  1. Heaven OpenGL benchmarks DP6

    Be careful with the "windowed" score. As I mentioned on netkas' blog, OS X imposes Vsync on any windowed app, even if you explicitly disable it. At least it does on my Macs. I'm not sure if windows does it.
  2. Heaven OpenGL benchmarks DP6

    Anyone cares to run the Valley Benchmark? My laptop is too slow for a relevant test.
  3. Heaven OpenGL benchmarks DP6

    Not sure why you thought I took it personally by specifying that the OS X results get closer to the Windows results. No one was discussing the number of games in each platform. You're off topic.
  4. Heaven OpenGL benchmarks DP6

    By a very tiny margin... These are good results. I cannot compare with Windows, but my slow 9600M GT (macbook) does quite a bit better under mavericks than under ML in that test. Perhaps 15% better, and dp6 brought substantial improvements.

    6XXX frame buffers are named after aquatic plants apparently.

    You should remove the link to that screenshot, because if it's really taken from a prototype iMac, it might get someone into trouble. That might be because I'm running vanilla 10.6.7. The screenshot appears to be taken from Snow Leo. Interesting that the name isn't listed in the controller, only in the GL driver, as opposed to non-mobility HD 6950/6970
  7. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    I'm kind of surprised you don't know. The image says "6950M", which would be a mobility card but the device ID is that of a 6970. There's an EFI on that card. PC cards don't have that. Plus, the name "radeon 6950M" is nowhere in the drivers (I looked for it) nor in the BIOS, so system profiler has most likely read the name from the EFI. That would be a prototype GPU for Mac, possibly running on a prototype iMac. There's 2 instances of 'iMac' on that screenshot. The machine's name and the display. Is the iMac internal display connected by display port? This one would support 3 displays (still possible for upcoming iMacs). This could still be a hack, but why call a display "iMac" or use an iMac as a primary display? Seems unlikely to me. Or the screenshot could be a fake. That's interesting, but do you have anything to share that might help us? Note, some already tried remote desktop, so you need to be more specific.
  8. Luxball HDR 4870 only: score 1519 (10.6.7) EDIT Lion DP2 score: 2409. W00T!

    The DVD player crashes look like a bug in mpeg2 decoding by the GPU. Testing other cards will indeed tell us whether it's a bug in the new drivers or a problem with 'unofficial' cards.
  10. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    Yes, apparently the white screen is a typical symptom of the 6900 series running drivers from Lion or the new laptops. It occurs on hack or Mac Pros.
  11. ATI 6850

    There are problems with radeon HD 69XX. The 6950 isn't references in the controller, but even the 6970 doesn't work properly (tested by Rominator). It's unclear what frame buffer is used by 6XXX cards on a Mac Pro, maybe you guys can figure this out.
  12. ATI 6850

    By 100% do you mean all connectors? Because on Macs, the new drivers seem to have broken display port on (flashed) PC radeon 5870/5770. Thx for the installer. Are the drivers from Lion or the new laptops?
  13. There are many frame buffers for the radeon 6000, but only 3 personalities are listed in the infor.plist of ATI6000Controller.kext. I wonder why.
  14. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    Yes that would be the procedure.
  15. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    The cinebench openGL test isn't the best test of GPU performance. If you have a fast GPU, you'll notice that during this test, one CPU will be used at 100% approx, meaning the test is CPU-bound (and doesn't use multithreaded openGL that was introduced years ago in OS X). You'd better use openGL extension viewer, single rotating cube fullscreen with AA and AF (multiple cube is CPU-bound too).
