Out of curiosity, which version Nvidia driver are you using with Sierra?

Just tested these drivers on 10.13.5. Still broken. Not sure if it will work correctly on 10.13.6.

- Dual 970s in a 3+3 monitor setup.
- NvidiaFixup
- MacPro SMBIOS

There are visual artifacts and OpenGL and Metal are falling back to CPU, so it's incredibly slow. Unacceptable release for me. I reverted back to 378.10.10.10.25.106. I've thoroughly been testing every driver release since then. This is the lastest driver version that works with OpenGL/Metal and dual GPUs. Although, it's slugish as ****, especially with even a few chrome tabs.

Seriously considering buying an iMac and just moving out of the Hackintosh game altogether. But I don't see a surefire way to get a 6 monitor setup without hackintoshing. Trying a Pair of Vegas is other option.

Same here: updated to 10.13.6, installed 387.10.10.10.40, no OpenGL, reverted back to patched 378.10.10.10.25.106.

If this isn't fixed in 10.14, I guess I'll go back to Sierra. :cry:

That's what I did. I have a 10.12.3 installation on another SSD. Rock solid despite rather ancient web drivers.

Are we just stuck here now? Nvidia doesn't seem to care whatsoever about drivers for High Sierra. I have a couple of R9 290 GPUs to replace my GTX 970s. Anyone know if I can get full 6 monitor support on these R9s? I am really desperate to get a fast and snappy hackintosh.

Who would have ever thought that for many professionals, the death of Hackintosh as a workable option would come not at the hands of Apple but at the hands of Nvidia?

It still is a workable option, the old web drivers for now do still work and for many people (myself included) the new drivers seem to work fine-ish, plus AMD cards work fine in hackintoshes and I've seen many professional hackintosh users using them

It's only the potential "death of Hackintosh" for systems running dual Nvidia GPU's. It might also have something to do with Apple's move towards external AMD eGPU's. There are users running Nvidia eGPU's in High Sierra via modded drivers. There's got to be a way to compare 378.10.10.10.25.106 (last known driver to support dual GPU's) to the current drivers and create a patch, but that's above my pay grade.

P.S. The problem is being discussed in-depth on the netkas forum.

Is it just people running dual nvidia cards that are having issues? I'm on 10.13.4 with 387.10.10.10.30.107 and it's running great. After effects, C4D, davinci resolve, all running great on a 1060 6gb.

Trying to decide if I should update to 10.13.6.
