"This driver does not support older generation GPUs with SM1.x. Please download the equivalent CUDA 6.5.36 which supports SM1.x"
They didn't include a link there, but here's the download page for CUDA 6.5.36, which has this note on card support:
"This driver does not support GeForce GTX980 and GTX970. Please download the equivalent CUDA 6.5.37 which supports GeForce GTX980 and GTX970"
I don't have a mac running Yosemite/Nvidia cards to test these but curious if the CUDA update supports the 343.02.01f01 graphics driver for OS X 10.10.1 without edits to CUDA files mentioned in the past. (As of noon Wednesday, no later graphics driver D/L page at their site. Unless there's a later update via their prefs panel.)
FYI: From a reader (Thanks Felix) using OS X Yosemite I assume (that had the "Cuda Update Required" issue when using the latest nvidia graphics drivers):
"Just to let you know that the CUDA saga seems finally resolved. Mac Pro with GTX 980, latest Nvidia Web Drivers and CUDA version 6.5.37 that seems specifically designed for modern cards...
All working fine - Adobe suite and CUDA benchmarks all working.
And no CUDA needs to be updated in (Nvidia) system prefs.
And a report from a 2008 Mac Pro/GT120 card user (OS X 10.10.1):
Just an update. I'm using the Nvidia Cuda update 6.5.36 and (older) GPU Driver v10.1.43 (343.01.02f03). This is with my 2008 MacPro 3.1. This is what I was given with the update from the Nvidia Cuda preference app. (From notes above on .37, using .36 CUDA version since GT120 is older card.)
So far, so good....
(he later wrote)
I had more time today to mess around with Nvidia updates.
I installed the new (from Dec 22nd) WebDriver 10.1.43 (343.02.01f01) and it is working inside my 2008 Mac Pro 3.1 along with the Cuda update 6.5.36.
I haven't seen any earth shattering (new) Open GL speed from the updates.
Cinebench R15 has me at 13.51 FPS and a 600 CPU Score. So, no speed demon here, but at least I have lost the dreaded "CUDA Update Required" message I have been getting for a long time.
