    Hi guys, I just updated to High Sierra and then I updated my Cuda drivers, but I'm still getting a message that I need to update them even when I'm running the latest version. Any ideas?

    Good evening.

    It is not an issue with the CUDA drivers. It is an issue with the embedded Apple nVidia drivers which are faulty. Please use the latest nVidia web drivers from nvidia.com. It will also eliminate the issue of slow UI in High Sierra. I tested this setup and it worked perfectly on a Late 2013 15" MacbookPro.

    Please be advised that you must upgrade the nVidia drivers every time you upgrade the OS. Every release of nVidia web drivers works ONLY with the macOS version it was designed for.

    macOS 10.13.1
    http://www.nvidia.co.uk/content/Dri...-378.10.10.10.20.107.pkg&lang=uk&type=GeForce

    macOS 10.13.0
    http://www.nvidia.co.uk/content/Dri...-378.10.10.10.15.121.pkg&lang=uk&type=GeForce

    By the way, I tested the nVidia web drivers on a mid 2010 13" MacbookPro with GeForce 320M and it worked like a charm. Of course, no CUDA support for this video card.

    Awesome thanks guys!
    I installed the web driver on my 2014 MacBook Pro, no more black screen during boot, and cuda doesn't report being out of date anymore.

    ^^^^The Nvidia Web Driver is a video driver for the MacOS that will allow a late generation Nvidia GPU to run. Apple in its infinite (no pun intended) wisdom has chosen not to support Nvidia GPUs past the GTX 680 Mac Edition.

    The latest driver for 10.13.6 is here:

    Hey Lou. Thanks for your Help!

    I have a GeForce 730 working fine in El Capitan (on a Mac Pro Mid 2010) with the Web Driver.

    Do I need to have also the CUDA 8 panel. If so, any benefit of doing that?

    ^^^^Only if your running applications that use Cuda.
