Hello, everyone. I am running Blender 2.81a as of today, January 12, 2020, and it doesn’t seem to be using my graphics card to render in Cycles. My computer specs are: AMD Ryzen 2950 Threadripper cpu, 64Gbs RAM, ASRock X399 Phantom 6 motherboard, and an EVGA Nvidia Geforce RTS 2080 ti graphics card.
The operating system is Linux, Elementary OS (based on Ubuntu).
When I go to Blender’s preferences, in the Cycles Render Devices, under both the CUDA and the OptiX tabs it says ‘No compatible GPUs found for path tracing. Cycles will render on the CPU’
The drive I have from Nvidia is 440.44, as far as I can tell, the latest one. The results from my various searches on the internet show many people have this issue, but the posts are several years old.
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
