    I don't understand why it is listed as "Nvidia Quadro 4600 Bios for 8800 GTX/GTS graphics cards"

    It looks like some guy found out how to make the Quadro BIOS mod on NVIDIA 8800 cards and is trying to make a quick buck.
    I bet this BIOS will be on P2P sites soon, so Unwinder can take a look what exactly is being done and provide us with a new NVStrap settings for Quadro FX 4600/5600. ;)

    I'm looking for a HOW-TO 8800 to 4600/5600. Any idea of where can I find that?
    I have been looking in the old posts but seems it is undocumented here. Maybe a PM?

    installed the bios, but so far seems just an overclocked one.
    now riva tunner shows gpu to 600 mhz...shouldnt it be at 594 mhz ???

    Well, it looks like the guy selling the BIOS is locking it somehow, since he demands a license payment per card?
    So, that being said, someone should buy the BIOS and email it to Unwinder for reverse engineering... ;)

    We should act quickly, because NVIDIA is probably going to sue the a$$ of that ebay guy. ;)

    so....installed the bios, card still showing as gefoce.
    mod it the old geforce6800-quadro4000 way and now SPECViewperf9.0.3 does no crash anymore as it did with the old bios.
    going back to geforce mod for futher testing.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but thats not a BIOS mod to convert to quadros, its just a BIOS mod that overclocks 8800's and Quadros. Something that I would think is easily done through software.

    The ebay guy claims that it makes gaming cards perform same or better than Quadros in pro apps, so i don't think it's just overclocking...

    i don't think the biosmod is enough- AFAIK it's not doing anything more than NVStrap.

    It seems they found a way and though they would give it away for free at first "i.e. the pdf"

    then they decided to be greedy and sell it on ebay...

    at least thats what it looks like... Maybe some one can download those files listed above and play around with there 8800.... remember back up your stock bios first

    Did you upgrade your BIOS? I hope that yes...
    Is the card recognized as quadro?
    Any benchmark?
