If that is true, I may want to jump over to the Radeon camp. Have been using Nv cards for the sake of easy hackintosh setup.

I can confirm it's true!
My XFX HD 5770 1 GB works like a charm natively.
The guide is HERE (short ver.) and HERE

Hey guys!

Help me please

I can buy a RADEON HD5670-1Gb-DDR5 for about 100$ converted from HUF.
Now I'm using a 8400GS. Will this card work far better than my current and will it work perfect on my hackinthosh without any hacking?
So I mean the 10.6.7 is containin the driver for 5670 OOB?

Thanks,
Chris

thats something you just shouldnt compare 8400GS is so old it aint funny, no power at all compared to what a 5670 will give you. 8400GS does not do much, 5670 will {censored}e all over a 8400GS.

will also go test this native theory :) as my id has always been in the files.
