    will this AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB GDDR5 work for PP CC on a macpro?


      im on an 8 core macpro - 4,1 (2.93ghz Nehalem), with an older ATI 4870 (512mb's)


      PP CC works but there is no hardware acceleration so i dont get very far once i drop a few plugins on with the CPU's already maxing out. now with PP CC playing friendly with OpenCL will the "AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB GDDR5 " show up for GPU acceleration? i see thats its approved for "Windows" but not in the Mac list.


      i was almost ready to get the Mac approved GTX 680 but now im wondering it the above 7870 would work decently.


      hope someone can answer this. id hate to order the card only to find out it wouldnt work.
