Updating nvidia drivers on macbook pro
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 If it helps, I was running an outdated version of El Capitan from October (I've been in a place with *really* bad internet), and I just updated to 10.11.5 today.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.After you have downloaded drivers you will noticed that they are packed with 7Zip archive (self extracting), unpack it (just remember the location). I started playing ED on my Mac Book Pro (I'm on a separate continent from my gaming PC) a few days ago.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.If you choose to update PLEASE understand what you are doing and how to reverse it.
I did notice that the Mac runs a little hotter with the n Vidia driver too, so I downloaded a third-party fan controller and set it for a range of 45-85 degrees C.
On Bootcamp, downloading the Nvidia driver for Windows made a big difference, and is completely stable. Unfortunately the Nvidia drivers don't appear to be very stable with the bespoke GT 650M in the MBPr .
