Help in running flux on NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 GPU

I have a NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 GPU. I tried to run Flux on it using both julia 1.8 and 1.9.

Both way I am getting:

Please help, how to solve it.

I think because this is a very old card it doesn’t have a CUDA compute capability high enough to run any of the modern CUDA needed by Flux. If you have the notebook version, this has a CUDA Compute Capability of 2.1 whereas CUDA.jl (which Flux will use under the hood) requires a minimum of 3.5 to run.

As getting a newer GPU may not be an option, you can always look into Google colab as I know you can run Julia and use a GPU which should be modern enough.

Thank you for your response.

Is there anyway to lower the cuda version and use it?

no. that said with the speed of a gt710, you’ll have better luck using a CPU anyway. the 710 only has 2gb of ddr3 ram. so pretty much nothing would even fit on it.
