    Hello,

    is hardware encoding supported with the NVIDIA GeForce MX 330 (2 GB) ? I'm testing the following Thinkpad:

    https://ok1.de/ThinkPad/ThinkPad-T14-14/ThinkPad-T14-20S1S07800::2034.html

    I'm using the current Lenovo driver(s). In CloneBD I can select:

    - decoding Software / Intel or Cuda
    - encoding Software or Intel (Cuda is grayed out) :-(
    - FurMark uses the Nvidia automatically

    Can / should I install other Nvidia Drivers? Which one? I can check tomorrow.

    Regards

    CUDA support for H.265 (UHD) is only available starting with GTX 9xx, better GTX 1xxx or GTX 2xxx. Not sure what is needed as minimum for H.264 (BD). I worked for me with a GTX 7xx. I don't think it will work with your MX 330 at all.

    Every result i see on google for that model indicates the MX330 is a new device released in february THIS YEAR. So while it SHOULD work, everything depends on the compute capability the tools report. However looking on https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus the MX330 isn't listed. So either it won't work with that card, or the page hasn't been updated.

    Please read: https://forum.redfox.bz/threads/f-a-q-clonebd-1-x-x-x-hw-acc-doesnt-work-what-to-do.71266/ or https://forum.redfox.bz/threads/compute-capability-for-clonebd.71439/ and follow the nvidia instructions

    Euh yeah it is. Literally on the first line, 2nd column under "Technologien" > "NVIDIA CUDA - Technologie". But then it isn't listed under "Technische Daten", while OpenGL and OpenCL are, so it's kinda hard to know which section is correct.

    I have to correct myself. It's listed under 6.1 with Pascal GPU GP108 and should be equivalent to the GTX 1xxx

    CUDA is not relevant - nvenc/nvdec is.

    Thaks for the input.

    Now I have a code 43 in devicemanager after updating the system. :-(

    Anyone of the pros knows a solution?

    The CloneBD GUI stats Cuda ?!?

    Is the MX 330 supportet ? Regards

    Yes, because that's the term most people know (and also - CloneBD uses CUDA as well for image preprocessing).
    Apparently not, sorry.

    Ok the code 43 -> not working GPU is/was caused by installing the Windows sandbox.
