I got the xfx 7870 1ghz double dissipation thing. which framebuffer should we use ?
Edit: Not the black edition, which is 50mhz overclocked. I got normal 1 ghz speed
Edit II: On OSX 86 i found commentaries about the fbrotate app. and every 7870 that worked were the overclocked modells.
One comment with a normals 7870 says it doesnt work for him.
I've actually tried all 7xxx fbs but sadly none worked for me
But I am not certain if I'm using the correct fb flag, because they don't seem to have any effect.
Sad to hear that there are now 3 cases of non-working sleep trick on a standard 7870
There's a recent post at tony's about the 7870 that got me excited at first (I think he got the same card as you), but turns out he's using integrated graphics. I can boot in easily with a 2nd card without the need of deleting kexts.
Btw are you currently booting in using integrated graphics or a 2nd VGA as well?
I'm currently booting using an old PCI card as my first display, but since it's a really old card, it's causing a lot of lag even on my main display.
And if you're using integrated graphics, do you experience the same kind of lag?
I'm now trying to figure out if I can disable the PCI card after I boot in. If I can have that, and if lag can be eliminated after that, I'll be happy enough.
Right now I'm just putting my system to sleep when I leave it for the night.
Did you try with this bootflag ?
We need that flag to boot in, but the problem is, we can't get the rotate trick to initiate at the white screen.
