Hardware Compatibility

This is a component level hardware compatibility list. We want to keep it as accurate as possible, but please, do not entirely rely on this list when buying hardware. Add which parts you have working in the categories listed below, or create a new category. Please keep alphabetical order inside the categories. The categories themselves are ordered by popularity. Please list any caveats or problems as well.

  • ONLY add hardware that you have TESTED. Don't add hardware just because you think it might work.
  • Please add hardware into tables.
  • This is for 10.8.1 builds only.

For how to edit the Wiki, please see this thread. Thank you!

This will already make it work with QE/CI, but card shows as Radeon 4800 and doesn't interface well with monitor. Therefore:

  • Install a recent ATY_init (mine was of May 2011, but couldn't find the link I used anymore...) to fix this

Card will show up as 4870x2 (1 core) and fully work!
