Quadro 600

I was thinking of re-purposing some old Quadro 600 machines with Ubuntu 18.04.

Quadro 600 is listed as legacy CUDA GPU. https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-legacy-gpus

  1. What is the maximum CUDA version that a Quadro 600 can use? Does CUDA 10 provide backwards compatibility for legacy GPUs?

  2. What is the maximum NVIDIA driver that Quadro 600 can use? Do newer drivers that interface with CUDA 10 provide backwards compatibility for legacy GPUs?

Thanks. Tell me everything that you know about Quadro 600 ?

  1. CUDA 8.0, no you can’t use CUDA 10
  2. I believe it should be an R390 driver. No, newer drivers than that don’t support Fermi devices.

According to Nvidia CUDA Linux Container Image Sources CUDA 10.0.0 should work with a 384+ driver, no?

CUDA 10.0 does not support Fermi GPUs like Quadro 600. This thread is about Quadro 600.

And CUDA 10.0 nominally requires a 410.xx or newer driver, unless you are using CUDA compatibility libraries.
