Apple update hints at future AMD Radeon HD cards

Posted on Thursday, March 24 2011 @ 22:09:45 CET by

Apple Insider spotted that the new Mac OS X 10.6.7 update supports new, and even some unreleased, AMD Radeon HD graphics cards - hinting at inclusion in future Mac computers.
It's likely that at least some of the cards will be part of the new iMac refresh expected from Apple in the near future. A new rumor this week claimed that Apple plans to ship a refresh of its all-in-one desktop by early May, with Intel's new Sandy Bridge processors and a high-speed Thunderbolt port.


The Mac OS X 10.6.7 Snow Leopard build unique to early 2011 Sandy Bridge MacBook Pro models apparently contains native support for the following graphics cards:
  • ATI Radeon HD 5630 Device ID 0x68D8
  • ATI Radeon HD 5630 Device ID 0x68D9
  • ATI Radeon HD 5670 Device ID 0x68D8
  • ATI Radeon HD 5730 Device ID 0x68D8
  • ATI Radeon HD 5770 Device ID 0x68B8
  • ATI Radeon HD 5850 Device ID 0x6899
  • ATI Radeon HD 5870 Device ID 0x6898
  • AMD Radeon HD 6850 Device ID 0x6739
  • AMD Radeon HD 6870 Device ID 0x6738
  • AMD Radeon HD 6970 Device ID 0x6718
