Updating nvidia drivers on macbook pro
I've heard it said in this subreddit that the Web drivers are for only those with cards unsupported by the OS, and that everyone else should use the native OS Nvidia drivers, which Apple periodically updates but are behind the Web drivers.
Not so much that the latter are bad, but that they aren't necessary and using them adds another point that could break. This is a good fix for any problems hackintosh users may be experiencing as well, I personally use this script with my hackintosh with a 1060 and it fixes all the UI lag I've experienced, Nvidia's quality control has really gone downhill...
This driver includes the new NVIDIA Driver Manager preference pane, as well as an optional menu bar item for quick access to the preference pane and basic functions.
The preference pane can be accessed normally through the System Preferences.
I've tried downloading updates from NVidia, but they are not installing. These should install fine, if they don't you should tell us what it tells you about why it can't install them. The site now says: As part of the NVIDIA Verde Notebook Driver Program, this is a reference driver that can be installed on supported NVIDIA notebook GPUs.
CUDA Application Support: In order to run Mac OS X Applications that leverage the CUDA architecture of certain NVIDIA graphics cards, users will need to download and install the 7.5.20 driver for Mac located here.
New in Release 3f01: Release Notes Archive: This driver update is for Mac Pro 5,1 (2010), Mac Pro 4,1 (2009) and Mac Pro 3,1 (2008) users.
