Nvidia GTX Titian For Mac


The Nvidia GTX Titan has been out on the market for several month. However users did not have access to any working drivers for the card and installing 10.8.3 update made the system un-bootable with the card installed. Since then Apple has provided developers with a new Beta for Mac OS X 10.8.4. The latest Beta gives the Titan full functionality under Mac OS X.

To enable the card a clean install of Mac OS X 10.8.3 was performed using another graphics card. Then the 10.8.4 Combo Update was installed as was CUDA from Nvidia. After verifying the system booted after the updated was applied the Nvidia GTX Titan card was installed. Then proceeded with booting with the card installed.
