Short description of error
No compatible GPUs forund for path tracing

When I choose in the CUDA system in Cycles Render Devices, it tells me that No compatible GPUs found for path tracking. Cycles will render on the CPU. But in Blender 2.79 this worked

Cuando escojo en sistema CUDA dentro de Cycles Render Divices, me sale No compatible GPUs found for path tracking. Cycles will render on the CPU. Pero en Blender 2.79 esto funcionaba

Event Timeline

Cycles in Blender 2.8 requires a CUDA compute capability of 3.0 or higher. The GeForce GTX 560M has a compute capability of 2.1

NVIDIA CUDA is supported for GPU rendering with NVIDIA graphics cards. Blender supports graphics cards with compute capability 3.0 and higher. To make sure your GPU is supported, see the list of NVIDIA graphics cards with the compute capabilities and supported graphics cards.

Blender had to switch to CUDA 9 inorder to support the newer generation of NVIDIA graphics cards. Unfortunately this new CUDA
version also dropped support for older graphics cards.

Based on Evan's comment, this is a hardware problem on the user side. Closing

I had the same problem with NVIDIA Quadro NVS 5400m graphics card, whose driver is currently still supporting and updated by NVIDIA, but they stoped its CUDA version at 9.0 and never goes beyond.

I feel very sorry for Blender that those low end users are being dropped, who I think maybe the major people who loves Blender because it had a history of broad support of hardware platforms...

yes, I'm one of them, and I feel being abandoned, or forced to replace my favorate working platforms, especially notebooks.
