Question: Problems with ATI Radeon HD 5770 In Yosemite and Pro Tools 11

Hi Everyone. I having a problem here with my video card. I have a mac pro quad core Mid 2010 with 16gb of ram using two displays which have the stock ATI Radeon HD 5770 video card. I have notice every since the update to mavericks the video card was not happy. Now I updated to Yosemite and it's still the same problems. Video playback is not working well. Scrolling in finders and online websites are very very jittery.And random lines appear on the screen (Major issue). And also I use pro tools 11. When i apply plugins in the software then scroll around. My meters and display needle gets real sluggish to the point I think everything going to shut down. But soon as I downgrade back to Mountain Lion, Everything works fine. See me I don't have lots of money to just upgrade all the time. I paid lots of money for my mac pro and they told me at the apple store that this mac will last me 10 years. So I took their word for it. With a wife and 4 kids, money don't fall of trees over here. So Long story short. APPLE PLEASE HELP US MAC PRO USERS WITH ATI RADEON HD CARDS CONTINUE USING THEM PROPERLY CAUSE FOR SOME USERS LIKE ME THEY WORK JUST FINE. PLEASE MAKE A UPDATE SOON TO SOLVE THESE ISSUES CAUSE I KNOW I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THESE PROBLEMS. Thanks Apple. ROSEWOOD

Have you tried running the system with only one monitor hooked up? I have a 2010 Mac Pro (24GB RAM) with the same card that works OK with Yosemite so far. But I only have one monitor attached.


In the meantime, if everything works with Mountain Lion, you can keep using that. I'm not using Mavericks, let alone Yosemite, for anything critical.

Thanks for the respond. Yes I tryed it with 1 monitor and still the same issue. I guess you got lucky. Me as a Pro Tools user I need my 2 monitors cause it gives me better work flow when working. I tryed the update to Yosemite cause I have some downtime in my studio. APPLE HEEEELPP!!!!!!

There are no know problems with the software for the Apple 5770 in the versions of Mac OS X you listed.


You may have a broken display card, or you may have one or more of many, many other problems.


Do not wait for Apple to fix this one -- unlike many others, this one is not their problem.

Ok Guy here is the deal. I did everything in the book. I even updated to Yosemite just to show the guys at the apple store whats going on today. they seen what I was talking about and was puzzled. 1 guy said somebody came up there last week with same mac with same issue. One of the genius stopped me before I left and told me to bring my make to the bar. He hooked it up to a ethernet cable and a screen popped up I never seen before on my make. He was running type of tests even an hardware test. Everything showed up great all working fine. So I don't know what to say. My mac is hooked up to a power conditioner to keep all my studio gear running great. Its like insurance to my gear. So like I said I really think its something with Yosemite.

And random lines appear on the screen (Major issue).

that is likely to be a sample defect of your particular graphics card. You should get a replacement card. You can run both 5770 cards at once and compare them.


My meters and display needle gets real sluggish to the point I think everything going to shut down.

There have been big additions to what Spotlight searches for, even in the background. You need to turn off the last few items for your Mac to be as responsive as it was under Mavericks:

Nobody wants to tell you to your face that this is likely to be a self-inflicted problem.You have probably added third-party stuff that is slowing down your Mac, like so-called Anti-Virus software or add-on programs that make changes to Mac OS X and slow it down.


Things you can do on your own are to run Activity Monitor, and look at the CPU display to see where your processing power is going, and whether it is actually all used up or there is still some idle time. Look at Activity Monitor Memory Pressure display and see if the graph is still all green, indicating no memory shortages.


If you want to talk about this some more, download and run this little free Utility called Etrecheck, which will list some things that might be slowing down your Mac.

This discussion will be here for a long time, and other Readers may find their way here by searching. Does everyone have to disable Beam Sync, or is there something special about your Hardware or software that means you do, but others don't?


If there is there an article, or a small group of articles that pinpoints the problem and its solution, could you share a link to it?
