The driver version required in the PKGBUILD of the package is not the minimum support version, as it discussed with Sven in the comment of the related commit. [1] This change leads to users with old graphic cards cannot upgrade cuda, though the latest version of cuda still supports the backwards capabilities for latency users.

Additional info:
* package version: 11.0.3-1

Steps to reproduce:
* Install nvidia-390xx and nvidia-390xx-utils from AUR
* Install/Upgrade commnuity/cuda

This task depends upon

This will change in cuda 11.1 which we're currently rebuilding for.
