Version 2.78 recognizes the GPU. I understand that 2.78 and 2.8 have different requirements. Yet I would like to rule out other problems.
Is there any action I can take to correct this situation? Is there any steps I can take to investigate this situation. In the past I have rarely had to consider a situation like this with the GPU.
