    Hello
    I'm wondering if there's a custom ROM to make the GTX 780 pc edition to MAC Edition
    Thanks in advance

    Yes, there is. However, it is not freely available. You will need to send off your video card to MacVideoCards and pay them to get it flashed for you.

    As far as I know, there's no freely available firmware floating around for the GTX 780.

    Btw, I've read in few older posts the MacVidCards was thinking about doing online flashing service. Any news on that?

    He's been offering flashing service for quite some time.

    If you mean like do-it-yourself online flashing service, that would be really sweet!! Would totally buy it then, for me it's a hassle to send my card away...

    @ifraaank , Yes, online flashing service. Ill try to find those posts, not sure if here or on forum.netkas.
    That's not important for my current setup with MP1,1 as 7xxx and R9 ROMs are available and he was the first (or one of the) to put them out. But of some current nVidias for 4,1 or 5,1, shipping back and forth, flashing and again paying for customs and taxes (almost impossible to skip it here) would be more than buying two of those cards (excluding 980 and Titans).

    Looking at the techpowerup GPU database, many GK110 ROMs are quite close to 256KiB, which doesn't leave any room for a Mac EFI, which is usually twice as big as the PC UEFI.

    So this "online flashing service" would involve soldering a larger EEPROM on your card. ;)

    When was that a problem? :D

    It seems that things have changed, I'm still on posts about older 64kb nVidia cards for which 256kb EEPROM was more than enough.:(
