Nvidia Graphics Driver 346.01.01f01 for OS X 10.10.2
Nvidia download page for Graphics driver 346.01.01f01 for OS X 10.10.2 build 14C1514. (The build after installing Security Update 2015-003.) Here's a clip from the main D/L page tab (other than version info, just typical boilerplate).
"New in Release 346.01.01f01
  • Graphics driver updated for OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 (14C1514)
  • Contains performance improvements and bug fixes for a wide range of applications.
  • Includes NVIDIA Driver Manager preference pane."
  • See linked page/tabs for more info. Also a new Nvidia CUDA Update for OS X (7.0.35), as it keys on driver version.
    (As of April 2nd, did not see any later updates for OS X 10.9.5 and 10.8.5 than posted on March 17th.)

    Nvidia CUDA 7.0.35 Update for OS X
    Nvidia posted a download page for CUDA 7.0.35 for OS X 10.10.x and 10.9.x. (No longer lists 10.8.x.) As before, it has this note on older GPU support:
    "This driver does not support older generation GPUs with SM1.x. Please download CUDA 6.5.45 which supports SM1.x"

    Here's the download page for CUDA 6.5.45 (from Jan. 28th, 2015) and CUDA 6.5.46 which also listed 10.8.x support. I'm not able to test this but wonder if it helps users that have reported problems in the past. (For example in this long thread on NVIDIA Card/CUDA & Adobe Premiere graphics problems.)
