a better benchmark is "OpenMark OpenGL Benchmark"

http://www.giofx.net/osx/openmark.htm

x800gt score 8921, below, gma915 score from earlier today was only 557!

(x600 pro?)

You would probably have to hex edit the x1000 kext the same way.

Just follow the instructions from the README file, it worked for me and I'm using 10.4.5 too. Its important to edit the marked(!) Info.plist deviceid (see README). Also you should use the original ATIRadeon9700.kext !!! A backup is saved in /Users/username/Documents/originals .
btw: dont use the v2 patch on a v1 patched file !!

Ok, im having a VERY funny problem here, i have a radeon x740 applied the 0.2 patch edited the .plist and rebooted everything works QE+CI no problems? I then rebooted the machine again and guess what, it wont boot gets to the grey apple logo and a mouse pointer appears and crashes. Its done this with 10.4.3, 10.4.4, and 10.4.5, any help would be greatful. I mean how can it work one minute and after a reboot without changing anything not work??? very strange :)

I'm on a 10.4.5 installation and I've got a ATI x700 0x5653. I followed all the README instruction but It doesn't start up. Maybe the problem is in the "ATIRadeon9700.ktext/Context/MacOS/Info.plist" file. I changed 0x5B601002 with 0x56531002. Did u do the same??There's maybe something else?

Help me please.

Hi,

I'm planning to buy Acer TravelMate TM8204WLMi Notebook which has Mobility Radeon X1600 and is identical to MacBook Pro which has the same card. Do I have to do koverg patch for this card since MacBook Pro has this same card, it should work natively with OS X 10.4.4 and 1.0 patch. Right?

Can koverg or somebody please clarify?

Thanks.

Success with ATI Mobility X300 in a Dell Inspiron 9300! Used v2 of the patch and all went well! You rule koverg! I haven't been able to get anything above 1024x768x32 though, although I have been able to take it down to 1024x768x16 to play a game that required lower color settings.

Yeah, I've tried setting it both at boot and in com.apple.Boot.plist. Also, I forgot to mention I'm using 10.4.3, so that might be the issue.
