Sitting in Microsofts to do pile.
Here with 340xx drivers can not the same stable overclock ...
Vcore 1:21 but is not remained more stable as before. = /
nvenc uses the 600s+ hardware h264 encoder?
Yes, it only for Kepler+
so what about non kepler cards users?
they would be stuck with opencl then?
or use older drivers that support cuda?
337.88 whql still supports cuda its from 340.xx they discontinued
But Fermi user is still supported, right?
As I remember, there are still many Fermi used as a brand new cards...
so you just removed nvcuvenc.dll or you mean it wont work @ all anymore ?
Use quadro drivers, those probably still support cuda.
So none 600s+ users are ****ed then when it comes to CUDA support?
No all 500 and before them fkedup only if they / we use beta driver if we all use 337.88 whql
600+ doesn't get CUDA encoding either. Only NVENC.
even then your still stuck with old drivers until companys update there programs to use the new encoder.
A lot are at least.
Open Broadcaster and XSplit Gamecaster do now with their latest versions.
Yes but 600s+ will be able to use NVENC, 500s and below won't be able to use CUDA or NVENC. It just looks like another attempt by NVIDIA to force people to upgrade.
I have a support ticket with nvidia about missing NVCUVENC.
1) Its a mistake to think, that software companies will rewrite their software. They will not. Its fundamental engine integration method. For example Nero, cyberlink, adobe (premiere), mediacoder, they will add support for NVENC in next versions, not to current versions. Maybe. Current software and users are screwd. Just like that.
2) In all positive case, rewriting software will be positive only for 600+ owners. No support for 9800-500s cards. Its in direct collision with nvidia company claim for long support of their products.
3) Even nvidia support doesnt understand the decision of sudden NVCUVENC removal, and impact on existing software and customers. I am still waiting to official response.
If they wanted to drop support for all that, they at least could have waited until R 343 drivers which drop support for pre-DX 11 cards.
Primairly I dont understand why REMOVE nvcuvenc. Leave it there and stop development, mark it as non-perspective, whatever. With nvcuvenc removed, its basically like removing all non-gaming benefit for me, with no reason. And thats not why I pay more money for nvidia and not amd, because raw power is very similar in these days.
I think we'll get the WHQL driver in the upcoming Tuesday.
and it be the same 340.52, which is nice driver. but if it is, i pretty sure they prepared another beta driver while waiting for endless WHQL.
