this is the latest update
if i have to take a wild guess, i will say that most likely nvidia will have the web drivers ready for 10.14.3
probably a few days later after 10.14.3
i really hope so

The most important thing is out of the box eGPU support, Metal support, and Nvidia officially listing the new cards support macOS on the retail boxes. That would be great for Apple and Nvidia.

Does Mojave currently support my NVIDIA GTX 680 Pro Mac Edition on Mac Pro 5.1 2009 ? Works great on High Sierra ...

yes that card is natively supported on Mojave, with metal support and full acceleration
I also tested a 650 on Mojave and it also works OOTB
the ones that need the web drivers are the newer cards, pascal, etc

Wait, I have the GTX 680 running on Sierra with the NVIDIA Web Driver are you saying I can run this card without the web driver on Mojave?

yes, but under a different driver (apple’s). performance is a bit worse in my experience.

I see, I will wait for the NVIDIA Web Drivers. It's not an emergency. I am never running the most current OS anyways.

well the only one who can really answer that question is you, i upgraded to mojave and i don’t miss High Sierra at all, you will have new features if you use mojave, but it all depends on your system and your taste, i love dark mode. you can just take Mojave for a test drive and if you don’t like it you can always go back to HS. also is not the first version of mojave, version 10.14.0 , we are about to be in 10.14.3 soon, so is even better now, is all up to you

please stop posting answers that KEPLER
Nvidia Series 6xx and quadro k5 are working with mojave and are „full accelerated“

THEY ARE NOT

metal feature set is 1.4 not 2
and THERE IS NO CUDA support !!!

in other words there are no benefits if you want to use GPU-CUDA-Acceleration when you are using 10.14.x
or you need Metal 2.0 feature set for maschine learning...

nvidia is crippled under mojave
no choice of cuda in DCC-Apps like
Adobe
Da Vinci resolve
or Nuke

in cinema 4d pro render runs on CPU only and experimental

and all GPU - renderers like
vray-RT, octane, or redshift ARE DEAD !!!

if you have 4GB Vram You can use nvidia with autodesk Flame 2019.x

but it runs better with LINUX in real-time
[doublepost=1551123946][/doublepost]maya was never ported to metal-viewport ,

and autodesk dropped the development of Alias Design series for mac

Autocad will be dead too ...

on MOJAVE!!!

sorry to interrupt but I did test a Nvidia 650 on Mojave and it works OOTB with full acceleration
yes still no CUDA support

I also tested a 740 with it also works on Mojave just like the 650

just in case I been using the latest version of FCP with that video card and not a single problem

no problem, just saying

I do agreed with you but you are making it seems worse than what it really is

yes I know is bad but there are alternatives to everything

for now I will use the 740 because I'm not going to spend a single penny on a AMD card

SORRY TO SAY IN MY PROFESSION DCC DIGITAL CONTENT CREATION WORKING WITHOUT CUDA HAS NO ALTERNATIVES
if you like Adobe go with radeon but working with 3ds Max or Maya or Cinema without GPU CUDA renderer is worthless.
please it is not dramatizing you just never worked professionally with computers...
  • openCL is dead on mac even FCP still uses it
  • Metal spent 5 years since ElCapitan without being used for single Viewport at one Application in stead of OpenGL
  • and CUDA is like salt for Bred in acceleration since 10 years from visual Effects to Mathematics and Medicine...
  • openCL is buggy and dead and Metal2.0 is not supported with KEPLER chips which are older then 5 years

thats catastrophic DOT without CUDA nvidia is worst crappy old sh....! on mac
OOTB means support everything and not legacy crippled compatibility mode...

ps HOMEWORK compare mercury transmit with cuda, OpenCL and metal setting AT AFX CC2015-18
(after effects as you might know to cry try premiere with 2k or 4k too)

You can check for the availability of drivers here https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us . Its a bit tricky as all the menus have to be selected exactly right for the search to work:
Product Type:GeForce
Product Series: GeForce 600 Series
Product:GeForce GTX680
Operating System:Show All Operating Systems

That list will show macOS Mojave 10.14.xx when the drivers are ready. Select the Mojave entry and search and there will be the driver.
