    in theory it should with the Web drivers

    its just 2 Maxwell GM107 GPUs on one card and a F*ck load of DisplayPort outputs :)

    but buy with caution as I cant say 100% if it will work just that in theory it should...

    It looks like the previous version (NVS 510) worked more-or-less fine either with native drivers or the NVIDIA web drivers:

    This guy seems to have the NVS810 (two of them) working in MacOS, on a hackintosh http://resolume.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14642

    Wow I can’t believe there is native support. That is great!im ordering it and giving it a go in my 5,1. Thanks so much guys!

    Oh I guess one follow up question, anyone have any idea how flushable this card is?

    remember being a Maxwell based card it will need web drivers

    as for flashing it, your only option is to talk to MVC he will do custom cards not listed on his website sometimes, maybe give him a shout and see what he says?

    I'm glad you are trying this out, but I hope you ordered from a place with a decent return policy. I am a little bit skeptical and giving this a 50/50 chance.

    Sure the NVS 510 worked, but that was single GPU and this NVS 810 is dual GPU in a single card.

    The GTX 690 was two GTX 680 GPUs on a single card. The MacOS Nvidia drivers supported the GTX 690 and it worked, but it only worked as a single 680 and it only recognized half of the GPU RAM.

    So some good news bad news.

    Bad news is, the NVS 810 does NOT work with the native drivers. The Good news is DOES work with the web drivers!

    There is one weird caveat that I suspect will not apply to others, but you should know. I have 6 30" cinema displays that show 2550x1600. Any of the monitors that I plugged into the DisplayPort to DVI adapters (provided) would not show up in full resolution. Furthermore, I have one display that uses a display port, but for whatever reason, the USB connection from the apple DVI to mini DisplayPort USB is dead (basically means you cannot dim that screen from the System Prefs). That monitor, also, will not show full resolution. My guess is their DVI adapters are not dual link so you'd need the apple Duallink DVI to minidisplay port adapters.

    My guess is if I replace my now ancient 30" displays with some more modern 4k screens, it would work fine, but there you go.

    This card is actually a really great card in a lot of ways. Not only is it a single slot, it doesnt even need one of the power cords, it runs fully from the PCI slot. While it's not super fast, it's faster than say the 5870 by a decent bit, and leaves you 3 full slots free for other things. So if youre in need of a video wall project of some sort, I could totally see slapping 2 of these in and getting 16 screens (or I guess even 4 cards and getting up to 32 screens).

    Does anyone know, would the NVIDIA NVS 810 support Mojave?

    Sorry for being daft. Are Maxwell cards known to be compatible with Mojave?

    Nvidia hasn’t yet released a Mojave driver.

    Ah, ok, so then it's a big "no" on being Mojave compatible. :D

    ^^^^At the moment. Those of us with Maxwell and Pascal (and soon Volta) cards are eagerly awaiting Nvidia's release of the Web Driver for Mojave.
