Geforce 8800GT/GTS (g92) and 8600 works !

It works with 10.5.2

but u can use 10.5.2 nvidia kexts in 10.5.1, so will have little gui glitches

    damn i wished i waited a bit to be able to find a 8800 GT instead i took a 3870, argh!
    Netkas, man, you definitely rock!

  3. December 22nd, 2007 | 4:48 pm

    Wow, nice! Do you need PC EFI for this to work, or does NVinject do the trick with these new kexts?

    Nice news. Anyone who knows when 10.4.2 will be released?

    Could you give us the nvcap value of the nvinject used?

    The REL question is: is Apple Motion more stable with these drivers (new kexts) anf the g80?, right now motion freezees computer when its stressed..

    OMG!… the 8600GTS worked.

    Will 8600GT works?

  8. December 22nd, 2007 | 6:57 pm

    @Thrawnex, it doesn’t matter much, using NVCAP from NVinject 0.1.7 works fine here with 8600GT
    Previous drivers were just not good for anything else than MacBook Pro !

    Hey Netkas

    What about you going sell t-shirt with something like “Netkas is an efi-jedi” or something fill in.

    I would buy one.

    8800 GTS also works with 10.5.1 with nvinject 0.1.5

    even natit or nvinject will work
    the trick is at the new 10.5.2 kexts and opengl.framework
    i think that with natit the driver is faster
    at least that’s what xbench says and i noticed the differece myshelf in video editing

    I have a nvidia geforce go 8600 M 512 MB in my laptop and I can’t seem to get it to work. I installed all the 10.5.2 nvidia kexts and opengl framework, but when I boot, with nvinject 0.1.7 (I’ve tried most of them) I either get a cursor which I can move and a black screen or a light blue screen and no cursor. I can’t boot any further than this. Any ideas?

    Great news for HP Compaq 8710p users as well: finally got full QE/CI and native 1680×1050 with resolution switching on the GeForce Quadro NVS320M as found inside this monster laptop 🙂

    A huge thx to Netkas and all the others making this possible

    Take care,

    Workin flawless on NVIDIA EN8600 GTS
    Just one thing… How to enable TV-Out (Mirror) is it not supported yet?

  28. January 4th, 2008 | 10:19 am

    Hi Netkas and the Osx86 team,

    I just would like to thank you very much for this great job.
    Now i can play well with Osx since my 8400m GS works like a charm.

    So happy this day has come.

    Have fun, take care of you and keep cool.

    Do you think this will work with an Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M? It’s supposed to be extremely similiar to the 8600, but its GPU is geared more toward 3d rendering instead of gaming.

  30. Takuro
    January 6th, 2008 | 10:33 pm

    Scratch that. I meant it’s close to an 8400, not 8600.

    Hi Netkas and dudes!

    I installed new kexts and OGL, and sysinfo noticed me CI/QE working.

    Whenever I move window or scroll mouse wheel. the contents of window scrambled.
    Someone told me that it just because kexts are BETA.

    Netkas, you mentioned before that this driver makes annoying GUI glictches.
    But a lot of people looks successful with this BETA driver.

    What’s your idea about this matter? Shall I wait for the time being?

    Is there any cure for this Bug?

    New MacPros with GeForce 8800GT at Apple website! Cool!

    In case it has not been mentioned before, new mac pros are available with 8800 GT available as a bto option. I guess that explains why the 10.5.2 nvidia kexts can be made to work with 8800 GT.

    Hi there!

    I think is a foolish question, but is there any chances for 10.5.2 kext to work under Tiger 10.4.10?
