Softmod gGTX 570 to a QUADRO

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

i read some threads and how-to´s about softmodding the previous gtx models like the gtx460. they have equivalent QUADRO models and so it is possible to softmod them to a QUADRO.
But there are no Quadros technically equal to the newer ones like the gtx 570.
Until now it seems that you can´t softmod them.
Is this the way nvidia goes? First the GEFORCE series update then the QUADRO?
What about the past? About the gtx 460? Was it the same thing?
May it be possible to softmod the GTX570 when the QUADRO comes out with GTX570 architecture?

I need a softmod because i only do CAD (university) on my workstation, no gaming. I just set up my new system (including a gtx570) and noticed that it isn´t possible to do a softmod.
Now i think about selling it and order a gtx460 with 2gb for my CAD-work.
I want to use the special features a quadro offers, especially in solidworks and 3dsmax/vray.

so my questions:
when will it be possible to softmod the gtx570?
will it be possible, or does nvidia wants to stop that softmod-thing?
or should i sell it now and get the 470?

thx for help,

jan

I'm sorry, but as far as I know, the last cards to allow this were the G80 cards from 2006/207.

I do not believe it is still possible.

Hey, as you can see from my sig I have a quadro 2000 and its good for autocad, excellent even. Only go with the 2gb if its a must other wise dont go for it because its not needed. The 5xx series are good but are not built for autocad work, unfortunatly I want to game as well (the quadro hits 100 FPS on bfbc2, 60 FPS in heavy conditions) but most games dont have support for it because its not a gaming card anyway I'm rambling, so far its not possible to softmod a GTX570 to a quadro, but if you are only going to be doing Autocad and other designing programs then go for a quadro.

I hope that it helped :S

Try Xtreme-G 275.65 drivers, they are Quadro-based.

Otherwise you can get the latest Quadro drivers and add your video card ID to the nv_disp.inf or nv4_disp.inf (or get modded INF from laptopvideo2go), but I'm not sure it will work.

What do think about this page?
It sounds easy....
When i check the comparison lists, i see that a gtx 470 could be turned into
Quadro 4000, 5000 or 6000!!!

@ adridu59

I will try it.
Driver is downloading...where do i have to put in the id of my card?
The .inf is long....at the bottom f the file there is the list of quadros and geforces.
Is this the point?

thx

Ok, quadro driver it self works ok for this card, but... what about bios, how to make the driver believe that the card really is quadro?! I want to do bios mode and/or change bios for a quadro equivalent of gtx 470. What i do not know is what the equvalent of this card really is, and what settings in bios of a quadro card i must change before flashing bios for quadro bios to work on gtx 470.
Please help.

Hi there,

Did you find any solution for your gtx 470? I've changed the device id using nibitor and flushed successfully but gpu-z still shows the old device id... Anyway, any help would be highly appreciated...

thx
