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 the driver for Mac located here. a compatible CUDA driver. A CUDA driver which supports macOS High Sierra 10.13 will be available at a later date.
Because of improvements in macOS security, the Security & Privacy Preferences may open during the installation process. If it does, click "Allow" in order for the NVIDIA Graphics Driver to load, then return to the Installer and click "Restart".

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'."
I've seen so many typos/mistakes in the D/L pages that I originally thought this version was High Sierra compatible since the 10.13 driver page originally linked to it (link later removed) and they usually post a CUDA update along with the new OS driver. (BTW: Lou later said surprisingly the previous CUDA 8.0.90 actually worked in High Sierra 10.13?)
"USING HIGH SIERRA? Update to SoftRAID 5.6.3 to avoid kernel panics:
In High Sierra the behavior of some macOS kernel functions changed. These changes could result in kernel panics if you were running SoftRAID 5.6.1. If you are planning to upgrade to High Sierra, it's important that you also update to SoftRAID 5.6.3, which includes driver modifications to eliminate these kernel panics, and fix other issues connected to macOS 10.13 High Sierra
For more information and steps to ensure a safe upgrade to High Sierra visit our compatibility page."
The compatibility page includes download links for SoftRAID 5.6.3 full and lite versions and important steps for SoftRAID users to follow before upgrading to macOS High Sierra. (Down the page also has info on SoftRAID 6.0 Beta.)
FYI for anyone that used the BETA High Sierra install - it allowed Fusion drives to be APFS, which the public release does not support. Apple has a beta site page on Preparing your Fusion Drive Mac for the macOS High Sierra install with a step-by-step guide to converting an APFS Fusion drive back to "MacOS Extended (Journaled)" format. (Of course requires a Time Machine backup to restore/migrate your data to the reformatted Fusion drive, using the macOS High Sierra Setup Assistant.)
Earlier articles on Apple's APFS and preparing for High Sierra install in previous news archive.
(FYI: Users of Nvidia's web drivers know macOS Updates break the current installed version. I'd switch to the default Apple driver and reboot before updating, if your card is supported with the default drivers. (If not, wait for an update.) I post any updates (graphics driver and CUDA) when spotted in the news and video topics page.)
