I'm running the latest version of Blender 2.79 and I'm trying to render in cycles with a RTX 2060. I'm unable to render anything. At first I received the Error "CUDA binary kernel for this graphics card compute capability (7.5) not found."

I followed the steps in this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZjIQGLieB4 Basically downloading a filter and kernel file and moving it into C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79\scripts\addons\cycles\lib

After doing that I no longer received the first error, now I'm receiving this error "CUDA error: Not found in cuModuleGetGlobal(&cumem &cubytes, cuModule, bind_name.c_str()), line 729"

Any recommendations or fixes anyone can suggest? Thanks in advance!


You'll need to use the Blender 2.8 beta for rendering with a 20-series card. They updated some technical CUDA stuff that allows newer generation GPUs to be compatible, but 2.79 naturally hasn't received those updates.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

You can also use the 2.79 version from the latest builds. It works with the 20 series as well.
