Hi.

I just installed a XFX Radeon HD 6870 2GB GDDR5 ("Dual Fan -DD" edition), but I'm worried my Duckweed framebuffer is not ok. Could someone verify or is everything ok?
I can play chess and DVD player.

Cinebench score is only 36.10. That is too low... what to do?

OS X Lion 10.7.2

Chameleon version:
Chimera 1.7

org.chameleon.Boot.plist:
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>

<key>AtiConfig</key>
<string>Duckweed</string>

ioreg | grep ATY
+-o ATY,Duckweed@0 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x100000336, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (697 ms), retain 7>
+-o ATY,Duckweed@1 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x100000337, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (7 ms), retain 7>

+-o ATY,Duckweed@3 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x100000339, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (6 ms), retain 7>

bdmesg

I noticed that my 1682:310a is a different from others xfx cards. Probably the 2GB?

Btw: The fan is working all the time, not a full speed, but not like it does in bios/boot area. Then its pretty darn silent. In Linux Mint as well. When OS X Lion login screen appears the fan kicks in again, if you catch my drift. So there is a problem in OS X and fan control.

Thank you in advance :)
