Yep, Clover devs found an way to get  nvda_drv=1 working again. (Has to do that web driver not more using kernel flag , insted reading nvram value = chameleon hasnt nvram anymore).

Hi, anyone got NvidiaWeb drivers loaded with Sierra final?

Seems that  nvda_drv=1 not working anymore :(

Clover has some changes and use new way to get it working

Got it fixed using the nvram ... dlib (in /Extra/modules) plus the NvramFile.kext (in /L/E) and setting sudo  nvram nvda_drv=1.

I have GTX 980 and X99 platform. nvidia drivers working well dont use boot arg nvda_drv=1 on Mac OS Sierra . slice autor of clover write about that here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/304530-clover-change-explanations/page-2 last time when clover has been updated  "

Rev 3733

It was my mistake setting nvda_drv=1 flag as boot-args. No! It is NVRAM variable nvda_drv that can have a value "1".

So I make new config value"

 

    <key>SystemParameters</key>
    <dict>
        <key>NvidiaWeb</key>
        <true/>
    </dict>

 

thats all guys everything works :)

 

 

Hi, ony solution for CHAMELEON users to get the old  nvda_drv=1 work in SIERRA again?

I cant get (like in older OS X) the drivers loaded /used anymore :(

 

I have luck, because my gou GT 640 also works with Apple drivers but want to use Nvidia Web drivers.

Switch to from Compatibility to CORE in the head tap setting (second from the left).

Then you see which OpenGL features above 2.1 are available. Also the Summary info changes from 2.x to 4.x Driver - if your card can handle it.

 

So all OK! 

 

my gpu alkso would NOT show  2.1++ features if i use Compatibility vs CORE - thats normal and doesnt matter OS X version (10.x+) .

I think no, Image validation should be in green text (< 5% failed). Result(12430)  isnt usable to compare 

I think the luxball pic also looks not normal.
