  1. Please, anyone have a clue why qe/ci are very laggy with my old gtx470 on 10.8.5? I have tried using 10.8.4 nvidia drivers, but no avail. I can't boot with 10.84 web drivers. opengl works well, but anything with os x transitions or animations seems unaccelerated.
  2. ~gaspimp: can you please recompile your ethernet kext to work with 10.8.5? Sorry I didn't see that you published the source, and I did it so now I compiled it against my system and it works perfectly. Thank you for your work. AppleIntelE1000e.kext.zip
  3. I went from a hackintosh q6600 @ 3.6 to a i7 920 @ 4.2 + HT and let's just say It's almost as fast in benchmarks with 2 cores in vmware (have yet to try more vmware server). Of course, noo core image and quartz extreme of course, which is :censored2: I can't even imagine native, but I have a Asus Rampage Extreme II so no great tutorials plus waiting for snow leopard. 24inch? has a great display which is all you will miss..
  4. Dual Display on 4870?

    Dual dvi displays work with the updated Natit.kext for a while. Either search through and find a link, or jump on irc.
  5. You show off netkas, you def won this round over the 8800gt The 4870 512mb peeks 9% quicker than the 8800gt peek here which is wonderful and all but what about dual monitors? Anyone have a hunch that they will work in the relatively near future before I fleabay the 4870 ?
  6. What about the new ATI HD4850 ?

    I have EP35-DS3L (ALC888) working with a 4870. DVI cable in slot closer to mobo, DVI to VGA adaptor needs to be in the other. I'm not using an injector or EFI strings.. just HDAEnabler -S is for single login/safe mode, won't help you in this case. -F is needed! apply it to each boot with OSX86Tools so you don't forget. -V use it to check why you are getting a kernel panic or whatever at boot. Which method exactly are you using for audio? How are you installing the kext? Remember to repair permissions!

    Just tried OpenMark, it's very basically a sphere version of glxgears... 8800GT 2 times higher fps than 4870.. couldn't believe it Although was a close call between the 2 in Cinebench, I believe it lost by only like 7% average. Keep in mind the clock speeds of the cards too.

    Very wacky Halflife 2 mod Team Fortress 2! To me it's like a third Team Fortress Classic, Urban Terror, and Time Splitters Stable in crossover using DX8, aslong as you keep settings default. DX9 runs like in vmware or parallels haha.

    I know, you're totally right.. and valve really has a thing for not doing mac ports. Would you say it's worth keeping for the sake of opencl? I trust your judgement. In the drivers current state, does anyone know if it would drive a 30 inch display? I didn't notice a difference when I swapped opengl.frameworks.. but don't mind being a guinea pig if there is a newer framebuffer or something

    In Disk Utility Select your OS drive or if you are in safe mode /usr/sbin/diskutil repairPermissions / netkas everything runs very well, is it to soon to say if dual dvi monitors will work eventually? I noticed the few occurrences on your blog..

    I'm stoked dude! Just sold my 8800gt on ebay because I scored a ASUS Death Knight TOP HD 4870 512MB for $104.99+ shipping AR! I'm not a huge gamer, but would the 4780X2 work.. I'm not to clear on hardware sli vs software sli? and how os x responds to it. Thank you! keep up the awesome work
  12. Thank you so much for your time and effort! I feel bad that you are struggling, because I know the feeling.. it just sucks that there really isn't a feasible way to downgrade, osx/osx86 is totally worth it though. I went from a generally solid 10.5.5.. only instability was I think flash several versions would crash safari and firefox, and my audio had a pop. 10.5.6 update was smooth like I don't know what! Only changes have been your kext! for sata/ahci.. because my esata enclosure is picky I guess.. hd's still show up as external but who knows maybe it's always been like that?!? Audio is flawless.. not as loud but it sounds cleaner.. um crossover runs Team Fortress 2 better also. I just find it strange that something is off with your rig and not some of ours! Heh would someone be kind and post /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBHub.kext /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOUSBCompositeDriver.kext from 10.5.5, please!
  13. Ill have what they are having please! 10.5.5 boots slower than the previous ones. periodical video stutter unstable ide burner, iso's cause kernel panics. 9.5.0 kernel EP35-DS3L Thank you.
  14. Same here.. Please post the solution
