I own an early 2013 15'' MacBook Pro (MacBookPro10,1), and I've been running every macOS update till Mojave, included. The mac has two GPUs, which get selected automatically depending on the running apps:
- Intel HD Graphics 4000 (integrated)
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M (discrete)
Recently I've been reading about the fact that macOS Mojave has dropped any support for Nvidia GPUs, and digging further I've found out that users have been reporting issues with my model specifically. Apparently, since High Sierra there have been issues with the GeForce GT 650M and macOS, with GUI slow downs and crashes. I've found plenty of posts of people complaining about the lack of support and drivers from Apple.
Personally I have not observed any of these issues, but now I wonder. I know for sure that I've been using the discrete GPU often (I track my energy usage), but maybe I've just not noticed the slowdowns.
I've inspected the version of the Nvidia drivers (system report > software > extensions), and it says:
GeForce: Version: 12.0.24 Last Modified: 12/10/2018, 05:10 Bundle ID: com.apple.GeForce Notarised: Yes Loaded: Yes Get Info String: GeForce 12.0.24 3220.127.116.11.10.103 Obtained from: Apple Kind: Intel Architectures: x86_64 64-Bit (Intel): Yes Location: /System/Library/Extensions/GeForce.kext Kext Version: 12.0.0 Load Address: 18446743521870100000 Loadable: Yes Dependencies: Satisfied Signed by: Software Signing, Apple Code Signing Certification Authority, Apple Root CA
They seem to have been updated one year ago (with Mojave?), but that doesn't fit with what I've been reading about the total lack of support.
Does anyone know what's the current state of the game for my MacBook Pro model?
