Quadro K2000M support

Asked by Sam

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 on a HP EliteBook 8570w with an Nvidia Quadro K2000M. I am running Matlab 2015a and require CUDA version 6.5 (or higher) to be able to use Matlab's GPU computing features.

Currently I have driver version 331 installed and this provides me with CUDA 6.0. I would like to update to version 346 to upgrade the available CUDA version. Unfortunately, driver version 346 s not listed through the "additional drivers" window. (Version 331 is the latest version I can select)

Does this mean that I will have to wait until driver version 346 becomes available for the K2000M until I can make use of CUDA 6.5?

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said :

As a intermediate solution you could try using a higher version of the NVidia driver from a PPA.
E.g. https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa contains versions up to nvidia-graphics-drivers-352 for trusty.

Remarks: No knowledge whether this will enable CUDA 6.5
Standard disclaimer for PPAs (use at your own risk, no support in the official Ubuntu channels, etc.) apply.

Can you help with this problem?
