NVIDIA today released new drivers that make its Pascal graphics cards compatible with a Mac.

The drivers support all 10 Series GPUs, including the GTX 1050 through GTX 1080 Ti, and the newly-announced GTX Titan Xp.

Although you cannot buy a Mac with an NVIDIA graphics card built-in, the company has long been supporting users who wish to buy its components for Hackintosh systems running macOS. Until now, however, you had to settle for older 9 Series cards.

Not anymore. Thanks to NVIDIA’s latest Web Driver, version 378.05.05.05f01, all 10 Series cards are now compatible with macOS, including:

  • GTX 1050
  • GTX 1060
  • GTX 1070
  • GTX 1080
  • GTX 1080 Ti
  • GTX Titan Xp

Regardless of which card you choose, you only need one driver package. Once downloaded and installed on a macOS machine, you can enable NVIDIA graphics by opening up System Preferences, clicking NVIDIA Driver Manager, then selecting NVIDIA Web Driver.

Of course, you might not need to built a Hackintosh to take advantage of NVIDIA graphics cards in the not-so-distant future. Apple recently confirmed it is working on an all-new Mac Pro with a modular design that should allow users to finally upgrade things like the graphics card.

    So long as you don’t have to flash the graphics video card like you had to do in the past. It wasn’t easy, not at all. You should be able to install a PC graphics card and not have to use a specific Apple version that you can’t easily buy!
