CUDA need to be updated?
on Jul 7, 2018 at 11:33:36 am

Does anyone know if CUDA gets updated like GPU drivers do? It's been a year since I got this PC and installed CUDA, but it hasn't occurred to me that maybe there are new CUDA drivers that need to be installed. Nvidia's website doesn't really say anything about it. Anybody?

Everything you need is included in the normal GPU drivers. There is a separate CUDA SDK but it is for development use only.

OK, and that SDK also contains the same CUDA driver that I already have installed, even though the version number is higher? One other thing, if my PC is running with no problem then should I not bother updating the GPU driver, as I read somewhere?

Thanks for responding, as usual, Tero!

Just update your GPU drivers once in a while and you should be good to go. Note that there might be some rare problems with driversonce in a while so keep an installer handy for an older driver version.

OK. I usually will only install recommended rather than beta drivers anyway. Thanks again!
