hey, I understand that nvidia probably will not release osx driver for 1080/1080ti cards and Would macvidcard consider flashing service for 1080/1080ti cards for us who want to use it in bootcamped mac (windows 10) to take advantage of full pcie speed (2.0)  I have sent macvidcards an email while back with no reponse about this.

Thanks.

Card is already done.

Waiting on drivers.

(may need to adjust after(if?) drivers release)

what drivers you waiting for? The driver for windows 7 and 10 on 1070/1080/1080ti is already out that we can use in bootcamped mac. I dont think we will ever see OSX driver for 1070/1080/1080ti. Its dead end for OSX support from Nvidia on newest video cards it seems.

 With macvidcard flasing service for 1070/1080/1080ti, it will extend the life of mac pro for us who want to use in bootcamped mac (windows 10) to take advantage of PCIE speed at 2.0 and superior performance out of classic mac pros for seveal more years.

I do video editing and gaming on my bootcamped mac now (windows 10), hardly ever use osx anymore.

Please consider to offer flashing service on 1080/1080ti for those who only use bootcamped macs (windows 7 or 10) to take advantage of pcie speed at 2.0 and to add notes that customers understand that there is no support for osx drivers on 1080/1080ti.

Thanks.

AFAIK Apple have to release an OS update with the necessary *.kext file(s) to get graphics acceleration on NVIDIA's latest cards. I'm not sure if Rominator is implying this. Would flashing the card necessarily make it take advantage of a different PCIe speed under Windows.

Apple will never release drivers with Pascal support. They only release drivers with support for their own hardware. nVidia itself will have to be our saviour here. I thought they might have been waiting for the Ti to drop before adding in Pascal support, but that obviously hasn't happened yet, so it's looking pretty bleak for us on the OS X side.

Given Apple's had a penchant for going with AMD (presumably because nVidia refuses to hand over control of its drivers entirely to Apple and thus stop making web drivers), waiting isn't exactly a surefire thing. And Apple's notorious for only including support for their particular version of hardware in use, not the hardware class in general.

Tim Cook said they are prepairing something for the Pro market. Also some sources are saying NVIDIA are working together with Apple on some new products. So better wait.
