I would like to install CUDA 9.1 to enable running cuDNN programs on my (4 years old) x64 Windows 7 laptop with GeForce GT 525M GPU. Current driver is NVIDIA 391.35. I have conflicting information about whether or not that’s possible, could you help?
(1) cuDNN lists the following architectures as supported: “cuDNN is supported on Windows, Linux and MacOS systems with Volta, Pascal, Kepler, Maxwell, Tegra K1, Tegra X1 and Tegra X2 GPUs.” which is missing the Fermi architecture for GT 525M - really not supported?
(2) When I downloaded cuda_9.1.85_windows.exe and started to install it, it passed the first step of “checking the system” (or so), so I think that means that I could go ahead with the CUDA 9.1 installation which would also switch to a different video driver, correct? Is this recommended or should I better not try that with my old GPU?
