Gtx 2080 has boot screens, they snuck it in while no one looking

Confirming report from EU

Now we just need drivers

very interesting Smiley

is this a full Apple EFI setup, enumerating all the NVDA properties in the device tree like a proper Mac card

or is it just enumerating the card just enough to work with the Apple graphics protocol and display a boot screen?

id be very interested to see what the card says in system profiler SANS drivers actually...

(In both Graphics/Displays and PCI Cards)

BTW is this from the create.pro thing or do you have someone else in europe confirming it? I know create pro has a less then clean track record so I am a bit skeptical of their reports

Great news, I can’t afford one, but greatnews none the less. I guess all the naysayers (including myself) can rest easy now   Wink

What a good year for the cMP this has been.

So Dave

You're confirming the video from CreatePro.  Everyone was skeptical, including me.  You, I believe.  Now all we need is Mojave Drivers.  Oh, and it's RTX 2080.

Man I hope this is also in the 2070, out of all the new cards that really seems the one to buy.

The Nvidia UEFI shows no sign of any IOReg properties, just the definition of EFI_UGA_DRAW_PROTOCOL is there, as I postet @ MR. So in macOS it's most likely behaving like a normal PC card (which shouldn't be a problem, since the Mac drivers can init PC cards for almost 10 years now). So we just need to wait for RTX drivers...
