Now save picture works fine Preview.app (driver: 346.02.02f02) (GT610)

 

 

But Safari crash repeatedly   :wallbash: iMessage also

So delete this driver, I have the same video card, and now I'm using official os x driver, and it's just fine. I think gt 610 video card is not so strong and official driver will be good enough, especially if you look at the benchmarks - there are not so many differences between the web and official driver.

new Nvidia Drivers (346.02.02f02) are buggy, keep or reinstall older beta driver (346.01.03b01) in 10.10.4 !

 

346.01.03f01 is also not recommended !

I agree, even with 346.01.03f01 sometimes I had problems with sound delay on youtube.

Yep, the f03 driver seems to have fixed the crash bugs for me as well.  I'm going to use this one since the performance is way better than with the stock Apple drivers from what I've seen.

This, ..f03 driver has signifikant (10-25%, depending on gpu type) more OpenCL speed in some OpenCL benches. Even on my older Fermi GT 440 gpu.

In the past OpenCL speed has mostly not changed by driver updates.

OpenGL extension viewer reports a 50% increase in performance with the f03 driver and my 750 Ti, moving from the 2k to the 3k points and Unigine Heaven reports a solid increase of 50 points as well!  This is the best performing Nvidia web driver so far!!!

I´m using a Hackintosh i7 4790K (Gigabyte Board with Ozmosis BIOS) with 10.10.4 and a Asus Striker GTX 760 ROG. After installing the nVidia webdriver the GPU fan is running full speed after a few Seconds after the Desktop is booted up. Any idea? With the orig. Apple Drivers there is no Problem.

I can confirm that, seems indeed to be faster across the board. Nice! Only minor issue still remaining is wrong reporting of fan speed (aka 19RPM). But not sure if this is actually a fault of the driver. (though it works correctly with the stock driver)

I solved the problem with 100% fan Speed of the nVidia Card by using their Webdriver. I simply installed the latest FakeSMC with all 4 plugins in /S/L/E and now I see a lot of sensors more as before. Including GPU. And the fan keeps quiet. :D

 

I´m using the Ozmosis BIOS. The FakeSMC inside this one doesn´t recognize all Sensors of my System.

Hi,

 

I would appreciate some help. I am on Mac Pro 1,1 / Yosemite 10.4, with the 346.02.02f03 Nvidia driver (up-to-date as for now), on a Nvidia GeForce GT640.

This card is a PC card, so I don't have Boot screen. It is also not supported by Apple on the last officially supported OS (I believe it is 10.7 Lion).

So if I have a problem with a Nvidia driver I can't reboot easily in a supported OS

Everything is fine otherwise.

 

In the past I had trouble updating Yosemite, which was due to incompatibility with nvidia driver. I can't really remember how I sorted it out. But this makes me cautious.

 

Today I wonder if I can safely update Yosemite to 10.10.5 with my current Nvidia driver.

I tried to update first the nvidia driver, using the beta provided by MTWomg (#517), but is will not load under 10.10.4

 

I don't even know if I can deactivate the current nvidia driver, use the OS X one, update Yosemite to 10.10,5 , then update the Nvidia driver.

I don't know either if the current 10,10,5 update replaces the modified bootloader (coming from pike https://pikeralpha.wordpress.com/page/5/), Ineed to use 10,10,4 on my old mac, and if the pike bootloader will work with 10,10,5 (though I presume so as the 10,10,5 is quite light at around 100MB).

 

Any idea ? 

 

Thanks

Puuh, with DP drivers I just experienced GPU crash on my mini...

14.8.2015 14.27.57,000 kernel[0]: NVDA(OpenGL): Channel exception! exception type = 0xd = Graphics Engine Error (GR Error 5)
Damnit! The first time this happens with WebDrivers.

Also, Upon installing the 10.10.5 final, to my surprise I found out that web drivers were loaded - update didn't replace NVDAStartup.kext with Apple's own.

Now to f01 driver...

I updated to 10.10.5 and had to update Nvidia Drivers as they were not compatible with the OS Version.  After I updated the Nvidia Web Drivers and rebooted I no longer had video signals on any of the outputs of the video card.  I can Screen Share in to make adjustments thankfully but I guess its time to wait for another patch.

Which version you had installed? I had the one before f01 and installed 10.10.5 without a trouble, it even left nvdastartup untouched... Installed f01 afterwards, as 9400 overheated again... Now, i have 8 pieces of nylon M3's with bolts, and 16 washers. Time to tear it apart and apply some ceramique2.

Prior I was running 10.10.4 w/ 346.01.03f01 and was running ok.

After updating to 10.10.5 and then 346.02.03b01, also gave f01 a shot and it isn't working right.  No video on boot.
