Hi Peppy T
Can I ask if you or anyone who updated to 10.8.3, download the latest cuda drivers as well from http://www.nvidia.com/object/mac-driver-archive.html ?

I only installed the new OS update on my MBP. Want to wait and see what happens with this issue with Apple as the newest release does not adress the NVIDIA cards our machines use and I don't want to risk further instabilities. I now cannot use FCPX because of evertything written in this forum, but I can use Premiere Pro and all works well. My concern is if I install something new from Apple and end up messing up my current situation and lose being able to work with Premiere Pro and FCPX too then I'm in deep you know what.
For now I will adopt the stance of "If it ain't broken, don't fix it" and there is nothing in this new update that motivates me to update.
Let's wait and see.
But thanks for telling us there are new drivers....that's a good sign!

@le500: actually, it's almost okay to use FCPX now - no more crashes, not even when throwing Pixie Dust at it. So, while the issue is still with us and needs to be solved, at least you won't feel like throwing your machine out of the window every time it crashes/freezes. If you have a Time Machine back-up, I'd say there's no risk in an upgrade to 10.8.3 - and you can try FCPX as well, as long as you won't use Pixie Dust (and maybe other resembling titles/stuff).
There's still hope, sir - but you'll just have to take my word for it, as I can't say more for the time being.

Sorry I maybe a stupid question, but these specific drivers for your video card GTX 680MX, they only play gaming or in some way help to work with FCPX - Premiere Pro?
Have any of you installed them?
Currently Being ModeratedMar 15, 2013 9:44 AM (in response to matamatario)
@matamatario They don't do anything for FCPX users as FCPX does not take advantage of CUDA technology, but they do wonders for Premiere Pro and After Effects as they allow you to use the GPU graphics card to the fullest instead of just using RAM for previews. As for games they probably do a lot but I couldn't tell you as I have no games on my machine....sorry.
And YES I have installed them and you can find the instructions to install them here: http://www.vidmuze.com/how-to-enable-gpu-cuda-in-adobe-cs6-for-mac/

Thank you very much for your reply Le500.
I also do NOT play with my Mac
I'm just work whit it!
Therefore, the drivers of the link I've posted you have them installed?
Can I go too?
Currently I have installed the CUDA 5.0.37 driver for MAC
But I don't have installed the version of the link i've posted
thanks again for the info ....

If you upgrade your iMac's OS to version 10.8.3 then YES you will likely have to install the newest drivers. I have not installed the new ones yet because I have not upgraded my iMac to 10.8.3
There is nothing that I feel necessary or absolutly needed in the new OS update 10.8.3 so I will wait a while before updating.
My machine works perfectly with 10.8.2 so until there is a good reason to change it I am staying where I am now.

Thanks for your response le500
I do not think upgrading to 10.8.3 for now.
Sorry for my insistence, but I did not understand.
I installed the CUDA driver 5.0.37 driver for MAC
I wanted to know if I have to install these
Currently Being ModeratedMar 15, 2013 12:48 PM (in response to jonuk85)
sorry I was wrong link
This is the right one
Currently Being ModeratedMar 15, 2013 1:12 PM (in response to matamatario)
I have no idea if you should or should not install this driver as I am not familiar with what it supports. Out of my league, sorry. If any one understands this please jump in. Here is the english version of the link matamatario gives us: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-display-amd64-310.32-driver.html

Matamario are you italian?
Can I help you ? Im italian too...
Currently Being ModeratedMar 15, 2013 1:40 PM (in response to iTeppy)
I'm not italian but I too am interested in Matamario's question.
Which is : do you need to install both drivers to enable Cuda in CS6 ?
Thanks for your help.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 15, 2013 1:47 PM (in response to Sebastien Davis)
I misunderstood the question then. When you read what the second driver is all about it does not say anything about Cuda. SO NO you don't need to install the second driver mentionned by matamario to enable Cuda, just follow the instructions in the link I posted to install the driver after you downloaded it.

Updates: My top specs iMac is updated to 10.8.3 and I have been working on a 45 minutes video without any problems with the rendering or titles. So far so good.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 15, 2013 5:28 PM (in response to yweski)
Just got a call from Apple to ask me if I'd installed 10.8.3 and if the issue is solved - which it does seem to be. Have been unable to reproduce the problem by following the steps that would guarantee that FCPX would freeze.
So I'm a happy bunny, and this is a happy iMac.
