GTX 980 in a Mac Pro
Yeah, I ought to post this on a Hackintosh forum, but I know you guys.
I want a 970. It has the best cost/performance ratio right now. nVidia has a driver for OS X that works just fine and Windows will obviously work where the 4870 doesn’t (support was dropped in Windows 8/10 and it boots to 640x480). Plus there might be a deal on Black Friday.
Has anyone followed Hackintosh instructions and put a(ny) non-standard card in their Mac? Did you run into voltage issues with 8-pin to 6-pin power adapters?
Oh, and for Windows users with a Cinema Display (do they exist?), should the display work fine with a DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort dongle off a regular PC card? Because there aren’t any 970s with Mini DisplayPort.
EDIT: And on the subject of Cinema Displays, I’m sick of these things burning in. That’s right, it’s an LCD and I have a window shadow burnt into it. It’s plasma and CRT all over again...
