Is it safe to upgrade from 10 2 to 10 3 with a 670 installed?
It's safe. Running it right now. Except I seem to be getting this weird message in NVIDIA CUDA.
There is no newer version available.
Running a 660 Ti here on 10.8.2 - was going to wait but if you guys feel it is safe to update, I will.
My only concern is the cuda thing. I need to use it for AE and I don't want to cripple the app because i'm inpatient.
Yeah. I updated to 10.8.3 with my dual 670s and running fine so far. I am also getting the CUDA update but 5.0.37 is the latest update for OSX.
I removed the CUDA preference pane and installed CUDA driver again. Get the same "UPDATE" message. Pops up when you login, quite annoying.
we're going to have to just sit tight and wait for nvidia to give us an update. May as well uninstall this one sense it is rendered useless and just serves as an annoyance.
The CUDA drivers depends on a matching video card driver as its counterpart. If you update your system to 10.8.3 then the video driver has a higher version number than the CUDA driver — thus making CUDA at least unstable, but more likely completely disables all CUDA functionality. OpenCL might still work.
So, if you depend on CUDA for your work, best advise is to stay with 10.8.2 and the 10.8.2 WebDriver from NVidia for a few days longer. Based on the pattern of earlier Mac OS X releases, I think it is safe to assume that NVidia will release an updated CUDA Driver in a few days from now.
Update: Here's a semi-official statement in the NVidia forum concerning CUDA drivers for 10.8.3.
Looks like we don't have to wait very long.
The new 5.0.45 version of the CUDA driver is now available from the Nvidia website http://www.nvidia.com/object/macosx-cuda-5.0.45-driver.html
There is no newer version of the Quadro & GeForce drivers than that which ships with 10.8.3.
It seems that has fixed the "update" issue. Works just fine now.
Thanks for your link! Any idea why no updates from the control panel in sys_prefs? Cheers and have a good tweakend!
Thanks for the link! Updated both the GPU driver and CUDA!
