GeForce to Quadro

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a question about this guide to "change" your GeForce into a Quadro.

In the guide you use RivaTuner:

If your GeForce graphics card has been verified to have a Quadro equivalent, you should proceed to download and install RivaTuner. When you run RivaTuner, you will see the Main screen (picture below). In the Target adapter section, click on the little icon next to the Customize... option.

A series of icons will appear. Select the first icon (Low-level system settings). This will open up a new window called "Low-level system tweaks". Click on the NVStrap tab (first picture below). In the PCI DeviceID settings section, select custom from the list of Graphics adapter identification options (second picture below).


Next, check the Use ROM straps for PCI DeviceID programming option (third picture above). This allows you to select the specific NVIDIA Quadro card you want to emulate. In this case, I chose the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600. After you have selected the NVIDIA Quadro graphics card you want to emulate with your GeForce card, click on the Apply or OK buttons. Then reboot your PC for the change to take effect.
Will this take effect not only in windows but in other OS'es on the same machine?

Heres the guide:

The reason I'm considering this is that if I could use quadro drivers, it will likely fix my issues with Autodesk Maya and my 8800GT.

It should be noted that this will not work with G92 GPUs yet. That includes the 8800GT, 8800GTS 512MB, 9800GTX, and 9800GX2.

However, it may work with the 8800GT in the future. Rivaturner just needs to be updated for it. Which could take a lot of work, and possibly might never happen.
