NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M Two SDKs to install - CUDA Toolkit/SDK and cuDNN

I am interested in speeding up the ‘number crunching’ ability of my nearly 10 year old laptop.

The language I am learning is Python, and wish to use the GPU version of Tensorflow.

My laptop has a CPU 2630QM and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M.

My questions are similar to the suggested questions, but NOT for my NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M.

There are two SDKs that I need to install. My questions are:

  • Is there a CUDA sdk specific/appropriate for my GT 540M
  • Which is the appropriate cuDNN that I need for a GT540M. There are so many cuDNN versions I don’t know what is the appropriate version to install.
  • Will any version of the cuDNN especially for older machines work with the CUDA sdk?
  • What are the environmental paths needed to set up the CUDA sdk and the cuDNN.

Thank you
