ati and 10.6.7

Nothing new regarding ATI cards support in 10.6.7 beta.

Nothing got broken(for me at least), but nothing was added.

Same for nvidia, no fermi support out of box yet.

    Looks like OS X isn’t Apple’s priority any we better get used to it 😀

    Whats about ati 6xx0 framebuffer support? Is this going to be working in the next version. Thinking to purchase a 6970 or 6990. Please advise.

    There is at least one chance to install Mac OS on notebook HP 3125er? (videocard ATI Radeon Mobility 5650)

    Damn it Apple, it’s not surprising, but it’s still pretty disappointing. I had let myself grow a bit hopeful about Fermi or perhaps a bit more interest in the Mac again, but I guess not. Maybe next year 🙁

    Does the new update 10j846 released have Fermi support for 5xx, or any graphics updates at all? Apple said focus on the graphics drivers in the testing.

    is ATI 5870 Mobile supported?

    Im guess not much has changed, but anyone looked into the new build of 10.6.7 today? (build 10J850). Developers are told to focus on graphics drivers, so I guess theres some hope.

    well apple has always been very selective about graphic cards options.. mac’s always seem to get the left overs and never the bleeding edge. If gaming on the mac was huge.. you’d see lots more focus on graphics cards. Us hackintoshers are a statistical outlier and we want the firepower.. but i dont think apple is showing any kind of “abnormal” neglect by not supporting the latest graphics hardware..

    Hi mate. Excellent work with OSX so far.

    I was wondering, would you know how to update the graphics drivers for Intel G965 found here to work with Snow Leopard 10.6.7 ? From 10.6.3 release and onwards these started to corrupt the graphics, but i think there was still QE/CI. Might have something to do with OpenGL.framework.

    New mackbooks has 6750 graphics. Guess it means we can get 6000 series working on hackintosh now.

  20. Cryptan
    February 25th, 2011 | 9:52 pm

    How long does it usually take to get video card support on a hackintosh after apple officially supports it? More specifically how long until 6000 series is supported?

    I’m hoping for a patch that works with 10.6.7 too ! Yesterday I tried to install 10.6.7 but then my Shappire 4890 Vapor-X lost QE/CI. I had to go back to 10.6.6 🙂

    My ATI Radeon 4870×2 doesn’t work on 10.6.7, I force it to change resolution, but QE/Cl doesn’t work. 🙁

    Anybody has any news about how to fix it?

  36. March 27th, 2011 | 8:26 am

    My ATI Radeon HD 4870×2 doesn’t have QE/CL in 10.6.7.
    Even I can’t change resolution until I replaced some files.

    Does anybody know how to fix it?

    March 28th, 2011 | 11:53 pm

    same here,
    waiting on some word about 4890 on 10.6.7.

    if you haven’t updated yet then wait for a patch.
    10.6.7 will mess up your qe/ci

    The ATI Radeon HD 4890 does not work under OS 10.6.7

    March 30th, 2011 | 10:24 pm

    hi guys, before the final version of the updating 10.6.7 is offered by Apple, I had privilege to test the betas last! And in every beta news, I made the same thing to make work my Sapphire HD 4830 (DVI / DVI), in knowledge I had used Netkas’s patched ATIRadeonX2000.kext from 10.6.6 QE/CI radeons patch and I put device-id of my SAPPHIRE HD 4830, therefore 0x0944c1002!

    Then I extracted ATI4800Controller.ketx of the build beta and I also put device-id of my HD 4830 (this did not work directly with that in S/L/E , I do not know why )!

    Then having installed with kext utility helper in S/L/E and that’s all, graphic card work fine and with QE/CI !

    good luck everyone’s ! 😉
