Yep, that was eluded to earlier today by MR in this thread:
Mac OS X 10.6.7 Adds Support for New AMD Graphics Cards
I will wait to see some more from netkas.
I am currently clinging to my savings and crossing every appendage that this turns out to be the case and I can finally put a 6970 in this thing!
It's not a matter of support, the cards must have efi instructions for them to work, drivers is the easy part
Someone more educated on this will correct me but afaik ati cards have something extra on their rom that make them work with OSX. Unlike nvidia. I believe.
With 10.6.7 cards will work OOB (ie NO flashing!)
We are already on 10.6.7
Install the kexts from it (get them at netkas' site)
It appears to no longer need an injector and the kexts from the special build for Early 2011 MacBook Pros are available from netkas.
The out of the box part is of the most interest.
i take it this means AMD is already shipping with EFI roms on their cards, preparing for the future i guess, bios is vastly outdated.
I know this is me being my optimistic self again. But since the 6xxx are unlikely to show up in the iMac update, doesn't it mean the MP might get a smaller spec bump before Sandy Bridge Xeons are released? And that even before Lion?
