Purpose

This Wiki article is a place to track all tested graphics cards, successful or not.

Be as specific as possible with methods of getting full acceleration (Quartz Extreme (QE) and Core Image (CI) for everything tried. For a detailed explanation on what QE/CI is and how you figure out if you have full graphics card acceleration enabled, see QE/CI Graphics Acceleration.

Additionally, clues about compatibility may be found in the Graphic Chipset Database.

Make sure you follow the correct wiki formatting and please insert your entry in the appropriate location (in order).

Unsupported Cards

These cards are unsupported by Apple, so fixed resolution and no video support

Integrated

Working Cards

These cards work using either the drivers Apple ships or with a hacked versions. Note: this is not an exhaustive list, and many cards are currently working besides the ones listed here.

HIS 4350 ATI Radeon HD Yes Device ID=0x954f Tested in Snow Leopard OSX 10.68 *combo update v.1.1 and Mac OSX Lion 10.7-10.7.2 using Multibeast 4.02 KernelCache option "No". You have to add card DeviceID to Info.plist inside ATI4600Controller.kext as 0x954F1002 or you can copy from uploaded in this link and install ATY_Init.kext into /System/Library/Extensions. make sure npci=0x2000 is also inside your org.chameleon.Boot.plist example in this link. then put ATI4350.Fix.v2.kext from the zip files inside /Extra/Extension Do not forget always repair permissions before reboot. Use Kext utility appropriate with OSX will make it easier. *credits to alexmathayes.

After success loading with full acceleration, to make Lion boot faster with cache, type this command inside terminal , because if we use KernelCache option on org.chameleon.Boot.plist value into "Yes" it will not work. All VGA port working, VGA, DVI, HDMI *unless audio hdmi.
