7850 now works in dev2 with editing 2 kexts: AMDRadeonX4000.kext and AMD7000Controller.kext.  No fbrotate or helper card needed. With using clover 1888 and GE=no, recognized as 7xxx with multiple screen support - with clover 1888 and GE=yes it's recognized as 7850 2GB but only single monitor.  oh well go apple :ninja:

Hello guys, can anyone help me...? just got a sapphire 7950 and mavericks detects it with Full QE support but i want to connect 3 monitors. The ports of the card are 2 DVI, 1 DP and 1 HDMi ... one of the DVI clones the HDMi... so in reality it has 3 working separate ports. The problem is when i connect the 3 monitors all 3 are detected but only two show image, the other is black and when i try to change the display preferences i see all 3 detected but i click the one that shows black and the system freezes... with 2 monitors it works great... is there any way to correct how mavericks is detecting the cards ports?

 

thanks

Hi, Could you look in OpenGl Viewer or Oceanview Waves and see what the card is id'd as? We are trying to figure out which one gets called "D300" in these apps. It will either say "Radeon 7850 OpenGl Engine" or it will say "AMD D300 OpenGl Engine"

 

We have already found that 7870 XT is the D500

And the 7970 is the D700, as you can see earlier in the topic...

You need to choose the correct framebuffer for your model. For me it was Dashimaki and using miniDVI. Check this thread for more on how I got it working right: http://www.insanelym...ack-on-hd7770/ 

 

Hey I installed Mavericks using this torrent:

Boot in safe mode and erase all the kexts from nVidia and Intel HD. Rebuild your caches and repair your permissions. That should do the trick.

Im Using Clover.
Standard install. it recognizes the GPU, QE is working, but the performance is very poor.

How can i enter ati personality, Framebuffer, etc using Clover configurator?

Tks a zillion

I use Kext Utility. It repairs permissions and system caches on launch even if you're not going to install a kernel extension.

I also use Clover. You can find that information on the thread that I pointed you to. If you're not into fiddling with text files you can use Clover Configurator. That's what I used in the beginning. But be aware that it's a process that takes it time, I've managed to get the card properly recognised after "many" attempts.

 

And if my posts we're useful please leave a like on them  :)

You still do not have the correct frame buffer selected.

Is there a way to do it using Chameleon?

Will it speed up the 7970?

Is there any experience w/ the Sapphire 100357LP Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card mDP/ DVI-I/ HDMI in Mavericks? Got very good reviews on Amazon and NewEgg.
 
My Optiplex 745 SFF (Small Form Factor) and a 27" mDP ACD are looking for a new low-profile mDP video card, and the 7750 is said to groove along just fine with the PSU. Now I'm wondering about Mavericks compatibility.
