10.8.2 update for new macs

Apple posted Mountain Lion update for new macs (new imac, macmini, 13″ rmbp), which was shipped with custom 10.8.1.

The update is 10.8.2 with very fresh video drivers.

Nvidia drivers – 304.10.20f04

AMD drivers has acceleration support for 7xxx series (in amdRadeonAccelerator.kext), but no framebuffer driver for these cards.

P.S. no good news for 6970.

    Does that mean that 7xxx series can now run but without graphics acceleration?

    But good news for the 7xxx series owners or future buyers !

    I hope a native driver for any 78xx or 79xx like the legendary 6870 to make a update in my hackintosh !

    These drivers’ features seems to be already on the 304.00.05 (not 304.00.00f10) driver for 10.8.2 scripts.
    Trying to use the actual drivers on a gtx 680 @customized bios-level hackpro4,1 gave me that NVDAPreset was unknown, after a “NVDAStartup: Official” output (didn’t try to edit matches, i don’t think we have a difference for good on this with 304.10.00, so i just returned to 304.00.05f10).
    That remembers me the old times of drivers available while in tests (example: VIA ATA on 10.4.3 to 10.4.4) that became locked/unavailable afterwards.
    Sometimes it seems that the workers inside apple likes us, but maybe their bosses doesn’t.
    And it seems that “nVidia pokes Apple” on that one.
    Shall Reatail drivers continue here to stay!

    PS: sorry for “double commenting” but it seemed pertinent to both last blog entries. Feel free to moderate.

    Tried with both AMD 7770 and AMD 7970, both came up with “no Kext Loaded”

    Not there yet.
