Nope, these versions are for iMac Pro 10.13.2 and 10.13.2 Supplemental Update builds.

Tons on tonymac complaining about it being a broken driver and yada yada. https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/nvidia-releases-alternate-graphics-drivers-for-macos-high-sierra-10-13-3-387-10-10-10-25.243857/page-4

However, everything they describe just sounds like unaccelerated window server caused by missing library validation. Yes, nvidia driver does work without libvalfix if it's pure and unscrewed with. but most hackintosh systems screw with it. I suspect user error galore over there.

driver working great on my hack. no "lag" issues here.

^^^^Working fine here too.  All we need now is the Cuda Driver. Cuda 387.99 does not work, and there is nothing newer - YET!

Mine was updated to 387.128 via system prefs. No link as of yet (one that I could find that is)

Apple won

The Web Driver is more fragile than it used to be.

I am now dealing with 1-2 people a week furiously sending cards back. Cards are A-OK on testing.

Real problem

But they have to do something about it, right?

I mean, how can they release eGPU support in next OS update and say "but it is only for AMD cards"...?

Apple is not responsible for the web drivers. It should be nVidias's job to fix them.

Actually, drivers have been fine for quite some time (at least for me on reference board GTX970, MacPro4.1, 10.12 to 10.13).
Apple, on the other hand, treating them like they're some third party software trying to harm your Mac - not cool at all.

Is it Nvidia's fault that macOS doesn't seem to care using GPU's potential in FCPX rendering when Maxwell or Pascal drivers get loaded?

HD7970 (R9 280X) gets immediately to 100% usage when anything needs to be rendered, while GTX980 and 970 never gets over 30%.
I'm still more fond of using GTX970 in FCPX because i can preview timeline with double the effects added than i can with highly optimized AMD.
And that's Nvidia's sole merit.

C'mon, we're talking about official eGPU support here and Apple is making it impossible for Nvidia to join the game.

I am intrigued, how can you see the usage of gpu, when in fcpx, with an nvidia card? I have a 980 installed and I would definitely like to know how!

Thanks

I'm using iStat Menus, you have two week trial, but I'm sure there are few other options that i haven't tried.
