I’m recently facing some issues with CUDA.
I haven’t used Blender for a few months and when few days ago I’ve loaded some of my old scenes suddenly I got “out of memory” messages from CUDA (cuMemAlloc or cuLaunchKernel)
I have tried to load and render (both viewport and F12) several scenes and they randomly generates below messages even when scene is not very heavy…
All my scenes were working fine few months ago, I have never seen such messages before.
I can only suspect that during last months CUDA and/or OS X Nvidia drivers were updated and one/both of them is/are causing these problems.
I have MSI GTX 580 3GB and that card was working great with OS X for 1.5 years… until now.
I have verified Blender versions from 2.71 to 2.73a all throws “out of memory”. 2.70 crashes at startup so I couldn’t verify this version. All my scenes are set to Support/GPU mode.
I have updated to the latest CUDA but still have these problems.
