Note: Because of the introduction of the Macintels, this list can also be used for hardware that you have tested with the new Macs! Just make sure that you let us know you're using it on an Apple machine.

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 10.4.6 builds only.

Hardware Name Manufacturer Notes Fully working without patching Chipset
AX8 2.0 Abit Everything works fine except SATA RAID (VIAATA charge only IDE ???), Sound with AC97 text from 10.4.3 (only left channel no spdif) No  

[edit] Processors

Please include different processors only. There is no difference beetween a 2.4 GHz P4 'C' and a 2.8 GHz P4 'C'. They both have Hyperthreading, FSB 800, SSE2 and 512KB L2 cache.

[edit] Sound Cards

Please specify the number and type of audio in and out channels. "Yes" is not a complete answer! Incomplete information about the supported channels is crippling home media center users. Unless the data is entered here, it is nearly impossible to locate short of testing every piece of equipment personally.

Use /Applications/Audio MIDI Setup.app to explore the capabilities of your sound hardware. Anybody can test 5.1/7.1 analog out - even without "surround sound" gear. Just plug standard stereo speakers/headphones into the other channels one at a time and use Audio MIDI Setup to generate test sounds to verify they're working - it only takes a few moments.

[edit] Graphics Cards

Please specify if your card is AGP, PCI or PCI-E.
Also, please try to differentiate chip and board manufacturer (i.e. "ATI / Sapphire" or "NVidia / Gainward").
Note: For NVidia users, visit http://macvidia.starchaser.org/ for updated drivers.

[edit] Wireless Network Cards

Please write the chipset and the chipset vendor, not the board maker. (ie. do not write Dlink or linksys here, we are looking for names like Broadcom, Ralink, Atheros, etc.)
