Have you ever wondered why the ATI video card that came with your Mac doesn't have the same features as the retail card? For years ATI has bundled software with their retail cards that adds features and extra capabilities. This software, known as "ATI Displays," is designed to only recognize and function with the retail version of the video card. These additional capabilities are withheld from OEM card owners even though, in most cases, the cards are nearly identical.

Radeon Enabler patches the ATI Displays application to allow it to recognize some OEM video cards. Once recognized, additional features like the OpenGL/3D overrides more...

What's New

  • Improved detection of missing or corrupted localization resources
  • Enhanced the support file generation to include more detailed information from the System Profiler

This version does not add any additional functionality for previously supported cards. If you more...

This might be an unrelated issue but i am getting: "You have an old version of ATI TVout Kernel Extension. Some features are not available"

Anyone know where a new version could be obtained for a 7500 M? or a way to access all featues?

This alert is normal and nothing to worry about.

See the included Readme file or visit the Radeon Enabler site for more info.

will this work on my G5 DP 1.6? InfoMac says I have a Radeon 9600 (4150). Is this the Pro or XT version or am I out of luck?

Radeon Enabler supports both the OEM 9600 Pro and XT - see the supported list in the porduct description or visit the radeon enabler site at http://www.radeonenabler.com

If you have the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra (which was the standard card for the Dual 1.6 G5), then it's not supported (as it's not an ATI card).

Please read the ReadMe file included in the download. It contains installation instructions and a download link for the ATI Radeon Displays package which you must install first.

You did not look very hard, apparently. I don't even need the software, yet I could find it in less than 5 minutes.

I find all the extensions, but they are grayed-out. There is no app called ATI Displays.

You need to download and install ATI Radeon Displays 4.2.5. Once you do that, you'll have the ATI Displays.app in /Applications/Utilities/ATI Utilities

Please read the readme file included with Radeon Enabler. It contains installation instructions and download links to the ATI Radeon Displays package.

PB Aluminiun 1.25GHz (Radeon 9600M). Patch installed, ATI Display Utility opens (it says I have the wrong TVOut kernel extension), but I can't change anything... Any help? TIA

The TV-out extension warning is normal - read the readme file or see the site [ http://www.radeonenabler.com/trouble.html ]

You should be able to configure 3D overrides, but not Advanced or TV-Out. Once again, read the readme file.

Just installed this on a Powerbook G4 and works perfectly. Now have optimum settings for Jedi Knight and it looks much smoother.

Put your mouse down and applaud the coder!

Many thanks!

Ati Enabler works perfectly on my Dual G5 w/ ATI 9800. I am finally able to play games such as Max Payne and Warcraft with FSAA 8x and every other feature that I was previously locked out of.

I personally don't have use for this (owning a retail radeon) but the fact that it was made is a great thing. Needless limitations and hobbling for the sake of profit on computer products should be thwarted whenever possible. I applaud efforts such as these.
