GTX 780 Ti cards in Netstor GPU expander driver problems
on Feb 26, 2014 at 12:05:07 pm

Hi All,

I've just received a Netstor GPU expander and 2 x GTX 780Ti cards. I though the expander would overcome the power issues and we'd be plain sailing…However I can't find any drivers to make the 780 ti's show up and I'm a bit stumped. Any advice appreciated.

Thanks, adam

Just got 10.9.2 to see my Titan Black in slot 1, no cuda yet. Wouldn't recognize it in the expansion chassis though. Likely need to wait for nvidia.

re the 780 on 10.8.5 OS
try this... its a bit of a long path but this should work
go to the Nvidia web site
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
select the OS and a card supported by that OS, like the Quadro K5000 for Mac

when you download and install the driver, nvidia installs a driver manager in system preferences
now you can use that driver manager to update for your 780’s.

Worth a try.

Interestingly, driver manager gets messed up and wont launch anymore FYI with latest auto update this morning, cuda driver as well keeps Resolve from launching so I had to roll back to previous version (5.5.28) but still cant get driver manager to even launch from system prefs now.

So is it safe to say that currently Titan Black and 780ti cards cannot be used in Resolve until nVidia update drivers?

I received this tweet yesterday from a marketing guy at Nvidia:

Greg Estes ‏@gregestes5
@mainframeuk GTX780Ti is not officially supported on the Mac. Driver that may work will be posted tomorrow.

These links also interesting and out tech support guy going to try on Monday.

Yes, but it looks like they are working on the cuda driver. Ti Black works fine (Web, Mail, Preview but NOT RESOLVE!) w/o cuda in my 5.1 cMP. This is a test setup and I would not plan on using it for paying work until the cuda driver is released and I bang on it for a while.

Will keep updating.

Hello Clark,

Any updates?

I hope you don't mind me asking...
Is the GTX 780 Ti on it's own sufficient for Resolve on a MacPro 5,1, 12 cores?
How do you power the card?

I look forward to your updates.

Thanks,
Alex

Sorry for the delay! Ti Black is working great with Resolve and Sapphire (which must have cuda gpu), fast and stable. Fine with Premiere Pro CC and FCP Studio too, although I'm not a power user of these apps.

780 with 6gb is on the way which might be a cheaper alternative, might get two for almost the price of one TiB.

Internal power used to be easily, FSP Group Booster X5, but this no longer appears to be available so some sort of external power supply kludge might have to suffice.

GPU Ram is very important as you add higher than HD resolutions, multiple corrections or ofx, glad to see another 6gb cuda card (780) on the horizon.

Hi again Clark,

Did the GTX 780 6GB get to you?
Did it work on your MP 5,1? Cuda, OpenCl, Premiere, Resolve?

I also run FCP7 and Logic 9, but mostly, I'd like to know that Premiere, After Effects, Media Encoder and Resolve can use it.

Thanks again,

Alex

Sorry for the confusion, I meant that a 6Gb 780ti was announced - not yet shipping as far as I know.
