I have a gtx 660ti and it does work with my rx590 in mojave (but) hardware acceleration cant be utilized; causing big lag. Are we just waiting for the webdriver to be released to fix that or is that just going to be part of using mojave from now on?
It's been almost 2 years with no nVidia web drivers for Mojave and let alone Catalina. There are bad relationships between Nvidia and Apple. It all started when nVidia demanded Apple to pay license fees which Apple refused so that's why there are no native drivers for Maxwell/Pascal/AI Turning based nVidia cards. nVidia could produce web drivers for Mojave but they refused. I presume Apple didn't provide Metal specifications to nVidia or nVidia didn't see any real incentives to produce Metal capable drivers due to low market shares of macOS customers. It's all blame games to them right now.

Not a good situation definitely. I'd like to keep this thread on topic of Nvidia cards that do have native support in Mojave and Catalina. There are many other threads on the feud between the two companies. Readers can use search for those.

my gtx 1080ti works fine in Catalina :thumbup:
How is that then, without Nvidia drivers - or do you mean it gives a picture just without any acceleration?

@trs96 Sorry to deviate from actual topic, do you have recommendation for low profile AMD gpus (with two display ports) for small form factor PCs. Any thing lower than $200 is good but cheaper is better.
