Nvidia drivers for MacOS Mojave may be delayed

If you're hoping for graphics acceleration under Mojave on your Nvidia GPU, you may be in for a wait

A post from Nvidia CUDA Product Management team on the Nvidia forums seems to suggest that Nvidia engineers are still waiting for Apple’s permission, or their assistance, to develop and release drivers for Nvidia graphics cards under OS X 10.14.

The post says…

“Apple fully control 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”

…which rather gives the impression that development on drivers has not yet started, or cannot start without Apple’s permission. Certainly, the drivers will need to be certified by Apple before they can be released. However there is no estimated time frame for that to happen. The way things stand, it looks like there may be a rather lengthy wait.

This obviously doesn’t apply to older Nvidia cards which were already natively supported in MacOS like the EVGA GTX680 Mac Edition

If you’re using an older Mac Pro, or a hackintosh, and you haven’t already jumped ship to AMD graphics cards with their out-of-the-box support in MacOS, now may be the time. Check out our Hackintosh Graphics card performance comparison in Mojave to help you make a decision.
