how did you install the driver and framework, did you follow these steps ?? link

I installed /System/Library/Extensions/Geforce* and /System/Library/Extensions/NVDA* from the official oct 24 10.8.2 pkg using pacifist. I then repaired permissions and rebuit cache using kext wizard. Then I rebooted. Then I applied opencl patch.

When I use the same method to install the drivers from the main 10.8.2 combo update luxmark then works fine. I can also install the official drivers from nvidia.com and have no luxmark issues (I have lots of random freezing issues with these drivers).

Hello,

Ive installed the new kexts and frameworks on a fresh 10.8.2 install and everything is amazing, not a problem installing. Can put to sleep properly and wake up etc correctly. However the mouse seems jumpy but only intermittently, is this happening to anyone else?

On a more positive note, luxmark score has gone up by about 1000 points than in mountain lion :)

I might have done something wrong. I followed the above directions, but now i am stuck with a lower resolution. When I change, I get stuck with a blue screen.

All issues resolved here with my GTX560M with the new drivers!!!!

This is great!!!!

Thanks for all the hard work.

Good Luck

Sorry to say that Random Freeze do occur at least for me, since this update came out no Freeze but today 2 Freeze. The system log shows the well know messages.

I hope Apple will fix this some day

That's why i don't installed the latest drivers. I was pretty sure that the random Freeze was not cured by apple.

I also have 1 freeze exiting from screen sleep, but I suppose that the main cause is having the Graphics Adapter in state 3 (clock 50Mhz). Now I changed a little bit the AGPM to always stay in state 2 (450Mhz) that seems to be the best state for ML and I didn't see any more freeze.
Probably many people that simply doesn't know what is AGPM and that have their board at maximum frequency will never see freeze (may be they will change their graphics card ealier :D). For instance, who use the typical MacPro3,1 definition in SMSBios, will not use AGPM!!!!

In any case the benefit of the new driver, in performance and functionality, compared with the old one, are huge.

Mind posting your AGPM's info.plist?
I am using the GFX0 from iMac12,1 copied and pasted into MacPro5,1 and renamed to Vendor10deDevice1244

Now I have configured my hack as iMac12,1, attached the relative AGPM kext. Anyway if you prefer MacPro5,1 you can copy the value to MacPro5,1 section, the behavior should be the same.
But the most important think is to install the new FakeSMC, relative plugin and the new HWMonitor (that you can download from https://github.com/kozlek/HWSensors or direct install from the last Multibeast) and use it to see the clock of your GPU Core. Normally should stay to 405Mhz (with low GPU temperature 30-35°) and should go up only when running intensive graphics apps. But should never go down to 50 Mhz (state 3, problematic for OSX).
