You'll need to be a little more specific than "no work". Are you able to boot OSX then just no picture? Black Screen? White Screen? Dancing Unicorns?

How many, one, two, five? There's a big difference between two Dancing Unicorns and five Dancing Unicorns! Sparkley or pooping rainbows? Different processes for each! :)

This will not help. Please read the thread in full so that you understand that issues your GPU currently has under Mac OS X.

@grillaccio:
10.8.3 added drivers for the 7xxx card series but it is probable that the "sleep trick" will still have to be used when the final version is published.
If you are looking for a fully working Hackintosh and don't want to experiment much, you should better get another card instead; an Nvidia 660 for example which works quite well with Mac, I heard.

So it's just a matter of grabbing the driver media that comes with this card and try to use them to enable support for all AMD 7xxx cards. I suppose them drivers (EDIT: oh, i see: where is written "drivers"should be writen "cards": my mistake) will work only with UEFI boards.

Best regards!

I think is not only the drivers

The hardware of the Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition, the Windows version is similar ergo strong, we assume that the changes are mainly found in the BIOS.

You're talking about the VBIOS (The BIOS of the card)?

If it is, that was precisely part of my my point: it's probably an EFI card, so it would be either needed to flash the card for it to boot from BIOS (and that way it would be just another 79xx PC card) or boot with UEFI mode, assuming the UEFI 2.0 of this kind of board can read the EFI 1.0-compatible VBIOS of the card.

The drivers that come with the mac version would be important, though (that's the other half of my point): i suppose they're stable drivers, compatible with all versions of Mountain Lion. If the card is in the market before 10.8.3 is officially out (it's not impossible at all, given how Apple is retarding its release), the drivers of this card can be used as research material for all 7xxx cards, instead of the buggy beta 10.8.3 AMD7xxx kexts. See, Sea?

Best regards!

Yes i talk about the vbios ( the 7*** have a white screen bug, also in my config whit the new uefi vbios installed in my 7970 ) and maybe this new bios solve this.
Yes, the optimized drivers are very important but for now we have decent drivers for the 7*** , but i hope this bios fix the white screen bug ( sleep trick ) in our hackintosh.

Have anyone managed to get a AMD 7990 card working with the 10.8.3 beta?
It says included 7xxx drivers, but im a little sceptical since wether 7990 will work.
any thoughts on this?

What I did when I found out newer could be trouble (I bought the XFX 7750) was I said screw the new cards and I started to look for and found a used one like I already had.

How much more performance could I possibly squeeze out of the newer card compared to my old (Sapphire hd 5750) I mean in a Hackintosh (I dont play games nothing like that)? My guess is I wouldnt se any.

So to me the question is is it really worth the trouble if the increase of "visual" performance is hardly noticeable? I have my three ports working including displayport just by editing two kexts and the cards works supergood in finalcut, logic, surfing the internet, movies etc etc so from my point of view me the answer is no.
