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.

    Hi net kas. Thanks a lot for your work.
    What about OpenCl on 6970 ?

    What about 69xx in 10.7.3b? Any changes?

    Hi I noticed the NV100 kext was changed, the OpenCL “Hack” on Driver.bundle is no longer working, any new info on getting OpenCL back with 10.7.3b drivers.

    November 20th, 2011 | 4:15 pm

    Thats mean we cant never use OpenCL on our 6970 and 6950 Cards!

    How on earth do you arrive at that conclusion Telepati?

    I don’t think we’ll see a new Mac Pro soon. I’d assume the next devices with AMD 7000 cards will be a new iMac (with slightly modified design) and Macbook Pro in march/april.

    @toshy Especially that they write about Tahiti and the Hi End processors that have never been installed in iMac. The only possibility for Tahiti or 79xx series is the Mac Pro. Mobile 7900 Series will not be based on the core of Tahiti.

    It’s neat and encouraging! But according to the recent articles from MacRumors, Apple is going back to bed with NVidia(http://www.macrumors.com/2011/11/21/apple-switching-back-to-nvidia-for-next-generation-macbook-pro-graphics-chips/).
    The article may have insinuated something about the possible future of Mac Pro for all this to make any sense. I wish Apple would just open up to both ATI and NVidia to allow them the opportunity to make drivers available on the entire line up. If users choose to use any one of the boards not sanctioned by Apple, so be it.

    Tahiti are the high end GPUs – they are equivalent to Cayman (6950 & 6970) … so YEAH MAC PRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    just as I hoped (and still do) it seems that Apple will release new Mac Pro with Sandy Bridge-E and AMD HD 7XXX in 1Q 2012 :D

    *hope I’ll have the money for it by then XDDD

    tdt1025, the source on that report was Semiaccurate. Worse yet, it was Charlie Demerjian, who is notoriously full of it. As in Woodstock port-o-john full of it. I wouldn’t trust that guy to scoop shit in a literal sense. I sure as hell don’t trust him to do it in a journalistic sense. Apple will go with whoever can give them the best bang for the buck in the next MBP.

    “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.”

    I’m new to this but want to get my 6990 working in my hackintosh build. What’s the device id of the 6990? Is this easy to do using Multibeast? Thanks….
