FYI for those interested in the Sapphire HD 7950 Mac Pro Version.

The card ships with OS x drivers for OS x 10.8.2 and earlier. 10.8.3 uses the embedded 10.8.3 drivers.

Will we ever be able to do this without using an integrated / secondary video card? I'm currently short on backup video cards but it would be nice running OSX on my HD 7870. :)

Cheers!

Any idea on when Chimera will be updated to handle the 7xxx series? I have a 7870 and I have to blind boot, which basically makes it impossible for me to boot windows.

Hi
I have a Gigabyte HD 7870 and I dont get it working.
with the bios settings above it doesnt work with display at motherboard and with the display connected with the HD 7870.
Do I need to have a special bios version? I have the Gigabyte z77-ds3h rev 1.0

I tried for really long, but i dont have any success.
Please help me

I have the same board as you with a XFX HD7970 working. It only work if i enable the internal graphic. Of course, leave the Init display first to IGFX. Then, you need to have one monitor attached to the board and another one to the Radeon in order to get the bios. I have a monitor with two DVI-D, so i can switch easily. Good luck!

Thanks I´ll try soon. I have 1 dvi and one vga at my monitor. hopefully i can make it :)

I tried, but didn´t get it working. after chimera there didn´t come the bootcreen.
is it because of the vga kable? i had it with an adapter at the hd 7870.
