Isn't that an older webdriver? 

@blache

 

Go to the First Page of this Thread and get 387.10.10.15.15.108.  <<---  This Driver is HIGHLY recommended by Flowrider/Lou, and he states that it works for ALL High Sierra Versions.  I don't personally know if you need to modify the DSDT File or NOT with this Driver.

 

Personally, I'm on the latest Driver, (.122), and have no issues on my Hackintosh, (iMac 18,3 Profile), NOR on my Real Mac Pro 5,1 Mid-2010 System.  [EDIT:]  However; like Lou, I use Mac Flashed Video Cards.  My Hackintosh uses a MacVidCards' GTX-1070 8GB GDDR5 VRAM Card as Primary GPU, and has an EVGA GTX-1050 2GB GDDR5 VRAM Card as Secondary GPU.  My Real Mac Pro has a Mac GTX-970 4GB GDDR5 VRAM Card I got off e-Bay and is my Primary GPU, and has an EVGA GTX-1050 2GB GDDR5 VRAM Card as Secondary GPU.

 

I do Scientific Number Crunching on both Systems using the BOINC Application.  (Berkeley Open Infrastructure Network(ed) Computing)  Under this App, I Crunch SETI@Home, Einstein@Home, and Collatz.  I use the latest CUDA Driver for SETI@Home, the other Projects utilize OpenCL, and due to NVIDIA Web Driver Limitations, ONLY the Primary GPUs are able to Crunch Einstein and Collatz.  (OpenCL is STRIPPED from the Secondary GTX-1050 Cards on each System.  This is a Driver FLAW!)

108 does not exist, cannot find it. I still do not have a clue what to do. My Mac Pro keeps on toggling back to the default macOS driver. I do not know anything about programming, i do photo and video mostly....

 

Any easy option anyone?

Its right there on page 1 of this thread, about 4 links down under the " 10.13.6 " heading. Just downloaded it myself.

That's NOT the Driver I was talking about...  I was specifically addressing the one BELOW that, 387.10.10.15.15.108  <<---  Seems to have been pulled.  The Link now goes to a black page stating that this Driver was "...pulled due to errors...."

 

I DID manage to grab 387.10.10.15.15.108 BEFORE it was pulled.

 

387.10.10.15.15.108 WAS the one that Flowrider/Lou kept recommending.  I DON'T know how blache can get this Driver, now...  I CAN'T "Attach" here, as the Driver is 67.5MB, and Attachments are Limited to 10MB.

 

Sorry blache.

Apologies.

 

Upload to Google Drive? Dropbox? Possibly email it to me (I believe its set to received up to 100mb files, need to verify) and I can put it on my webserver.

Disculpas

 

Subir a Google Drive? Dropbox? Posiblemente me lo envíe por correo electrónico (creo que está configurado para recibir hasta 100 mb de archivos, es necesario verificarlo) y puedo ponerlo en mi servidor web.

Hello,

 

First of all, this is an amazingly informative thread!  Thanks to all of you for keeping this up!

 

So, I just recently discovered the hard way that Mojave doesn't support CUDA (updated from El Capitan... long, painful story). 

 

I'm now on High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G5019) and the CUDA drivers seem unstable (laggy, jittery movements, windows start turning transparent when dragged, etc.).  Currently, I am on Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.122 and CUDA Driver for Mac 418.105.  I have tried to use previous Web Driver versions, but can only go back to .118 (it appears that earlier versions aren't compatible with my OS build).  

 

Does anyone know if there is some combination of Web Driver/CUDA for Mac driver that is more stable, or even if that should make a difference at all?  None of my CUDA enabled apps (Adobe CC, DaVinci Resolve) can use CUDA processing if the default MacOS web driver is enabled.  The latest Adobe CC apps (e.g. Premiere 13.0) require High Sierra 10.13 or later for hardware processing to be enabled, so I'm kind of stuck here with this OS.  Am I just going to have to settle with OpenCL (or Metal)?

 

Any thoughts on this are highly, highly appreciated!

 

My system:

Mac Pro mid-2012

2x 2.66 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon

Quadro K5000 for Mac

My system:

Mac Pro mid-2012

2x 2.66 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon

Quadro K5000 for Mac

 

 

I'm on the same Web Driver, (387.10.10.10.40.122), and same CUDA Driver, (418.105), on both my Mid-2010 Mac Pro 5,1 and my Hackintosh, (iMac 18,3 Profile), BUT do NOT use the same software packages.  I do utilize CUDA for Number Crunching.

 

I've NOT had any screen issues, nor weird graphics issues on either of my Systems.  No laggyness, jittery movements either.  I will keep my eyes out for these issues, but I've been using CUDA for Number Crunching for quite awhile.

 

Hopefully, others here will report in, as well, and may have more information for you.  Wish I could be of more help.

 

 

Good luck.

Thanks.  And just to be clear, these issues are evident without even opening/using those applications.  Dragging any Finder, Chrome, System Preferences, etc. window will do it.  I haven't tried any GPU intensive work like rendering inside Adobe apps yet because the GUI is too buggy with these CUDA drivers (so I'm on the default OS driver now).

 

Maybe this is specific to the Quadro K5000?  I know it is one of the rare Metal capable cards (among the older cards).  Maybe Nvidia just didn't bother to write for it in the newer CUDA updates?  That would be odd, but then again, this whole situation is odd as well.    

 

*UPDATE:  I just had a chat with Nvidia tech support.  It was suggested that I contact PNY about a possible VBIOS firmware upgrade.  That, and to reboot my computer and reseat my card, lol.  Patiently awaiting email response from PNY.  

 

**UPDATE 2:  I received a response from PNY saying that there is no VBIOS update for the Quadro K5000 for Mac.  Today, I was finally able to do a clean install of High Sierra 10.13.6 (massive pain to find a complete installer .pkg to put on a bootable drive, btw... thanks Apple!).  It looks like that did the trick!  Well, either that, or the new .123 webdriver that just happened to have been released since my issues began.  Probably something leftover in the upgrade from El Capitan.  Nonetheless, problem looks to be SOLVED.

The driver/link has been removed by Nvidia (from their server) because many Apple users have complained about driver's instability on different configurations.

^^^^Actually No.  It was removed because some users didn't really know how to properly use it.  And, it also violated some of Gatekeeper's rules.  

 

Driver 108 is here:

Thank you all, but 108 does not work either. It seems like I have to cross my lingers that the next update will fix it all.

Apple has released High Sierra 2019-002 Security Update.  NO Web Driver yet.  I will keep an eye out for the new Web Driver and THEN Update both the Hackintosh and the Mac Pro.

How i can install this webdriver without the incompatible warning?

^^^^You really don't need that.  Just completely remove the previous Web Driver, and allow Gatekeeper to allow the installation of Web Driver 108.  Those kind of patches can cause OS issues down the road.

Nvidia WebDriver-387.10.10.10.40.123 is now available for macOS HighSierra 10.13.6 (17G6029).

I'm only up right now due to insomnia...  (3:05 AM - Pacific...)  I'll Update MacOS to (17G6029) on both the Mac Pro and the Hackintosh later today.  Then Update the Web Driver on each System as well.

 

[Update:]  6:36 AM - Pacific:  The Hackintosh is Updated and now on 17G6029 with NVIDIA Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.123.  No issues in Updating.  Will get the Mac Pro 5,1 done later.  [EDIT:]  8:31 AM - Pacific:  Number Crunching via BOINC is running smooth...  No issues to report.

 

[Update 2:]  8:31 AM - Pacific:  The Mac Pro is Updated and now on 17G6029 with NVIDIA Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.123  No issues in Updating.

      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
