I have a dual-quad 2.26ghz Mac Pro and was using it with the 4870 card from Apple. It's a great box, even as it's approaching 4 years since I bought it, but the video capabilities of the 4870 were showing their age BADLY.

Like many Mac Pro users, we're on pins and needles waiting for Apple's newest system. Since it looks like it's going to be a while still, I wanted to bump the older system up and move the new card to the new Mac Pro when it comes.

My impressions of the 7950:

The card is a very nice looking white, full-length card, but is slightly shorter than the 4870 card it replaced. Packaging is on a par with what you'd expect with a commercial product. It came with a well-written users manual, a PC driver disc, a Mac OS X disc, two power cables (the card draws too much power to be powered only from the PCIe bus) and some random bits of paper.

Installation was very easy. Be sure to read the manual, because it will ask you to install the driver software FIRST. It's very simple, launch the correct installer for your OS (either Lion or Mountain Lion), reboot the system. After reboot, I shut the system down, removed the power cable from the back of the system, cracked the case, removed both power cables from my 4870, removed the card retention device, slide out the old card, blow out any dust, install the new card, replace the card retention device, reattach the internal power cables (or if you're upgrading from the stock card, install the supplied power cables in the sockets inside the system and attach them to the card, making sure they're firmly attached and click into place). After that, close the case, reattach the main power cable and power the system up.

The system worked without any changes or reconfiguration.

Despite what the product details say, I found plenty of other information that this card works with the earlier MacPros. I recently upgraded to Mavericks 10.9.1. I installed the card, fiddled for a while getting the two power leads connected, and then powered up by MacPro. Kept my fingers crossed and it all worked fine. No software to install - all the drivers seems to be there with Mavericks.

Installed on a 32GB Mac Pro (early 2008) with dual-quad core 2.8 GHz processors and OS Mavericks 10.9.1. No flickering, etc. X-Plane 10 is screaming fast with all the settings at maximum. According to AMD/Radeon - it doesn't work in this machine - wrong.

I installed this in my MacPro 2009. Easy installation, great performance boost over my 5770 and of course over the original Nvidia GT120. If you don't toggle the little switch (PC/Mac) to Mac, it still works fine, you just don't see the gray boot screen with the Apple logo. Toggle the switch and all is well.

Long term update after 18 months: had to remove it from my MacPro. It appears to lose sync randomly and that is very annoying. I removed it from the Mac and tested it in a PC and the same problem occurs. This card is now in my scrap pile.

I'm sing the HD 7950 to power a Seiki 39" 3940 X 2160 @ 30 Hz using a mini display port to HDMI active adapter, anApple 30" display using the d/l DVI port @ 2560 X 1600 @ 60 Hz & a ViewSonic 28" that is a 1920 X 1200 display but under Mac OS 10.9.1 it will convert the display to what it says is 2560 X1600 through the HDMI port. All of this with no problems. I'm also running anATI 3870 to run an HP 30" 2560 X 1600 display & a Sharp 10809 screen with the Displays panel saying that it is 2560X 1440. So like others here I have 1 splitter to run the 3870. This is all in a 2012 Dual 3.06 GHzMac Pro.

I tried to see how the HD 7950 would work under Mac OS 10.6.8. It would not power the 3840 X 2160 display but would power the Apple 30" & the ViewSonic 28" displays without a problem. I never tried to install any drivers with OS 10.6.8 & the word is that after OS 10.8.2 or maybe OS 10.9, no drivers are needed to be added. I would believe 10.9 as the card ran theUltra HD display correctly but tried to make it a 1960 X 2160 display & was totally unreadable. I did not downgrade the video card for this as I did not follow the directions & load any drivers.

Another person did not like the card because it would not power 4 displays even though it has 4 video output connectors. The directions actually says on all ATI video cards that they will only run 2 displays. But 3 is an advertised number if active adapters are used. As I only have 1 screen that has a display port on it & it doesn't like to work all of the time I have nothing to connect without an adapter to the Mini display port connectors without an adapter. So 3 is possible & 3 that is in general larger than 1920 X 1200.

Try it you'll like it. I'd recommend Mac OS 10.9.1 as another has said as this worked best. OS 10.8 will do & contrary to the Sapphire advertised it will work under Mac OS 10.6.

I purchased this product because it was one of the few video card options I had to upgrade my Mac Pro (mid-2012). The card is a little expensive for what it is, but when you need something Mac compatible you pay the price. I currently use this card primarily for video editing and graphics creation and it has given me a good boost in performance. I would recommend this to anyone working with Premiere, FCPX, or After Effects who wants a bump in their Mac Pro's performance.
