RTX 30xx Render Cycles R6

Hi I Just got my new RTX 3080 and I see that it will not work with Rhino Cycles in Rhino6. I get a black screen when trading to render. I need to all be able to use a RTX30xx in R6 if possible, most plugins like MatrixGold don’t yet use R7. Any chance to make the RTX 30xx work on R6? Anyone buying a new pc with a nvida RTX 30xx will not be able to use it in R6. Thanks for the help.

What Rhino 6 version are you using? (First line from the output from the Rhino command _SystemInfo).

I haven’t checked but I strongly suspect Nvidia has a more recent driver for the card than last september.

What is better for Rhino Driver Game-Ready or Driver Studio???

Hi - from what I hear, both should be fine.
Just make sure to only install the driver and not the “experience” suite or something like that.
