Cuda driver

Hi,

I have a question about the drivers required by Cuda. Do I need to install the driver from http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_get.html or can I use the normal drivers installed from http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us. I’m not exactly sure what’s the diference betwen the two.

Thanks

The “normal” drivers (the non-beta versions) support CUDA 1.1.

The drivers listed at http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_get.html for CUDA 2.0 beta are special CUDA beta drivers: you need the exact version there. For CUDA 1.1, that page lists the earliest driver version to support CUDA 1.1.

One exception, the new beta 177.79 and 177.89 also seem to support CUDA 2.0b2, though it doesn’t seem to be officially documented anywhere.

I see…
Thanks for the quick response
