Nvidia Graphics Driver Update for macOS Sierra 10.12.1 build 16B2657   [2nd update for 10.12.1]
Download of Nvidia Graphics Driver 367.15.10.15f03 for macOS Sierra 10.12.1 build 16B2657 posted Nov. 4th. Here's info from the download page (other than version/builds, same info as Oct. 25th f01 release):
"CUDA Application Support:
In order to run macOS Applications that leverage the CUDA architecture of certain NVIDIA graphics cards, users will need to download and install a compatible CUDA driver. CUDA driver which supports macOS Sierra 10.12.1 will be available at a later date.
(See Video topics page for CUDA 8.x updates with Sierra support.)

New in Release 367.15.10.15f03:

  • Graphics driver updated for macOS Sierra 10.12.1 (16B2657)
  • Contains performance improvements and bug fixes for a wide range of applications.
  • Includes NVIDIA Driver Manager preference pane.
  • Includes BETA support for iMac and MacBook Pro systems with NVIDIA graphics

    Release Notes Archive:
    This driver update is for Mac Pro 5,1 (2010) users.
    (2009 Mac Pro can run Sierra with the unofficial EFI 5,1 update)

    BETA support is for iMac 14,2 / 14,3 (2013), iMac 13,1 / 13,2 (2012) and MacBook Pro 11,3 (2013), MacBook Pro 10,1 (2012), and MacBook Pro 9,1 (2012) users."

  • FYI: A reader (thanks Jmac) later said this f03 driver did not work with his 10.12.1 install. (Assume it was the original 10.12.1 release (build 16B2555). I'm not what is the reason for the later build/driver.)
