So my laptop is a Dell Precision 7510 with an AMD Firepro w5170m (which is a amd m370x). The hackintosh is working perfectly (except the intel Wifi, going to replace the wifi card), I have full graphical support (which is awesome!) but my system says it's an AMD Radeon HD 7xxxx, because I am obviously not injecting anything. The way I am getting graphical support is I grabbed the "AppleGraphicsHD7750.kext" from the AMD compatibility page on the forum and that got the ball rolling. I would just like to inject everything correctly and there really isn't much support for the m370x... because their is like only one pc laptop with it haha. But there is a Macbook that uses the m370x so I have hope! I looked up some info on that Macbook and the graphical Device ID was 0x6821, while my computer is showing 0x6820. I don't even know what framebuffer I would inject?? Also the system won't awake from sleep and I haven't tried it yet, but I doubt the HDMI out port would work. It's honestly not make or break for me because I am getting full graphic acceleration, but I would like it done right.

Here is a image of my system and whats going on:

from https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/read-me-first-graphics-setup-troubleshooting.183617/ :

"Note: You might notice that the system profiler shows a generic string instead of the name of your graphics card (e.g. „HD 7xxx“ instead of „R9 280X“ or "R9 xxx" instead of "R9 380X"). This is purely cosmetic, no need to worry."

The w5170m is basically an overclocked r9 m370x, wich is basically an HD7xxx (it's a bit more complexbut allow me to semplify this way).
So i think you're good =)
