    Well this is what I found somewhere else:

    “The Russian hacker known as Netkas has hinted that he?s cracked Nvidia?s Fermi ROM, the firmware underlying its most powerful cards, which are currently Windows-only.

    In a post titled ?On the mac?s fermi ROM,? Netkas posted a winking smiley face ? a hint that he?s cracked the drivers for Nvdia?s most powerful line of graphics cards.”

    for everyone who wonders it means netkas has the rom from fermi and awaits apple for release of newer kexts or nvidia more like nvidia

  35. February 16th, 2011 | 8:53 pm

    I have a new quadro 4000 for mac, I can get you the firmware or bios from the card. Would that help?
    Specifically, would that make a gtx 580/590 work on OSX fully featured?

    I feel like the hardware had all this potential but under OSX the weakest link is video card support

    Also,
    I am also open to getting 6000 series uber card working if need anything from those cards I’ll send the files to you

    what’s the hold-up?

    February 18th, 2011 | 1:18 pm

    I think Netkas works at Fermi Mac BIOS, which can make retail PC Fermi cards to work at MacPro, it’s nice, but won’t help any Hackintosh users with their GTX 5XX cards. Also Fermi not only 5XX cards, it’s also a big family of 4XX cards, that works at Hackintoshes perfectly today.

    5XX users should wait for a new MacBooks in march and hope, that Apple will use any 500M series cards in it, and if not, maybe just updates drivers in 10.6.8 (upcoming 10.6.7 comes without new drivers) or nVidia updates drivers for their Quadro Mac card.

    ehm .. and why wouldn’t a “retail pc 5xx” card that works in a mac work in a hackintosh? I mean .. real mac needs drivers just as well right? Problem here is that the current drivers have issues with gf110 chip…

  42. Yolanda
    February 18th, 2011 | 4:51 pm

    Real Mac also requires compatible Mac BIOS code, on Hackintosh you use Chamellion or other injecting method, but on real Mac these operations must be completed in BIOS and card must work just after system turned on.
