...but breaks CUDA with no CUDA update. Be warned. Would be nice to release in concert, no?
v. 313.01.02f01

thanks for the hint. So I'll wait a few hours, usually an updated CUDA driver follows a new GPU driver release quite ... soonish.

CUDA 5.0.59 works with new web driver from what I can tell. Only control panel prompts for update.

As of 0845EST, I was unable to download the driver from nVidia. Their PHP code (on a Windows IIS server?!) is FUBAR'd:

Code:
Warning: require(includes/functions.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in \\hqxapp04\content\DriverDownload-March2009\confirmation.php on line 2

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'includes/functions.php' (include_path='e:\php\5.2.6\includes') in \\hqxapp04\content\DriverDownload-March2009\confirmation.php on line 2
Grrr!

On the nvidia download site (http://www.nvidia.com/object/macosx-313.01.02f01-driver.html) you can switch to the "Additional Information" tab in their website. Have a look at step 5 and download the installer package from there. This worked for me.

The correct Nvidia link is now working for the OS10.8.4 driver update:

any improvements from the OSX 10.8.4 driver?
I would say there's a decrease in performance, at least in OpenCL. I ran a LuxMark 2 Sala test and got over 300 points less from the Web driver than using stock 10.8.4.

thanks for the info, I'll stick to the stock 10.8.4 driver since it seems to be working fine.
