MATLAB requires that an NVIDIA-supplied graphics driver be installed on your Mac in order to take full advantage of an NVIDIA GPU. NVIDIA has not released an Apple-approved graphics driver for macOS Mojave. For more information, please see this official statement from NVIDIA on NVIDIA's developer forums.
The impact on MATLAB is as follows:
You can use MATLAB with an NVIDIA GPU on macOS Mojave and newer, however, graphics performance is degraded when compared to running MATLAB on previous releases of macOS.
NVIDIA-specific functionality such as CUDA is not available which means GPU Arrays, provided by Parallel Computing Toolbox and used by many products, will not work.
The following products have features that make use of CUDA functionality and these features will be impacted by the lack of an NVIDIA-supplied graphics driver:
- Parallel Computing Toolbox
- GPU Coder
- Image Processing Toolbox
- Deep Learning Toolbox
- Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox
- Computer Vision System Toolbox
- Signal Processing Toolbox
- Communications Toolbox
- Phased Array System Toolbox
- Text Analytics Toolbox
- Reinforcement Learning Toolbox
