Nvidia Graphics Driver Update for macOS Sierra 10.12 (Info/Download)
Download page for Nvidia Graphics Driver 367.15.10.05f01 for macOS Sierra 10.12 build 16A323. 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 will be available at a later date.
(Update: video topics page has Nvidia CUDA 8.0.46 with macOS Sierra support.)

New in Release 367.15.10.05f01:

  • Graphics driver updated for macOS Sierra 10.12 (16A323)
  • 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."

  • (I've added this link to the video topics page which has previous Nvidia driver updates for 10.11.6, 10.10.5, 10.9.5, and the current CUDA version that supports those OS's.)

    FYI: This and several earlier driver updates list "Beta" support for some iMacs and MBPs (in page post above). A reader with a 2012 MBP wrote he had problems with this driver in Sierra.

    " NVidia Driver 367.15.10.05f01
    Just a heads up. When I installed the above driver for my Mid 2012 Retina MacBook Pro, Safari kept freezing and causing OS Sierra to restart. This was happening 5-6 times a day. I reverted back to the default driver and all is well. So folks having problems may want to revert to the default driver.
    - John "

    Thanks. Not sure there would have been any benefit to using it for the MBP and being a first release driver for a major OS upgrade (and new Safari v10), there's likely still bugs present. (As usual, lots of posts in Apple's forums on problems, including Safari. And not just with extensions although I expected those to be broken.)
