NVIDIA® CUDA Toolkit 11.0 no longer supports development or running applications on macOS. While there are no tools which use macOS as a target environment, NVIDIA is making macOS host versions of these tools that you can launch profiling and debugging sessions on supported target platforms.
You may download all these tools here. Note that the Nsight tools provide the ability to download these macOS host versions on their respective product pages.

- The last vestiges of Nvidia and Apple’s long- term relationship are ending shortly. On Monday Nvidia published the release notes for the next update of its CUDA platform and noted that “CUDA 10.2.
Please visit each tool's overview page for more information about the tool and its supported target platforms.
The macOS host tools provided are:
- Nsight Systems - a system profiler and timeline trace tool supporting Pascal and newer GPUs
- Nsight Compute - a CUDA kernel profiler supporting Volta and new GPUs
- Visual Profiler - a CUDA kernel and system profiler and timeline trace tool supporting older GPUs (see installation instructions, below)
- cuda-gdb - a GPU and CPU CUDA application debugger (see installation instructions, below)
For CUDA developers who are on macOS 10.13, it is recommended to not upgrade to Mojave. Developers may not be able to use Xcode 10 to build GPU applications or run CUDA applications. Both macOS 10.13.6 and Xcode 9.4 support CUDA and work great with CUDA 10. NVIDIA is working with Apple to get Mojave to support CUDA.

Instructions for installing cuda-gdb on the macOS
- This tar archive holds the distribution of the CUDA 11.0 cuda-gdb debugger front-end for macOS.
Native macOS debugging is not supported in this release, only remote debugging to other CUDA enabled targets.
- To install:
- Create an installation directory
- Download the cuda-gdb-darwin-11.0.tar.gz tar archive into $INSTALL_DIR above
- Unpack the tar archive
- tar fxvz cuda-gdb-darwin-11.0.tar.gz
- Add the bin directory to your path
- Run cuda-gdb --version to confirm you're picking up the correct binaries
- cuda-gdb --version
You should see the following output:

macOS 10.13.6 (most recent version of High Sierra)
macOS 10.14 (Mojave) and later does not currently support CUDA so do not upgrade beyond macOS 10.13.6 if CUDA support is required.
|Premiere Pro version|
Premiere Pro version 13.1.x or earlier.
Get mac address for ip address. Starting with Premiere Pro 14.0, CUDA is no longer supported. If you have an Apple supplied NVIDIA GPU, you can use the Metal Renderer. For more information, see Changes to GPU and DV/HDV support in Premiere Pro on macOS.

Open the downloaded PKG file to begin installation.
Restart your machine when installation is complete, even if the setup does not prompt you to do so.
After the display driver is updated, use download the qualified CUDA installer DMG from this location.
Open the downloaded DMG and double click the CUDADriver.pkg file to begin installation.
When installation completes, restart your machine even if the setup does not prompt you to do so.
