geForce FX into Quadro FX (Can it be done?) and how is Quadro for games?

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Luke Piasecki, Dec 19, 2003.

  1. Hi,
    I'm awaiting my geForce FX 5900 (non-ultra, 128mb ram).
    I wonder if geForce FX 5900 can still be hacked into quadro, like geForce
    could in the past?
    (If so, please point me to sites with the software I need).
    And while we are on the subject, woudl one get any speed up or slowdown when
    using Quadro FX for games?
    Or perhaps any DirectX incompatibilites?

    Thank you,

  2. Hi,

    I don't have the same model that your getting, but
    I have a Leadtek GeForce FX5900 Ultra 256mb,
    I installed Rivatuner with the 52.16 from Nvidia.
    Rivatuner said it wasn't tested with these driver
    but it worked anyway. when I rebooted my machine
    it asked for drivers for a Quadro FX, also from the
    Nvidia site I installed the 52.14 Quadro drivers
    My system reports that I have a Quadro FX3000.
    I can't say for sure that I have the real performance
    of an FX3000 but my problems I had with the Cad
    software I use are gone.

    If you have more question ask away.
