Well the same applies to 10.8.3, you you the DSDT to load a proper framebuffer and you use the generic one in the screenshot(7xxx instead of 7970). My system shows 7970 with 10.8.3 with properly patched kext personality and DSDT.

PORTUGUÊS:

 

Olá VultUx, você saberia me dizer como eu posso ver se o meu "Framebuffer" está carregado no meu sistema? OS X ML 10.8.4 e Placa ASUS Radeon HD7750.

 

No org.chameleon.Boot, eu coloquei a "Framebuffer": "Chutoro" está correto para a minha placa? mas eu faço o comando no terminal: "ioreg | grep ATY" e não aparece o nome "chutoro".

 

ENGLISH:

 

Hello VultUx, you could tell me how I can see if my "Framebuffer" is loaded on my system? OS X 10.8.4 and ML Plate ASUS Radeon HD7750.
 
In org.chameleon.Boot, I put the "Framebuffer": "chutoro" is correct for my board? but I do the command in the terminal: "ioreg | grep ATY" and not appear the name "chutoro".

Sorry Jorge, I don't use any framebuffer don't do nothing in my system, I try to use the more clean install possible, I just use FakeSMC and other kext to USB 3.

 

Do you already read the tutorials from Rampage? Maybe have some information to help you.

Does QE/CI work for you? I've got to work flashed 7950 in DP1 on actual MP 1,1, using Chameleon 2247.

With GE=No no white screen but no QE/CI. OCL works, though. Card recognized as 7xxx.

With GE=Yes I'm getting white screen, but all acceleration kinds do work. Card recognized properly as 7950.

I have a 7850 2gig and all I had to do was add the device ID to the associated kexts.  Dual monitor no white screen.  Full QE/CI

for white screen use FBRotate app as start app. it reloads your monitor and the whitescreen is gone

I did the test, same problem and the display port doesn't work with GE enabled need to connect in DVI, probably wrong framebuffer.

Cinebench recognize the card like FirePro D700 but the performance is the same.

 

Could you explain how I know if QE/CI is working? And if is important have QE/CI?

To test QE/CI use Dashboard. It should run not as space (set it in Sys Prefs/MissionControl). Add whatever widget to Dashboard. If you'll see ripple effect, QE/CI works.

It's pretty important because it's responsible for hardware rendering all OS eye candy effects. If it doesn't work, UI seems laggy, some graphics features (as ripple and translucent menu bar) are inactive, some are software rendered.

was this in 10.8 or 10.9?  I can only find one place to add ID in 10.9- in AMDRadeonX4000.kext, are there other places?  also have a 7850 2GB.  thanks
