NVS 5400M Cuda 9.2?


I have a thinkpad T530 laptop with NVS 5400M. I am using Ubuntu 20.04. I am new to this, so sorry if I have a wrong understanding. But am I able to install CUDA 9.2 toolkit? The repo I am looking to install require CUDA 9.2+. According to installation instruction/documentation, CUDA is supported on my GPU, but it’s not clarified what level of CUDA toolkit is supported?

I would highly appreciate if someone can help clarify this. I tried to install 9.2 toolkit, but ended up getting the error. I can try again and provide the exact error detail if that helps!

I believe I currently have a proprietary and tested R390 driver installed on Ubuntu.
Thanks a lot!

nvs 5400m is fermi device. The last CUDA version that supported those devices is CUDA 8.0. You won’t be able to use CUDA 9.2 with it.

Thanks a lot, Robert!!!

so does that mean all fermi devices are not 9.2 compatible? How about GT 730. thanks

correct. The last CUDA version that works with a fermi devcie (any fermi GPU) is CUDA 8.0

Some NVIDIA GPUs (by brand name) may come in different variants. The GT 730 is one of those:

A Kepler GT 730 is still usable with CUDA versions up through 10.2, at least.

A Fermi GT 730 is only useable with CUDA 8.0 or prior.

Is there any resource to look up which card supports which cuda version? Thanks!

Note that as manually maintained lists both usually offer only 99% coverage at any given time.
