NVIDIA Drops All Quadro Support for Lenovo P70/P50 Graphics Cards

2017-03-29, 6:18 AM

So according to the NVidia 378 Release Notes the 375 Professional drivers will be the last ones to support all the Quadro cards that exist in the P50/P70 series (1000M thru the 5000M)

 

Does @Amy_Lenovo or any other moderators have any comment about this turn of events? What kind of guarantees will we get for future certifications against new software versions that are coming out?

 

Are we out of luck, does Lenovo have any pull with NVidia on this? Do we as professional have any recourse? Official / unofficial MXM upgrades? Tradeup to a P71? (Probably a CDinH, but I have to ask :smileyfrustrated: )

 

Thanks.

The P70/P50 have Maxwell chips (Mx000M), not Fermi chips (x000M). The Fermi chips they're discontinuing shipped with the W520.

What a relief!

Well, although the new generation came out,

discontinuing support for the graphic card which is still in market somewhere sounds bit strange, after all..
