Hello,
Do someone know what is the minimal driver version that will accept SETI@home
My system: Linux x64
CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce 8400M G (driver version 304.13, CUDA version 5.0, compute capability 1.1, 127MB, 107MB available, 19 GFLOPS peak)
OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce 8400M G (driver version 304.135, device version OpenCL 1.0 CUDA, 127MB, 107MB available, 19 GFLOPS peak)
Processor: 2 GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5450 @ 1.66GHz [Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 13]
Processor features: fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe syscall nx lm constant_tsc arch_perfmon pebs bts rep_good nopl aperfm$
OS: Linux: 4.10.0-28-generic

Even if it's still supported at this project, it's more of a question if it's useful to use such an old GPU for Seti. Set against the electricity it uses, I wouldn't do it. More modern GPUs, even those built into Intel CPUs, run rings around a GF 8400.
