I was running an older version of El Capitan with an older version of the NVidia drivers.Once I updated the OS, I ran the auto-update in the n Vidia driver tool, and after that, it appeared to run fine with no issues.On Bootcamp, downloading the Nvidia driver for Windows made a big difference, and is completely stable.
Driver installed fine and appeared to detect the 650M. If it helps, I was running an outdated version of El Capitan from October (I've been in a place with *really* bad internet), and I just updated to 10.11.5 today. Unfortunately the Nvidia drivers don't appear to be very stable with the bespoke GT 650M in the MBPr .
I start up ED, get through the credits screens, and the game freezes at 0% on precaching shaders. Not sure this rises to the level of a "bug" yet, so I'm posting here in hopes that someone's figured this out. It causes the game to crash randomly every 20-30 mins.
I absolutely wouldn’t recommend doing this unless you know what you’re doing and confident in your ability to do so (that’s my disclaimer – if everything goes catastrophically wrong I cannot be held responsible).
Even if you’re confident about updating manually think before you do it, is it really necessary?
It is stable and runs smoothly but did get hot so the link to macsfancontrol was helpful and seems to calm the MBPro down nicely.
Back in October, I explained how you can install Ubuntu on a Mac.
But the instability is annoying with the GT650m - its not down to temp - it stays around 65-70 degs .
Just bought a GTX 960 for my mac pro 2009 - hopefully the Nvidia drivers will be stable on that.
It has 2.7 Ghz processing power, 1 gigabyte of graphic RAM, and 16 gigabytes of RAM. So, I went to system info, system report, and went to graphics, and it shows two video cards. Now, the first thing I noticed was how it was acting like one of those old TVs.
