I have a Zotac Geforce 560 Ti and Lion 10.7.3 does NOT recognized my card at all. Edited the info.plist file in

NVDAGF100Hal.kext, installed latest CUDA driver, etc. already. About MAC still showing Nvidia video card. No CUDA, no OPENCL support....

It's weird, with the Zotac Geforce 560 Ti and Lion 10.7.3, no video files are playable. Using VLC, Blu-ray player for MAC, just black screen....weird...

For OpenCL + Fermi you must normally patch the geforce driver.

Do you have QE/CI working? Or OpenGL (in hardware , not Software Apple mode, check it with OpenGLExtensionsViewer)?
If not perhaps your GPU devID isnt included in the bootloader version you use for graphicsenabler=yes.

Mitch, thank you for the advice. I finally got the system to detect my video card correctly by deleting the Natil.kext file in S/L/Extensions and then installing the 5XX enabler. No video file, no youtube video were playable prior to this because the system was not detecting the video card correctly. Now it's all good. Thank you again.

My 560TI 448 is driving me bonkers. I have it attached to a 1920x1080 monitor via HDMI, and the only resolution I have available is 1280x1024.

Using Enoch v1975 (Nvidia-enabling branch of chameleon), graphicsenabler=yes, did Netkas' 2 hexedits of GeForceGLDriver, under 10.7.4.

I don't think openGL is working though, as TF2 refuses to run (no drivers reported), and openGLextensionsviewer only reports a software renderer.

About this Mac -->

GeForce GTX 560 Ti-448:

Chipset Model: GeForce GTX 560 Ti-448
Type: GPU
Bus: PCIe
Slot: Slot-1
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 1280 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x1087
Revision ID: 0x00a1
ROM Revision: 70.10.61.00.02
Displays:
Display:
Resolution: 1280 x 1024
Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
Main Display: Yes
Mirror: Off
Online: Yes


That would look like its working, but its not....

anyone have any ideas??

EDIT: I just connected my old DVI 1680x1050 monitor, and I still get only 1280x1024 with 'detect displays' not doing anything. So I don't think HDMI is the issue here, just some sort of failure to completely recognize & make use of the video card.

EDIT2: Wow! I replaced enoch with vanilla chameleon (probably has nothing to do with it) and ran ####### Nvidia 5XX support enabler, which in addition to Netkas' openCL fixes has some other fixes (System/Library/Extensions/NVDAGF100Hal.kext/Contents/Info.plist is patched using MacMan's research.) I now have full 1080p over HDMI!! Yay. Problem with Overscan now, as the desktop is somehow bigger than the screen with overscanning checked, when unchecked it's a bit smaller than the screen. Still, big, big, progress

When you say detected correctly, is it detected at a "GTX 560ti" or as an "Unknown 1280mb, but seems to be working properly"? I cannot get an ID 1087 card to be recognised properly, and I'm blaming this for my low cinebench scores... I can get 38 in Win, but only 28 in 10.7.3. Maybe I'll try deleting Natil too?

Opal,

It correctly detected my video card as "Geforce 560 Ti - 1024mb" not unknown. Delete the Natil.kext to see if it works for you. Also, make sure you download and run the 5XX enabler too. Good luck.

Thanks Joot. I checked for Natil.kext and I don't have it. I also installed the 5xx enabler but that didn't do anything. I can't upgrade my system profile from macpro 3,1 to 4,1 or 5,1 as it causes my kernel to panic. I notice you said 1024mb... Am I right in assuming you've got the ID=1200 card not the id=1087 card?

As we say in England, the 1087 is a 'wrongen'! lol

Yeah, I got the ID=1200 card. OK if 5XX enabler don't work, then try downloading latest NVidia driver from Nvidia website and install it.

Dear patient wise (wo)men - I have tried all of the above with my new MSI N560GTX (560 ti) on my shiny Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H with my lightening fast i7-3770k.

Partial Success: The system recognizes the video card properly in system info.
Source of Frustration: The resolution I get on my 27inch monitor is 1024 x 768.

TI have osx 10.7.4. Any advice? I have downloaded the nvidia drivers as well and it says they are installed.

BTW:

Nvidia release rev6 of their drivers for Lion 10.7.4:


http://www.nvidia.co...f06-driver.html

Don't forget to remove any nvidia enablers you have installed.

If you want to search for newer drivers in the future on the NVIDIA page http://www.nvidia.co...aspx?lang=en-us , enter the following search criterias:

GeForce
GeForce 8 Series
GeForce 8800 GT
Mac OSX Lion 10.7.4 (or newer, if available)
English (US)


The drivers seem to work with all Fermi cards. On Hackintosh, set GraphicsEnabler=y as usual.
