I have been waiting for this day to upgrade my GTX 970! I am now a proud owner of a shinny new MSI GTX 1070 Gaming!
Oh man I love this card!
Apart from having night shift broken I do not regret my purchase.
Now lets just wait for the updated drivers and we are on our way.
There is only one thing I am complaining about, the price of these cards is ridiculous. Almost £500! I paid half of that for my GTX 970

Sooo got my 1070 installed in Sierra 10.12.4, web drivers installed and enabled.

But no matter what I do, OSX freezes. Using the default drivers (no acceleration) OSX is stable. Web drivers with Pascal support freezes no matter what. FakeSMC installed it lasts maybe 30 seconds and pretty much freezes as soon as I click something. Without FakeSMC I'm able to run the computer for a few minutes but it will crash when audio plays.

Any ideas?

Latest build of Clover.

UPDATE: Was told to try single monitor, and that has significantly improved stability. No freezes yet.

Soooo any solutions to allow me to use dual monitors??

thats literally 2x the performance for a smaller price. ~~400 USD for sli 970. ~~ 340 USD for GTX 1070.

Europe might be a different market if 1070 is ~~ 500 though.

but that gtx 1070 will last you too much longer than that 970.

Without listing your system components in your profile or signature you won't get much help.

Updated sig to reflect the build.

And it seems as though its an issue with dual monitors. Im running stable now with just one.

These drivers seem pretty well optimized for Pascal. The 980ti and 1070 are usually within about 5-10% of each other and my own benchmark on a 980ti seems to match that.

(I'm not using the Pascal beta drivers here. Using the previous version for 10.12.4)

Wow hey... three screens on one card?

I haven't been able to get more than two working... (tried on a 780Ti, a 980 and a 980Ti haven't tried a 10x0 card yet...)
