just upgraded from Yosemite... and with the 387.10.10.10.25.156 version I have glitches after a while (10.13.3 - 17D47) with my gtx 660, hope they fix this

There is no solution at the moment for the GTX660 against artifacts on the High Sierra.

The Drivers works perfect

maybe your hardware not or some Clover setup  ?

See lots people report working great included me. so I think Nvidia doing great job 

It's so easy to determine what's what dear chris1111, I don't thinks it's my hardware or my setup because:

 

1. I have the same hardware as before. (WebDriver-378.10.10.10.25.104)

2. I use the same EFI folder as I did before (10.13.2)

3. With one version of macOS (10.13.2) everything works ok and web driver is working flawlessly (104)

4. After updating the macOS to 10.13.3 and the web driver to 156 all hell breaks loose

5. I'm not the only one whom is experiencing this crappy performance.

I am also experiencing much worse performance than the previous drivers (and even they weren't great).

 

It's a shame because a Pascal card should be a powerhouse, but it's barely functional. My display won't even wake from sleep when the OS turns it off now.

Yep  :( you're right and yes the Pascal Architecture is really something else , I thinks nVidia rushed the last release and neglected to do some serious testing of the new web driver.

I don't have artifacts with GTX660

my solution was to install the driver with SIP enabled (and than allowing the kext when prompted during install)

Tried it, but it didn't help. In fact I couldn't even boot into the OS and had to remove the kexts in single-user mode and reinstall, clear caches and rebuild to get the OS to even load again

SIP could be fully enabled using OsxAptioFix3Drv otherwise you'll get the Kernel Load Error.

I have SIP fully enabled with OsxAptioFix3Drv and I installed macOS and booted successfully into macOS and everything is working fine.

I'm able to boot in properly again now. Does it make a difference if I'm using AptioMemoryFix?

 

Edit: Ok, switched to OsxAptioFix3Drv and fully enabled SIP. Am able to boot into the OS with Nvidia drivers enabled.

 

However, performance is still abysmal, so I don't know if SIP matters or not.

Tested 2 980 TI, and both are not working, can´t reach the Desktop with 10.13.3. 

Only working solution is nv_disable=1.  

 

Old GT 740 ist working with apple and nvidia drivers.

I don't think having SIP enabled has an effect on the performance, because I been having SIP enabled for a while now and with the previous web driver I had no issues like we have right now.

.156 on fresh install working without problems..performance is aprox. 5% down, but other problem, the processor type disappeared before it was "Retina 5k iMac middle 2017", now it's just the "iMac" ... why?

I'm not sure if you use AptioMemoryFix it will make a difference I never use it.

But I guess you need to be cautious when using OsxAptioFix3Drv with combination of other fixes.

tested patched .104 web driver with 980 TI, and got only VESA mode.

 

no compatible GPU found.

 

singe GT 740 working perfect. 

 

with .156 and 980 TI it hangs at boot logo and i cannot reach the desktop.

 

and this is a boot with GT 740 and 980 TI.

 

GT 740 webdriver loaded, 980 TI not

Huh, so I guess I was going in the right direction then.

 

Anyone encountering the spinner issue with the Nvidia drivers and you're using AptioMemoryFix, try switching to OsxAptioFix3Drv. Wonder why it doesn't work well with AptioMemoryFix? Hopefully a developer can reproduce that issue.

Does the .156 driver still suck without AptioMemoryFix?

Yes, I'm using OsxAptioFix3Drv and it still sucks, laggy as hell doing basic stuff. I think it's the web driver rather than the memory fix

They didn't work for me either. At all (blackscreen and the dreaded IOConsoleUsers problem nobody wants to talk about). Not everyone has the same hardware anyway. Lots of us use X99/X299 m/bs, GTX1080 etc.

YMMV

For me I was running 10.13.3 with the .156 drivers with iMac17,1 smbios and it was very laggy.

I switched to macPro6,1 smbios and lag was still there but usable and bearable until new drivers are released.

I don't have artifacts with GTX660

my solution was to install the driver with SIP enabled (and than allowing the kext when prompted during install)

 

want to point out that i don't have SIP enabled and the drivers installed fine, i have no gfx lag, boot or speed problems just artifacts after a while and mostly they appear on web images and gfx programs (i'm using OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi with clover 2.4k r4391 and it happens with the official apple nvidia drivers as well).

 

I made a display override with my display edid as well in case that is the problem with the glitches but didn't help.

 

To test for glitches I run Geekbench Compute Metal benchmark and while running I load a pdf with text and images (macOS preview program) and scroll up and down ... after few seconds it shows glitches in images.

      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
