I have Visual Studio 2010. In the CUDA_Installation_Guide_Windows.pdf, for supported Compilers, it says Visual Studio 2010 “DEPRECATED”.
1. What does “DEPRECATED” mean?
Since I am only trying to learn how to use CUDA, I don’t want to buy another compiler if I don’t have to. I also don’t want to make any changes to my system since everything runs so well (for now).
2. Can I still use Visual Studio 2010?
I still have my original GeForce GTX 460 SE and Quadro NVS 450 video cards. In cuda_7.5.18_windows.exe’s ListDevices.txt file it lists the GeForce GTX 460 SE but not the Quadro NVS 450. I am currently using v314.22 drivers. Using v341.44 drivers caused an intermittent but regular systemwide 1 second pause or stutter, about once every hour. I would rather put off upgrading to GTX 960’s since I am only trying to learn how to use CUDA.
3. Will cuda_7.5.18_windows work with the GTX 460 SE, since that’s all I need?
4. What version nVidia drivers come with cuda_7.5.18_windows.exe?
Any advice will be helpful.
