Today arrived my new vga: Quadro fx 4600 ( used). after installing into pc seeme all ok but..i noticed in the system profiler and on zeus ssoftware ..it runs at 8x !!!!!!!! i used simply graphics enabler yes on my chamaleon 2rc3 on snow leopard 10.6.8 but...it's the same on Lion 10.7.2 using graphics enabler yes on chimera! I can see 8x instead 16 as was on previous vga (8600gt 256mb). Do you think i buyed a quadro broken? I also try to change the 6 pins power cable...to be more sure, but nothings happens! My quadro is on only one slot x16 of my motherboard! Zeus say " it can runs at 16x but currently it' s at 8x" , system profiler say pcilane width 8x on slot-1!!! Some suggestion? Thanks! this is the screen! img819.imageshack.us/img819/3271/quadrofx4600mini.jpg
SOLVED! Sometime i'm stupid! i was another pcie on second pcie slot, so motherboart set x16 slot to x8 !! AHAHAHAH!!!! OOOOOOOOK now quadro fx 4600 is perfect! I used also gfx util ...just to see the revision rom in the system profile!
Thanks! now i would like to overclock my quadro fx 4600..since it have the same gpu and ram of 8800 gts ( g80). On osx there is "Zeus" , an overclocking and flashing tool, but..it work only if graphic card is installed on bottom slot (8x slot). I would like to overclock my card but only if it's running at 16x ! Do you rhink there is another way on osx ? Thanks!
