After some testing with Mario Bross we were indeed able to get a AMD 7970 working with QE under Mac OS X 10.8.3 using DSDT injection method.


http://rampagedev.wo...g-with-full-qe/

Important Note :

You need a working SLEEP system because a bug ...and also you will need your 7970 injected in the DSDT to have 100% support in any app....( your 7970 will also work partially without DSDT injection.. but without any FB loaded ), if you have a White o black screen after boot.. just put your system to sleep and later wake up.. it will make work your 7970.

Note: If you have problems whit the boot loader screen ( like a funny characters ) Just update your boot loader ! ( i test whit the last champlist and it work fine whit my 7970 )

Also this only work whit the 10.8.3 , the new 7***.kext can't work alone in 10.8.2.

Important: this also can apply to any AMD 7*** series GPU , just test and report ;)

Will this be easy to implement when 10.8.3 is out?

No, this has nothing to do with the AMD 6970. The AMD 6970 will Never Be Supported. Its time for you to sell that card and move on to a new card.

Don't ask about it... just do the tests and report back the results. That is why I provided a guide.

well booting normally, these kexts load: AMDSupport, AMD6000Controller, AMDRadeonAccelerator and
ATY_Init*. the aty i put it later with no results. but the gpu isnt recognized, just this info:


Monitor:

Tipo: GPU
Barramento: PCIe
Largura Lane PCIe: x8
Fornecedor: ATI (0x1002)

I will join with my XFX 7870 DD, too.

Have to go into Sleep on every boot. I guess this is called cold boot issue?

Attached are a decompiled DSDT and an IOReg file.

EDIT:

Replaced the Chutoro framebuffer with a custom one. I chose it because of the matching port amount.
Still no luck.
