I have a gt 640 in my hack and i like put a 1070 to game in windows until we receive drivers from nvidia..
in osx i will be using only the gt 640.. but my question is.. the 1070 will be off by default ? or i need disable in the bios or else ?

I have my strix970 in slot1 and strix1070 in slot2, set bios to use slot1 and turned off intel gfx completely, the 1070 is 'on' but not used in macOS and I disabled the 970 in windows, works great. Unfortunately my 27" Wacom only has one output so I have to switch the DP from one card to the other depending on OS

I have gtx 1070 and a 670 in my hackintosh and I wanted to use the 1070 for windows and the 670 for mac os. But when I booted into windows, suddenly the drivers for the cards were gone, and when I installed drivers for both the 1070 and 670 (Windows only recognized them as general graphics cards) my pc crashed...
When trying to reboot into windows I only got an endless windows loading ring-thingie...and now suddenly the windows drive isn't recognized as a boot drive anymore...
Anyway, I'll try to repair/reinstall windows. May I ask you how you went on about installing the drivers for both cards? I'm guessing I had this crash because the drivers of the 670 and 1070 were actually the same, so they overwrite eachother or something like that! Pls tell me how you did this haha

Edit: another problem is that my 1070 only has 1 dvi port and I need one more dvi or vga port to drive all of my 3 monitors, so I somehow need to use either the 1070 and 670 or the 1070 and intel hd in windows. My 670 has 2 vga ports so thats sufficient for mac os.

Well, you can use DisplayPort to VGA (or whatever) adapters to drive up to 4 arbitrary displays with your 1070.

Personally I'd overthink my priorities before trying to use ancient connection standards on such a powerful GPU. :lol:

I traded in a 780 for a 960 just to get two displayports

I think Nvidia is completely likely and in the right to ignore the request by a community violating the license of an OEM.

Having said that, with the akitio node, bizonbox, wolfe on the horizon and others already on the market the demand for and maturity of eGPU solutions is increasing.
I consider it much more likely that Nvidia will cater to those, both on a professional (cuda) and consumer level (dGPU). They offer the best method to increase the life span of many apple products and provide Nvidia with a foothold in the ecosystem without assisting illicit license violators.

Maybe once we reach 100 pages they'll finally push some support out :thumbup:

edit: I posted! :clap::clap::headbang::headbang:
I posted. I am not asking for the drivers, but I am asking if there will ever be some. If we have to buy 9xx or AMD, or we have just to wait. Maybe CES 2017?
