Hello folks, I know I've seen a few other people mention something similar, but wanted to share my experience of using 10.3.3 on iMac Pro: I get a visible performance hit (laggy mouse, a few flickers, laggy scrolling in a web browser). I'm absolutely sure it is related to updating from 10.3.2 to 10.3.3 and/or the associated nVidia webdriver / eGPU package, as I didn't do anything else on my system. I just did a system restore back to 10.3.2 and it's working perfectly again.

2017 27" iMac Pro (Vega64) [7th,10C,W] + GTX 1080 Ti @ 32Gbps-TB3 (AKiTiO Node) + macOS 10.13.2 [build link]

Ah great! The version 156 download has been fixed in the first post, that's fast, @devild must have had a version 156 still lying around.

I'm saying that because there is still a Page not found 404 error at the InsanelyMac link for version 156. And also, when updating from the previous version I get an Unable to connect to NVIDIA message. So there's something going on -- could it be another updated version due to user problems with version 156. I'll hold off for a day or two longer.

Hey, the link to the package installer doesn't seem to work anymore is there a new one? Sorry, I don't know how to install the package the normal way, is there a walk through somewhere?

Which package exactly?

The Nvidia drivers, the eGPU enabler? I tested both links and they did work...

Yes, I only used it maybe twice in the passed. Wish I knew to use it before updating.

That did it! I deleted all files in that folder, disabled auto-updating, rebooted and I got my eGPU functionality back!

So now when I reboot, it won't update to 10.13.3 (thank god!)

Thank you both SO much for your patience and help...seriously, thank you!
