    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 any currently installed Nvidia web graphics driver. (Some non-Mac EFI cards are not supported by default OS X drivers.) Nvidia web driver updates usually appear first in Nvidia's driver prefs update check.
    Update: On Jan. 25th, 2017 Nvidia posted Graphics Driver 367.15.10.35f01 for macOS 10.12.3 build 16D32. (Initial public release, non-beta.)
