Close

The US-based GPU stalwart NVIDIA has another big news for the tech and gaming world. The Santa Clara-based GPU specialist is about to bring its top-tier graphics tech to the Apple world in the very near future. NVIDIA made the huge announcement this week, the Mac driver for the company's Pascal graphics cards are now coming soon.

The Santa Clara-based GPU stalwart has just made a huge announcement this week. According to Digital Trends, NVIDIA is about to release a MacOS driver for their Pascal architecture GPUs. This has come to a big surprise for everyone that is because the Cupertino-based firm has not sold a Mac Pro on the market that can officially accept a PCI video card in almost half a decade. Meanwhile, there's already some speculation that an add-in graphics may soon make a comeback to the Apple Mac platform.

Currently, the Santa-Clara company does not have anywhere near the stake or level in the hotly contested graphics chip market that AMD and Intel have enjoyed for years. But one thing is for sure here, NVIDIA has a strong grip of the majority of the add-in GPU market. And If goes well and Apple started to offer an upgradeable graphics cards to Mac Pro users, the GPU stalwart NVIDIA would likely benefit the most. A big win for the entire company.

In other NVIDIA-related news, the Santa Clara-based company has also announced GeForce Driver 381.65 support for the Windows 10 Creators Update, and the newly released NVIDIA Titan Xp, which now the fastest graphics card in the market, the PC Gamer reported.

According to NVIDIA, the newly released NVIDIA GeForce Driver 381.65 supports 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and newer versions of Windows OS only. Older versions such as Windows XP and Vista are not supported by the newly released driver. In addition, the new GeForce Driver 381.65 also brings a few number of improvements on board.

These include support for Quake Champions Closed Beta, support for Dolby Vision in games, support for Dolby Vision in games, two new NVIDIA Control Panel options, an option to override the desktop color of Windows 10 platform, and last, the ability to disable the self-refresh power saving feature of G-Sync.
