Hello Guys,

the performance of my Nvidia Geforce GTX 980 is very low on mac OS High Sierra 10.13.3.
I installed the Nvidia Web Driver ( downloaded the right one for 17D47 from this site ) and also installed the CUDA driver, downloaded from Nvidia´s website.
Furthermore, I used Clover config.plist patches to implement ACPI patches for IGPU Power Management.
But the graphical performance is often very laggy, for example when I log in my system or open programs or folders in Launchpad.
Has someone an idea to solve the problems?
I attached some "Problem Reporting" files.

It will be glad when someone can help me:)

Known issue with High Sierra + nVidia.

You need to move to AMD or wait for nVidia to fix their drivers (with a little help from Apple).

Your two options are for quick remedy:

A) Move back to Sierra 10.12.6
B) Buy an AMD Radeon RX560 or above. Or if you can find it/afford it, a Vega 56/64.
