Try it. But, before you do, read back a bunch of posts to see what others have done after updating to the ...30.106 driver.

I checked for them, they are only in the EFI backup directory's so you don't need them.

Webdriver 387.10.10.10.30.106 has been released, and it is working well on both of my hacks.

Why did you remove them?

Because they are no longer required with the new driver. I've always had issues with G-Sync not working properly. On the older drivers, enabling G-Sync would lock the entire display up after a couple seconds of being enabled.

On these new *.30.103 and latest *.30.106 drivers, I can enable G-Sync without the display locking up completely on me in the finder, but graphics don't work when trying to launch certain games, but work fine without G-Sync enabled (just without the benefits of G-Sync).

It's still probably a driver issue to be worked out over time. I can always boot into Windows if I wanted to play something with G-Sync enabled but having G-Sync fully working on macOS would make the driver perfect in my eyes.

Thanks for the update , that saves me going through the driver update for nothing. 104 is still working fine here , no need for any other Kexts and workarounds.
Are you using two GPUs? The two latest versions work great for me if I remove one of my GTX 980 Ti's.

After all the trouble to try to make *.30.103 work with the Adobe Suite, without succes, I am happy with the latest latest *.30.106. Working now for half an hour with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and all the problems seems to be gone. (fingers crossed). Even closing a window in Safari is now instantly!

Yes 2 x 1070s , new driver works fine , just no opengl. And I would rather use 104 than remove a card.
I have tested it and 1 card works fine with opengl.
