Nvidia CUDA 7.0.61 Update for OS X (Yosemite and Mavericks)
Nvidia posted a download page for CUDA 7.0.61 for OS X 10.10.x and 10.9.x. (Dated Aug. 10th, 2015.) As before, it has this note on older GPU support:
"This driver does not support older generation GPUs with SM1.x (compute capability 1.x)."

Previous CUDA 7.x release for OS X was CUDA 7.0.52 from July 2nd news.

(I try to keep the latest Nvidia Graphics Drivers for OS X Yosemite, Mavericks and Mountain Lion linked on the video topics page, although the Nvidia driver prefs check may find newer ones at times.)
