Thank you for this tutorial, possibility to install driver on 10.9 for gtx 780 ? If so where can I find them?
Again thank you.
Thank you for your reply. Sorry for the noob question but what is it OOB ? ^^
I have an error when I watch a video with VLC :
OpenGL acceleration is not supported on your Mac
Out of the box. IE right away.
I have been trying to get my second card to work for every update since 10.9.2. The directions you have outlined here are the same as TonyMac’s site and I still can’t get my second card recognized. All of the details are here, http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/135997-nvidia-releases-alternate-graphics-drivers-10-9-4-334-01-02f02-4.html
post #39. I would be eternally grateful. I am stuck at 1.9.1 and can’t upgrade lest my second card become completely useless.
Its a Nvidia issue and they are working on a fix…
So is it just an issue with the 780 card? what I don’t get is why the first card works and the second card doesn’t. When I update. I have use of the 780 in the first PCI slot, but the second one says that it is an unknown card and is missing kexts. I am not an expert but to me it just seems weird that the same card would work fine OOB, but the second exact same card would not.
Hello rampagedev. I want activate the ECC but i don’t know how edit the dsdt. Can you help me?
What GPU do you have?
I have a nVidia GTX 550 Ti 1024 MB
Please review what you own as clearly you do not know what your card supports or does not support.
Means what my GPU no support ECC? I am not doubting of your knowledge but I thought that the family Fermi had support ECC. Sorry by bother you
NO. Only the Teslas and some work station cards.
I am hoping this may fix my issues, I am using the Sabertooth X79 and a 3960X. When I install a single video card in PCIEX16_1 and my wifi in PCIEX1_1, the system boots perfect as it has for months. When I add in my second video card in PCIEX16_2, the system hangs at various times during bootup then reboots itself and I have no video.
This is a DSDT issue. What version of OSX are you on?
Then update to the latest DMG.
the latest for 10.9 that you have posted?
Yes. You will need to reinstall the 10.8.5 stock appleHDA.
DUDE! you are so freaking AWESOME! thank you so much for the help!!
I installed the stock AppleHDA and now I lost my HDMI and Digital audio options. The only thing I have showing now is Virtual Audio Device and Wondershare Audio Device, neither of what I need.
Good. Now replace your extra folder with the one on the DMG and add the proper SSDT for your board to it. And then install the updated kexts and patches from the DMG.
Ok done but still no audio.
Look on the DMG.. ALC….
Thanks dude, when I get paid this week, I will be sure to send you a donation for your help. Keep up the good work!
lol. I guess you got it now.
I did get it working finally and sent ya a little something for the help.
Glad to hear it is now working. And thank you!
There is driver for Mac OSX 10.8.2?
There was. Might have been pulled. Update your system…
does your method work on osx 10.9+ ??
i have a laptop with these specs :
2450m , 6gb ddr3 , intel hd3000 work oob + nvidia 520mx ( identified wrong on osx) , hm65 chipset
No. Your Nvidia card will never work as you can not turn off Intel GPU in the BIOS. However you can use if for CUDA if you are luckily.
actually it is there in device info :
Chipset Model: NVIDIA Chip Model
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 0 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x1051
Revision ID: 0x00a1
ROM Revision: preset 1.0.0
please post back for a way to get it working !
mac osx 10.9 here still haven’t updated to 10.9.2

Do you use DSDT patch,Retial driver,Cuda and kext that you set up(attachment).
For using ECC, you are saying on must add the slot identification edit in your DSDT. I am using your the DSDT injection that you are kindly made available. It has “AAPL,slot-name”, “PCI x16″,.
Is this what you are referring as Slot identification edit?
If yes, I cannot get ECC enabled assuming my card GT640 supports ECC?
If not could you could you please give a working example of DSDT slot identification.
Thanks in advance
Please review the specs for your GPU.
link for 10.9.3:
Thanks… took them forever to add a official link I forgot about it.
GTX 780, 10.9.3, after I install the webdriver 334.01 boots up and GPU fan goes on max speed, Nvidia Driver Manager says “Unable to open the NVIDIA Driver Manager. Please try again or re-install the NVIDIA web driver package from the Nvidia website”.
Asus P9x79 WS, 3930k
Also saw your patched driver but dropbox link does not work anymore. Any ideas?
Test the 10.9.1 drivers
i am using your DSDT injecting method to inject my Gpu into DSDT
right now i can boot with graphics enabler = No
i have installed the nvidia web driver on my mavericks 10.9.4
but after injecting it into my DSDTi can’t see my graphics card in my nvidia panel
any idea why is that happened?
My CPU:intel Core i7 870
Gpu:MSI GTX 560ti Twin Frozr II
Mother Board:Asus Maximus III gene(1156 soket)
here is my dsdt with modified one and with unmodified one
pls help me
Slot ID. Think my edit has not be updated for that.
Where can i find the slot id ….
how to fix the slot id from DSDT ?
thanks for reply
You add it.
How to add it…
give me some hints….
O. Thought you did not know where to add it. I will give you a code example.
Method (_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero))
Return (Buffer (One)
Return (Package (0x0C)
0x00, 0x08, 0x00, 0x00
0x00, 0x08, 0x00, 0x00

any way i just fix it
saw your post on insanely mac forum
now it shows in ECC panel
i just remove the sun one from your patch
thanks for your reply
Hi rampagedev and thanks for this. However i tried using the nvidia web drivers and get worse results then before, get 63 fps in cinebench with these and 83 without. Am i doing something wrong or are the other ones better for my gtx 580? feel I’m not utilizing it to max since i get 120 in windows. Maybe its not possible to get near to windows scores?
Cinebench does not support Nvidia GPUS so this is a horrid way of benching. Also you can never compare Windows to Mac as they use different standards and ideology for GPU function so don’t compare as it is does not mean anything. Hope that clears that up.
I installed the drivers for 10.9.4 and added the kernel flags, and I get a much higher score on Unigine Valley benchmark than the Windows side, but World of Warcraft flies on Windows, (with ultra settings), but not on Mac. My build is an i7 2700K with EVGA 760 SC card. Still can’t get the pref pane to open up either. Downloading the CUDA files now, will see if that makes any difference. I had a Radeon HD 6850 previously, and it worked great, although the 760 fps on Win7 is like night and day.
Direct X vs OpenGL that’s what you are seeing. Not comparable in most cases as most games are not fully optimized for both. Bioshock infinite is a solid game for both if you have it you can rest both.
I am still having issues with the GTX 780 card. I have two and whenever I update, one works and the other doesn’t. In system profiler the card is shown but there is a message that reads “kext not loaded” for the second card. I have tried the fix you detail multiple times and have no clue why it isn’t working.
I don’t own dual GPUS of the same model so I can’t debug this issue.
so you don’t have any idea as to where I could start? Or what might be the source of such an issue?
I know what the issue is but how to correct it is hard to do remotely. Its a driver issue with a service.
