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.

No HDMI 2.0 is not supported by either Apple or Nvidia. BTW Club3D DP 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 adapter works perfectly to get 4K @ 60 hz over HDMI cable. But you have to plug that adapter AFTER every reboot. If the adapter is plugged in and if Sierra reboots, we get a blank screen.

Possible solutions:
1. Wait for Nvidia to enable HDMI 2.0 support and override Apple's operating system blocking it.
2. Wait for Apple to release iMacs/macMinis with HDMI 2.0/2.1 ports and we will get 4K @ 60 Hz automatically with next macOS version 10.13
3. There is a dude who makes pixel patch to force HDMI port to output to 4K @ 60 hz using custom resolution. But it still doesn't work. Wait for him to figure things out.

So basically there is no clear good solution in sight apart from buying "Club3D DP 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 active adapter". But you need to do the unplugging and replugging drama upon every boot.
Otherwise we have to wait.
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

Unfortunately, the updated drivers did not fix the wake-up from sleep problem of a scrambled and flickering screen for GTX 1060 owners. :(
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...)


What are the boxes checked in your System Preferences Energy Saver pane?
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.


Mildly relieved I'm not alone. Just got my 1060 last week! Didn't see this coming. Also, not seeing a thread to watch on this. Hmmm...
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.

Managed To Get It To Work! HOORAY! Basically Put The File Below Into You EFI/Clover/Drivers64UEFI, Also, I Screwed It Up First Time Round With Clover So I Just Extracted The File Instead So No One Else Would Have To Go Through The Trouble I Went Through ;/

EDIT: Also Make Sure You Have The Latest Update With Latest Web Drivers, Only Use This IF You Select Use nVidia Web Drivers But When You Restart It Goes Back To OS X Default.
Thank you man! Been trying to sort this out for hours, thanks to your post its sorted!

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?
