I'd like to get CUDA running in High Sierra. I'm running 10.13.6 (17G14019) with a GTX770
If I install CUDA 418.105 I get the now infamous 'Update Required' loop......where you install the (418.163) update and then get 'Update Required' and 'No Newer CUDA driver available........

My hope is/was that installing a webdriver might solve the CUDA problem.

The web driver for my OS macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra (17G14019) is 387.10.10.10.40.138

However the Nvidia driver page states that the following are the 'supported' products:

GeForce 600 Series:
GeForce GTX 680

GeForce 200 Series:
GeForce GTX 285

GeForce 100 Series:
GeForce GT 120

GeForce 8 Series:
GeForce 8800 GT

Quadro Series:
Quadro K5000 for Mac, Quadro 4000 for Mac

Quadro FX Series:
Quadro FX 4800, Quadro FX 5600

My GTX770 isn't on this list and so the webdriver doesn't work and I think I need the webdriver in order to get CUDA running! When I install the webdriver, it defaults to 'default macOS Graphics Driver'. If I select NVIDIA Web Driver, it says to reboot. When I reboot I'm back to the 'default macOS Graphics Driver'....

In the NVIDIA Driver Manager under the ECC tab it says: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 'ECC Not Supported'.

Is there a way around this or will I have to get one of the 'supported' cards (GTX680) if I want CUDA working?
any ideas? Or is there no working CUDA for 10.13.6 (17G14019).

1. That list is very incomplete because it is only showing the cards that officially shipped in a real Mac.

2. Sounds like you do not have working NVRAM which is why setting the web driver is not sticking.

3. You card does not support ECC... so that tab is correct.

Thanks for the info.

Have got the Web driver sticking now. Had to add 'Inject System ID' and 'NvidiaWeb' checks to System Parameters in config.Plist in Clover. (needed to uninstall and re-install)

Regarding CUDA, I've followed a tutorial on Y**Tube that involves copying a dylib file and renaming it to the cuda version, then adding it to the CUDA.plist. It's got rid of the red 'Update Required', I'm in the process of finding out if CUDA actually works or whether it's just the message that's been removed!

That process is only needed if there isn't a current version of CUDA available for those web drivers. Often they would release updated web drivers and then release the CUDA update a few days later. I used to do that all the time when running an Nvidia card.

I think that there's an issue with High Sierra and CUDA full stop. The 'Update Required' and 'No Newer CUDA driver available' error is widespread and it not based upon matching CUDA version and web drivers. I used a compatible/matching CUDA and webdriver and still had the errors.
