EVGA GTX 970 scoring at 191 in a 12-core MacPro 5,1

Recommended Posts

Unfleshed GTX 970 seems to be reporting a low score compared to the average. I have the latest NVIDIA web drivers installed and running OS X 10.11.6 (15G1510). Is there something I am missing? Do macs return results like this normally? Thanks!

191 Is very low for a GTX 970...

I'm not an expert, but there's a couple of things you could try..

  1. Make sure your computer doesn't have low power mode activated
  2. Make sure to go into the NVIDIA GeForce Experience app and check that everything is all the way up/satisfactory
  3. Make sure the card is getting adequate cooling and power

In general, just make sure no software is interfering with the performance. If you really want to get scientific, try to install Windows 10 or 8.1 and see if you still have a low score. If you still have a low score, I have no idea what's going on. If you don't have a low score, it might be because Hackintosh isn't agreeing with the card or vice versa, and you could try another version of Hackintosh from a different developer, etc...
