    No, I wouldn't think so. emuvariableuefi-64-efi is used for preserving NVRAM between boots. I correct the glitches upon wake up by logging out and logging back in. It's fun to get to the logout menu item, but it works.

    Yes I have 4K 60Hz through the HDMI output

    MacOS Sierra 10.12.5
    GTX 1080 Zotac AMP Edition
    Samsung KS7500 Series 7

    But for some reason it is necessary to disconnect the DisplayPort Cable from my Samsung monitor "28 even though this also supports 4K 60Hz resolution

    I still have not tried connecting both "55 +" 28 with HDMI cable

    Sorry for Google Translator

    Agh! I was hopeful for a second. Perhaps these new drivers were just quickly pushed out for the sake of keeping up with the OS X updates. I'm guessing that they're still working on a 1060 fix. (Although, I am still disappointed...)


    To add to this: I am using HDMI for my main monitor and DVI for my second, and I receive the same issue. I actually took it up with NVIDIA, and they were able to replicate the issue on their lab machines. I have yet to try out the new driver myself, but I was hoping it would contain the fix. I guess we'll have to wait a little bit longer. Perhaps this one didn't include the fix because they might still be working on said fix yet simply needed to get an OS X update driver out in a hurry.


    There's a thread that I've been posting in. Just look up the issue and you might see it. I last posted that I had gotten through to NVIDIA, and that they were able to replicate this issue and are working on fixing it. I guess they haven't finished.

    Sometimes on start or restart, I would lose my screen when the graphic drivers load.. I solved it by not shutting down the computer, but I still let the screen goes to sleep. GTX 1080 SC

    Installed the drivers and set Nvidia web to true but it still won't detect my gtx 1070, anyone knows why?

    I get the Nvidia logo on top and the drivers are indeed set to Nvidia web driver, but resolution is still crap and I get Nvidia chip model 7mb under About this mac..

    thoughts?

    I have an H170 system with a GTX 1050 Ti, and since updating to 10.12.5 and the new Web drivers, I get sudden reboots. One time I was booted with the Clover option to not reboot on panic, and it froze instead. Most times it has been when I was away from the computer, but it happened once while I was using it. One other 1050ti user, in the 10.12.5 update thread, reported seeing freezes.

    I use an i7-6700 processor, the iMac17,1 system definition and Lilu+NvidiaGraphicsFixup.

    I have disconnected the GPU and I'll run it on integrated graphics for a while, to try to determine if the Nvidia driver is the cause of the reboots.

    Can you try 14,2 SMBIOS and remove Lilu and NvidiaGraphicsFixup temporarily?
