Hello everyone

I am new to ffmpeg and i am trying to encode some video to x265 with 
following command :
ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -c:v hevc_nvenc -c:a aac -b:a 128k output.mp4 and 
what i get is "Driver does not support the required nvenc API version. 
Required: 8.0 Found: 7.1" .
If you can point me on which driver to update i would appreciate. Also 
my OS is ubuntu 16.04  ffmpeg ->
