got a rtx 2080ti 2 days ago, previous was using two gtx 1080, and run my tensorflow program with no problems, after replaced with rtx 2080ti, the system cannot find driver for this device, and the lshw shows me the following

i tried manually install some drivers from PPA, but nothing happens.

Is that my computer problem or it is indeed havent been supported yet.

my system version is 18.04

thank you

  • Which PPA have you tried? Are you trying to use the nvidia proprietary drivers or the open source nouveau driver? – Kristopher Ives Oct 1 '18 at 0:50
  • Tried ppa:graphics-drivers/pap with the 390 and 384 driver not nouveau I also noticed when I tried to reinstall the system nouveau says unknow chipset – stepstone Oct 1 '18 at 1:19

    This article says that driver version 410 is needed for Turing cards. It also tells how to install a CUDA package that comes with that driver. – Chai T. Rex Oct 1 '18 at 1:23
  • Thank you man. U saved my day thought ppa is synchronized with official drivers. Downloaded driver from Nvidia websit and with anaconda everything is perfect right now – stepstone Oct 1 '18 at 2:01

i just had the exact same problem, and right now i am running a tensor flow model to test it and it seems fine

all i needed to do is to install the driver from Nvidia website and run it with sudo.

here you go the link https://www.geforce.com/drivers

i haven't done any benchmarking for the performance yet but everything seems fine

and a very bad downside for this approach is that everytime you will have a kernel update you will have to reinstall the driver!
