It's been working flawlessly for me! Even NVMe and X79 power management is working. I guess time to wait for a few key apps to update like cDock haha. If anyone needs some help, feel free to reply or DM me :)

Sierra runs well from 1st Beta to this Candidate GM. Sleep works great, but no Wake from Sleep. Only reboot helps.
This is related to NVidia Web Drivers. Does anyone have a solution / workaround?

BTW Web driver from Beta 6 worked on Beta 7, works on GM (vs 367.10.10.05b01)

Unable to boot without nv_disable=1 after fresh install of Sierra GM. Tried injecting Nvidia through clover configurator and through multibeast. No use. And the display is choppy of course.
I have installed the drivers from this link http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/n...s-drivers-for-macos-sierra-10-12-beta.195315/ (which was previously unnecessary in Yose' El Cap' etc). No help

I'm in the same boat on a GTX 670. Currently 10.11.6, and have had no need for NVIDIA web drivers previously (although tested them and they were fine). Everything works OOTB.

No signal after boot on Sierra without nv_disable=1. Installer itself runs fine. Tried web drivers (with explicit nvda_drv=1), AGDPfix, Clover's NVIDIA injection options. Did two attempts, one with App Store upgrade and one clean install. Have had to revert to El Cap clone both times.

I guess I'll just wait for final release or until someone figures out what the issue is.

I see some reports of 7xx series cards working okay, so maybe just suck it up and move to one of those...

Don't know if this is affecting anyone else - but as I am now running a clean Sierra install, the playing of iTune protected movies and trailers were very choppy and unwatchable because I was using the original Shiki kext which I kept in my download files. There is an updated version from the same source which corrected that problem, just thought I'll pass that info on if it helps.

Still not seeing the GM candidate as available on any of my machines - all the App Store is showing is Beta version 12.0.43.
Has Apple not put the Public Beta GM out yet on the App Store? Or is this the GM? I would thing the title would have GM in it.
