I give up

I bought a new NVidia GTX 660 to get past this. Works great now, but I suppose some people are getting left behind in the upgrade from 2.66 to 2.67 if 2.67 no longer supports CUDA compute capabilities below 2.0.

Re: Requires compute capability 2.0. I only have 1.3...

So maybe if I downgrade to 2.66 I will be able to use CUDA? Do you know what CUDA compute capability level your video hardware supports?

Re: CUDA 2.0 required?

have you tried rendering by commandline? I have not, and I was about to try that right now, but this morning when I load and try to render the project in the GUI I have a system console that is reporting the messages, and I no longer see the messages (even briefly) on the main GUI window. So for wh...

In that case you need to specify. As you have discovered, there is a difference between "What does Blender support?" and "What does $custom_build_of_Blender support?" Or even, "Will Blender support $card in the future?" You have already discovered the answer to question 1. I'm not entirely sure I h...

Re: CUDA 2.0 required?

I thought the error that Blender spit out should have clarified that. You'd think so, but the fact that the error is barely visible combined with conflicting evidence I see at http://graphicall.org/444 (references to 'in system console is says " Cuda device supported only with compute compatibility...

Re: CUDA 2.0 required?

That says what versions of CUDA compute capability are associated with which hardware, but not what Blender supports. I see mixed information about what version of CUDA compute capability Blender can work with.

Re: CUDA 2.0 required?

Forgot to mention I am using 64-bit Windows 7 and installed Blender 2.67 this morning (new).

CUDA 2.0 required?

I can't read the error message I'm seeing very well because it only appears for a fraction of a second each time I click Render (where can I see the full message more easily?) but when I try to use CUDA with Device = GPU Compute and Feature Set = Experimental, I get no output and the followign messa...
