WebDriver-387.10.10.10.25.159 is working fine with my GF119 under macOS 10.13.4 Beta 3 (17E160e). Thanks  :)

Ok I retested High Sierra 10.13.3 with the .159 driver (haswell 4770, 1050gt) and compared to Sierra 10.12.6 with f06 driver:

 

- There is no microstuttering with the webgl water demo under high sierra. There is a little microstuttering with Sierra.

 

- Gfx performance seems to be a bit higher on HS than with 10.12.6 f06 driver

 

- High Sierra can lag more obvious on some actions, e.g. closing browser tabs can lead to short mouse pointer freeze. With Sierra the mouse pointer will never freeze

 

- CPU performance seems to be obviously lower with High Sierra than with Sierra, I assume because all those Spectre modifications (on haswell rig)

 

- I see no drastic gpu performance increase that Apple predicted. I guess because nvidia barely really supports metal 2 at all? 

 

- I hate the total lack of proper detail information from nvidia and apple. Go {censored} yourself

 

Summary:

- GPU performance is better with .159 than with f06

- CPU performance is better with Sierra

- Something still is seriously wrong in High Sierra (mouse freezes)

- There is microstuttering in Sierra

 

So who is to blame here? nvidia or Apple?

Metal 2 helps CPU-limited games, assuming they rewrite their engine to take advantage of the new features.  Given that the Window Server, Safari etc are not CPU-limited games, then it's not surprising that you aren't seeing massive improvements from High Sierra.

What is the last version compatible with Maxwell? I've been going "backwards" and I'm at 378.10.10.10.25.106 and it's still not compatible… :(

 

PS: I'm on a 770.

 

EDIT: It does work natively but it's been insanely laggy in 10.13.3 so I was hoping the Web Drivers would help with that…

On my rig, 161 web drivers is still lagging, bit less than 158 but still. Chrome works better and smoother if GPU acceleration is disabled. Comparing to 106, Window Server process is using approximetley twice as more of memory. Also i am unable to grab single window screenshot (CMD+Shift+4 than hit space) it gives me whole desktop highlighted, after that capturing error.
Also, display detection takes forever. Ie switching on tv, causes about 1 minute system freeze.

Good thing is, since version 156, drivers are support 60Hz refresh rate over HDMI (however i cant enable HDR/10bit color mode).

hi, is this driver working also with nvidia mobile ? I have a nvidia mobile gtx460m 1.5 gb on my laptop. I have bad artefacts using high Sierra, and system is unusable.  thanks

Does not appear to be any.  I don't really game on this side of the OS.  But everything else seems ok.  Minimizing windows, scrolling in browser, etc etc.

Lag seems to be limited to Skylake systems and newer based on everything we've seen so far.

If anyone is interested in testing, 

I've made a new tool to patch the webdrivers.
It does the exact same thing as the one I posted before, except now it uses dialog boxes.

I decided to redo everything because I lost the code from the previous ones and because I'm bored.

Downside: the script uses dialog and it will download and make the source if it is not present on your system.
For more info about dialog, see https://invisible-island.net/dialog/
Expect bugs.

Download: NVDAWebPatcher.zip

      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
