Hi all,

could you please tell me if i should expect NVidia Turbo Boost to finally work (and keep trying that is :) )for my GTX970 or is it just a waste of time? i run on the latest webdriver-30.107, i have previously tried every version rolled out for 10.13, everything works almost perfect except that the GPU does not go above 1000 mhz (when it should reach at least 1178 on turbo, based to gigabyte website-it is a windforce OC). also it doesn't go below 784MHz when in windows it drops to 136MHz.

my mobo is a MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) with an i7-3930K
all measurements are from HWMonitor runnin on High Sierra

thank you in advance

 

How are you determining that Turbo Boost isn't working?  Are you getting GPU clocks from the FakeSMC plugin?  These are known to be out of date and not read the correct clocks for any Maxwell or Pascal GPU.  In other words, it's almost certain that Turbo Boost is in fact working just fine, it's just that the macOS software doesn't know how to read the correct clock values.

 

Edit: Here's the source for the Maxwell part of GeForceSensors:

 

https://sourceforge.net/p/hwsensors/hwsensors3/code3/HEAD/tree/trunk/plugins/GPUSensors/GeforceSensors/gm100.cpp

 

device->clocks_get = nve0_clock_read;

 

NVE0 is the Kepler routine, which will simply read the wrong clock values for Maxwell and beyond.

I had this issue with Dual cards 1070. Seems that if you use 2 cards it will break OpenGL.

Only one solution was to use only one card, so if you disconnect one from your motherboard, it will work...

 

If you find another solution, let me know.

I've had this problem with dual Titan X's (Maxwell) since 10.13.3.  The only driver I've found that works with dual cards running MacOS 10.13.4 is 378.10.10.10.25.106.  I also have NividiaGraphicsFixUp.kxet installed as well.

Cuda isn't working on my native Apple MacPro 5.1 with Adobe and a NVidia 1050 (Premiere, Media Converter) too. With the latest NVidia Webdriver ( .... 30.107) and Cuda (387.178) i can select Cuda, and others hardware related setting in the main prefs, but when i start the recoding or export everything is grayed out. I will wait till i can make a clean install of MacOS 10.13.5 when it's out. I hope that new drivers or the new clean setup will solve this behaviour.

I'm on iMac pro 1,1 CUDA working only in Resolve I cannot chose and I don't even have the option to choose CUDA in AE and Pr etc.

This done after a clean install....I think it is related to some configurations/drivers from NVIDIA

Is there a fix for NVIDIA Pascal with dual (or more) monitors in High Sierra? I have trouble with two systems which cannot run two monitors simultaneously at startup, and even after hotplugging the cursors would stay on one screen or it's literally mirrored on both screens.

 

Systems:

GT1030 (HDMI + DP), iMac17,1

GTX1070 (4K HDMI, 4K DP))  MacPro6,1

 

Any help / link to a solution would be greatly appreciated.

Keep trying different combinations of ports (different DP, or trying both DP). I found only one combination of ports that lets me use all 3 monitors on my 1080.

I have an issue with all recent drivers that I've tested. At first, all is working normally after a fresh system start. Usually I don't shutdown the system but send it to sleep instead. After one or two sleep cycles the problems appear. It can be a video playback issue, it's impossible to start playback neither in a browser window nor in the system itself. The browser stops rendering pages and hangs on exit. The system becomes unusable.

What it could be?

@Allubz

To get multi-monitor working with your Mac models, use the NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext together with the Lilu.kext.

This works great on my iMac18,3 rig.Nvidia-DualDisplay.thumb.png.117fc5e480619e6bb70d7db9be937301.png

Hey guys! Any of you have the problem with nvidia PM? I have a quadro m3000m and the freqs stuck at max. Really annoing since it a notebook and fan is always at max so a lot of noise!

Or maybe there is a way (after years of web drivers) to enable native support?

Thanks!

Hi everyone.

Have been following thread(s) on nVidia for a while, and have used search extensively. There is a lot of contradictory information on stability of nVidia drivers.

Most say its not worth it. Some say it is?

Is that just down to variable, er, ability on building a hackintosh?

I have received my 8700k (Silicon Lottery, pre vetted) and would like the brains trust to suggest if I should bother with nVidia purchase:

 

1. Is it possible (30th May, 10.13.4b era) to get a single 1080ti stable? Especially with CUDA and Premiere and Media Encoder (AE)?

 

2. Is the driver "quality" better on the Titan Xp? - Is there less 'fiddling' to do on an Xp? (Or was that just a rumour?).

 

3. Should I just get a Vega FE 64? - Saw the undervolting threads, doesn't look too hard, but its yet another level of injection to support on every point update (probably?).

 

Am I in the wrong thread? If so, where should I post this?

Thank you Obi Wan Kenobi...

So what is new in 387.10.10.10.35.106? Seems to be quite a version jump, is there any info available, or a changelog?  Also how is the performance with this driver?

 

I also wonder if Apple optimized anything graphics related in 10.13.5? Cannot find any information here either...

Performance is the same in my rig.

I reverted to previous one for other problems

New Driver (387.10.10.10.35.106 (build 17F77) on updated MacOS 10.13.5 on a native MacPro 5.1. Still no hardware (CUDA, Metal....) acceleration in Adobe Premiere or Mediaencoder.

Installation like always: smooth. But also as ever, i need to use an old native Nvidia grafic adapter to boot up. Thats because there is a requester from Apple after the sstem update installation who did not respond to keyboard commands, only mouse. Not easy to hit the right spot it on three big and blank screens. ;-)

 

I don't understand why apple didn't include a small compatibility mode version of a pascal driver. Regardless of the partnership with AMD or something else. Just a starter paket to 'see' something. Anyway, system is up and running

10.13.4 was working fine with CUDA?

I just update CUDA for Webdrivers 07 and I have CUDA for Premiere and Media encoder

Maybe need to wait for CUDA update...I will test 10.13.5 when I get home and share the results.

Hi.
I have been trying to enable cuda in Premiere Pro, I have OS 17F77 and install the latest version of the drivers but I can not get it to work, any idea what can it be?

10.13.5 1080Ti * 2 + 1080, Web driver 378.10.10.10.25.106 works (OpenGL, metal, CUDA)

378 drivers work with a little noticeable lag. I removed NVFixUp and Lilu after several KPs when using Premiere, so far no more KP and I will stay on this version for now.

387.10 is completely unusable on my system. All OpenGL applications won't work. Chrome and Firefox are broken, also with random KPs.

 

Hope NV can come up with a USABLE driver for multiple GPU systems.

 

EDIT: Several days of heavy use, no KPs or other errors happened.

Guess 10.13.5 + x299 Build + Multiple GPUs + No Lilu & NVFix kexts + 378 drivers is a relatively stable solution right now.

Well,... No luck for me with the 387.10.10.10.35.106 version. Running an iMac (27-inch, Late 2012), NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2048 MB. Whenever I use the NVIDIA Driver Manager to use the "NVIDIA Web Driver" as opposed to the "Default macOS Graphics Driver", the system starts to boot up, then somewhat close to when the progress bar is at 50% the screen gets all jumbled up and the iMac freezes. Then the only way I can boot again is by reverting to the default driver using the command+option+p+r key combination during the boot process (hold them down before the screen first lights up, and only release them after the second beep). Thoughts? Suggestions?

I'v had a strange glitch with a latest web driver (for 17F77). My system is gigabyte mb z97x-ud7-th, 32 gb of corsair ram, 4790K cpu and geforce 980 with 2 x dell P2715Q over dp. Sleep isn't working for me, because of memory corruption on wakes. So I have system sleep disabled in settings and 10 min display sleep timeout.
After installation of the web driver update, when my display(s) was going to wake from sleep, system hangs. Display(s) switches on, show black screen for a moment, then off. System seems like working - blinks with hdd led at least. But had no more response for keyboard, trackpad, power button and remote connection impossible.
I tried tons of everything, replug the monitors, update clover, installed NVFixUp, re-install Mac OS  from scratch - no dice. Once I installed in custom EDID in clover, system behavior become even more weird - it waked once with no problems, then on second wake I get all the same :) Rollback web driver to previous version solved this issue completely. Hope this helps somebody to save a couple of hours of time :)

hi guys, anybody got an email from the Webdriver developers? got an issue with a dual 1050 ti setup.

Logic is crashing the window server, if i only install 1 graphic board all is running quite well.

 

using the beloved patched ...25.106 Webdriver, system is working flawlessly

It definitely seems to be a problem with dual nvidia cards. There was a previous post on using 25.106 for 2xGTX1080Ti, and I'm using 25.106 for 1xGTX980 and 1xGTX1080Ti. 35.106 no luck at all with dual (multiple) nvidia cards.

1. Boot with nv_disable=1

2. Reinstall WebDriver with new one here

3. Terminal: sudo nvram nvda_drv=1

4. Reboot mach.

 

Good luck.

Thanks for the answer .. Now I have the latest version ... I found that if I connect the monitor with the hdmi cable it works ... THE Problem is the display port !! I can not find anything about it ... I tried to set 1.1 but nothing

      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
