Nvidia Graphics Driver Update for macOS Sierra 10.12.1   [skip]
Download page for Nvidia Graphics Driver 367.15.10.15f01 for macOS Sierra 10.12.1 build 16B2555. Here's info from the download page:
"CUDA Application Support:
In order to run macOS Applications that leverage the CUDA architecture of certain NVIDIA graphics cards, users will need to download and install a compatible CUDA driver. CUDA driver which supports macOS Sierra 10.12.1 will be available at a later date.
(I assume that means Oct. 3rd CUDA 8.0.46 for Sierra v10.12 doesn't work.)

New in Release 367.15.10.15f01:

  • Graphics driver updated for macOS Sierra 10.12.1 (16B2555)
  • Contains performance improvements and bug fixes for a wide range of applications.
  • Includes NVIDIA Driver Manager preference pane.
  • Includes BETA support for iMac and MacBook Pro systems with NVIDIA graphics

    Release Notes Archive:
    This driver update is for Mac Pro 5,1 (2010) users.
    (2009 Mac Pro can run Sierra with the unofficial EFI 5,1 update)

    BETA support is for iMac 14,2 / 14,3 (2013), iMac 13,1 / 13,2 (2012) and MacBook Pro 11,3 (2013), MacBook Pro 10,1 (2012), and MacBook Pro 9,1 (2012) users."

  • Not seen D/L pages posted yet for the new builds (after security update installed) of OS X 10.11.6 and 10.10.5.

    Download of Security Updates for OS X 10.11.6 and OS X 10.10.5
    (Updated to include D/L link to Security Update 2016-006 for OS X 10.10.5)
    No details on the download pages (only "recommended for all users and improves the security of OS X") and not seen a doc on fixes yet but here's the download pages:

    FYI on Nvidia Driver Updates: Users of Nvidia's web drivers should know that new OS X updates (versions or later build numbers after Security Updates) break the current Nvidia web graphics driver. (Some non-Mac EFI cards are not supported by default OS X drivers.) They usually appear first in Nvidia's driver prefs update check. I'll post web D/L pages when spotted.
