    OSX86 Inefficient?

    but my problem isn't program specific although i will try those. it is trying to understand what can make a program so inefficient in the first place. more specifically, what about my computer would make a program not run efficiently?

    OSX86 Inefficient?

    i have been enjoying 10.5.7 for a while but i decided to get Unrar X to extract files and it took hours!!! I then got rar machine to do the other RARs but it too took hours. I switched to my windows 7 partition and it took 5 MINs to do the same task! I checked out the task manager and at least rar machine had 13 threads but the CPU utilized was less than 5% which is not bad but it is very inefficient. what's the cause of this? Phenom 9950 BE Windows 7 & Leopard 10.5.7 ATI Radeon 4890 OC edition (QE/CL enabled) 2 TB Hitachi 7200 RPM DVD/RW Drive
  3. nobody?? well i put in an order for a 4890 reference card
  4. I went out and bought a 4850 after hearing about how much nvidia sucks. unfortunately, my card is non-reference and it is the biggest pain i've ever had to deal with. by the way it is a Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 512MB card with HDMI,DVI, and VGA. So i want a great graphics card [or the best] that can be used with all those tricky kexts. i don't have all day to be trying out kexts. i want to install the graphics card and know that it will have qe/cl support (even if it requires a few kexts)!!

    A Simple Guide to the 4830/4850/4870/4870x2/4890

    Spoke too soon!!! after some further reading [i'm a college student ] i found on netkas' site that there are patched framebuffers for non-reference cards. You will have to go to his irc to obtain the file and i will not redistribute this file without his permission. [sorry] but if you want it, PM me and i will ask him. otherwise, i will assume that everyone knows how to get to an irc channel background: if you want to learn a little about framebuffers and accelerators go to: http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?...p;mode=threaded the reference card for my 4850 contains 2 dvi's and an s-video connection. because my card deviates from this original card [because it has hdmi and vga] it is non-reference. NEXT STEP: install acceleration driver! EDIT: This is now very taxing... i've included a screenshot but i don't know what to do besides these steps: 1) install patched framebuffers 2)install regular natit 3) install ati_init.pkg [exotic ati package doesn't work]

    My heart stopped after reading this! I'm mad I bought it for HDMI and quartz support only to find out that this was gonna end up killing me. I followed bero's guide but no luck: I also followed this with no luck. I'll see if i can get a refund from newegg . only reason i didnt get nvidia was because of netkas' post about why nvidia sucks... any help is welcome: i have 0x9442, hdmi,dvi,vga, sapphire radeon hd 4850 512mb, rest is in my sig
  7. no 64-bit kernel??? i'll wait a little bit

    VISUALS: Installed Wrong VGA Driver!

    I tried using drivemac but it wouldn't even show my mac partition. I have no other earthly idea other than to delete the kext from the terminal but i don't know how to get there from chameleon bootloader.
  10. I've been trying to add Quartz Extreme capability for my ATI RADEON 4650 HD. I put my install disk (iAtkos v7) in my drive and used a "driver-install" to use the ATI HD Driver (ATY_Init.kext) and now my leopard wont display anything. I tried booting into safe mode but i still dont see anything. Any help is appreciated.

    OSx86 won't detect ANY of my storage devices.

    Have you checked the HCL for the version you are trying to install? I used iAtkos v7 with AMD Phenom and had to enable AHCI & ACPI in my bios to get it working. By the way, can you include your specs?
