No. It works for 6970 like the post says!



Hi ^Andy^!

I have a Sapphire HD 6870 Vapor-X* and I am trying to have 3 desktops on Lion, but every time when I connect 3 monitors**, one stays black, if you know any solution, could you please let me know? Thanks in advance!

**DVI+HDMI(UP) or Both Mini DP with MAC MDP to DVI* or MDP to DP** plus active adapters to DVI*** or HDMI****

try booting to the installer with GraphicsEnabler=No (I don't have this problem using my boot cd so I'm guessing the version of chameleon that you are using lacks the correct 6970 settings).

So long as you've tried that the ports that you need work individually then the last factor to make it all possible is using active display port adapters and not the passive ones. Just get yourself an active DP -> HDMI or DVI adapter (make sure you don't buy a passive you'll see the price difference between the two). Main reason for this is because the passive ones lack the clock that's needed to give another signal out which is why you're receiving a black signal when the 3rd port is put into use (Due to the 2 clock limitations on current gpus)

Thanks for your reply! How can I make sure that my adapters are active? I bought them from the Sapphire supplier here in China, I have all the ports activated, I've tried many adapters and always I have the same bug, before I was using 5770 Flex Edition and one of the 3 monitors was just mirroring.

Hello,


I have this 6870 since a few month and it runs nearly perfect.

Only problem: At boot screen, I have a max resolution of 1400x1050.

Is it normal that the 6870 does not support 1650x1050 on boot?

I have

<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1680x1050x32</string>

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>AtiConfig</key>
<string>Duckweed</string>

specified in my boot.plist obviously and the card supports any resolution in OSX Lion.

Hi! Today I went to a PC shop where I could use a DP monitor and you were right, my adapters are not good/active, thanks a lot for your information! I used my hack with others adapters(real active) and I had 4 desktops. ;)
