GTX 1050 ti (PCI ID: 10de:1c82) unsupported by 430.34

Upgraded from GT430 (works fine) to GTX 1050 ti on Fedora 29 x86_64 and can’t find a driver that supports the card. Using 430.26 or 418.74, the ones suggested by the nvidia driver downloader for this card, I get:

NVRM: The NVIDIA GPU 0000:01:00.0 (PCI ID: 10de:1c82)
NVRM: installed in this system is not supported by the
NVRM: NVIDIA 430.34 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

In Appendix A the ID looks correct for this card and it should be supported?
nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (43 KB)

The 340.107 driver does work with the GTX1050ti but the card is unrecognised.
Same driver works with the GT430 and does identify the card: NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU GeForce GT 430 (GF108)

I think your “GTX 1050 Ti” is counterfeit. The error you got from the 430.26 release is a pretty telltale sign, and it looks like someone doctored a GeForce GTX 550 Ti or similar to make it look like a 1050. Whoever did it didn’t bother to change the PCI ID of the audio function:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050 Ti] [10de:1c82] (rev a1)
01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: NVIDIA Corporation <b>GF116</b> High Definition Audio Controller [10de:0bee] (rev a1)

So this looks like a legacy Fermi card disguised as a newer Pascal one.

I would recommend returning the card if possible and finding a genuine GTX 1050 Ti somewhere else.

Yes… “If it looks too good to be true …”

I think I have same problem - seems like fake card. Old driver works, but not driver for GTX 1050 TI. Bought it on Jan 2019 on ebay from seller “hopesit”.

It’s a pcie 2.0 device, so most likely fake. You can use
sudo lspci -d 10de:*
to have a look at the audio controller, too.
