New Radeon 5xxx/6xxx driver In ML DP3

In ML DP3 instead of


we now has


which (according to its Info.plist) support radeon 5xxx family and 6xxx family.

But if you look inside of it. it supports more:


We had signs of this new driver coming in previous versions of ATIRadeonX3000.kext, and now its here !

7xxx series will not work just yet, as it needs FrameBuffer driver first, and this is just accelerator (provides OpenGL&co acceleration)

    Hope that HD 6770 and HD 6750 will be supported OOB.

    Does this make 6950 to work?

    Does this mean that using these (or rather updating to ML in due time) could solve my “cannot get 3x 30″ monitors” (2xDVI + 1xDP)” to work on a Sapphire 5770 issue?

    At this point it doesn’t work, and after years i’m actually considering abandoning this scene/the mac.

    Great work as always!

    DP3 made my NVIDIA 560 card kind of freak out. Forturnately I was able to install DP2 over it and it was OK again.

    Anychance of porting these kexts down to lion or snow? To get fully working 6950/70? I currently have it partially working things to your “native package” but things like chess freeze

    I looked into /S/L/E of Dp3 but Amdacclerator kext isn’t there. However, it is in the installed partition. How then one would edit the kext prior to installation?

    I want the kext about AMD Radeon HD 6300M

    I’ve managed to fix the “problem”.
    The problem is that i’ve used DVI Input from my monitor i changed to VGA Input, that’s all fixed all my mouse bugs related.

    Is there any solution for ATI 5730?

    The ATI 5730 card works, but when start the system with PCIRootUID=1, i haven’t graphic acceleration and poor resolution (1152 or 1024).

    If start the system with PCIRootUID=0, i have black screen in my LCD. System works fine, but LCD is always in black. Now, if i connect HDMI output to another monitor or Tv, i have full resolution and perfect graphic acceleration on it while my LDC is in black.

    Have you a solution for it?

    Thanks in advance
