The Programming guide in section 3.6 states that using nvidia-smi to set compute-prohibited mode and compute-exclusive mode should only work with Tesla cards - but it seems to work just fine with GeForce cards too. Has anyone ever encountered any problems? Is this supported?
It has worked fine on Linux with every card I have tried since about CUDA 2.1. On Windows, it requires the tcc driver, which only works with tesla cards.
