I'm on the fence whether to get a flashed card or not.

I purchased a GTX 1080 ti primarily for Windows gaming, but tossed it in my Mac Pro 4,1 (updated with 5,1 firmware and Sierra) once I saw a driver was available.  I don't know if it's just me, but I'm barely hitting 54 FPS with Valley, and 62 FPS on Heaven benchmarks at 2k resolution.  Sorry, it's the biggest monitor I've got, so can't test 4k and higher.  I'm sorry to say Borderlands 2 still has a lot of "hesitation" when playing, especially on maps with unlimited sky.  Tomb Raider is hitting 58 FPS @ 2k at the high setting; I'd like to know how BareFeats is getting 99 FPS with a GTX 980 ti.

From my point of view, I'm having a hard time justifying my continued support of the macOS.

You're probably the first customer with flashed Pascal card - congrats ;-)

I recently bought a Gigabyte Windforce 3 fan GTX 1080. The model I bought was the G1 Gaming card. I'm not a gamer. The primary reason I bought this card was it was the fastest GTX 1080 card that Gigabyte sells that has only one 8 pin power connector. I was running a GTX 780 (also MVC flashed) with two 8 connectors. Two of the pins were shorted on each connector so I could run with the stock double six pin connectors. I wanted to reduce my TDP. The 8GB of memory was an added bonus.

I bought my card from Amazon and had it shipped directly to MVC. He kept it for awhile, until the final flash was completed, and I received it yesterday. I am very pleased with the card, it is fast, and quiet and, of course, having the boot screen is a big bonus IMHO.

Screen redraws while fast before, are now lighting fast. My UPS has a display and my total watts for all devices plugged into it are now between 30 and 50 watts less than they were before.

The only difference with this card, vs my previous 2 MVC cards (a GTX 570 and the GTX 780) is that during boot there is a 2 to 3 second period of black screen. It starts about ½ way through the process and the screen return to life about ¾ way through. Boot Picker is still available so, it's really no problem for me, but something I should mention.  It's the result of the transition between EFI and the OS.

This card also has a Fan Stop feature, where the fans stop spinning when not needed. There is a visual readout and I can view it through the cheese grater ventilation screen.

Test Results are over at MR.

Needless to say I'm am extremely pleased with everything.

I mistakenly put the GTX 970 for MacPro 2008 into the BIOS for Windows, so I can not go back to Mac.
Is there any way to switch to BIOS for Mac somewhere?

There is a way, send it to Dave, and get it flashed back to an EFI Firmware Grin

Otherwise, just use the nVidia Web drivers to use the card under OS X, without a boot screen from the card.

If you haven't done backup, then sadly no. It's a PC card again.

No opinions?

These nVidia webdriver and cuda packages install fine on an 8-core 3.24 GHz cMP3.1 running 10.12.4 using DosDude's hacks currently with an AMD RX 460.  I wonder if pulling the 460 and adding a GTX 1080 would boot and produce interesting results?

testing it now, it's not fixed. i might be better than it was, but still performs worse than 367. i'm still getting a noticeable amount of micro stuttering that I do not get with older driver.
