Hi! Some days ago I installed ML on my computer (with dualboot) but today I made a benchmark with Cinebench to se if everything was correct.
I have one GTX 560 Ti Top for GPU and i7 3930K as CPU. Everything worked well after the installationen, the only thing I needed to do was to install the networkdriver and then everything was working perfect.
In system-preferences it says unknown CPU with 3,2GHz and GTX 560 Ti OpenGL.
In Cinebench (11.5) I got 9,10pts in CPU and 32,77fps in OpenGL. I dualbooted to my PC and did the same thing but this time I got 10,98pts in CPU (that's ok) but 52,20fps in graphiccard! That's a huge difference!
So I wonder if anyone else here has 560 that have got the GPU working good in ML, if I have to install/activate anything to get the full power of the GPU, if it will always be this different or if it's something about OpenGL?

Thanks!

Not sure what's going on with yours! I got 48,97 with mine. All I have for my 560Ti are the kexts from Mountain Lion DP3 and NVIDIA's Cuda.

(Mine is an MSI NVIDIA GTX 560Ti 2GB)

My card is a Asus GTx 560Ti Top 2gb. I haven't installed any kexts because everything seemed to work in the start, osx saw it was a 560. I bought ML from appstore so that's the build I have. Does the DP3 have different kexts? If so, where can I get the hands of them? Would love to get my 560 to at least 48 like yours :)

My 560Ti was not supported from install. It was actually quite a nightmare to get it working until I found the DP3 kexts. (When I say nightmare I mean impossible, lol. ) Check here - http://www.insanelym...dpost&p=1838367

But after I installed those, it worked flawlessly. Do you have the Cuda drivers installed as well? I don't know much about it honestly, but everyone says it has something to do with getting the most out of NVIDIA cards. Didn't test mine without it, so I am not sure what it would have been if different at all without Cuda.

When you told me about the Cuda I rememberd I forgot about installing that so I will try that first. If that doesn't work I will try your kexts and hope for the best :) Thanks!
