Geforce GT650M

Hi there,

A little question; I’m about to buy a new laptop and most laptops use the Geforce GT650M graphics card.

Is this card compatible with the GPU rendering of Cycles, which uses CUDA?

On the website of Nvidia I don’t find it under the features.

Has anyone experience with that card?

Thanks!

On the Nvidia website it lists CUDA as one of the features that that card has. Also there are 4 entries for it on the cycles benchmark spreadsheet. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0As2oZAgjSqDCdElkM3l6VTdRQjhTRWhpVS1hZmV3OGc#gid=0

The times are around 3:50 to render. If money isn’t too much of a problem I would recommend getting a laptop with a 680M. That shaves 2 minutes off the benchmark render time.
