- 1. Is Thunderbolt required to support Pocket AI?
Yes, Thunderbolt 3 or above with eGPU support is required to use Pocket AI. Thunderbolt 4 is more preferred.
- 2. How do I know if my computer supports Thunderbolt?
Check the ports on your computer. Thunderbolt 3/4 ports look like USB‐C ports with the addition to the Thunderbolt logo. If in doubt, consult your computer documentation.
- 3. What hardware do I need to use Pocket AI?
In addition to the computer, you will need a Thunderbolt cable and a USB‐C PD power supply supporting at least 45W.
- 4. Where can I find the Pocket AI NVIDIA driver?
- 5. How can I check if the driver is installed correctly on Windows?
To verify that the Windows driver is installed correctly and that your Pocket AI is working properly:
- Open your Device Manager. Click Start and then type Device Manager in the search prompt. Click Device Manager or press the Enter key.
- Under Display adapters, verify that NVIDIA RTX A500 Embedded GPU appears.
- To run the NVIDIA System Monitor, click Start, type command, and then click Run as administrator.
- In the command prompt, type nvidia-smi and then press the Enter key. If Pocket AI is installed correctly, you will see NVIDIA RTX A500 in the listing.
- 6. Device manager shows error "Code 47" in the device properties. How can I fix it?
This error is usually caused by a power setting, which requires a minor registry tweak.
To resolve the problem:
From the Start menu, locate and run the Registry Editor app.
In the Registry Editor navigation bar, specify the following path and press the Enter key: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\501a4 d13-42af-4429-9fd1-a8218c268e20\ee12f906-d277-404b-b6da-e5fa1a576df5
