Optix version 0.0.0 is lower than the minimum required version 6.0.0

I wanted to try out the beta for gpu rendering but i cant seem to get it to work, this is the error i receive if i try rendering with render device set to gpu:

[Arnold]: [gpu] Optix version 0.0.0 is lower than the minimum required version 6.0.0 (GPU-rendering)

I tried downloading Optix off of the Nvidia dev site but it did not help... Any idea why this is happening?

You don't need to download Optix -- it's included in the nvidia driver. What version of the nvidia driver are you using? It should be printed in the arnold log.

Yes. Now you need to increase the log verbosity so that info messages are shown. Might as well set it to show everything just to be safe. Instructions: https://docs.arnoldrenderer.com/display/A5AF3DSUG/Log

Download latest drivers (using Quadro p5000) and heaving the same issue. Arnold render settings don't seem to detect my graphics card after this update.

What driver version did you install? The p5000 should work if using the correct driver.
