Since upgrading to Sierra and the new Pascal driver, I noticed strange corruption on Messages depending on what GPU I'm using to display it on. On my Mac Pro 5,1 system, I have a Titan X (Maxwell) and regular Titan card in slots 1 and 2.

On the Titan X, Messages displays normally (contacts fuzzed to protect the innocent):



while on the regular Titan, Messages content area is corrupted:



Anyone else see this kind of behaviour before?

MR is already getting the handwringing "Oh my GOD what do I do?" posts from folks hitting the "update" button while their brain was in Neutral.

Got my first Sierra 10.12.4/NVidia 378.05.05.05f02 kernel panic today after running fine since the driver's release. Looks like it came from the Nvidia graphics driver. I was just moving my mouse around when I noticed that the cursor movement was no longer smooth but quite jumpy/glitchy, then KP!

I'm running a Maxwell Titan X in slot 1 and a regular Titan in slot 2 on a Mac Pro 5,1 with 96GB of RAM and 2 X5690 CPUs.

Its reported to work, though no one has had much time to test it. I'm waiting for the release.

Well, I updated this morning, and not as difficult as I expected. I had previously downloaded the Combo Updater from Apple. I modified the Nvidia kext. I then updated the OS with the Combo Updater. Got to the desktop, I then downloaded Nvidia's driver 378.05.05.15f01. I then restarted and got to the desktop. I then found the latest Cuda 8.0.83 and download that. No restart necessary. And BOOM, everything's updated, and my cMP 5,1 is running smooth as silk.

BTW, I'm running an MVC flashed Gigabyte GTX 1080.

With EFI cards you don't need to worry about much.

You can update OS, you will reboot to unaccelerated desktop (1 screen only)

You will know that Nvidia driver not running because screen will be choppy, black stripes will go up from bottom as CPU draws screen instead of GPU.

Shaking windows makes a mess. BUT...you can run the Nvidia Web driver update for new OS with ease.

This is one of big benefits of the EFI cards, painless OS and Web Driver updates while the unflashed folks are juggling cards and running scripts and modifying kexts.

A new bug has been found with the nvidia web drivers. Apparently the little snitch 4.0 network monitor window does not work with nvidia web drivers. It renders a blank/transparent window instead. Little Snitch 4.0 came out yesterday. Apparently only ones having the transparent/improperly rendered window are nvidia web driver users. It'll be interesting to see who ends up addressing issue first.
