I am trying to install resolve on my Mac (2010 silver cheese grater). 16 wouldn’t install but 14 did. I tried installing CUDA driver but am having no luck and no matter how I change the config in Resolve I can’t get it to work.
If you have not consulted the BMD Resolve Support page and reviewed their configuration guide, that would be the best place to start. There may not be a lot of help there, specific to a 10-year old platform, so you may have to step back a few documents. There are OS conflicts in later versions of Resolve and the vestiges of the AMD/nVidia war that will not allow you to run the default CUDA-capable Apple driver. nVidia has been updating their GPU drivers reactively — and each driver is OS-version sensitive. OS and GPU driver must match exactly unless you hack the kext line that examines the OS version agreement.
I am running Resolve 16 on a 2010 MacPro tower, so it can be done, but this particular cheese grater is not your dad’s MacPro anymore, either.
10.`12.6 (Sierra) is not compatible with CUDA. You need to downgrade your OS or give up. NVIDIA is not supporting any Apple-compatible products (Seems there is a war between Apple and NVidia). NVidia stopped all development on their CUDA system for macOS.
