Nvidia Web Driver updates for macOS High Sierra (UPDATE 04/25/2018)

Recommended Posts

Mmmm.. to me it says "no driver found to built 17A306f" and does not offer any download option... I'm using NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater v1.5

Why only 24bit colour then?

Seems false to me.

@Slice told us somewhere that 24-bit is another name for 32-bit; both are same as seen also on Linux Display I guess..  :)

To install the driver i use os 10.12.6, After i upgrade to high sierra beta 3 and i patch it. the upgrade to high seirra Not work

i guess nvidia cant release webdriver untill high sierra GM release

 

They released webdriver for Sierra DB1 the day after its first build. Nah, maybe it is something else... maybe they have trouble with metal 2 or their interests are purely elsewhere.

 

Understand by that why updating drivers for macOS when Apple's no more using nvidia graphics cards??? This is the message delivered by nvidia with 10.12.4 webdriver (Nvidia Web Driver - 378.05.05.05f01) with Pascal support.   ;)

cool, i will try it this night


i think that in the worst case we have to please nvidia to release an high sierra web driver, like the community did with pascal support

What did you do different from all of us to get OpenGL and Metal working? I use the patched 10.12.6 WebDriver on 17A306f with my AORUS GTX 1080 Ti Extreme edition. Definitely no OpenGL or Metal support. Cinebench OpenGL Benchmark simply fails.

 

What I did so far:

 

1.) Download and installation of the patched 10.12.6 WebDriver from HERE

2.) Patch of the "NVDAStartupWeb.kext" with Nvidia WebDriver Updater v1.5 to "17A306f" (PB2 and DP3)

3.) "NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext" and "SkylakeGPolicy.kext" in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Others/

The Pascal GPU haven't acceleration for the moment.

And why that? The 10.12.6 Driver works fine with Pascal under Sierra...

 

I hope that the former quite weird and annoying Nvidia Sierra Pascal Driver driver story will not find it's continuation under High Sierra. It is anyway more than strange that no official 10.13 WebDriver has been released yet by Nvidia  :cry: ....

Just finished some extended chat with the Nvidia support hotline  :cry:

 

Apparently, the 10.12 Nvidia Pascal Web Driver disaster will find its continuation under 10.13 High Sierra  :wallbash:

 

The answer was quite clear. There is an ongoing dispute between Apple and Nvidia concerning contracts, rights and marketing policies... Currently he was not able to say if there will be 10.13 macOS High Sierra web driver support at all. But for sure it seems that there will not be any 10.13 Web Driver support in the near future!  :thumbsdown_anim:

 

Very deceiving news   :help:

 

Ironically, the 10.12.6 Web Driver workaround just supports OpenGL and Metal for Kepler graphics cards. Pascal and likely also Maxwell users have to live with proper screen resolution and basic video acceleration  :bye:  :blowup:

Ironically, the 10.12.6 Web Driver workaround again just supports Maxwell but not Pascal! Just bad luck?  :bye:  :blowup:

Is there some user with a Maxwell graphics card who is been able to activate meltal 2/opencl acceleration in any version of High Sierra?

I mean with old driver 10.12.5/6 hack?

 

From what I see only falcodj has acceleration from his grab and he uses a Kepler card

With my gtx 1080 ti I have no acceleration but only the chances to use cuda on a multimonitor rig (laggy OSX interface)

Uppps... I guess your are right... it was Kepler not Maxwell! In any case Pascal is not supported by the 10.12.6 workaround for sure..

I really don't understand what your mean is. I'm using pascal GPU and I think the web driver for 10.12.6 is working well.

Can you explain more detail ?

Did you read my post? I am not talking about the web driver for 10.12.6 macOS Sierra. I am talking about a the web driver for 10.13 macOS High Sierra, yet to be released! After having a chat with the Nvidia hotline yesterday it seems to be quite sure that there will not be any 10.13 macOS High Sierra Web Driver in the near future. The current workaround with the patched 12.10.6 Web Driver under 10.13 macOS High Sierra provides OpenGL and metal support just with Kepler GPUs. Pascal and Maxwell users have to live with basic support like proper screen resolution and basic video acceleration (no OpenGL or Metal support with Pascal and Maxwell under 10.13 with the workaround). The graphics interface therefore is quite laggy and e.g. causes glitches and partly missing resolution when moving or opening windows, etc...

I personally don't believe that support staff would have access to driver development timelines. As for 10.12 web drivers that support Pascal, no one knew they were coming until the news suddenly dropped and they were available a few days later.

 

I do believe that it may take a while for Nvidia to adapt the web drivers to suit Metal 2 and other changes in 10.13, which is perhaps why we have not seen an updated driver as yet. I don't see any reason for Nvidia not to maintain their drivers as High Sierra has such a focus on eGPU-related development, AR etc. which only broadens their market (IF they maintain their drivers).

"OMG, i'd thought i'd never see the day. Am i dreaming? Like seriously this can't be happening right now..!!!"

(are U sure? if what Nvidia means was Web Driver for macOS Beta, they already dropped it's support while ago << I just hope something like that. Cheers!)  ^_^

The one who looks the most stupid here is Nvidia. Why?

  • Apple made a big push towards Thunderbolt based external GPU enclosures and related advancements in macOS High Sierra.
  • Nvidia made a big announcement of continued driver support for Apple's operating system on Pascal hardware.

I bet Nvidia will have a beta driver ready by the time High Sierra launches around October 2017. If they don't, no one will take any of their support announcements seriously.

 

We can continue to use Sierra 10.12 for the time being.

      NVIDIA ha rilasciato i driver grafici per macOS High Sierra 10.13

      Questi driver sono attualmente l’unico metodo per ottenere l’accelerazione grafica delle schede:

      -Pascal   GTX 1050, 1050 Ti, 1060, 1070, 1080, 1080 Ti, TITAN Xp
      -Maxwell GTX 750, 750 Ti, 950, 960, 970, 980, 980 Ti, TITAN X


       
      Per disinstallare i vecchi WebDriver attenersi alla seguente procedura: 

      1.) Aprire l'NVIDIA Driver Manager nella voce della barra dei menu.

      2.) Fare clic sull'icona del lucchetto e immettere la password dell'amministratore.

      3.) Fare clic sul pulsante disinstallazione.

      4.) Fare clic su disinstalla e continuare con la disinstallazione. Riavviare il sistema come indicato

      5.) Installare la versione originale del kext AppleGraphicsControl.kext (solo se lo avevate modificato in precedenza) in / S / L / E / tramite Kext Utility

      Ignorate questi passaggi se venite da un'installazione pulita di High Sierra


      Per installare il nuovo pacchetto WebDriver NVIDIA 10.13 distribuito ufficialmente, procedere come segue:

      1.) Scaricare e installare il pacchetto NVIDIA WebDriver HighSierra 10.13.pkg Durante l'installazione comparirà un messaggio di errore, ignoratelo e continuare l'installazione finché non vi verrà richiesto di riavviare il sistema.

      2.) Solo per chi ha smbios iMac 15,1 - iMac 17,1 - MacPro 6.1 Prima di riavviare mettere nella cartella kext other NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext.zip, NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext.zip e Lilu.kext per evitare il problema dello schermo nero dopo l'avvio del sistema
       
      3.) In alcuni casi è necessario impostare nel file .config il SIP (CsrActiveConfig) su 0x3

      4.) Ora riavviate il sistema. Al momento dell'avvio del sistema, avrete il WebDriver Nvidia completamente funzionante con supporto OpenGL e Metal 2

      ciao, 
       
      Ho appena acquistato una GTX 980, ho due partizioni , una con Sierra . e una con Yosemite, su Sierra ho installato i Web driver , messo webdriver al config.plist e tutto funziona a dovere. In Yosemite ho fatto la stessa cosa, al riavvio  non sono  piu  riuscito ad entrare nel sistema operativo, ovviamente ho usato le versioni dedicate per ogni sistema operativo a meno che non mi sia confuso e ho installato i driver sbagliati. Per rientrare ho provato di tutto, safe mode, staccando l'nvidia , provando ad entrare con l'intel integrata, provato a cambiare SMBIOS dalla partizione di Sierra.
       
      Come posso rientrare nel sistema? ce un modo per eliminare i driver manualmente da un altra partizione?
       
      grazie
