For drivers, always download these from the GPU manufacturer's web site. Don't let Windows update the drivers, because Microsoft removes key parts from the drivers that are needed to do CAL, CUDA and OpenCL calculations. Windows 10 is herein troubling because they update the whole OS every year, overwriting your preferences, drivers and settings. Make sure to reinstall your videocard drivers after this yearly update.<br>

In this FAQ I'll try to detail what minimum requirements are necessary to use GPUs for calculations at the various projects. Each project has its own page, with minimum/maximum requirements and possibly against which plan class. Depends on if I can get all that information from the project developers.

For drivers, always download these from the GPU manufacturer's web site. Don't let Windows update the drivers, because Microsoft removes key parts from the drivers that are needed to do CAL, CUDA and OpenCL calculations. Windows 10 is herein troubling because they update the whole OS every year, overwriting your preferences, drivers and settings. Make sure to reinstall your videocard drivers after this yearly update.
