  1. Hi there, TL;DR; Any idea on how I can get an ATI Radeon HD5570 graphics card working on High Sierra? I just installed High Sierra, and I read it was supposed to be “Out of the Box” to get these AMD/ATI cards working, but it’s been very hard and I’ve read like 100 articles and done a million experiments to no avail. The card is built in to a HP TouchSmart 610-1030a touch screen PC, and the symptom/problem is: - I can at best get a decent resolution at best, but no acceleration (I'm testing with the Chess app but can visually see it everywhere) and the OS only detects 7MB memory whereas it has 1GB. I’ve tried a combination of: - OOTB (then there’s no detection really) - Clover setup in “Graphics” tab - combination of these settings: - Inject ATI - Load VBIOS/patch VBIOS - Entered my card details (what I thought) - vendor ID 0x1002, product ID 0x68d9, FBName “Eulemur” or “Baboon” Also; - I have Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext - I've got the "EmuVariableUefi-64.efi" file deployed in my drivers64UEFI folder - Tried using “downgraded” (from Sierra) versions of kexts AMDRadeonX3000.kext, AMDRadeonX3000GL.Driver.bundle, IOAccelerator2D.plugin, IOAcceleratorFamily2.kext (I think my wifi disappeared with the IO ones which makes sense I suppose) At worst in the "About this Mac" it just says "Display 3MB" (and often with poor resolution), and at best it says "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5570 7 MB" but with no acceleration (and no recognition of the 1GB VRAM). Any ideas of what I’m supposed to do? I don’t really get all the stuff I read about patching and rolling my own kexts etc but my impression was that after Sierra I wasn’t supposed to do that for the AMD/ATI cards. Thanks a lot in advance!!
