Activity Forums VEGAS Pro Nvidia Card Not Showing Up In Vegas Preferences

  • Nvidia Card Not Showing Up In Vegas Preferences

    Posted by Joshua Jackson on March 17, 2016 at 1:57 am

    I read thread after thread about people not being able to see their Nvidia graphics card in Vegas’ preferences.
    I was having the exact same issue, with my 750ti.
    I was able to fix the issue, but it wasn’t because I saw the answer in any of those threads (or I didn’t realize it).

    I have Windows 10 and I got drivers through Windows Update.
    Those drivers contained the control panel, desktop right-click menu entry, etc…
    It seemed like everything was right.
    I went to Nvidia’s website, downloaded/installed their latest drivers, and rebooted.
    The next time I fired up Vegas, I had GPU acceleration enabled!!!
    Apparently, the issue was the drivers that Microsoft was pushing down.
    I don’t know if they were just too old or if the OpenCL stuff was removed.
    Regardless, these drivers made it work…
    Version 364.51 – WHQL
    Release Date Tue Mar 08, 2016
    Operating System Windows 10 64-bit
    Language English (US)
    File Size 324.91 MB

    Obviously, I’m not looking for assistance.
    Hopefully, this answer will help someone else.

    Thanks for sharing that and there is a good lesson to be learned. I would never use a driver from Windows Update. Always use either a driver from the card manufacturer (ASUS, Gigabyte. MSI, EVGA, etc.) or from the NVDIA or AMD site.
