671D.
    See also: http://forum.netkas.org/index.php/topic,1117.180.html

    I only have my 6990 working with the native package method in the article above with GraphicsEnabler=No, so max resolution is 1920×1440 (10MB) and slow.

    Would love to see it working, because it’s not that simple.
