If I update to 10.8.3 will the 7950 work natively?

    Ok so I read with 10.8.3 apple adds drivers for the AMD HD 7000 cards, so will it work?

    The point is by the time it leaves beta it may not support the 7950.

    It most likely will, but I wouldn't buy a card based on a beta piece of software.

    The point is actually whether a 7950 will work with 10.8.3 - not whether you'd buy a card based on a beta. Personally, I wouldn't buy a card based on a beta either but it wasn't the question. If I had a 7950 laying around, I'd want to try it.

    Have a look here Netkas there are screenshots and comments that are actually relevant.

    I have a Powercolor HD 7950 PCS+ and it works perfect with 10.8.3 beta. But no EFI ROM yet for this card and for 7970, so no bootscreen. I hope Nektas will be able to do EFI ROM for these cards, as he did for the 6XXX series.
