Dear Apple,


Could you please add hardware/graphics driver support for Diamond Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition (7970PE53GHZ) and Diamond Radeon HD 7970 (7970PE53G) graphics card support to OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.x


I needed a better graphics card, and need Mountain Lion drivers for the latest Diamond Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition (7970PE53GHZ).


Could you please add graphics driver support for this graphics card to Apple OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.x?  The video card works when I boot directly into Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8, but it doesn't seem to have the proper graphics drivers for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.


Can you please add graphics drivers support to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, so that the Diamond Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition (7970PE53GHZ) can be used with the Apple Mac Pro?


The GHz Edition graphics card can be found here: z.php


or here:



Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    As nice as that would be, APPLE is not monitoring Community forums, there is however Feedback page for suggestions.


    Or do what others do and seek out other sites and how-tos, or use Nvidia which the GTX 6xx are being supported.

    Usuallly it is the manufacturerer of the card that supplies the drivers. Apple is only responsible for supplying the drivers for the hardeware it offers or supplies with its hardware, it is not responsible to supply drivers for hardware that it doesn't offer, it is the responsibility of the manufacturuer or reseller.
