But in this case. I think I've atleast cracked the easy bit. On this
page. There's a complete list of the GPU's that Nvidia use.
If you scroll down to the bottom of that page you'll see the latest GPUs and probably recognize some of the values out to the left in the field. I see GK104, GM107 and the monster GK110 with and without B.
Now, the furthest to left you see something called a core pciid
and a value below that. That value is the different variations of the card.
For example if you look at the GK104 row, you see the core pciid
As we all know the [NVE4] GK104 comes in many different types and variations, you'll find an almost up2date list here
The specific id for those different cards are as following;
GTX770: 0x1184"Hence the 118X" from the envytools site, the GK104 comes, as I wrote earlier in many types, some listed above..
I found theese values in the "ListDevices.txt" located in C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\335.23\Win8_WinVista_Win7_64\International
on your computer it might differ since you might not have installed it in the same volume as I did, but most likely, you have done that.
Now, the tricky part. I've got a Gigabyte GTX680 WF3 rev1 PCB
in my GTX760 WF3 rev1 - this means that my PCB fully supports the GTX680 circuit. Meaning that if I could find a way to unlock the GPU. I could have myself some extremely nice performance boost.
So I need to get the 0x1180 core pciid instead of the 0x1187 core pciid onto my card.
So how would I do that?
I'd think it's a root related thing you have to do. Here's a quote from the envytools page:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This PEXTDEV that Nvidia calls it is probably the key to unlock stuff. And that program is probably extremely secure. So we need something in the style of it in order to unlock the cards.
I believe this apply to all the newer cards, such as the 780/780ti/760/770/660/670/680 n' so on.
What do you guys think, do you think I'm on to something?
