Well, i've searched a lot through this wonderful forum, and i post this to be sure i'm right before buying this card.

Well i have a P5LD2-VM Mobo with GMA950
Everything works. Sleep S3 is perfect (and really needed for TV recording). I've got dual screen with an ADD2 card. I use mifki kernel because sleep dont work with semthex kernel.

Well i want a more powerful graphic card for 3D & dual screen.

My choice would be a fanless XFX 7600GS dual DVI

I saw some ppl having this card working (Zam...). But i saw that diabolik could not make it sleep.

Well can anyone report me if everything work :
- sleep/wake (S3 mode) ?
- dual DVI screen ?

I hope someone has this card and can answer for those items :thumbsup_anim:

Thanks a lot !


(BTW, i dont want to buy the XFX 7300 GS because its not dual DVI nore Fanless)

Thanks for the answer, yes i saw the HCL before, but there is no info about sleep and dual dvi, and that's the purpose of my question :thumbsup_anim:

i use an XFX 7600 fanless edition on my commell-lv677 it sleeps only after paulicat's speedstep enhanced kernel.
dual dvi works using my installer. full QE/CI and reswitch (no mirror mode, only extended)

thx for the answer !!! that's promising

So Diabolik you've got my dream : 7600GS fanless dual dvi extended mode, and sleep working !!!


BTW, which sleep mode do you have ? S1 or S3?

I've just plugged it into,

install diabolik's package

remove titan.kext which made corrupted graphics

and NOW, i've got dual DVI display in extended mode, faster than GMA950, and with sleep S3 working !!!!!!!!

My dream comes true :)

Thanks to all (diabolik's of course :unsure: )

:P
