Is it possible to have a 5870 in a 2007 Mac Pro? August 19th, 2010 11:47 am. Hi the article describe that the 5770 also works in the mac 3.1 (early 2008) but the apple website say only for 2010 mac. Did anyone test the 5770 card on a early 2008 (800 Mhz Frontsidebus )mac? The Radeon HD 5870 Mac Edition was a high-end graphics card by ATI, launched in June 2010. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the Cypress graphics processor, in its Cypress XT variant, the card supports DirectX 11.2. The Cypress graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 334 mm² and 2,154 million transistors.

5770 and 5870 in MacPro and rom
I used efi rom from new imac’s 5750 and original 5770 pc rom to create custom hybrid rom.
Genuine Apple ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB Graphics Card for the Mac Pro (MC743ZM/A). Condition is 'Used'. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.One of the power connector has a minus damage but he still work it’s working perfectly but that’s the only thing that the car has. By adding the Radeon RX 580 to your Mac Pro, you'll be adding Metal support and gain the ability to install the latest macOS 10.14.x Mojave operating system. Unlocking advanced display features in Mojave that are unavailable with the original 5770 or 5870 video cards.
It works in osx, no injector used.
Since I used mobility ATI rom we have nothing from card on boot, but once osx booted – the card works.
Both dvi ports work, displayport works too, 3 displays doesnt work atm.
Once we have macpro’s 5770/5870 roms boot screen should work too. But for now you can already enjoy 5770 in your macpro.

It only works on 2008+ macpros, because efi is 64-bit now, not ebc anymore.
screenshots and the rom:
before flashing you also need to install driver.
