I have an MSI gaming laptop that has dual/SLI GeForce GTX 980M’s (CUDA with 5.2) which is listed as a supported device (Cuda + higher than version 3.0). I am running Windows 10 with the latest NVidia drivers installed. When trying to use CUDA in Blender, I get “no compatible gpus found for path tracing.” Anyone know how to get GPU cycles rendering on a machine that is supported?
After googling I found where someone said they used the NVidia Control Panel and set Blender to use a specfic GPU since like me they had 2 cards. But two problems: 1) I can see that Blender supports multiple GPU,s and 2) The worst problem is even if I download the NVidia Control Panel from MS app store, it appears to no longer run under Windows 10.
Anyone know how to get it to work? Again: My GPU is supported. My drivers are up to date as of today, prior to that I had a year old version which produced the same issue. Blender version is 2.82A. Blender works fine, just will not let me select GPU under CUDA, OptiX, or OpenCL.
