Download Nvidia CUDA 8.0.63 Update (supports macOS 10.12.3 driver)
Info from the Jan. 27th dated CUDA 8.0.63 for Mac download page:
"New Release 8.0.63
  • CUDA driver update to support macOS 10.12 and NVIDIA display driver 367.15.10.35f01
    (The driver for Sierra 10.12.3 released Jan. 25th)

    Supported MAC OS X 10.12.x and 10.11.x

    An alternative method to download the latest CUDA driver is within Mac OS environment. Access the latest driver through System Preferences > Other > CUDA. Click 'Install CUDA Update' Supports all NVIDIA products available on Mac HW.

    Note: this driver does not support the older generation GPUs with compute capability 1.x. To find out the compute capability of your GPU, consult the following links:
    https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CUDA."

  • Previous CUDA versions are available at Mac CUDA Drivers Archive.
      

    Download Nvidia Graphics Driver Update for macOS Sierra 10.12.3 (16D32)
    Download page for Nvidia Graphics Driver 367.15.10.35f01 for macOS Sierra 10.12.3 build 16D32. (As of post time D/L page incorrectly has El Capitan in release notes and compatible mac pros list. I suspect El Capitan driver page was used as a template and not fully corrected.)
    Info from the download page:
    "New in Release 367.15.10.35f01:
  • Graphics driver updated for Mac OS X El Capitan 10.12.3 (16D32)
  • 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: (corrected list)
    This driver update is for Mac Pro 5,1 (2010) users.
    (Mac Pro 5,1 is also ID for 2012 model. 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."

  • (Update - The note on CUDA now goes to the new CUDA 8.0.63 which lists support for this driver.)

    BTW: Checking on Feb 3rd, I noticed macOS Sierra 10.12.3 wasn't in the driver search web page OS menu list anymore, but the above driver D/L page still worked. (Maybe just a temporary mistake? Hopefully not for a reason.)
      

    Download Nvidia Graphics Driver Update for OS X 10.11.6 (build 15G1217)
    Download page for Nvidia Graphics Driver 346.03.15f06 for OS X 10.11.6 build 15G1217. (Build number with Security Update 2016-003 Supplemental installed.) Here's a clip from the page (same as before except for build/driver version info):
    "New in Release 346.03.15f06:

  • Page text (still) mentions CUDA v7.5.29, but link now goes to new CUDA version 8.0.63.

    (I've added today's nvidia driver updates to the video topics page which has previous Nvidia driver updates for 10.12.2, 10.12.1, 10.11.6, 10.10.5, 10.9.5, and the current and previous CUDA versions.)
