Does this update also fix the problems with nvidia gt650m/750m GPUs in 2013/2014 MacBook Pros (which are supported by High Sierra)?

Basically in High Sierra these GPUs run so slowly for most OpenGL/opencl/webgl/ and metal2 functions.

Many people have downgraded to Sierra to fix the issues, everything is then back to normal.
