Is there support for the GTX 1080 in macOS Sierra? Will you guys be offering the GTX 1080 for Mac? I would like to upgrade my aging GTX 680, but I can't see myself spending money on a GTX 980 or 980 Ti since the GTX 1080 is such a better card in my opinion. Thank you.
No support yet. Nvidia has not released web drivers for Pascal (I.e. The 10-series). As soon as Nvidia releases Pascal support we'll hear about it here.
Any update or word on the pascal support? Is there a chance to start a petition request to Nvidia? I love their products and need to update a mac pro soon.

Subject: Mac-Pro:~ user$ sudo nvram boot-args="nvda_drv=1" - ERROR with 10.12
hi, i have ac pro 5,1 and disabled Nvidia driver with the normal terminal command that i always use to update. i installed 10.12 then updated my Nvidia web driver via their system preferences app which installed all fine but when i try to enable the Nvidia boot driver i get this error:
Mac-Pro:~ User$ sudo nvram boot-args="nvda_drv=1”
im running a GTX980 that you guys flashed for me a while back. any ideas?
It's different in 10.12
sudo nvram nvda_drv=1
but best way is to add nv_disable=1 to boot-args, then boot 10.12 with installed web driver, enable webdriver and remove nv_disable=1 from boot-args, then reboot.
I have GTX 980 Ti.
Updated to macOS 10.12, installed all lattes driver but CUDA doesn't work. What to do?
Indeed, there are no CUDA drivers for Sierra.
There is a message in the nVidia Preferences panel that says CUDA drivers will "follow shortly".
So probably don't rush to upgrade to Sierra just yet
CUDA 8 is now available
Just so I'm clear (as I cannot find idiot-proof instructions to do this), to upgrade to Sierra on a Mac Pro 5,1 with an Nvidia card (I have a GeForce GTX 680), I need to:
1) Use the NVIDIA Driver Manager in System Preferences to switch to the OS X Default Graphics Driver.
3) Upgrade to Sierra.
4) Install the version 367.15.10.05f01 Web Driver
It's not clear to me if I need to fiddle th nvram settings or not.
If there's a better way to do this or if this it completely wrong, please let me know!
The GTX 680 is not at all dependent on the Nvidia web driver, there is driver support built into OS X. Just switch to the default driver and upgrade to Sierra.
I use a gtx 980 on my 5.1
after the update on sierra and the nvidia driver update, it always falls back on standard os driver. Switch to web driver does not help. after every reboot the os standard driver is active. monitor refresh rate is really bad. what's wrong? I'm just a user. there is a manual for dummies?
Hoping to upgrade my 5.1 to a Titan. I see that one could work for Mac Pros up to 10.11.5. Excuse my newbie question but will this 10.12 driver make it possible to use a Titan?
yes older titans will work, not the latest Pascal one though.
Thanks! Now I just need to find one :)
OK so I think I found one, is there a detailed instruction or FAQ that I would need for installation? Once agin forgive me for the newbie question but I am not familiar with web drivers and such.
Can't use DELL 5K with Sierra
I already add the command
sudo nvram nv_spanmodepolicy=1
but seems doesn't work
Is there a way to change the boot order for an EVGA GTX 680? I'm trying to run off a single DELL P2715Q Display on dsiplay port, but my mac pro 3,1 won't boot without its 23 Cinema HD display in DVI along side it.
Sierra 10.12.1 Beta (16B2548a)
NVidia Web Driver 367...5b01
Just updated to MacOS 10.12.1 and Nvidia 367.15.10.05f01 is NOT compatible !!!!
Nvidia now has a new driver for 10.12.1 which seems to have the same number as its previous driver, but it does work with Sierra, at least it does on my system.
After loading it though the CUDA driver says it need to be updated, but there is currently no update available. It does look like the old CUDA driver is still working with the Web Driver though.
Mis-spoke. The number is not the same as the previous driver. The new driver ends with .15f01... Sorry. Comment about the CUDA still applies at the moment though.
Hey, just plugged my Dell 27 5K to a GTX980 in the latest cMP.. same problem here. Just two screens, 4K max etc.
The terminal commands mentioned here don't work, but i found this here: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/256138/trying-to-set-boot-args-with-nvram-gets-general-error-on-sierra
Maybe disabling that stuff will make them working again?
For OS Sierra, I first had to remove the RAID 0 from my bootdrive in order to boot into recovery mode, then I first had to disable the SIP with the terminal command, csrutil disable, then I followed the steps on the FAQ, and finally renabled the SIP with csrutil enable
