Nvidia has released beta drivers for Mac is designed for graphic cards on architecture Pascal. The release took place following the announcement of the most powerful to date graphics accelerator Titan Xp.
New on architecture Pascal has the computing power of 12 teraflops, a record number of processor cores CUDA — 3840 with a clock frequency of 1.6 GHz and a memory GDDR5X volume of 12 GB and a bandwidth of 480 GB/s to 11.4 GB/s.
Now a new Nvidia graphics card can be connected to computers running macOS. For compatibility with macOS answer beta drivers Pascal, download, which are available on the website of the company. Archive WebDriver-378.05.05.05f01 contains drivers for all GPU architecture Pascal, starting with the GTX 1050 and ending with the newest Titan Xp.
It can be assumed that the release of Titan Xp was not accidental. Last week Apple confirmed that it creates an “entirely rethought” model of the workstation Mac Pro. The computer will have a design that will make it easier to update and change components. The launch of the next generation Mac Pro is expected next year.
Support Pascal on the system level means that Mac owners will be able to get their hands on the most powerful graphics card on the market. The new Nvidia is unlikely to please the gamers (macOS — not the friendliest OS for games), but the professionals involved in the installation of “heavy” 4K video or rendering complex 3D graphics, it will help to significantly accelerate workflow.
