R265.90 supports the latest version of CUDA: CUDA 3.2.1 but this is not the case for OpenCL: only OpenCL 1.0 is exposed:

    Where is WinXP support? I don’t see it listed in that string…

    DiskID1 = “NVIDIA Windows Vista / 7 / 8 (64 bit) Driver Library Installation Disk 1″

  2. WacKEDmaN

    XP has its own installer

    the above is from the Vista/Win7 x64 drivers

  3. Squall Leonhart

    meh, this is just another Release 260 branch pos with broken CL Julia.

  4. JeGX Post Author

    yep I don’t understand why they don’t manage to put a fixed version of OpenCL clBuildProgram on their driver…

  5. JEskandari

    Is it only Julia test that broken?
    For me it seems all the OpenCL tests are broken .

  6. JeGX Post Author

    @JEskandari: yep you’re right, I haven’t tested the other OpenCL demos but they are all broken. Crappy driver!

    Someone else can confirm that regression?

  7. WacKEDmaN

    @JeGX…yup..all the demos are crashing for me..i didnt test until now :/

    back to the 263.06 dev driver for me i think

  8. WacKEDmaN

    @labeled: you should read before you post!

    the first sentance says its intended for quadro

    Hello, everyone. I have a question and i hope someone can answer, I have a dell m90 with an nvidia quadro fx2500m and it seems that does not support opengl 3 or 4, does anyone has a way to fix this, I already tried updating the driver from dell, but its the same.

    Thank yuo
