    Bought a Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1650 and wanted to find out if it has a bootscreen. You would think no!!
    Running MacOS HS on a Samsung 970 Pro and thought, I just gonna try.
    guess what? Low and behold I GOT NO Bootscreen as such, but ..... holding down the "option key" I can get to my choice of drives; Ok ... I thought .. Lets try another thing ..."cmd+R" ... bingo ...restore screen.
    But I still got a bit of a problem. Let the screenshots speak for it self.
    The Graphics Card has 1xHDMI and 3x DP 8GB.
    No kext is loaded, monitor size is wrong (30,5" instead of 27") GDDR5 seen as 8M??? ...lol
    btw, I did checked out the existing kext's in /System/Library/Extensions to see if I could somehow insert the DeviceID; no luck

    8Mb of Vram and lack of web drivers might be troublesome.... ;)

    Interesting discovery nonetheless....

    Yes it is.... hoping to find a solution for it. Loaded the latest web drivers for HS (17G7024) Nvidia driver WebDriver-387.10.10.10.40.128

    Assuming the result was the same as having no driver? I don't think those newer cards are supported with the latest web drivers at all...

    Unsupported nVidia GPUs


    Turing GPUs (GTX 20xx, 16xx) Highest Supported OS:NONE

    Unfortunately no support in any version of MacOs as no drivers were ever written even for High Sierra. Not much else to add.

    These cards include:

    • Titan RTX

    • RTX 2080/ti

    • RTX 2070

    • RTX 2060

    • GTX 1660/ti

    • GTX 1650/ti

    • Quadro RTX 4000

    • Quadro RTX 5000

    • Quadro RTX 6000

    • Quadro RTX 8000

    I am sorry to tell you that we know this info for few months already. Nothing new.

    We know Turing GPU come with standard EFI UGA. That’s why you can get the boot screen by holding option to boot.

    But since it’s not the Mac EFI UGA, it can’t provide full boot screen support (e.g. don’t hold option to boot).

    Even the 16xx series is new, but still belongs to the Turing family. I completely assume all Turing cards come with the standard EFI UGA now. But still thanks for your confirmation.

    Anyway, as the others said. There is no driver for your card in MacOS. Make it to Display is easy. The real hard part is to activate the acceleration. So far, no one can achieve anything in this area yet
