    Today i got this message for the first time from the new NVIDIA System Preferences pane that a new driver is available. I couldn't find this update on their site as a standalone- this could be the first direct update for users of the NVIDIA Web drivers.

    How to Install the Web Drivers:
    In order to flag the alternate drivers on a CustoMac, you must install the package and also add the flag manually to the chameleon.org.Boot.plist. For Chimera bootloader:

    1. Open Finder
    2. Navigate to /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist
    3. Open in TextEdit
    4. Add nvda_drv=1 to Kernel Flags as shown:

    Example Usage:

    Code (Text):
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
    <string>darkwake=0 nvda_drv=1</string>
     
    5. Save and reboot

    You should be on the new NVIDIA drivers. :)

    Please note that these drivers should be considered experimental. If you aren't having any issues, do not install- the native OS X drivers work great for most people.

    Not sure whether anyone will need this update yet- hopefully we'll get some test results soon.

    Are folks getting real performance differences between web and native drivers? Using an OC'd GTX 670, I only achieved about a 2-3 FPS gain in Unigine Heaven ("ultra" with 2xAA at 1440p). I it is a tiny bump but seemingly w/in the margin of error and/or not actually noticeable.

    Possible hope for Fermi owners with this, not holding out too much though! The FreezeFix app is doing a good job in ML however, just be nice to not require this.
