Having tried for weeks to get 2.8 to render on a Nvidia 1050 Ti, I'm stumped. I have used many different versions of Nvidia driver, several builds of Blender 2.8. I don't see where anyone else has got this card to be recognized either. It is supported in the documantation, & the card works great on other software. But every time in 2.8 I get "No CUDA compatible card recognized. Is this card supported really? - It is recognized & works on Blender 7.9.
Yes, that's what I get - no card shows in preferences. But, on exactly the same machine, The 1050 shows for Blender 2.79, & renders very well. I tried the latest drivers, & several others, but it does not show.
Windows 7 (Home) 64 bit. All Windows updates. Device manager shows everything working.
