Easy, breezy install if you had the older GM with Beta webdriver.

With a 960 on a 5,1 I literally had no trouble at all.

The Beta worked on the GM, and then the Nvidia control panel downloaded the FINAL 10.12 driver.

Thank God that Nvidia isn"t letting Apple turn their machines into bad jokes as quickly as they want to.

(Before you get too excited, still no Pascal kext)

On the further good news front, despite claims from the "Soiled Captain", Maxwell cards have gotten an OpenGl speedup recently. Used to be a GTX780 had same Valley scores as Titan-X, now the Maxwell cards are 10% faster than they were.

Thanks again, Nvidia.

The TitanX will definitely outperform the GTX 780 when it's installed in a recent Hackintosh. It's not like the drivers "can't use the hardware" or something like that, the CPU overhead in OS X is just very high. A Skylake machine with high single thread performance "solves" that.

Does the beta driver work? When it comes to updating to 10.2.1, I intend to install the beta Nvidia drivers, then 10.12.1 then the proper driver so as to avoid installing/removing the gt120

Yeah, I changed the final driver to just match for "16" instead of "16A323", works fine on 10.12.1.

Is it Possible that this driver work with El Capitan with edited NVstartup.kext to match the Version Number to the Actual Version?

I guess someone already answered this, but I'll just double post. I had serious issues with my Nvidia Drivers when I installed Sierra. The Web Driver neglected to kick in. There is a good workaround though.

1. Zap PRAM (google if you don't know how to).
2. Open the nvidia plug in system prefs.
3. Open the lock.
4. Change to Nvidia Driver.
5. Click the lock again.

Restart.

Now you should be all fine.

Nvidia today released Cuda-8.0, but so far for linux/windows only.

Releasing Cuda-8 for mac would have a sense alongside pascal support.

UNIFIED MEMORY SUPPORT ON MAC OS X

In addition to Pascal support in CUDA 8, CUDA 8 platform support for Unified Memory expands to Mac OS X. Now developers using Macs with NVIDIA GPUs can take advantage of the benefits and convenience of Unified Memory in their applications.!!!!!!?Huh??

Cuda 8.0.47 for Mac available here:

https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads

I just downloaded the dmg.  I'm away from home posting his on my MBA, so I can't test it out.  LMK how it works.
