AMD dual graphics 6950 supported

Hi ALL

all credit goes to Netkas/Andy/chameleon team Ermac

This 7 kexts support 6950/6970 to mac osx 10.7.x and 10.8

just install via kext wizard.

before install delete Amdraden kexts.

AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext

After install kexts set GraphicsEnabler=Yes.

MY dual cards works v.well. more info look my ioreg files.

Allso windows7 supported crossfire

All but 2 monitors must be connected to the DP ports on the AMD graphics card, and be able to

support the required resolution. The 2 exceptions can be connected to the DVI or HDMI ports.

The monitors connected to the DP ports can be connected with DP cables, or using AMDrecommended

active adapters to DVI or HDMI ports on the monitors.

Where multiple graphics adapters are installed, Eyefinity groups cannot span across multiple

adapters. With cross-fire enabled, only monitors connected to the primary card will be enabled.

NOTE-10.8 dp4 this kexts not 100%support.

So I take it that boot loader you used inside the "loder" folder can recognize more than 1 gpu in a pcie slot if I'm not mistaken?

 

Congrats btw on the dual 6950 working. :star_sunglasses:

2) I will get this 2 files on 10.7.4 and replace with in 10.7.5 right?

Could someone post up the 10.7.4 frameworks? I'm trying to get this to work on ML but his instructions are not very clear as to how to install it on ML.

after 10.7.5 update remove GPUSupport.framework

paste your backup this files

OpenGL.framework

nope. anyway you don't have hardware acceleration enabled... Have you replace the "boot" file with that into folder?

I delete AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext and I changed the boot with latest chameleon! If I dont delete AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext I get just white screen.

Hey manor!

I followed your guide, updated to 10.7.5 then delete GPUSupport.framework, copy OpenGL and OpenCL.framework back and finally copy all the kexts file back.

I currently can boot but there's no OpenGL or anything. I have full res though. I saw your pictures that you could make 10.7.5 boot with ATI opengl, could you show me how?

Or if it even possible in 10.8, that would be great.

Thanks for your time!

 

Edit: Finally able to make it work on 10.7.5. Thank a lot manor!!

It does. But with 10.7.4 and 10.7.5 only. Our best bet is using 10.7.4.

Youtube is still slow even with 480p though.
