Nvidia CUDA 387.128 & Graphics Driver Updates for macOS 10.13.3, 10.12.6, 10.11.6
(These are Nvidia updates for the Apple macOS/OS X updates below.)
  • (Jan. 25th) CUDA 387.128 for macOS (Here's a direct download link)
    "CUDA driver update to support CUDA Toolkit 9.1, macOS 10.13.3 and NVIDIA display driver 378.
    Supported macOS - 10.13.x"

  • (Jan. 25th) Quadro & GeForce Driver 378.05.05.25f06 for macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G1212).
    (Here's a direct download link)

  • (Jan. 25th) Quadro & GeForce Driver 346.03.15f12 for OS X 10.11.6 (15G19009).
    (Here's a direct download link)
    The driver page text mentions a very old CUDA v7.5.30, but If you already have CUDA installed, check the prefs for an update. (The last CUDA version that listed OS X 10.11.x support on the download page was CUDA 8.0.90, but the D/L page listing isn't always accurate.)

  • (Jan. 24th) Quadro & GeForce Driver 387. for macOS 10.13.3 build 17D47.
    (here's a direct D/L link) All their High Sierra driver pages have an install note:
    "Installation Note:
    Because of improvements in macOS security, the Security & Privacy Preferences may open during the installation process. If it does, click "Allow" in order for the NVIDIA Graphics Driver to load, then return to the Installer and click "Restart"."
(Same direct download links for 10.12.6/10.11.6 I posted before the download pages were online. 10.12.6/10.11.6 new builds are with Security Update 2018-001 installed.)
macOS 10.13.3, Security Updates for Sierra & El Capitan (Info and Download pages)
See Details and Download pages for macOS 10.13.3 (Delta, Combo and iMac Pro versions) and Security Update 2018-001 for macOS Sierra (10.12.6) and OS X El Capitan (10.11.6). (Also info on security fixes in Safari 11.0.3 for OS X 10.11.6, 10.12.6, and 10.13.3.)
