For those users who have a NVIDIA graphic card you may want to think twice before upgrading to Windows 8, it seems CUDA is not support in the Consumers Preview release of the operating system and may or may not function in the final release of the new operating system. :eek:

Perhaps you need the Nvidia drivers for Windows 8 for it to work?

My NVIDIA driver is the latest one released which is 295.73, however I will check into the OpenGL extension.

I personally didn’t care at all about Windows 8 going by the preview test anyways so I will not be upgrading from Windows 7.

Thanks for the info and link.

You must be talking about the Home version :iagree: :Z because I have no restrictions at all in Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate.

Windows 7 Ultimate is the best because of the XP compatibility mode that comes with it.

Yeah!! that was the same for me so I just got a whole new rig when I went to Vista. :smiley:


#16

I’m still curious though.

What was it you didn’t like about Windows 8 SJ?

I’ve seen stuff in magazines saying that the desktop interface is pretty close to Windows 7.

I don’t care for the METRO for one thing and another was the no support for CUDA amoung a few other issues, I know it’s just a preview release so there’ll be changes in the works so may try it out again though if changes are made(Like getting rid of METRO for desktop PC’s.
