Just took a look at the 10.5.2 NVDANV50Hal.kext and the good news is G92 support is in!

Here is the IOPCIPrimaryMatch

0x00f010de&0xfff0ffff 0x019010de&0xfff0ffff 0x040010de&0xfff0ffff 0x042010de&0xfff0ffff 0x06e010de&0xfff0ffff 0x060010de&0xffe0ffff

Important part is the 0x060010de which matches the G92.

0611 G92 [GeForce 8800 GT]

Hopefully next few days we can get a proper confirmation that it works with non EFI based G92 cards.

that's kind of interesting that you have access to 10.5.2 when no one else does.

where did you find that kext?


EDIT: google searches are always good ... -_-

that is awesome!!

does this mean nearly guaranteed support? or are we going to hit the same problems as with the 8600 GT?

I don't have that kext but someone else I know does. Its really not important, what is important is that G92 support is there -_-

Could you get said person to post this kext up on Rapidshare/here on the forum? I'm sure there are plenty of people who own this card that are willing to try it..

Not going to happen. I was interested just in what is in it. Not about asking someone to distribute the files.

Support added based on the updated plist.

0x042010de&amp;0xfff0ffff 

0421	GeForce 8500 GT
0422	GeForce 8400 GS
0423	GeForce 8300 GS
0425	GeForce 8600M GS
0426	GeForce 8400M GT
0426	G86M [GeForce 8400M GT]
video card on my new sony vaio laptop
0427	GeForce 8400M GS
0428	GeForce 8400M G
0429	Quadro NVS 140M
042a	Quadro NVS 130M
042b	Quadro NVS 135M
042d	Quadro FX 360M
042f	Quadro NVS 290

0x06e010de&amp;0xfff0ffff

0x060010de&amp;0xffe0ffff

0611	G92 [GeForce 8800 GT]

8400/8600 guys should be working now too. This looks much better than the original 10.5.1 plist which had partial 8600 support.

Whats more interesting is the 0x06e0 which has no pci ids listed on the linux pci id repository site. Something new? :angel:

i hope this is true

if it is, ill wait and keep my 8800 gt.

i was going to trade it for a G80 8800 GTS(which would be stupid because i paid a cheaper price than the 8800 GT) or buy a cheap video card for now just to run mac.

You say 8600/8400 should be working now too... I'm not much of a mac geek, but I thought that the 8600 has already had drivers since a while, but they didn't help anyone to get QE/CI on their cards. What makes this update different? (don't get me wrong, i *do* want it to work!)

Build 9C7, it is!
Anyways, this is great... all the drivers for my hardware come out right after I start OSx86'ing. I'm going to buy a 8800GT, and this comes. My computer's 82566 wouldn't work, but when I start OSx86'ing bigdaddyrob2g makes one...

Anyways, thanks to Apple for finally (finally finally) switching to nVidia's HIGH-END products. I might just get an iMac!

I'm wondering if it supports G92 GeForce 8800GTS 512MB... Anyway if you really wanna try the new kexts, be sure to grab the new OpenGL.framework too ! I guess if it's like the G80, you just need to inject the usual NVIDIA values...

johan : 8800GTX is G80 and works with existing kexts.

@alexcooltranquille : great news then, i'm pretty sure if one works, the other will too !
