    Just installed the Combo Update and of course it breaks the Nvidia Web Driver. Cuda 6.0.37 still working. Apple Driver is 310.10.35f08.

    Just ran the update, GPU will not wake from sleep anymore. Have to hard reboot if my computer decides to sleep. Anyone else experiencing this?

    The update was released like an hour ago. I'm sure we'll be seeing a web driver in the next day or two.

    I'm certain Nvidia will have a new driver out shortly.

    People with GTX780 TI and Titan Black should probably wait to update to 10.9.3, but I haven't tested yet.

    If you update to 10.9.3, the nVidia CUDA prefpane tells you CUDA 5.5.47 is no good and tells you to upgrade to 6.0.37.

    Can you be more specific that "did not work"? What went wrong exactly?

    I wonder if 10.9.3 at least "plays nice" with an older Nvidia card like my iMac's GT 650M…. ? Anyone tried it?

    And since I never download the "direct-from-nVidia-website" drivers anyways, then this issue should not affect me? Right? Right?

    The Web Driver update is working fine on my Gigabyte MVC flashed GTX 780. However, Cuda says it needs an update, and that update is not yet available. But, Cuda is working - 6.0.37.

    10.9.3 is working fine with a nVidia GTX 660 (PC version) I have installed in a MacPro 1,1, so pretty sure it'll be fine with an official Apple card.

    Can I install the new web drivers before doing the OS update?

    I'm running the 780 Ti classified, so if I can't then it present a problem because I won't be able to boot.

    I have two Titan Blacks coming in this weekend for CUDA rendering. Wondering if I'll be able to use them. Have held off of Mavericks because of OpenGL issues that are supposedly fixed in 10.9.3. But it looks like there's a chance that it might break some driver stuff. Anyone successfully running non-flashed Titan Black or 780Ti cards on 10.9.3?

    If you have an existing working card that's not a Titan Black or GTX 780 Ti you should be able to update the OS and install the new Nvidia web driver just fine.

    The problem is if you're in my shoes: I have a GTX 780 Ti Classified. I can't update the drivers without doing an OS update, but if I do an OS update then my computer won't boot with this card.

    I'm hoping someone will tell me/show me a work around for doing the driver update like last time.

    Oh, now I follow. The newer GPU chips need the new web driver to work with 10.9.3. Then I should be able to update to Mavericks and get the latest web driver both with my GTX 670 or 770 installed before swapping them out with the Titan Blacks. If I do that, seems like I should be good to go. Thanks~

    Just updated to 334.01.01f01 with my GTX 680 4GB and am having a weird issue on startup. For whatever reason the screen gets really zoomed in and even going and trying to change settings via Displays doesn't help. The only remedy for the problem is to unplug and then replug my DVI cable, and then it starts working fine.

    Anyone else seen anything like this?

    I'll add to the weirdness. I have a flashed Zotac 680 4GB in my MP and I just rant the update. When it rebooted, I still had the boot screen, but as machine booted to the login window I lost my video signal.

    I had to switch from the dual-link DVI cable I was using (it came with the monitor) and dig up an HDMI cable. I have video again (I am posting, after all), though I should check and see if I still have a boot screen on HDMI since this is literally the first time I've used the HDMI port on the card.

    Everything appears to work fine on my 2012 3.33 6-core here with a evga GTX570. Just played a little bioshock infinite.

    I have a Mac Pro 1,1 with a GTS 450 - with 10.9.2 using apple driver I was able to use dual screens ( cinema display and an NEC monitor ). After updating to 10.9.3 I had a black screen at login and the system didn't detect either screens. Installed the latest Nvidia driver and I now have a working desktop, but only the primary screen. Any suggestions?
