Which bootloader you use is fairly irrelevant as you are not going to use any form of graphics enabler. So unless you are using a sandy bridge processor then I would go for Chameleon RC5 and remember to not use the GraphicsEnabler option.

All of those 6870's look like reference cards, I have the 1st one on your list I believe the Sapphire however I flashed it to a slightly overclocked XFX bios but in short any of those 3 cards should work just fine so just buy the cheapest one!

~30 on opengl Cinebench is kind of a meh result, for this card, imo?
I am getting 25 on 9800 GTX+, and that's what, 3 years old?

As for 6970, still no luck, just solid blue upon boot. I ordered XFX 6870, so hopefully that will work.

24 fps in OpenGL is a shi**y result, compared to the 50 I have in Windows, but honestly who cares? Not many people are going to play on Mac OS so this result is irrelevant for me. The power of a graphic card is based not only on the raw power but also on the optimization of the drivers, and clearly non-Apple VGA's aren't optimized.

Yeah probably a crappy result. I agree though who cares? The only game I play anymore is Minecraft and that runs fine. If I want to do any serious gaming I'm going to boot into windows anyways.

hi

bad fps, change mac version

mac 3.1 not 4.1

smbios.plis or folder extra
Mac pro 3.1

results is better in 3.1 or Macpro5.1 test

--> Customization -> System Definitions -> Mac Pro -> MacPro 3,1

The cinebench openGL test isn't the best test of GPU performance. If you have a fast GPU, you'll notice that during this test, one CPU will be used at 100% approx, meaning the test is CPU-bound (and doesn't use multithreaded openGL that was introduced years ago in OS X).

You'd better use openGL extension viewer, single rotating cube fullscreen with AA and AF (multiple cube is CPU-bound too).

I have 2 6870's in crossfire but os x doesn't support crossfire so it will only be using one card anyway. As you can see from the cinebench results that I posted earlier; Windows gives a much higher score (almost 90fps).

How do you use this benchmark in Windows? On Mac I had ~2300/2400 fps for OpenGL 1.1-2.1, but doesn't SL support up to OpenGL 3.0?
In Windows I tried to run without Forward Context (so that, if I understood correctly, lets you run OpenGL 1.1-2.1 tests so that I could compare the results with Mac) and I got the results attached.

Yes that would be the procedure.

Every 6870 reference works with this procedure, not just the Sapphire (HIS, PowerColor, XFX, Gigabyte,...)
