Intel GMA 950

Recommended Posts

The Bad:
As of Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, Apple has completely removed support for 32-bit kernel extensions and the new kernel no longer supports booting in 32-bit mode. As you probably know by know, most GMA950 drivers that were provided by Apple were 32-bit extensions and therefore will no longer work with OS 10.8!

The Good:
Apple has included 64-bit drivers for GMA950 in the OS X 10.6.2 update. These drivers can be used to provide partial support for GMA950 under OS 10.8

The Ugly:
The drivers are painfully slow especially at higher resolutions. System animations lag, full screen videos are almost unwatchable, flash videos are not working properly.

The "partial" fix:
Use the 10.6.2 extensions attached below to get resolution changing and QE/CI. Install using kext wizard or whatever other utility you like. You still need DSDT or EFI string injection.

The real fix:
Well... I think its time for an upgrade. A cheap nVidia GeForce 210 or ATI Radeon HD5450 will get the job done perfectly if you have a desktop PC. Laptop users however, are out of luck this time.
