Here's a weird one... not sure how much faith to put in the Xbench scores, however my ones for the graphics part fell about 15-20% when I changed from the EFIStudio's 8800gtx 768 over to the one you made for me, (the quadroFX 4600).
Hola, I did all the steps and successfully install the GFX strings and it was recognized my card, but still not QE + CI. I am having a PNY Nvidia Geforce 6200 AGP 8x I used "Files for Generic 256 mb cards: Click to Download" Is there any specific for this card? Is the AGP bus make the GFX string different? Any help please? Thanks
hello , forst time here, noticed the gfx string thread..
i have a Forsa 9600GSO 384 MB / G92 (yeah, weird ram config, i know) i got it work using nvinject 52 but recognized as 8600GTS 320MB (there are no option for installing 384MB card) but QE / CI works perfect.
is there any way i can benefit from GFX strings edit to get my card recognise properly?
Ok even if i didnt know which file to start for my 9800gx2, i tried by hcoosing one. I used Files for 9800GTX 512 mb cards followed instructions as replace this part of code: PciRoot(0x1)/Pci(0xe,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) and builded strings file and paste in boot.plist with 1920x1200x32 resolution.
Well now my system is running in right resolution but i think something wrong. Maybe aquamac can you post your 9800gx2 string? Maybe it will work for me too...or tell me on which file to work from your download list.
This is result:
PS. I still have no drivers installed, im waiting for set first right gfx strings, then i will do step for drivers from your installer.
That is not a card I know well, is it based on 7 series or 8 series. If it is 512 mb (which I think it is) and it is 7 series, then the rom would need reflashing, but if it is 8 series that would not be necessary.
Alternatively, you could change your 8800 GT into a Quadro FX 3700 by reflashing it with the rom I have made. I made roms for both the 512 & 1 gig cards.
Thanks a lot for this great guide, but i have some problems I did all the steps and successfully install the GFX strings. OS was recognized my card, but still not QE + CI. I'm running Leo4All v4.1 (have tryed another distros with no luck) OS X v 10.5.4 on Palit 512Mb 9800GTX+, mobo is Asus M2N-E [upd] update OS to 10.5.5 with "Mac OS X 10.5.5 Leopard update for AMD", now i've got second DVI working, System Profiler shows this:
