Mac OS X 10.11, also known as 'El Capitan' is certified with Sapphire 8 or higher only. It is not compatible with any version of Sapphire prior to Sapphire 8. All versions of Mac OS X that were made to run on PowerPC systems (with the exception of Leopard) had a Mac OS 9 emulation layer called 'Classic'. It allowed Mac OS X to run Mac OS 9 applications that weren't updated to run natively on OS X (known as carbonization based on the Carbon API).

OS X Mountain Lion was released on July 25, 2012 for purchase and download through Apple's Mac App Store, as part of a switch to releasing OS X versions online and every year, rather than every two years or so.
There is a drivers disk enclosed, but of course it would be dated by now, since it's no longer produced.
Sapphire 10 For Mac Os X 10.11
Does the card require newer driver updates for El Capitan?
Card boots and appears to run fine, although PhotoShop CC 2015 states 'Photoshop has encountered a problem with the display driver, and has temporarily disabled enhancement which use the graphics hardwire.. check the manufacturers' website for the latest software'. Checking Photoshop's prefs, it has Performance / Use Graphics Processor checked OFF (which is where the Graphics Processor to Accelerate Computation and OpenCL settings are)
Mac id for apple tv. I see threads from 2014 about OpenCL compatibility with the 7950, but those are dated and reference Lion and Mavericks.
Anyone have recent experience with the 7950 and MacPro5,1 in this regard?
