I'm positively surprised.

My R9 280x works OOB, no kext editing, no nothing.
Everything works from boot onward, integrated GPU is now entirely off.
The only setting I kept from my original HD4600 setup was the forced initial resolution of 1080p (not even sure whether this is necessary, but it sure doesn't hurt).

Card: Asus R9280X-DC2T-3GD5
System: 10.9

Correction: everything works, including HDMI audio, my settings in the display were all funky ;)

:) Those are the news I was waiting for, I created a post specifically to know further about this R9 series AMD GPUs and I certainly believe those are the best price you can get for the dollar, furthermore now that Apple goes with AMD it's a win win if it works out of the box. So I am assuming according to what I understand and you have managed, that your R9 280x works as easy as it would be to make work a GTX 780 or whatever Nvidia cards which are the ones that have shown the most straightforward compatibility for the moment? You did not have to do the workaround AMD 7xxx series card need to be done with your 280x so they can work on a hackintosh?

If that is so, those are great news, we could literally buy 2 280x and destroy a GTX 780 performance for the same price.

I'm on Mavericks 10.9 and I didn't have to do anything except to disable my integrated GPU, period. No workarounds.

Hillariously... It took me over 2 hours to get it to run stable in windows... as a tip 13.11 beta driver is spectacularly awful, if you're running windows go straight for the one delivered with your card (13.101 in my case)

btw System Report is showing the card as Radeon 7xxx, and if I remember correctly Cinebench showed it as a FirePro... Hmm

Great news. Very glad to hear all of this. Cant wait for UD7TH to be released and finally build my PC. I really hope Sapphire Radeon R9 280X Toxic works right out of the box as well - its the one Im getting (if/when its in stock again) - the best R9 280x out there (my opinion).


  • factory overclock of 1100 MHz for the core
  • 1150 MHz boost
  • memory is also overclocked to 6.4 GHz (effective)
  • looks bitchen (viva 1980's)

WWOOOOOHOOOOO!!!! So I just updated 10.9 on my machine (specs below) and I can say that the 7970 ghz edition OC from gigabyte is fully functional and does not have the white screen issue. I do have to enable the IGF as primary in order to get that to show up in the system report/be able to use it with the 7970 but i'm having no difficulty at all... I love this machine! Now that I don't have to do the sleep/rotate trick it is awesome!

That's a really nice card, but I hope you're ready for the noise, trust me... this thing is at full load like a jet engine.

I wish dwood on overclock forums was still making custom brackets for Corsair and Antec water coolers...
Imagine putting an H80 on a 290x...

the r9 is the loudest component, otherwise my pc is whisper quiet.

hmm, didnt realize that - could be a problem, thanks for mentioning... :think:

being that its intended purpose is for editing video, when running Pro Tools it wont/shouldnt be needed or taxed. meaning pro tools is just a daw and isnt heavily gpu dependent (shouldnt be at all really). noise would definitely be a problem with PT

are you saying that it always runs at full speed? I know that sounds like a retarded question, perhaps it is, but I did not realize if thats the case. this would mean that the fans would be 100%, 100% of the time power is on... ? w/ pro tools that would be a serious issue - unusable
