Will have Pascal Titan-X screenies up soon, Should have Xp and 1080Ti as well.

Exciting time for Mac folks.

One last hurrah for 4,1/5,1 and another boost for eGPU.

It would be interesting to see if Mac Pro 4,1/5,1 CPU's (even the best ones X5690) would be a bottleneck for Titan Xp and if there will be any visible difference in performance between PCI-Express 1.1 (before flashing) or 2.0 (after flashing) on Windows. So powerful card might fully saturate the PCI-Express 2.0 slot.

Example for GTX980:

Pascal drivers are out, and they're not beta!

Downloaded and testing !

OpenGl on 4,1/5,1 may have hit brick wall, 1080 getting same score in Valley as 780 and Maxwell cards.

No CUDA yet.

Still exciting times

1080Ti and Titan Xp still enroute, just need to find my Pascal Titan-X.

whoa, that's weird, so there is a long way for nvidia to bring us the true performance of Pascal cards  Undecided

Well, I thought that with opengl being phased out what matters is either opencl or vulcan. I am not an expert, I could be very wrong.

No, you have to understand that OpenGL is dead and Apple's design has been terrible from the start, which makes it impossible for high-end GPUs to actually run at their full power.  Focus on Metal benchmarks if you want to see how well these cards are running.

the f1 2016 game has been ported to Mac with metal support. Maybe try comparing the results with both cards?

Initial testing shows metal performance is actually a little worse than previous driver. FPS is same but it feels like the caching stutter problem from before is actually back. did at least 3 hours of testing with wow and the game never really felt smooth as it did with previous driver. the micro stuttering and smoothness of turning camera was jerky like it was prior to the caching fix. It might not nessesarily be same issue but I'd still hope nvidia checks to make sure that fix was checked into the pascal branch of driver.

It seems only Sierra 10.12.4 is supported. El Capitan and older are stuck on Maxwell cards.

I cannot get my ASUS GTX 1080 working on my Mac Pro 2009 (5,1), Sierra 10.12.4
After installing the latest web drivers and rebooting it does not activate the drivers (it says no kext loaded).
I am only able to see something using its original AMD GPU and the GTX as second card.
With only the GTX, it boots, but then I can only connect ssh from another computer to check, no video. And also screen sharing, it connect but then only spinning disk, no graphic.

I do something wrong? Doeas the GTX 1080 only works on a hackintosh?

99.999% of these issues are operator error

drivers & power cables

OT but anyone know a supplier of supplemental PSUs that fit in the 5.25 bay?  The SFP BoosterX5 is no longer made and neither is the EP flavor of the same thing.
