    We were able to reverse engineer their update app.

    Only works on 10.9.2 Beta for now but pretty obvious that once real 10.9.2 update comes out, we will have permanent solution.

    Thanks go to Nvidia. nMP may have forsaken them, but they are still there for us.

    Fix Posted at Netkas

    BTW, this also brings new Fastest Mac card, GTX780 Ti.

    And yes, already have working EFI.

    Sweet!

    So, I'm guessing there will be a Web Driver release from Nvidia after 10.9.2 goes live?

    Yes, this is a Beta that Netkas & I found with some digging.

    Nice thing is they have continued the control panel system, so you can switch to stock 10.9.2 driver at will.

    All we need now is CUDA

    I am still on 10.8.5...

    Wasn't keen to change up to 10.9.x on my work box yet, but this might force my hand. Any thoughts on when 10.9.2 will go out?

    The Beta driver also works in 10.9.1 with a GK110A. But no Cuda yet.

    How are the 4K resolutions @ 60Hz working out in OS X?

    I'm also guessing this will cover the forthcoming 790 and Titan Black Edition?

    As mentioned, they are linked at Netkas.org forums.

    Type "A" cards never had issue. Issue has been with "B" cards and there is now a 100% solid, stable fix that works in 10.9.1.

    It is now possible to use a GK110B in 10.9.1 as if it were an "A" card.

    MVC,

    What about full support for the Titan? Is NVidia going to produce web drivers for the Titan?

    My RevA Titans work fine, minus the boot screens obviously. What are you referring to?

    Great news! Let us know when OpenCL and CUDA start working, I would love to place an order for two!

    I purchased a flash Titan from MacVideoCards and was wondering if I could use the web drivers under OSX 10.9.1. Also, how can I tell what gen/rev my Titan is? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Post #6 Above:

    MVC only sold a limited number of GK110B cards, until the GK110B problem become known. If your card worked (Open CL) with the Mac OS drivers in 10.9, then it's a GK110A, if not it's the B version.

    As an FYI (and I know it's not relevant to the 780!) but using the same beta with a 560 ti somewhat delightfully disables video to one of the DVI ports, the good news however, is that the NVidia control panel works to revert back to the OS drivers, and twin screen goodness returns.

    That is all.

    Yes, cards other than current ones lose a port or two in B07, I'm sure they will fix in final release.

    BTW, using the B07 driver won't work directly in 10.9.2 12C53.....HOWEVER....you can still use the dynamic library switcheroo as worked out by a member at Netkas, just tested with a GK110B 780GTX.

    So, fix still works.

    And likely that a B08 or B09 fix will be issued soon for Betas, but REAL answer is for Apple to quit puttering around with 10.9.2 and get GM out.

    After that I'm sure Nvidia will release a REAL Web Driver. (Maybe if they wait long enough we'll get Titan Black and GTX750 (First Maxwell card, new arch) support too? )

    Can the 780 Ti's be modded to support 2 x 6 pins or is it better to use external power?

    I have been running mine with just the 2 six pins with no issues.

    But I wasn't feeling silly enough to try Furmark.

    And until B08 or B09 comes out, you can't run on 12C53.

    Needs too be 10.9.1 or 10.9.2 up to C48
