This is the last version of ATI OS 9 drivers dating January 2005.

Supported ATI Graphics Cards:

This software set also supports most ATI graphics built into many Macintosh models. It is safe to use both a retail product along with an existing built-in product with this single driver set.

Minimum Requirements:

** Some versions of the Radeon 9200 are not supported by this update, and require an apparently subsequent release.

Architecture: PPC

It does have an ADC port, so it is a Mac Edition. I appreciate your help. Thanks!

  It was already in my Power Mac G4 Sawtooth I got at a garage sale.

If its a Radeon 7500 card from a Mac, its been pulled from a later model G4.

Some cards may have a sticker on them (with a Mac logo)... these can drop off as they're only stickers.

But, if the card has a Mac ADC port (looks a bit like a DVI port but has rounded collar surrounding the pin-holes), then its definitely a Mac Edition (not a ROM flashed PC card). Also it will have an extra small set of pins between the front ports and the three main set of pins.

There is a good set of comparison pics here, look at "Vlask's card" on that page, his is the Mac Edition and clearly shows the extra pin and ADC port.

No idea if it's a Mac Edition or not. It was already in my Power Mac G4 Sawtooth I got at a garage sale. How can I tell if it's a Mac Edition?

@Sega dude: If your Radeon 7500 is a Mac Edition then I would assume they're OK to use. Also, the eMac ATI drivers (emac-ati-drivers-img.sit) on this page, should work if the card is a Mac Edition. The model eMac those drivers are for on that page shipped in 2003 with ATI Radeon 7500 graphics installed.

Does anyone know if this driver will work with the Radeon 7500?
