Nvidia cards are not yet compatible with macOS Mojave

Mac users with Nvidia graphics cards find themselves somewhat frustrated. So far the graphics released in 2014 and later, not compatible with macOS Mojave, Apple's operating system that has been with us for 6 weeks. Therefore, they cannot enjoy all the novelties of Mojave, such as dark mode.

The affected graphs are the based on the Maxwell, Pascal and Turing architecture. But the controversy arises why, to the frustration of the users, an Nvidia spokesperson affirms that they have released the drivers for the graphics, but it is Apple who does not approve.

In fact, Nvidia asks its users to contact Apple directly, so that they offer you the reasons for the delay. Apple so far has not spoken and users are beginning to get impatient. But they are not lNvidia models from 2014 and later those with Mojave incompatibilities. Mac Pros from mid 2010 to mid 2012 that have been updated with Nvidia graphics may have new incompatibility issues.

Apparently, it is possible to update to Mojave with these graphics, but since it does not have the specific drivers, andPerformance is lower and you experience erratic results, that is, it does not offer the expected performance. Users confirm this issue and recommend reverting to macOS High Sierra.

To perish the problem arises with Metal. The controllers will be fully compatible with Metal and will return the expected user experience. But to date, users of such popular graphics as the GeForce GTX 1080, cannot take advantage of Mojave. According to Apple, the graphics Quadro K5000 and Nvidia's GeForce GTX 680 do support Mojave, if they are incorporated into Macs from 2012 or later. Let's remember that Mojave is compatible with these same Macs and it was rumored that the reason is Metal. The exception is the Mac Pro, which is compatible with Mojave starting with the 2010 models. Lastly, Nvidia graphics with Kepler technology, found on Macs from 2012 to 2014 if it is compatible with Mojave.

Be that as it may, Nvidia and Apple have to get going to solve these incidents with users as soon as possible.

    Nvidia needs to unlock its cards, just like amd, to use them in different operating systems, amd can be used with any operating system without problems ... but the problem with nvidia is that it locks its systems for exclusive use ...
