Add GraphicsEnabler=Yes to your boot plist. (you should be running GE=Yes anyway!)

Hey, this link seems to be down sadly, does anyone got a working link with that guide?

I got GraphicsEnabler set to yes but my HD 6870 still shows 6xxx.

My org.chameleon.Boot.plist looks like this:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
    <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
    <string>Yes</string>
    <key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
    <key>IGPEnabler</key>
    <string>Yes</string>
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
        <string> PCIRootUID=1</string>
    <key>Legacy Logo</key>
    <string>Yes</string>
    <key>Timeout</key>
    <string>2</string>
        <key>GenerateCStates</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
        <key>GeneratePStates</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
        <key>UseKernelCache</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
        <key>Graphics Mode</key>
        <string>"1920x1080x32"</string>
</dict>
</plist>

The link is to the old tonymacx86 forum which was replaced with the current forum s/w in July 2013, IIRC. We kept the old forum running for over a year to help the transition, but that link is no longer available. Not surprising since the post is from 2012.

I'm running a 6850 in an older Z68X system using GraphicsEnabler=No with both 10.9.5 and 10.10.3.

If you're running Yosemite, then your org.chameleon.Boot.plist file needs the kernel flag "kext-dev-mode=1" too:
Code:
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>PCIRootUID=1 kext-dev-mode=1</string>
You can add it via a text editor and reboot or run MultiBeast for Yosemite just selecting:
Customization > Boot Options > Kext Dev Mode​
Note: this is for Yosemite only.
