[quote="Syed"] It seems nvidia is trying to enforce all the restriction to sell their license manager. We spent 6K for the K2 grid and want to use every penny and feature out of it. [/quote] The K2 is unaffected by the release of GRID 2.0 which is only required for GRID on Maxwell generation Tesla boards and future hardware releases. K2 has all the features and functionality that were supported prior to GRID 2.0. Nothing has been changed, removed or downgraded. [quote="Syed"] NVidia should understand and provide necessary resources for existing hardwares they sold to their customers, and separate driver for grid 2.0 if necessary. [/quote] K2 does have separately provided and maintained drivers. The GRID 2.0 driver and software stack is completely separate and is even downloaded from a different location to avoid confusion. As MC has directed you to the other thread, you can request this as a feature enhancement through your Nvidia contacts who will help you develop the business justification.
