Using desktop card as workstation card? Tags: Graphics Cards Desktops Workstations Geforce Graphics Last response: September 24, 2006 6:55 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Dante_Jose_Cuervo September 24, 2006 5:58:09 PM Ok so I heard about some guy using like a Geforce card to work with workstation apps without any sort of performance hit. How exactly would one take a Gefore card and make it able to work as a Quadro and a Geforce? More about : desktop card workstation card sithscout80 September 24, 2006 6:48:44 PM It's called soft-modding, it is mostly using different sorts of drivers to fool the card into giving the options and enhancements of Quadro cards. I got it to work on my GeForce FX 5600, benchmarked it before and after using SPECviewperf. It ran at about 1fps before and about 6-8fps after the soft-mod. I remember that is was a pain to find the drivers and took about an hour to install, also games performance went down. The performance isn't as good as a real dedicated quadro card but it will help. Here's an article on Guru3D that explains how to do it. Dante_Jose_Cuervo September 24, 2006 6:55:16 PM Cool, much thanks to you man. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
