No, I do not think so.

This driver has a 3-digit minor version number and this can be important.

when you look into the message https://boinc.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=13698&postid=98442 the driver has the version 390.132, for me it is not the same as the CUDA driver version 390.13.

Version 440.10 is an older version than 440.100

After updating the NVIDIA driver to the latest version (440.100), I get the following message from Asteroids@home:

Asteroids@home | Message from server: NVIDIA GPU: Upgrade to the latest driver to process tasks using your computer's GPU

when I look in the event log, I see the following entries for the driver version:

Starting BOINC client version 7.16.6 for x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (driver version 440.10, CUDA version 10.2, compute capability 7.5, 4096MB, 3968MB available, 9216 GFLOPS peak)
CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 1 (not used): GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (driver version 440.10, CUDA version 10.2, compute capability 6.1, 4096MB, 3974MB available, 4568 GFLOPS peak)
OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (driver version 440.100, device version OpenCL 1.2 CUDA, 7982MB, 3968MB available, 9216 GFLOPS peak)
OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 1 (ignored by config): GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (driver version 440.100, device version OpenCL 1.2 CUDA, 6075MB, 3974MB available, 4568 GFLOPS peak)
OS: Linux Fedora: Fedora 32 (Workstation Edition) [5.7.6-201.fc32.x86_64|libc 2.31 (GNU libc)]

the driver version for OpenCL is correct.
the driver version for CUDA is cut off.

I updated the driver from the rpmfusion repository.

is this a BOINC or NVIDIA problem?
