...for 10.8.4 I thought it might be better to just correct the os version as in : <key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
<string>12E55</string> instead of just leaving it blank...seems to work as well... :smoke:

There is much more needed than that.

Why are there two topics btw?

...no more needed here....nada...ziltch...your mileage may vary
...the 2 topics are definitely related...one started out as an announcement...the other is one possible solution to using the drivers...go figure... :smoke:

Ha, after all that I went back to the other drivers. The new ones dropped my Geekbench score by 100+ points on an eVGA 8800 GT 512.

The New Nvidia Web driver 313.01.03f01 installed perfect on my system with my GTX 680, all I had to do was after the installation put a kernel flag in chameleon plist nvda_drv=1

 

Novabench GPU score with 10.8.5 drivers : 486

 

Novabench GPU score with the new Nvidia Web drivers : 485

 

FYI: SMBios is set as Mac Pro 5,1 2010

Will this work on a GT240 GDDR5 on Mavericks GM? And how's the performance compared to the built-in drivers? I'm thinking about installing the Nvidia drivers but I'm worrying about ending up messing the installation.

You need someone else with a GT 240 card to answer that question. This means you have two options: Wait forever, or run the installer and see for yourself. :P

 

There shouldn't be any problems, but if the drivers don't work for you, you can always go back to the OS drivers. The Nvidia web drivers don't overwrite system drivers plus the installer includes an uninstall script.

 

Of course if you are using patched drivers with your device ID added, you will have to patch the nvidia web drivers in the same way.

That's reassuring, as I wonder if I could get more frames per second with them web drivers. The framerate in The Sims 3 was abysmal the last time I tried the game, but maybe it's the Cider wrapper that EA used in porting the game.

Hello !

 

I'm using a 8800 GT 512 Mb with no injectors, just NVEnabler64.kext with Boot Flags Npci=0x2000 & GE=No but the package says that my system doesn't have any supported supported card ! So no drivers installation, any ideas ?

I still don't understand what you're asking.

 

There is no official web driver out for Mavericks. The leaked beta driver breaks CUDA 5.5.28 and does not fix the OpenCL downclocking bug on the 660 GTX.

 

/EDIT - CUDA 6.0.26 Release candidate here

 

The way to modify the installer is the same no matter what OS you're running or what video card you have.

 

The driver is universal and works with the same cards that are supported by the original nvidia drivers.

Does it matter?
