NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Perfect timing too. I just bought a z170x-ud5 TH yesterday to do a new build finally.

Now if they could just get the Gen 7 CPUs working... I want a 7700x over the 6700x if I can.

Haven't some already had success with Gen 7? Or are there issues?

Not perfect timing for us. We've been waiting nearly a year with no response to hundreds of attempts to Nvidia for clarification.

OMG< Finally, I can upgrade the system after five years. Question? Can I just upgrade the GPU without exchange anything else? Sorry if the question sounds stupid. But I do like all my current gear so far; everything is working. The only major change is the 1 4k tv and one 2 k monitor. it wont work.

Only for Sierra? Or the new driver will be also for el Capitan?
I'm hoping for el capitan support as well!
I'm also at El Capitan, but I believe it's not a good release to stay at for too long: The Disk Utility is badly broken in El Capitan, and it seems they improved it in Sierra (well, unlikely it will get close to the older Disk Utility in all its glory, but still I think it's better in Sierra than in ElCap).

So, the Pascal drivers will trigger my update to Sierra. Now I hope to plan the update in an efficient and safe way...

Well, no one outside an Nvidia lab has seen the drivers yet, so we don't know if there will be any issues or additional steps. If we're lucky, it'll be as easy as using a Maxwell card.

It great, only thing i need to reach GPU nirvana, is possibility to disable second Nvidia GPU for Mac OS.

I want to use second older GPU because of Windows XP retro gaming, its working fine with Win 7, 10 multiboot, but im not sure if Mac OS is able to boot/work correctly with two PCI-E GPUs? I just need to make Mac OS to ignore second GPU, i dont need SLI or use it for PhysX etc..

I was able to make Windows XP booting on Broadwell machine, there are X99 boards with WinXP support too.

As long as your macOS boot GPU is in slot 1 it should work fine.
