1) Yes
2) Yes (with DP3, the only one for me until now working without freeze, didn't)
3) Yes (result 251)
4) Yes
5) Until now, no!!!! (at least 4 hours intensive use)
6) Those included in the Apple update and inserted in my attachment, basically the last available (OpenCL Framework was updated to version 2.1.21) !!

Finally, it seems that Apple release fully working NVidia driver!!!

I am pleased to say that the new drivers do fix all of my problems, and have had no freezes so far.

I hope you guys don't use internet tv or any other GPU performance while testing "freeze etc", because only then we know if the freeze is gone.

Hi!

First, I wanna thank you. This new drivers are working great so far with no freezes at all, and with better benchmarks results than before.

However, I see an increase on GPU temps, now it's about 65-68 celsius idle. Could you confirm this?

Thanks!

Hi,

Great !

Can you explain again the process please ? I know there're lot of answer about it but it's not clear for me now...

I'm under 10.8 with Nvidia drivers

Do I update OSX to 10.8.2 > Install Nvidia drivers 10.8.2 > replace the files (Framwork / Kext) > And launch the sudo command in the terminal ?

I must install the kext with kext utility ? And for the Framwork ?

Thanks for your help !
Best,

I have a question? maybe someone can give me a answer?

I don't get this with the frameworks, what is the path that i should put in terminal if my folder with the frameworks is called for example "1" and i have this folder on the desktop, & my Username is for example "Jumbo"?

And do i need to insert one command by one in terminal, or all 6 togheter?

Thanks

The first command in step 3c would be:

Code:
cd ~/Desktop/1

Put in one command at a time.

Great news!!!

With last special update for new Macs Apple released new NVidia driver version 304.10.20f04 that seems to solve all the issue (at least for me).

The installation instruction are always the same (update both kext and framework). Attached updated Kext and framework.

For OpenCL apply this patch using terminal after new kext installation:

Code:
sudo perl -p -i.old -e '$c+=s/\x8b\x81\x1c\x0c\x00\x00\xeb\x06\x8b\x81\x20\x0c\x00\x00/\xb8\x02\x00\x00\x00\x90\xeb\x06\xb8\x00\x00\x00\x00\x90/; END { printf "%s: %d substitution%s made.\n",($c==1 ? "Success" : "Error"),$c,(!$c || $c>1 ? "s" : ""); $?=($c!=1); } ' /System/Library/Extensions/GeForceGLDriver.bundle/Contents/MacOS/libclh.dylib


Good luck...

I have just installed these drivers and applied the opencl patch and I am having a weird issue with luxmark. In luxmark, all I get is a black screen and a score of 0. Any ideas? Unigine heaven benchmark works ok.
