    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    AMD just announced some RDNA2 workstation graphics options for the Mac Pro. Maybe the 6000 series will be supported in a semi-official capacity soon.

    NVIDIA Announces 'Pascal' Graphics Drivers Coming to MacOS

    This is very exciting. I'm happy for everyone who's been waiting for this for 10 or 11 months now. My primary PC has a Skylake 6600K and GTX 1070, so it'd be very tailored towards this. Maybe I'll have a look for myself.

    Apple Lowers the Price of Apple TV to $69

    I believe it's going to be a channel/app added to the aTV in a software update. But it's worth noting that your iTunes library can stream to an aTV - it's particularly nice for iTunes-purchased TV shows and movies, so you don't have to stream over the internet.

    I don't have a 960, but this is from a 2009 Mac Pro with the firmware hack, a 6-core CPU, and an eVGA 750Ti Superclocked: 2015-02-17 09:13:47> Logging is now active. 2015-02-17 09:13:47> OpenCL initialization... 2015-02-17 09:13:47> OpenCL : found platform Apple, OpenCL Version : OpenCL 1.2...

    Z97N-WiFi or H97N-WiFi with real Apple wifi/BT card?

    Right, I knew about them, and linked one in my post. My question was to see if anyone had successfully tried it.

    Z97N-WiFi or H97N-WiFi with real Apple wifi/BT card?

    If I have the real Apple wifi/BT BCM94360CD card for Handoff in Yosemite (which I do) and get a mini PCI-e adapter for it (which exists here:, will it work in the Z97N-WiFi's mini PCI-e slot? Thinking of shrinking...

    Yosemite Handoff-capable Bluetooth adapters?

    I would not actually recommend the "fix" in this article, but it's an explanation of why Wifi is sometimes ****ing terrible in Yosemite. I can't believe that we're now 3 months on from its release and it's still this broken...

    Do I need a graphics card with an Intel i5-4670 CPU?

    You don't need a video card, as rmonahan said, but I'm more on the fence about whether it's even worth buying a low-end GeForce 640 or something if you don't plan on playing games or using 3D apps. The HD 4600 is supported by Chimera, just refer to the install guide for more info, and they work...

    Intel G41 Express Chipset - kext required

    The only LGA775 boards that have supported graphics are those with the G30-family chipsets or lower (which have GMA3000 video). The 40-family chipsets have a later GMA 4000 series that Apple never used and kexts for OS X don't exist.

    White Noise - Intel HD 4600 - Dell S2440L

    I've had similar experiences, between white snow like the OP describes as well as going black. To the OP: I have the 21.5" version of that monitor (2240L) and it freaks out if I have an HDMI switch connected, and the same switch and same cables work fine on my TV. Red spots show up all over the...

    Where did the GTX 770 go from December Buyer's Guide?

    The 770 is getting harder and harder to come by (Newegg only has 1 in stock and it's heavily marked up - the rest are all out), and if you're comfortable setting the flags for nVidia's drivers, the 970 is a better choice at that price range.

    Clover (with 10.10) won't boot from Fusion Drive, USB only. Asus Sabertooth Z77

    If you feel the need to update, updating is going give you the same problem. I had to manually copy one of my EFI folders to the root of the main partition, install Clover, and then copy the EFI folder back to both hard drive EFI partitions. It's easy to get the versions and configurations out...
