    CUDA not available when trying to render with GPU

    Jess P Level 1

      I have a Samsung Series 7 Chronos 17" laptop running Windows 7. It has a Nvidia Optimus 650m graphics card. All of my drivers and software are up to date.

       

      I am trying to get CUDA working in After Effects CC so I can use GPU rendering, but when I try to, After Effects does not see it, so I can't use the GPU rendering.   According to information from Nvidia, I should be able to use CUDA.

       

      In a brief Google search I saw one post by a guy when putting his laptop (same as mine) through the paces couldn't use CUDA. It was disabled or unavailable or something, but I have not found a solution. Anyone have an idea what could be happening?  Is this device really not supported?

       

      Here's the info from AE.
