In order to use this trick you must have a supported video card, with CI and QE supported!!
1. Download QuartzSimple (Mirrored on my website, Click Here)
2. Copy Quartz Debuug to your Applications Folder and open it
3. Go to Tools and Click "Enable Quartz 2D Extreme"
4. Go to Tools and Click "Show BeamSync Tools" and Click "Disable Beam Synchronization"
5. Now Hit Command (Apple or alt if your on a pc keyboard) + alt (windows on a pc keyboard) + esc
6. Click Quartz Debug and hit "Force Quit" then click Finder and hit "Relaunch"
7. Any apps that you have open will have to be closed and open again for you to notice the speed in them.
8. Any time you restart, you will have to disable Beamsync again, I have yet to find a workaround.
When I did this trick on my Hackintosh, I went from low 60's to high 80's and low 90's, also the GUI is just blazing.
Also when you relaunch finder, the QuartzSimple directions disapper, just click the icon in the dock and the directions will pop up again.
EDIT: Forgot to post link to quartz debug
EDIT/UPDATE: QuartzSimple Added, and broken link fixed

Will disabling Beam Sync provide actual, practical, real world speed improvement or just boost my benchmark numbers? If so, where will I see the difference?

Enabling 2d quartz helps a lot with dialogs and such. And disabling beamsync, just makes your system SCREAM, up to 2 times faster, its crazy. Its not just the benchmarks, its a noticable speed increase.
Where do you notice the speed-up? My XBench jumped from 74 to 94, but I'm not sure I'm feeling much change? Is it in video performance or processor intensive processes or something else?]

I guess since you can revert back I'll try it and see what happens.
Posted 13 April 2006 - 12:07 AM
With BeamSync: 32.36 for the Quartz Graphics test, 19.18 for the GUI test
Without BeamSync: 51.08 for the Quartz Graphics test, 59.10 for the GUI test
Obviousy there's a huge increase in performance.
And, so far I haven't seen any changes in quality degredation. I'll post back here though if I end up finding some.
BTW, I have an ATI card that isn't supported, which answers my question from my previous post.

do you have Qe and CI running m3?
No, as I said I try the app that CrazyPigeon post, but I doesn’t work, it said “QuartzExtreme not compatible”. And I don’t now if my video card is really not compatible, the Callisto driver is not compatible, or something else.
I also try another methods without any result (patch .plugin).
