    NVIDIA has released their alternate graphics drivers for OS X Mavericks 10.9.3. These are separate from the drivers Apple ships as standard, and should be considered experimental. If you've installed the drivers before, you may get a notification to update to the 10.9.3 drivers.

    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:

    Example Usage:

    Code (Text):
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
    <string>nvda_drv=1</string>
    5. Save and reboot

    You should be on the new NVIDIA drivers. :)

    Please note that these drivers should be considered experimental. If you aren't having any issues, do not install- the native OS X drivers work great for most people.

    I tried these with my Nvidia GTX 750ti.

    Freezes on boot.
    Tried several combinations of GraphicsEnabler=yes|no and nvda_drv=1|0
    No luck.

    Maybe others have better luck than me.

    Reinstalled GT 640.

    The new nVidia driver for 10.9.3 solved the GPU power management (Open CL crashing problem).
    Congrats

    On that note; I was optimistic since the 334.89 release notes for the Windows driver mentions added support for GTX 750, GTX 750ti and GTX TITAN Black.

    Maybe one has to do some device-id changes, but the freeze on boot...

    I also got an update on the Cuda driver. Version 6.0.37, not sure wether that is new or not.

    Well well... I had no idea there was also a change necessary in the Boot.plist.

    Here installed and working like a charm, and incredible, first appeared in the preferences panel Cuda driver 334.01.01f01 this website without making any changes to the Extra / 3 org.chameleon.Boot.plist. My current video card is a GTX 660 TI. But in the Nvidia panel continues to show OS X default graphics driver and not compatible ECC. Like it? New partial support? (Use the clover bootloader new version 2671). Sorry this English.
