CUDA is a proprietary NVIDIA technology. AMD FirePro GPUs cannot use CUDA and do not require or benefit from CUDA drivers.

Beyond what Walter said: Installing CUDA software on a system without CUDA hardware can cause problems.

Thanks Walter, I've arrived at that realisation fairly quickly now looking at you other discussions. So as I'm using AE CS6, ray traced 3D will not work on my new machine, but if i get a CC sub I can utilise the C4D inclusion? Crafty Adobe, very clever.

Ray-traced 3D is accelerated by an NVIDIA GPU, but it does not require one. When no suitable CUDA GPU is available, the ray tracing renderer falls back to CPU rendering. You can still use it just fine.
