Very nice driver update!
 
Anyone know if these work on 10.11.1? I tried the B07 drivers and they did not work.
 
Thanks

Also,
 
How did you find this out? :)


GM drivers are working fine for me on the 10.11.1 public beta. You need to manually install them with a tool like Pacifist, then make the 15AXXX to 15B edit in NVDAStartupWeb like before.

And that looks like output from the 'metalinfo' app that netkas released over the summer.

I did install them via pacifist. but, I did not understand how to make the change in NVDAStartupWeb as its a binary fine.

 

​The info.plist doesn't have that stated. Any kind of how-to or can you explain?

 

Also the tool to get the metal info: http://netkas.org/?p=1405

The change is in the plist inside the kext:

/System/Library/Extensions/NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents/Info.plist

Open it with any decent text editor (textmate, bbedit, etc.) and you should be able to edit the version it checks for, the specific key is:

NVDARequiredOS

default value: 15A284
change to: 15B

Many thanks!

 

I do see this now!

 

Hopefully there is no stability issues in 10.11.1 because on 10.10. its working wonderful with the new drivers

Lastest Yosemite Nvidia Drivers in 10.10.5, give me at least 50% more "power" than first Official Release for El Capitan. Nvidia GT440 .. Bad story ..

Hy,

 

I use 15B22c (10.11.1beta). I was able to use the latest web driver 346.03.02f01 only if i put the NVDAStartupWeb.kext in clover kext folder. If I modify on SLE location invalid signature error come up and do not load it. As do not know how to sign a kext I use this method. finally works.

 

In regard of Performance please see the attached pic. : Earlier fps was about 100-110 , currently 126-127. it looks a significant improvement.

 

metal :  please see the attachment 2. It means metal is OK, and supported?

 

Thanks for any comment.

 

Peter

What app are you using for the benchmarks?

Hy.

 

In regard of Metal I have no idea how to test especially the performance. The small tool posted here (metal.zip) can result a text output to show compatibility, but I do not know what we have to see to be sure 'metal is working'

Does anyone know of games and/or apps that take advantage of Metal? Does FCPX?

Yep, and Metal is designed in focus of devices with small/lower CPU power. Like iOS devices.

The goal is to reduce cpu task overhead of opengl = faster Opengl.

The slower the cpu the more metal will have an effect. The faster the cpu much less effect because the gpu itself is the bottleneck at fast i7 / Xeon systems.

The worst case for metal ist very fast multicore CPU and slow-midrange gpu = in this case sure less than 10% metal speed effect, were slower (iOS & CO) cpus the effect can be >>100% speed advantage.

So apps (and OS X itself) will not be all "metalled" in short time. They developer will first - and this make sense - use metal for their iOS apps and games.

Is there native maxwell support for el capital?   I think when I installed Yosemite I had to use Mac Pro identity the install web driver before it would work with my GTX 750 ti.

I have EVGA GeForce GT 740 Superclocked 4GB (P/N: 04G-P4-3748-KR) In"About Mac" VRAM show is 0 MB. So I install WebDriver-346.03.02f01.pkg but NVRAM still show as 0MB.  Do I need to edit Clover config to add as

<key>VRAM</key>
<integer>4096</integer>

Or i need to edit NVDARequiredOS to 15B? So i can have 4Gb in VRAM

if you are on 15B22c you will need to make the edit for the kexts to load
