List of NVIDIA GPUs supported in Snow Leopard 10.6.1
I compiled this list of what NVIDIA GPUs are supported in Snow Leopard 10.6.1 according to kexts, I think it could be useful to know what is supported and what is not. It doesnt mean it should work, it just means their device ids are recognized by the kexts, so with a proper injector method (kext, efi string, dsdt, chameleon) it may work.

The list is formatted as:

Device id mask


    Device-id  Core [Chipset name]
Older NVIDIA kexts NVDANV30Hal, NVDANV20Hal and NVDANV10Hal are not in Snow Leo, so it seems Apple doesnt support older chipsets than these ones.

thank you for this info :)

Gives hope for my GF6200 (0221)

Cheers! :)

HI Thorazine,

Could I impose on you to advice me how to use these strings? I am familiar with addding long strings to the boot.plist, but I am unsure how your string is used. I have a laptop with an nVidia GeForce 7800 Go card, and I cannot get the accelerated graphics in SL.

I do get the resolution with various strings I have tested, but I get no transparent menu bar, and my Cinebench score is around 200.

Please help!

Thank you very much.

thorazine74 10-17-2009 08:53 PM

These strings are not used in boot.plist, they are just the device ids of the cards recognized by apple's drivers, if your card is not there you would need to add its id to the plist, if your card is there and it still doesnt work the problem is something else like an incompatible laptop screen like some vaio's. What is your hardware, did it work in leopard?

elmangomez 10-18-2009 04:20 PM

Thanks Thorazine... My card is indeed in one of your lists above. My question is where do I put it? I saw that the list above says:


So I opened the
NVDANV40Hal.kext currently in SL's /S/L/E.. Then I added the string (to the plist) above to the <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> string. I added it to the beginning of the list there. Then I fixed permissions with Kext Utility.

Then when I booted, without a string in my boot.plist and GraphicsEnabler set to "yes" the card is not recognized. It only gives me one low resolution and no transparent menu bar.

The workaround that I am using is an EFI string for some other card which gives the the resolution options, but no transparent menu bars (which I guess means no hardware acceleration). I do a Cinebench test, and it benchmarks is the 200 range....

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks again,


thorazine74 10-19-2009 09:27 AM

What is your card's device id? You can see it in System Profiler. If its already in that list you dont need to edit the plist of NVIDIA kexts, you would only need to do that if your card's device id its NOT in that list.
Using chameleon GraphicsEnabler requires you to know what is the device path, it can be pci0 and pci1, if you are using the wrong one it wont work.
If you get the EFI String working it could be its not appropiate for your card, being a laptop card you may need to play with nvcap value inside the string, what is your laptop model and how many video outputs it has?
Alternatively you could try using a kext injecter like nvenabler, maybe you would get better results, you would need to run Snow in 32 bits for a better chance of them working, though I think nvenabler supports 64 bits now.
Any method you try remember it needs to be only one in effect, i.e. if you use an EFI string you need to disable GraphicsInjecter and not have any injecter kext like nvenabler and the like...

elmangomez 10-19-2009 02:48 PM

Thank you Thorazine.

My card IS listed above so I guess it is supported by the system. Code is verified in System Profiler. When I disabled GraphicsEnabler, had no EFI string, but I only got low resolution.

I then tried adding nvenabler. And the system booted to a black screen. I could tell the OS was running but nothing on the screen.

I then removed nvenabler and added these kexts, GeForce, Natit, and NVInjectGo. Also added GeForce7xxxGLDriver.bundle, GeForceGa.plugin, and GeForceVADriver.bundle. These I got from a bunch of packages I tried around, and I finally got resolution and hardware acceleration.

I am not sure if this is the ideal/clean solution, but it works...

Thanks a million for your help and advice.

good to all,

I need your help. I have a HP dc5700 with a nVidia Quadro NVS 290 and I am unable to install the corresponding kext, I tested with the nvinject natita titan .... install a kext and it allows me to change resolutions but the image from time to install the kext not sharp, they look pixelated areas of the image horizontally. According comentais this graphics card is supported by Snow Leopard, I would like to know whether Leopard 10.5.7 can be compatible and that is what I do. I've been reading and I think I might have to edit the Info.plist and introduce some code for this graphic. Could you help me? I'm desperate now. Thank you very much in advance. greetings
