    Nvidia should update the web driver shortly. Any Apple security update is going to break it, so you need to wait for Nvidia's update to be released before applying the Apple security updates.

    If you're using anything but Final Cut Pro X to edit, you're better off with an Nvidia card.

    Which card do you have now? Not flashed with Mac ROMs, I assume?

    No glasged Nvidia Gtx 750 ti 2GB running premiere pro cc 17. My computer/GPU run too slow when I edit 4K. I want a faster card.

    you may be better off trans coding to a lighter codec for better performance or using a proxy workflow.
    for nvidia cards see http://forums.macrumors.com/threads...out-nvidia-pc-non-efi-graphics-cards.1440150/

    depends what software you use but you wont get a big speed up from a gpu, so a proxy workflow might be best (depending on software). something like trans code your video to 720p prorez edit & cut then for export re point your software at the original video then export.

    The upgraded Nvidia web driver for 10.11.6 was released over the weekend. I'm not seeing it through direct download from Nvidia's site yet, but the web driver's auto-updater is able to detect, download, and install it.

    Agree with above that a proxy-based workflow is a far better idea.
