NVIDIA has released their alternate graphics drivers for OS X Yosemite 10.10.0 These are separate from the drivers Apple ships as standard, and should be considered experimental. These drivers have been known to solve OpenCL issues with certain applications, as well as providing better native GPU power management for certain devices.
NOTE: These drivers are currently the only method to get full acceleration for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750, 750Ti, 970, and 980 'Maxwell' graphics cards. There are no current Macs with these cards, so support is absent natively in OS X.
If you've installed the drivers before, you may get a notification to update to the 10.10.0 drivers from the built in System Preferences pane.

NVIDIA Web Driver
How to Install the Web Drivers:
In order to flag the alternate drivers on a CustoMac using Chameleon/Chimera, you must install the package and also add the flag manually to the chameleon.org.Boot.plist. If you use Clover, you can toggle back and forth using the standard menubar or system preference pane.
1. Open Finder
2. Navigate to /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist
3. Open in TextEdit
4. Add nvda_drv=1 to Kernel Flags as shown:
<key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>nvda_drv=1</string>
5. Save and reboot
You should be on the new NVIDIA drivers.

Guys, do you have graphics power Management with this drivers ? My gtx770 stays at 1.07 GHz, just like im Mavericks before 10.9.3, if i open any opengl apps (Preview)
When I sued this new nvidia driver its causes openCL problem (GPU didn't slow down after opening an image in preview), back to official drivers, problem solved.
My card is Evga GTX770 2G
Same problem here with both the default and Nvidia drivers, even with different system definitions. Neither does the modified AGPM work.Stuck at 1.07 GPU and 6000+Mem....
