    try installing newest driver with only (!) modding inf to recognize your card.. then copy over patched atikmdag.sys from 8.723 driver to windows\system32\drivers.. works perfect for me, even with Mobility HD5870..

    greetings

    btw. this was a hint by schoko three pages earlier..

    wo nice, what driver are you doing this with? im going to try this with 8.9113.4

    edit--

    Looks like they changed things a bit should i mod the inf in the W7_INF OR W7A_INF folder?

    CL140087.inf, CW140087.inf, C7140087.inf, CH140087.inf

    also there is many inf files now which one should i change? for windows 7 64bit , 8750 firepro?

    bleh they changed the [Manufacturer] section too which chip is the 8750? for 4870 mod? would it be RV770? if so i dont see it on the list...

    Yeah I forgot to mention this.. I don't know which folder I took (moved and renamed) but I have C7140087.inf and CH14087.inf in it..

    I think you only need to mod C7140087 for Windows 7 (Windows NT 6.1)..

    I have HD4890 and first part looks like that..

    Code:
    [ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.6.1]
    [B]"%AMD9460.1%" = ati2mtag_RV7XGL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9460[/B]
    
    Then you have to define the language independent name variable for your card

    Code:
    ; Localizable Strings
    ;
    DiskId       = "Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. Installation DISK (VIDEO)"
    GraphAdap    = "Graphics Adapter"
    ATI          = "Advanced Micro Devices, Inc."
    DisplayUninstall = "AMD Display Component Uninstall"
    ATIR300="WDDM (R300)"
    [B]AMD9460.1 = "ATI FirePro V8775 (FireGL)"[/B]
    
    I called mine V8775 because I have HD4890 ;) OK I think this is it, works fine for me this way..

    Greetings

    are you getting realview to work in Solidworks?

    Viewperf 10 SW01 test weighted mean 138fps

    but with 7.23 drivers 148fps

    Sorry, can't test RealView as we don't have SolidWorks.. I only benchmarked CATIA and got noticable performance boost from 8.723 driver.. Regarding the name, look at "; Localizable Strings" section and search the device ID of your card then you can change the string displayed..

    CADCAT: are you getting the "copy over patched atikmdag.sys" hack to work with dual monitors? When I try it with the latest drivers, it's only allowing me to use one monitor...

    Good laptop video card for Firepro mod?

    I looked on ebay for mobil 4870 but those are really pricey. What is the next level down that can be modded what laptop video card would be a safe bet to mod. and still get some performace.

    i modded a x1600 but that one is pretty weak.

    thanks

    What do you mean with pricey? Got my HD4890 for 50 Euro.. (used of course) If this is too much you could look for HD3870 e.g.. For Notebook I would look for HD2600XT/2700, HD3650 or higher HD4650 or higher, HD5650 or higher.. Important is GDDR Ram..

    New Issue with 4870 mod

    I have a very large assembly in Solidworks. It was created on a PC with an unmodded 4870 card. For some reason the assembly will not open on any PC modded 4870 to FirePro 8750. If I mod the card to 8750 on that main PC it won't open again..

    Should mention the PC is modded perfectly. Its very happy opening all kinds of large parts and assemblies.

    Any ideas. This is very odd. Never before had this kind of issue with FrePro Softmod. Thank you!!!!..

    :nerd:

    I dont get this

    Does anyone have advise on Why Solidworks sometimes does not see the softmod? 7.23 drivers 4780 as FirePro 8700. It works for a while then seems to not see the card as a pro series again.. SWX 2012. Thanks.

    Win7 64

    Is there a way to reset how SWX sees the card?

    Hello guys, I need to buy a laptop ( new, not used one ) with fully softmodable graphic card, which gpu do you suggest ? Im Solidworks user and from time to time I need to visit my customers and show them my products ( realview is important in this case :) ), since I've got stationary workstation I don't want to spend money for expensive mobile one, this laptop has to give me a possibility to run a product showcase and it's not desired to everyday work , however I don't like to see any blocks and glitches during moving and rotating models so opengl performance must be reasonable - my assemblies are usually under 500 parts ( mostly 50-200 ) and my other pc with modded HD4850 is doing just fine so mobile equivalent should be ok.

    SWX keeps losing the ability to use the SoftMod

    Would using a modded atiogl.xml ? help does anyone have that file for 8.723.2 Drivers?

    The link on the first page in down.

    Or should I just reinstall SWX?


    edit sorry for the multiple post i was trying to delete them.

    edit adding update:

    I determined the problem was when I have a seccond 4870 enabled. Not sure why SWX is all of the sudden losing the FireGL capabilities when the seccond 4870 is running. Both cards are modded as 8750. Very odd. But SWX gets the fast frame rate back from the 8750 when I disable card#2. Anyone seen this? Seems after a fresh install of the OS it works for a while with both but possibly eventually trips up and reverts. This is particully the case when taking a file created on another system. Having both cards running as 8750 worked for me for over 1 year. This is just a new wierdness.

    Thanks.

    In the same position myself.
    Go for radeon hd6990m & mod bios for all texture processors b4 flashing to give you firepro m"9900".
    Only trouble is finding one with ivy bridge cpu also.

    OK here's my offer:

    I will give you the best mod possible at the moment (8.723 driver or newest with patched atikmdag.sys from 8.723) to mod your HD2/3/4/5/6xxx card to FirePro. As I have not much time and no more passion to answer the same questions all the time I will give you the patched driver you only have to install (Windows XP/7/8, x86 and x64) and the instructions (enable testmode, signing driver..). I can also help with the installation via TeamViewer..

    I would do this for a PayPal donation to compensate the effort.. Send me a pm if you need help..

    Maybe I take the money and donate it to someone who can help with future mods but I don't know atm..

    Regards

    P.S. Anyone can have this for free but then you have to rtfm, hmkey? ;)

    Hi CadCat,

    Are you really getting a 6XXX card to function 100%? What kind of performance gains are you getting over the 4870?

    What FirePro is a 6XXX card.

    Have you changed the patchscript in any major way beyond the walkthrough instuctions?



    Thanks, Rich
