It's true. 8800GTS is a perfect Quadro now (3DSMAX9 ONLY!!!)

    We have been discussing a 8800 quadro-mood at school, no one thought it was possible.
    Congratulations!

    Since softmodded a Geforce 6800 ultra to Quadro fx4000, I have been looked for a new cheap horsepower for my upcoming new computer (using PCI-E of course)

    Could you PM the info Bluefirexp? I just recently posted a thread about what kind of card to get for my father's new CAD machine. I was thinking of getting a 8800GTS to save money on the Quadro, but I know he'd want the best since he does it for a living. You could save me some nice green :approval:

    However he also uses SolidWorks which I think uses OpenGL (I'm not positive) so this won't work for that correct?

    yes, OpenGL Appz don't benefit from the mod, i think i clearly stated this in this thread 3 or 4 times...Only 3dsmax.

    all 8800gts or gtx are made in TSMC, not by xfx or leadtek and so on.

    the are only 2 differences : bios and sticker

    Hey VirtualEx

    If one uses this technique combined with the nvbios is there any chance that the opengl functionality will be unlocked? I am specifically interested in quad buffered opengl. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    sure, but you should consider different core- memclocks (standard, extreme, xxx-edition blabla...) :)

    different clocks are achieved with different bios versions, as you can save your bios, overclock it with nibitor, and then flash it back.

    ps: but don't try this at home unless you know what you are doing.

    Anyone got this mod working with an 8800GTX?

    Tried installing the NVstrap driver and setting to custom 019D (Quadro 5600), but when windows reboots its says that I have an unknown video device. Does one have to uninstall the default Forceware drivers and reinstall the Quadro video drivers after installing the NVStrap driver and forcing the card to a custom device ID?

    Would love the give the Maxtreme drivers a go as some of my larger models bring my machine to a crawl with the default drivers.

    Anytime you change the ID, the OS thinks you have replaced hardware, so you need drivers that support the new ID - if they are already installed, the reboot will automatically use them. If the currently installed drivers do not include the ID in the .inf files, you will need another driver set.

    @Bluefirexp: YGPM ;)

    Could anyone please send me a pm with the quadro mod info? my asus 8800 gtx watertank ed. is sold, I´ll ship it by wednesday and get an 8800 GTS 320mb to replace it, but would love to benchmark this card with and without the mod first, then do the same with the gts 320 and look for differences. Will post the results when I´m done for sure ;). Thanks a lot

    i'm sorry guys- the mod is extremely easy and as i wrote in my first post: reading by searching is the way to go. With this thread i just wanted to inform you, that the mod IS possible. So now you know that you can do it. And even by reading this actual thread here gives the necessary hints. I PMed those members, which i do trust or know for quite some time. All the others are encouraged to find things out themselves. I mean- this is fun, isn't it? That's why we are here. There is no fun without a little risk.

    btw: there seems to be a problem with GTX cards, so the mod might not work with them.
