    Hi,

    the webdriver is running fine here in 10.12.6 and a 1050ti. The only problem is the clocking of the card: If I directly run luxmark after reboot (and finished loading), either the performance is quite high (like ~6000) or after next reboot or wakeup very low, only at 1000-1500. After next reboot, performance is again 6000.

    Did I miss some common kext oder injection? Everything works fine, only sometimes it is very slow, sometimes not.

    Did you guys disable all PCIE powermanagement in your bios?

    EDIT: Ok, it seems I did something wrong with luxmark: It runs very slow, if safari still is open, it runs fast when safari was quit before...

    Webdriver installed and running fine on 10.12.6 and a 1050ti. On the third or so reboot it fails to boot up it loads with the bar about 3/4 and it switches off. Tried doing fresh install and does the same thing after a few restarts

    So Web Drivers work as expected, however I have a few issues, not sure they are related to WebDriver or OSX (10.12.6).

    1.) Cannot play Netflix in Safari, does not work at all. ITunes HD works.
    2.) Some games crashes more or less instantly, i.e. Transport Fever
    3.) I have no Power Management on my card. I need to first boot into Windows and manually set fan speed etc and reboot to OSX.

    What would be the best action(s) to get PowerManagement? Replace AGPM?

    You dont have to unplug the displayport monitor, just turn it off @ the power button on the front. Once the boot is done turn on.
    works for me with a 1060 with the same problem . You can run 2 monitors from 2 other ports but its the DP that is the problem.
    I run 3 monitors and only got this problem when I added the 3rd to the DP port.

    So I installed the web driver. and it reconised my 1080ti. I didn't need the edit the p.list.

    Is this possible? or should I still update the plist

    Recommend updating the config.plist. You can use MultiBeast v9.2.1, selecting just the following:
    Graphics Configuration > NVIDIA Web Drivers Boot Flag
    Build
    Reboot​

    Can confirm these drivers are working on 10.12.6, Z-170X-UD5 for GTX980 Ti FTX Gaming ACX 2.0+ and GTX 970 G1 Gaming, with the 970 G1 utilizing a Display Port output for boot/OSX. Acceleration works across CUDA programs, no artifacts noticed s far. Bios initial output is set to PCI (Gtx 970 G1).

    The one issue I'm encountering is trying to install my third card, a GTX 980 Ti Kingpin. Upon installation, the black screen boot problem returns. I had this setup in my previous El Cap install with no issues. I've attempted the 3 GPU install in different PCI slots, different cables, different monitors... all to no avail. Have also attempted just using the 980tis with the same result. I can, however, boot the 3 GPU setup with nv_disable=1, with no acceleration and low-res output.

    Internal graphics on my Mobo are disabled. I've yet to patch an SSDT fix via @shilohh SSDT GPU Injection, thought I imagine that might be the next step. Any other ideas aside from the SSDT patch?

    current config.plist is attached.

    Anyone have an issue with seeing multiple monitors with this latest update? In particular none of the Display Ports on my GTX 1060 FTW+ are recognized, only the HDMI port.
