I'm not sure if anybody has noticed, but since the NVidia driver version 384.76 it says that it has CUDA 9.0.
I'm not sure if it is the first version with CUDA 9.0, but the version 382.53 was CUDA 8.0.

Thank you for your tip.
I've checked also that CUDA 9.0 is packed with latest Linux drivers version 384.69:

Sun 27 Aug 2017 08:34:06 WEST | | CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (driver version 384.69, CUDA version 9.0, compute capability 6.1, 4031MB, 3800MB available, 2138 GFLOPS peak)
Sun 27 Aug 2017 08:34:06 WEST | | OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (driver version 384.69, device version OpenCL 1.2 CUDA, 4031MB, 3800MB available, 2138 GFLOPS peak)
.

I noticed this a long time, but in all releases notes of drivers still indicates support only CUDA 8.0.

It seems that CUDA 9.0 is mainly for Volta, though some of the features can be used on Pascal and even earlier cards.

Maybe ACEMD3 (whatever that is) will call for improved drivers at some point, even if not immediately. The trend in folding at least is towards "deep learning", which benefits from new cards and drivers, and maybe that applies to GPUGrid also eventually.

I believe the way this works, is ... Cuda 9.0 support is baked into the drivers, but the Cuda 9.0 toolkit hasn't been finalized and publicly released just yet.

If I'm not mistaken, this is all completely normal. ie: I've seen the same thing happen (drivers have support early), on prior Cuda releases.
