  1. AMD Radeon 6250 0x98401002

    Subject typeo: AMD Radeon 6250 0x98041002 I am able to have this card load, but it's VRAM is only at 4mb. This card is on a Compaq CQ57 AMD I've got the newest ATI kexts, and verified my card ID was in the plist for the ATI6000Controller. Does anyone have the same card and able to get full memory?
  2. I think SL is much more responsive then ML. I noticed this on an i7 too, so my little core duo laptops will stay SL.
