Today I got Nvidia web driver(378.05.05.05f01) update notification. This update is the one with driver for pascal cards, however it breaks night shift function in Sierra 10.12.4. Even f.lux stopped working. This function is really important to me, now I'm feeling that the screen is too bright to look at.

My graphic card is GTX 960. If someone have a solution, please tell me.

Update:
Night shift will work after re-plug in the cable, but will stop working again after reboot/sleep.

Update2:
Roll back driver to 367.15.10.45f01 will solve this problem. However Friends with pascal card have to wait for the fix anyway.

Update3:
Have seen multiple reporting of this problem. Since color calibration also stopped working, seems to be a bug of driver.

FINAL UPDATE:
SOLVED by new driver: 378.05.05.05f02 (thanks donster28)

Mine card is GTX 1060, night shift works just fine(though never used).
However, the bigger problem is the iBook bug and related metal driver issues.
In overall, the GFX performance is still not on par with windows, dota2 fps dropped from 120fps to 40-65.

d from 120fps to 40-
I just noticed that when night shift is enabled, my cursor edge goes yellow but not the rest of screen...
Yeah, even for me, windows have better fps than mac for DoTA2. For World of Warcraft, mac has 2/3 fps of windows.

A workaround is create a color profile with low color temperature. I am not sure whether it will also break.

Tested and it does not work. Seems its a bug. Since I have used f.lux before I think its also possible that it's related to some personal color profile stuff.

Did you used f.lux before? Since #2 said his 1060 works fine, I want to make sure if this bug is related to previous f.lux installation.
No, i didn't use anything like this but in older graphic card and older driver, night shift is working. In the new card + driver, not


Older card = nvidia 650ti

750ti here. Night shift worked fine before update. I get the same thing, cursor with the yellow outline, nothing happens to the screen.
