I can report that my MSI r9 280(non X) 3GB, works flawlessly under OS X, both Chimera and Clover. The only patch I applied was for HDMI Audio. Everything else worked OOB, both Mini Display Ports and the HDMI (have not tested the DVI).

Nice to hear people are having great success with the 280x

when everyone says it works flawlessly, does that actually mean that? for example, can it do 2560x1440 over HDMI for example? or do you need to use the DP port?

I can't confirm HDMI support above 1920x1080, I have my main display connected via Display port (2560x1440), Panasonic Plasma via HDMI. Both display ports can also be run at the same time (and both support Display Port Audio)

Has anyone gotten an R9 285 working?

Specifically I am looking to use the Sapphire Radeon R9 285 ITX version.

Can someone please post a thread with a table showing compatible gpus in order of most compatible to slight modifcation needed.

I need some absolutes! IS it pitcarin hawaii and tahaiti that is supported?!

nvidia included. Also pointing out 2k 4k support since 1440p is getting very affordable!

The best bet for the future would be to figure out what those bloody macpro firepros are!! we unlock that and we get lifetime support for our hackintosh =D im gambling its tahiti xt

I just posted the following before I foudn this thread. .....

I really want to know what radeon/nvidia cards run best out of the box?

I feel like the mac pro with its firepro d700 looks most like a FirePro W9000 which is ? retail version of w9000 should work out of the box? is it a 280x? 7970?

YEa did some research its a 7990 or 7970 so any tahati xt base card works native ?

did the mac pro bring any radeons native to yosemite that is relevant to us?
_______________________________________

Im glad I found this thread but I hate when you find what your looking for but its 78 pages of posts to sift through.

can OP update their first post with a summary of compatible radeon cards ?


LOL im lazy ;/

I need a gpu fast..

newegg has 290x for 220bucks =D selling out fast..

Also 4690k is 50 dollars off and ram is half priced.

My favorite black friday deal is a korean 27" 1440p ips monitor for 179 shipped!

I feel like I want a 970 really bad but I forsee radeons having better support than nvidias new silicone.

I would bet NO. the 285 is brand new silicone. conga or something .... Would be very intruiging and good sign of the future if it does work.

amd's answer to the 970 might work if the 285 works!


EDIT! the new imac is based on a tonga mobile gpu so 285 in theory would work perfect let us know!

MacOSX Yosemite 10.10 has support for AMD R9 290X and 295X... as they are the two GPUs available on the new iMac Retina.

NO

radeon m295 is not the same as regular 295. the m295 is amds newest silicone called tonga. the only thing even close to it would be the new radeon 285 tonga desktop gpu..

people need to find out if that works..

but form all my research the best cards to go with are the 270x. it is exactly whats in the new mac pro. frame buffer issues will hopefully be worked out..

i see the 280x and 290's working since they are all based off previous archetectures that apple has used before. like 7950.

Has anybody got the R290 working (not the x version). Though I haven't seen any guides, apparently it's just a simple kext modification (http://www.******.com/r/hackintosh/comments/2920fv/radeon_r9_290_vs_nvidia_gtx_770/).
