Well the same applies to 10.8.3, you you the DSDT to load a proper framebuffer and you use the generic one in the screenshot(7xxx instead of 7970). My system shows 7970 with 10.8.3 with properly patched kext personality and DSDT.

PORTUGUÊS:

 

Olá VultUx, você saberia me dizer como eu posso ver se o meu "Framebuffer" está carregado no meu sistema? OS X ML 10.8.4 e Placa ASUS Radeon HD7750.

 

No org.chameleon.Boot, eu coloquei a "Framebuffer": "Chutoro" está correto para a minha placa? mas eu faço o comando no terminal: "ioreg | grep ATY" e não aparece o nome "chutoro".

 

ENGLISH:

 

Hello VultUx, you could tell me how I can see if my "Framebuffer" is loaded on my system? OS X 10.8.4 and ML Plate ASUS Radeon HD7750.
 
In org.chameleon.Boot, I put the "Framebuffer": "chutoro" is correct for my board? but I do the command in the terminal: "ioreg | grep ATY" and not appear the name "chutoro".

Sorry Jorge, I don't use any framebuffer don't do nothing in my system, I try to use the more clean install possible, I just use FakeSMC and other kext to USB 3.

 

Do you already read the tutorials from Rampage? Maybe have some information to help you.

Does QE/CI work for you? I've got to work flashed 7950 in DP1 on actual MP 1,1, using Chameleon 2247.

With GE=No no white screen but no QE/CI. OCL works, though. Card recognized as 7xxx.

With GE=Yes I'm getting white screen, but all acceleration kinds do work. Card recognized properly as 7950.

I have a 7850 2gig and all I had to do was add the device ID to the associated kexts.  Dual monitor no white screen.  Full QE/CI

for white screen use FBRotate app as start app. it reloads your monitor and the whitescreen is gone

I did the test, same problem and the display port doesn't work with GE enabled need to connect in DVI, probably wrong framebuffer.

Cinebench recognize the card like FirePro D700 but the performance is the same.

 

Could you explain how I know if QE/CI is working? And if is important have QE/CI?

To test QE/CI use Dashboard. It should run not as space (set it in Sys Prefs/MissionControl). Add whatever widget to Dashboard. If you'll see ripple effect, QE/CI works.

It's pretty important because it's responsible for hardware rendering all OS eye candy effects. If it doesn't work, UI seems laggy, some graphics features (as ripple and translucent menu bar) are inactive, some are software rendered.

was this in 10.8 or 10.9?  I can only find one place to add ID in 10.9- in AMDRadeonX4000.kext, are there other places?  also have a 7850 2GB.  thanks

Hello guys, can anyone help me...? just got a sapphire 7950 and mavericks detects it with Full QE support but i want to connect 3 monitors. The ports of the card are 2 DVI, 1 DP and 1 HDMi ... one of the DVI clones the HDMi... so in reality it has 3 working separate ports. The problem is when i connect the 3 monitors all 3 are detected but only two show image, the other is black and when i try to change the display preferences i see all 3 detected but i click the one that shows black and the system freezes... with 2 monitors it works great... is there any way to correct how mavericks is detecting the cards ports?

 

thanks

Hi, Could you look in OpenGl Viewer or Oceanview Waves and see what the card is id'd as? We are trying to figure out which one gets called "D300" in these apps. It will either say "Radeon 7850 OpenGl Engine" or it will say "AMD D300 OpenGl Engine"

 

We have already found that 7870 XT is the D500

    • Did you tried use ACPIBatteryManager.kext for the Battery? And for brightness you can use IntelBacklight  Both created by @RehabMan 
    • I have put it into clover drivers 64uefi folder on Yosemite thru High Sierra which allows me to edit my High Sierra disk if needed in Yosemite system.   There is no functionality of apfs in other versions but it does allow other clover bootloaders and systems to recognize the HS apfs drive or open it for inspection.   If you don’t have it you can’t see your HS drive or access it in another macOS version.
    • Hi! Is it possible to get codec AD1981 running with AppleHDA on HP Compaq 8710w? It works nicely with VoodooHDA. Speakers and HP are switching automatically.  Internal and HP mic also work - no switching in SysPref but it works when mic is plugged in and internal mic works when hp mic is unplugged.   It has same weird pathmap - connected directly:  Playback: nid=5 [pin: Speaker (Analog)] | + <- nid=3 [audio output] [src: pcm] bindSeq=00008001 nid=6 [pin: Headphones (Grey Left)] | + <- nid=3 [audio output] [src: pcm] bindSeq=00008001   But inputs are really weird. There are 5 nodes from input to HP mic/Internal mic nid=4 [audio input] | + <- nid=21 [audio selector] [src: mix] bindSeq=00000003 | + <- nid=12 [audio mixer] [src: mix] bindSeq=00000003 | + <- nid=30 [audio selector] [src: mic] bindSeq=00000001 | + <- nid=8 [pin: Microphone (Grey Left)] [src: mic] bindSeq=00000001 + <- nid=31 [audio selector] [src: monitor] bindSeq=00000002 | + <- nid=24 [pin: Microphone (Analog)] [src: monitor] bindSeq=00000002 Can pathmap like that even work with AppleHDA? What codec should I patch? I tried patches from AD1984 but no luck.    These are manually patched verbs: 00571c10 00571d01 00571e17 00571f90 00570C02 00671c20 00671d10 00671e21 00671f03 00771cf0 00771d00 00771e00 00771f40 00871c30 00871d10 00871e81 00871f03 00971cf0 00971d00 00971e00 00971f40 00a71cf0 00a71d00 00a71e00 00a71f40 01671cf0 01671d00 01671e00 01671f40 01771cf0 01771d00 01771e00 01771f40 01871c40 01871d01 01871ea0 01871f90 01971cf0 01971d00 01971e00 01971f40   Codecgraph and linux codecdump attached.

    •   Yes, 'cause APFS log is coming before clover boot screen.
    • and you suspect apfs on before clover issues
