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
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.
