I got a Sapphire Radeon R5 230 and would like to use it in my flashed Mac Pro which used to be a 1,1.

usual steps, get device id, google if there are reports of it or pre-re-branding version working

OK, may I add that I am a complete newbie to that sort of thing, Upgrading my Mac Pro was my first step in this.

What is a Device ID and how di I find it?

Thanks.

Will this help me in any way?



    The Radeon HD 6450 uses a TeraScale 2 (VLIW5) architecture "Caicos" GPU with 160 shader cores operating at 625 MHz. Memory is 512 MB to 1 GB of either DDR3 or GDDR5 at up to 900 MHz. Specifications: Wikipedia, AMD.

    The Radeon R5 230 has the exact same GPU and differs only in memory speed. Memory is 1 GB of DDR3 at 1066 MHz on the reference card, although configurations with more memory or faster GDDR5 memory are available. Specifications: Wikipedia, AMD.

    Neither card has sufficient performance for modern gaming. You should consider an R9 270 or better instead.
