Does anyone know what is the minimum model for a nVidia graphics card to support Bindless Textures?

I have a nVidia 820m graphics card on my laptop, supports OpenGL 4.5 Core, and it seems like it does not support bindless textures. 
 

 

glxinfo | grep "bindless"
only returns the following two:
- GL_NV_bindless_multi_draw_indirect, 
- GL_NV_bindless_multi_draw_indirect_count
 
I also checked using GLEW_NV_bindless_texture and GLEW_ARB_bindless_texture, they both returned false.
 
Its quite surprising that my card supports most of the "modern" extensions but not bindless textures.

Fermi chips do not support bindless textures. On the Nvidia side you need a Kepler or newer (=Maxwell). Unfortunately the architectures are hard to tell from the chip/card name - as wintertime pointed out, your chip is still a Fermi which means that you are out of luck here :(
