Nvidia Graphics Driver Update for OS X 10.10.2
( ) FYI: On Feb. 27th they posted Graphics Driver Update 343.02.02f02 for OS X 10.10.2
Today (Jan 28th) Nvidia posted a download page for Graphics driver 343.02.02f01 for OS X 10.10.2 (build 14C109). Here's a clip from the main D/L page tab (other than version info typical boilerplate).
"New in Release 343.02.02f01
Graphics driver updated for OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 (14C109)
Contains performance improvements and bug fixes for a wide range of applications.
Includes NVIDIA Driver Manager preference pane."
See linked page for more info. (New Nvidia CUDA updates for this driver are below.)
Nvidia CUDA 6.5.46/6.5.45 Updates for OS X
Nvidia also posted a download page for CUDA 6.5.46 for OS X 10.10.x to 10.8.x, which has this note on GPU support:
"This driver does not support older generation GPUs with SM1.x. Please download the equivalent CUDA 6.5.45 which supports SM1.x"
Here's the download page for
CUDA 6.5.45, which has this note on card support:
"This driver does not support GeForce GTX980 and GTX970. Please download the equivalent CUDA 6.5.46 which supports GeForce GTX980 and GTX970"
Hopefully no issues with support for the new 10.10.2 driver
(John K. later wrote he's using the update OK. His GT120 card uses CUDA 6.5.45)
FYI/Update: According to later reports, the CUDA update did not fix problems reported by Adobe Premiere CC users in this long thread on NVIDIA Card w/Yosemite & Premiere major graphics problems.
