DevTalk Post on MacOS 10.14 Mojave Nvidia Drivers
Terra & Adam sent a FYI on a Devtalk post FAQ about MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) NVIDIA drivers:
"Developers using Macs with NVIDIA graphics cards are reporting that after upgrading from 10.13 to 10.14 (Mojave) they are experiencing rendering regressions and slow performance.

Apple fully controls drivers for Mac OS. But if Apple allows, our engineers are ready and eager to help Apple deliver great drivers for Mac OS 10.14 (Mojave).

The Team at Nvidia"

I wondered why there's been no web Graphics driver updates posted for Mojave yet. Usually updates were posted within a week or so of the OS update release. Granted Mojave was a major update but it's been almost a month now. (I assumed Nvidia would be able to post driver updates on the web as they've done for years now. The web graphics drivers also supported more card models than the bundled driver.) Hopefully Nvidia is able to post updates for Mojave soon, or at least assist Apple with drivers in the next OS update.

(Both Terra & Adam also sent this techpowerup link on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.)
