    Not good news for people like me on the unsupported Fermi cards (550ti). There goes my budget again!

    No new drivers, no southern islands, so no tahiti

    I managed to run my Radeon HD7770 in vga mode, using the mac mini profile made the trick, I also using a HD4000.

    I created this thread, maybe this is a solution for people with HD7xxx series.

    How about the 10.8.2 update? I have heard the drivers are updated.

    Yep, the AMD + Nvidia drivers got updated each 10.8.2 dev build.
    But i think nothing real new compared to 10.8.1.
    I , 9600 GT and an other user with 258 GTX has major probs with some OPenGL games and Unique Heaven benchmark or RAGE (game) . OpenGL channel exeptions, which freeze that bench/game.
    Other benches like OpenGLExtensionsViewer + some other games run well.
    We discuss that problem here:

    Have you also noticed that the 9800GT has some vertical lines on some shades of colours since 10.7.x?!

    After installing the latest NVidia Drivers they are almost gone, ite better but not perfect.
