NVIDIA has released alternate graphics drivers for macOS Sierra 10.12.0. 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, 750 Ti, 950, 960, 970, 980, 980 Ti, and TITAN X '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 new drivers from the built in System Preferences pane.

How to Install the Web Drivers:
In order to use the alternate drivers on a CustoMac, you must first install the driver package.

As of macOS Sierra, nvda_drv=1 in config.plist under Boot > Arguments is no longer working to initiate drivers. Clover has been updated with a new System Parameter setting called NvidiaWeb.

There's a new method for enabling the NVIDIA Web Drivers in the latest versions of Clover. It can be turned on and off by editing /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist to add SystemParameters/NvidiaWeb. This takes the place of nvda_drv=1 boot flag, which will not work in macOS Sierra.

1. Mount EFI Partition
2. Open /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with text edit, Xcode, or Plist Editor Pro
3. Edit as shown below:

Code:
<key>SystemParameters</key>
    <dict>
        <key>InjectKexts</key>
        <string>YES</string>
        <key>InjectSystemID</key>
        <true/>
        <key>NvidiaWeb</key>
        <true/>
    </dict>
4. Remove Boot/Arguments/nvda_drv=1 if necessary
5. Save and reboot

Guys grab my words "nvidia need to finish cuda 8.0 to to release drivers for macOs ,this cuda is one the most revolutionary and complex ever, they miss the release date of cuda 8.0 by far ,lots of test and programing still needed,so you need to go on the cuda developer forums and read what the hell is happening to predict the launch date of the web drivers whit gtx 1080 and so cards support ,in my point of view ,right now is at least 2 months.

Still waiting rather impatiently for support for my GTX1060 card! hate having to load windows to see this card shine so I continue on with HD530 graphics on El Capitan before making the transition to Sierra. I guess thats what I get for trying to stay ahead of the curve in the GPU department! :lol:

Edit...updated to Sierra but continue on the same way.
