455.45.01 & RTX 3060Ti on Ubuntu 20.04 - driver bug?

Hi, i am having trouble to get a 3060 ti card to run under ubuntu.
I get the following error in syslog;

Dec 14 16:10:01 testbox02 kernel: [ 5740.155291] NVRM: The NVIDIA GPU 0000:0b:00.0 (PCI ID: 10de:2486)

Dec 14 16:10:01 testbox02 kernel: [ 5740.155291] NVRM: specific graphics driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

The driver page suggests that the 3060ti should be supported, but in the “NVIDIA_Changelog” file & the “supportedchips.html” in the driver package there is no mention of the 3060ti. Also a grep of 3060 in the supported-gpus.json implies that the support actually seems to be missing.

Is there a newer driver package planned for release soon that could fix this issue/include the support?

Best Regards

Unfortunately, Nvidia never anounces driver releases or date in advance, so you can only sit and wait.

Funny, while I was posting:


So you’ll have to use the beta driver

[ 59.470697] NVRM: The NVIDIA GPU 0000:0b:00.0 (PCI ID: 10de:2486)
NVRM: installed in this system is not supported by the
NVRM: NVIDIA 460.27.04 driver release.
NVRM: Please see ‘Appendix A - Supported NVIDIA GPU Products’
NVRM: in this release’s README, available on the operating system
NVRM: specific graphics driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

But this time the pci id has made it to the json file at least, so i guess one step ahead?
Any suggestions anyone?

Can you please run nvidia-bug-report.sh and attach the resulting nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file?

Sucess!
After a clean reinstall with the beta driver it seems to be working! Thanks for the new driver nvidia! :)
