I've started to mess around with 3D rendering on a MacBook Pro (model below). I've seen that it's possible to apply CUDA driver even for the GeForce GT750M in this post: How to Enable Premiere Mercury Playback GPU Acceleration CUDA on iMac.
When I enable the CUDA driver by changing the textfiles, as described, my Laptop freezes. So first of all I wonder if something is wrong with the GPU, or if I simply cannot use the driver, since it has not been developed for the 750M card. Does anyone know?
If the card is not defective, I still have the issue, that the rendering time for 3D content drives my crazy. Watching a preview with even just every 5th frame takes at least 3 seconds to render the frame in 1/4 resolution with 3D enabled. Do I have achance to extend the graphics power by adding a GPU via Thunderbolt2? Any suggestions are welcome. It drives me crazy so far ... I'm using After Effects CS6 188.8.131.52.

Thank you guys!
It looks like you have a MacBook Pro Retina. First question, what version of AE down to the last decimal point? Make sure you are up to date. Second OS version down to the last decimal point. Both should be current.
Second question, what version of the NVIDIA driver do you have installed?
Second, with Yosemetie and CC or CC2014 don't modify the text file but go to AE Preferences>Preivew select GPU info and check the box that says unsupported GPU then enable GPU processing.
RayTraced rendering should then work as well as it's going to work.
PS: Yosemite is 10.10.1 (14B25)
I've installed CUDA 6.5.33
