Hi , since 10.11.2 i'm experiencing issue with photoshop cc 2015 ( up to date ) ...I have to deactivate open CL under photoshop to avoid artefact on the picture when i'm working with almost all tools ..I already report that to Adobe and they told me that it was a problem with nvidia web drivers ...I also sometimes loose completly my photo which turn in a black screen and i need to clik somewhere on the screen to get it back , and the screen is blinking to , all that under photoshop only ..I didn't try FCPX yet...I have a X99gigabyte ud4 , gtx970 i7 5830K  smsbios 14,2 and running know 1011.3 with the same problem...Do you know how i can report to nvidia as i couldn't find the right forum on their site 

best regards

 

why do you use a smbios 14.2?

because i tried other one and couldn't pass a black screen at the start ...I'm a newb talking hackintosch .that's my main computer with the one i do retouch professionnaly and i use what is working . I'm quite sure it's not the best but afraid of spending time make it work with another smbios. if you have a guide to give me i'll try it 

i just tried to change smsbios to Macpro 6,1 using clover configurator modifying my config.plist and saving it .Putting it back in EFI and replacing the old one ..After rebooting it still show and imac when i go to about my computer ...!!! seems that no change have been made...i know i'm getting out of subject of this thread sorry

Hi, I have a notebook ASUS N56JR. I have installed with success El Capitan 10.11.3. All Working but I have only a problem with kext of my dedicated gpu (GTX 760M). How can installed

driver with success? I tried without success.. Help me please.

P.s I must boot with nv_disable=1 if notebook reboot.

no way to get optimus prime working under OS X neither with web drivers. 

mmh, is possible... but this depend by the bios: if you can disable the IGPU you can, otherwise no. Or the bios can be patched to unlok advances menu and then after, play with internal-discrete grhaphics setting. 

The second option is a big risk in a laptop..

we're talking about laptop - you simply can't.

 

the optimus feature requires integrated gpu (switching feature) - no recent laptops have this option enabled in bios (uefi) for a good reason.

 

now you can have recourse on a patched bios - I did it for my laptop aspire E1-771G... I have this option enabled but if I disable intel gpu, my laptop can no longer boot.

Right, in an Optimus configuration, the discrete GPU has no physical connection to the display.  The display is always driven by the integrated GPU.

Who say that? The wire is the gpu soldered in the CPU die...

My Notebook has NVIDIA enabled, drivers loaded.... simply the Display is not connected (ACPI) related.

@Micky1979, fantomas1

I did not understand much. So there is no way to properly install the nvidia WebDriver in my laptop ASUS N56JR without pach bios? Perhaps, it can be a problem setting the DSDT or config.plist? thank you!

Optimus works by driving all displays via the Intel iGPU.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nvidia_Optimus

 

 

Optimus avoids usage of a hardware multiplexer and prevents glitches associated with changing the display driver from IGP to GPU by transferring the display surface from the GPU frame buffer over the PCI Express bus to the main memory-based framebuffer used by the IGP. The Optimus Copy Engine is a new alternative to traditional DMA transfers between the GPU framebuffer memory and main memory used by the IGP.

 

Anything rendered by the discrete GPU is transferred across the PCIe bus and displayed via the iGPU.  The NVIDIA drivers on OS X don't support this (yet?) so that's why the discrete GPU doesn't work on Optimus laptops running on OS X.

Sorry Asgorath, but if you look better on what have you wrote, is not Optimus that does not have phisycal connection, simply avoid to use multiplexer   :whistle:

Since Sandy bridge comes out PCIe Bus is connected to the NorthBringe (nothing new), the NorthBringe is embedded directly in the CPU and that have an integrated GPU... how can't be a connection??

Linux use bbswitch (Bumblebee project)  to switch GPUs and as I said use ACPI calls, explained here:  https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/bbswitch.

Then, I agreed that the bios does not allow to switch GPU by default, is difficult to patch, is a risk, but as demostrated by @wartomato is possible. In a hack only a driver is missing.

PCIe bus != display connection.  My point is that Optimus configurations have no direct connection between the display output of the discrete GPU and either the laptop's internal screen or the external display connector.  The integrated GPU is solely responsible for driving the displays, the discrete GPU cannot do that.  That's what I mean by "no physical connection".  In order for the frames rendered on the discrete GPU to be shown on screen, they have to be transferred back across the PCIe bus so the integrated GPU can send them out to the display.

PCIe bus != display connection.

off course, display connection = ACPI related,  as for any other drivers in OSX that populate the Platform expert. Reconnecting the speech earlier, discrete cards with Optimus technology can work in OSX as demonstrated by @wartomato, it's just another hack. Drivers in OSX are ready to go, like the Web variant ones. I mean, no other things matter..I hope that we were talking about this

So on 10.11.3 + official drivers it seems Final Cut Pro X is now fixed. Incase anyone else is wondering about this.

 

Still broken on 10.11.4… :(

What's broken specifically?  I haven't had any problems with the latest driver, can you give details about what's going wrong for you?

Bug: "Counter Strike: Global Offensive" doesn't work, i get "Failed to create OpenGL device!" error

 

 

 

Do you think NVIDIA will add Vulkan support in their web driver?

      Hi,
       
      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?
       
      CPU: AMD Ryzen 2700X
      MB: Gigabyte Aorus X470 Ultra Gaming
      Memory: 4x8 GB HyperX Predator, 3000 MHz Cl15

      Greetings!
       
      So I managed to get a Catalina 10.15 vm up and running in ESXi 6.7u2.
      When I try to install Catalina updates, however, it goes to the Apple logo, status bar moving ever so slightly, reboots again and this time hangs on the Apple logo.  To fix this, I either remove or disable "Mac OS" as an option in the bootloader. Is there a way to get these updates to install? 
       
      In the meantime...
       
      I instead of restarting Catalina after choosing to update it, I shutdown the guest.  After a restart it SEEMED to update with the time duration countdown.
       
      Prior to this I did run disk utility and checked Untitled and Untitled-Data for errors (I don't think it found any).
       
      So I just logged back onto the VM and the version is still 10.15 and NOT 10.15.2 as hoped. So weird.
       
      Any ideas?

      Clover r5101 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r5101 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5101-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.
