I’ve never even heard of the 8200M. And neither has wikipedia. Is it a cutdown 9400M? Something original?
Conceivably, NVIDIA cut chunks of it out to save transistors that ended up disabling CUDA/PhysX. I don’t think NVIDIA would lie about such a thing. But it would be the first DX10 card that i’ve seen that doesn’t support it.
I don’t know, you can try installing the latest CUDA driver (using the INF hack if you need to) and then seeing if the SDK samples work.
That’s so bizarre. Why would NVIDIA go out of its way to claim the 8200 GT does not support CUDA, when it does?
There is a strange game NVIDIA is playing right now with Intel, which has so far banned NVIDIA from making chipsets that work with its i7 CPUs. Mostly because Intel is afraid of CUDA, and afraid of CUDA integrated into the motherboard. (Jeez… don’t you sometimes wish our antimonopoly laws would be good for something?)
