    Im afraid I can't help you out. I read some guy got it to work in El captan. But I don't know of anyone getting it to work in Yosemite the same way others have got the 290x to work patching the 8xxx and x4000 Kexts with fake id. And Baladi fb. Check on reddit. That's where I saw that. Good luck!

    I have the GIGABYTE R9 290X WindForce 3X OC 4GB running under OS X 10.10.3.
    Works out of the Box with EFI-Boot-Partition, it is detected as AMD Radeon HD 8xxx 4096 MB.
    I am currently using DVI, DP not tested.

    Can anyone confirm that this card works with 10.10.4 out of the box?

    MSI Graphics Cards R9 280X GAMING 3G
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FR6XPL8/

    I just wanna make sure I made the right choice to change my current graphic card,
    mainly for editing on FCPX.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not included in your chart; the HD 6670 works OOB as well. Mine does anyway. I've included the BIOS dump if you need it.

    I haven't been able to get your BIOS decode working. It always returns, "rhdAtomGetDataTable: No AtomBios signature found".

    This post is a little old, would love an update for newer os? has compatibility increased?

    I am having lots of trouble trying to boot in yosemite with an ATI 6950, tried everything but canot boot without -x and even them it works without acceleration and very laggy. tried different customizes kexts but nothing. these kext fail to load at booting.

    Any help would be very much appreciated been trying non stop for 3 days and about to give up and buy anothe GPU.

    This thread isn't old. The original post guide is dated 08-29-2015.

    You're running an uphill battle. Apple never supported the AMD/ATI 6900 series graphics cards...that's why, when you look at Fl0r!an's guide (post #1), he states for the 6900 series cards "very buggy, not usable at all."

    Perfectly normal, should work OOB with 1 screen at a time.


    Looks fine but way to expensive IMO. The price is already GTX 970 territory.

    Thanks, I'll update the table later and have a look at your issue.

    +1, sell that card, isn't worth the trouble.

    Can confirm that this card works OOB

    GIGABYTE Radeon R9 380 GV-R938G1 GAMING-4GD 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready ATX Video Card
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125793

    Using Clover both DP and HDMI work in 10.10.5 OOB. HDMI audio was not tried though as I use the Onboard audio.
