MacRumors (comments) have reported that the new 10.12.3 beta updates ALL Graphics drivers. (AMD, INTEL, GeoForce)
This happens with virtually every minor OS X update, so (sadly) nothing special here.

After 169 pages, i finally decided not to wait for Pascal drivers and to buy a second Nvidia card (a GTX 960 in second hand, certified by Amazon.fr).

Hack working with:
- GTX 960 in first pcie of my Z170 pro : HDMI (1440p 60hz)
- GTX 1070 in second pcie, for windows only : DisplayPort (1440p 60hz)

Booting in HDMI in Windows (deactivate the GTX 960 in the control panel), select DisplayPort on your screen when you are in Windows to get your 1070 working.

Hack booting so with GTX 960. Installation with i7 6700k with HDMI: select iMac 17.1.
Install Nvidia drivers and booting back: black screen, so reboot without activating the drivers (spacebar when clover menu appears before booting in macOS).
Solution: install AGDPfix, and reboot your hack.

Booting perfectly in macOS 10.12.2 with GTX 960 and fully acceleration in 1440p :)
can you tell me why i would need to disable the 960 in windows?
i am doing the same thing, but i am also using a 770 along with my 1080 in windows. The 1080 is set to 2d surround mode with 3 monitors. the 770 is for one monitor.
does that setup affecting the 1080's performance?
thanks

From my experience, you don't need to disable it in windows

8 months so far and neither Apple or Nvidia want to give any comment on Pascal drivers. Looks like a NDA thing at this point.

We have to wait for the next Mac releases – especially if Apple decides to continue the Mac Pro line. If the answer is no, it might be the coffin nail for Pascal on macOS.

I bought GT 730 for Hackintosh and left GTX 1080 for windows games. Now I just need to switch monitor input during the boot process (hdmi for windows and dvi for hackintosh)
Thanks for that info and how exactly are you switching during the boot process if you don't mind me asking, are you using just one monitor?

My Dell 2009w Monitor only has DVI and VGA connections. Would I have to use something like this:
