    List of Confirmed AMD Radeon HD 7xxx Series (10.8.3+)

    NOTE: If you're on 10.9.3, try using Chimera 3.0.1 and either GraphicsEnabler=No or GraphicsEnabler=Yes (only if GE=No doesn't work), and don't use any other setting that would affect the graphics card. This seems to be a successful combination for using AMD cards with no fuss.

    Hi all,

    As many of us know, OS X 10.8.3 brought support for a wide variety of Radeon HD 7xxx Series cards, but there's no official list anywhere of which cards work. Since a lot of people have been asking, "Does [card name] work?" I figured we should get a list of successes (and failures) going for people to reference.

    If you have a Radeon HD 7xxx Series card, please post your type of card (i.e. 7970, 7950, etc.), the card brand, its specific model, the device IDs, and whether it worked or not so we all can have an idea of what we can use.
    Also, if you had to do any kext editing, post what you did, too, so we can make a note of it here.

    For example:

    Type: 7970 (OC)
    Brand: MSI
    Model: R7970-2PMD3GD5/OC
    Device ID: 0x67981002
    Status: Working Out of the Box (no kext edits required)

    Important Note about White Screens (+ Workarounds):

    There is a special issue where you might get a white screen instead of the login screen on your Radeon HD 7xxx Series card. If this happens, you generally need to sleep your hack and wake it up [or do this screen rotating trick (thanks dwbr!)] to fix it and proceed normally. This white screen issue only goes away currently if you have a 2nd graphics card (or an integrated graphics option) you can use in addition to your Radeon HD 7xxx under OS X.

    List of White Screen Workarounds Known So Far:
    • If you can sleep your hack and aren't bothered by doing this at the login screen on every boot, do the sleep trick.

    • If you do have integrated graphics, you need to set it as the primary video device in your BIOS/UEFI and set it to "Always Enable" or "Enable," depending on your motherboard (if you have a Gigabyte board, though, you may need to set the integrated graphics as primary as well as "disabled" for some reason). You won't see a boot screen with this workaround unless you have a monitor specifically attached to the integrated graphics, so don't think it's not working if nothing shows up until the login screen on your Radeon HD 7xxx.

    • If you have another supported graphics card, just set that as the primary video device in the BIOS/UEFI, and put a monitor on it to see the boot screen.

    For multiple monitor users: You may need to follow Prosaca's little edit to that workaround here, as you may need to rotate each screen connected to the Radeon HD 7xxx.​

    Clean Install 10.8.3 With Only a Radeon HD 7xxx Series Card:
    "But wait! I want to clean install 10.8.3, and all I can use is a Radeon HD 7xxx Series card!"
    That's ok! Thanks to MK500, there's now a way to clean install OS X with only a Radeon HD 7xxx Series card installed!

    I think it would be better to list model and device ID for what is and isn't working.

    Here are all the device IDs from the ATI7000Controller.kext with the model numbers from AMD's developer site and www.techpowerup.com:

    Thanks, I've updated the OP, and added Amazon links to make it easier to find them.

    Thanks!
    Updated the main guide.

    I think your card is a Dual-X model, not a Vapor-X model. Could you check and make sure I got the right Amazon link?

    Thank you, sir!
    Do you have the device ID for that?
    (A picture of the card selected in System Profiler would do the trick.)
