Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi @Klem

I saw you already did this for someone else but the vbios is no longer available for download.

 

Please can you help me unlock my vbios so I can overclock my m2000m beyond the 135mhz limit?
My laptop: HP ZBook G2 running inf modded driver version 385.73

 

Hope you can hook me up.
Thank you in advance!

Hi, Klem!

Can you unlock the voltage slider in MSI Afterburner/NVInspector and unlock the max o/c limit (+135Mhz) on my Quadro M5000M?

Here is the screenshot of GPU-Z and the vbios.rom:

Thank you for the plethora of information in this thread. I'm planning on upgrading my 770m to 900 series gpu so I'm reading up on what I can. It's interesting what an unlocked bios can do for a system.  IHoping I can do the same mods in the future.

@Klem I'm not sure who I should contact who might be able to help me on here, or even be willing to. 

 

Last Saturday I installed a Quadro M4000M in my Dell Precision M6700. I got it working... Had to modify the INF file in the driver package to get it to install, but it is working well now.

 

What I need help with is overclocking this thing.  I can get +135 on the core with Nvidia Inspector. I installed Maxwell bios tweaker II and I am just not experienced enough to mess around in here yet.  I had modded a vbios a couple years ago with Kepler bios tweaker and it worked well, but I'm real rusty and don't want to mess up the new card...  Any help would be appreciated. I am looking for something modest. It would be great if I could get a little more on the core like maybe +200 or +250 (I'm not sure what these are capable of, but I wouldn't want to run within 25mhz of max. I would like something any version of these cards regardless of the silicon lottery should be capable of) and a memory boost would be nice which I cannot get with Nvidia Inspector. 

 

Thanks

Hi Klem, I have an Asus Rog GL552VW-DM149 laptop with the latest version 300 of the bios.
I tried the overclock GTX 960M but I noticed that the max limit of the mem clock is +140MHz and going a little further it already starts crashing.
Can anything be done to unlock this limit? I have seen on the web that some have taken it up to +450/+700MHz with the same card, how is it possible?
I await your news, thanks.

Hi!

It's not a bios limitation. It's means that memory type on your Nvidia card can't overclock more than +140 MHz. Because on your card Elpida memory chips. 

Samsung memory chips can overclock much more. Hynix and Micron memory chips also maybe can overclock more than Elpida.

      Hi there guys,
       
      I've been looking into getting a new GPU for my laptop (4-lane PCI-e) and enclosure (HP Omen Enclosure) but I cannot decided between the RX 5700 XT and the RTX 2070 (non SUPER).
       
      I did some price to performance calculations (higher is better) with some of the best prices I can currently get in the UK.
       

       
      The RX 5700 XT does perform better and is cheaper than the RTX 2070 (Although the 2070 does come with 2 games) but my main concern is drivers and from what I've heard NVIDIA cards work a lot better with eGPUs than AMD.
       
      If anyone has experience using both red & green or if anyone else has any other input i'd love to hear your experiences and input.
       
      Thanks.

      Hello everyone,
      some time by now I flashed a custom Vbios (thank you Klem) on an Acer Predator 15 G9-591 and I started doing some tests about how far I could go overclocking the gtx 970m without running too hot. With the voltage up to 1150mV and something like 300 additional MHz for the core clock, in the strongest stress condition for both Gpu and Cpu ( i7-6700hq undervolted), the Gpu reaches a max temp of 85C (with some 86 spikes but never more than that).
      Considering that soon I'm going to relid both Cpu and Gpu and clean everything in the internals (laptop is 4 years old) I think I'm going to have some additional heatroom.
      I've already tested some further overclocking and I noticed that even if the temperatures remains under 93C (which is just for testing purposes, but after relidding temps could be nicer) graphical glitches occur and after some time most games crash. But my question is, could it be because of lack of power supply? The laptop charger provides 180W 
      Could there be an increase in overclock margins with a 230W psu or something like that? (Obviously with the same 19.5V output)
      If anybody tried something like that on any laptop model, or knows the matter, I'd like to know

      After spending significant time and effort to obtain "DC" screen for 8770w (which is essentially a regular IPS panel with fancy board that converts 8bpc LVDS to 10bpc DP), I have finally got and installed one. All works great, except of the one problem...

      It has pretty bad banding / posterization in lower shadows. I have tried profiling it in different modes (full range, sRGB, rec709) - issue persists, and it indeed shows only in the lowest part of the characteristic curve. Mids and highlights are represented fine and show low deviation from reference values.

      GPU is HP K4000M, Nvidia drivers installed "as it is", video-card is identified without a hitch.
      Banding was not present with the original TN panel using the same GPU.
       
      While checking a software side, I have noticed that Win10 has bit depth set to 8-bit...
       

       
      My initial reaction was, - "Easy, let's change it in `nvidia-settings` and we're all set":

      ...but that would be too easy, right? After selecting 10bpc and clicking "Apply" screen went off and back on, only to show that depth stayed at 8bpc. Repeating the above few times yielded exactly the same result and I'm not in a hurry to meet a cliched (and laymen) definition of insanity.
       
      Let's check GPU-Z. So far so good, nothing unusual. Notice the highlighted BIOS version and subvendor string:
       
      Time to delve into other tabs. We are running WDDDM v2.4 which supports GPU dithering, but hey... BIOS version has changed!
       
      Briefly back to `nvidia-settings` to check what is reported by vendor's own utility:

       
      So far, we have two strings for BIOS version:
      80.04.5A.00.02 (let's call it an "A") 80.4.33.0.37 (let's call it a "B")  
      Notice how 2nd one seems to not follow hexademical notation. Lastly, "NVIDIA BIOS" drop-down, reports "A" version:
       
      ...and monitor section which confirms that rig is indeed capable of 10bpc, but currently running at mere 8bpc:

       
      Windows "Adapter settings", reports version "B". It's 2019, diversity is a must.

       
      "NVidia inspector" is of the same opinion:

       
      Now, let's use some seriously legit tools and check-in exported BIOS file in `nvflash`:

       
      Here we have two three interesting findings:
      Reported vendor is Dell, not an HP. See this link for details. BIOS version is back to "A". Have I already mentioned diversity? MXM module uses MX25L2005 flash storage in WSON-8 packaging. If things go real nasty, we should be able to rescue a patient via Pomona clip and external programmer.  
      Loading the same file in "Kepler BIOS tweaker" confirms the facts:

       
      EDID settings, courtesy of NVidia Control Panel. Hex dump can be found at the bottom of this post.
      ...Shall I be worried about "60.02Hz" refresh rate?
       
      To summarize:
      Why two different BIOS versions are reported? Anything to do with UEFI (e.g. HP is sideloading its own during boot)?.. Why two different vendors reported? As far as I remember, this is branded HP GPU. Where to get "clean" BIOS of K4000M for future experiments? Ideally from 8770w equipped with "DreamColor" panel from a factory.

      Hi guys, bit of a rookie to the whole EGPU scene. Currently I have:
       
      - MacBook Pro 2015 13inch (3.1GHz Core i7 16GB RAM)
      - Razer X Core 
      - Apple TB3 to TB2 Adapter
      -  TB2 Cable (Cable Matters)
      - 23inch AOC External Monitor
       
      I am wonder about what graphics card to get to run X-Plane11 with high graphic settings?
      I have purgewrangler set up and ready to use with an AMD graphics card, but am also open to the idea of an Nvidia graphics card.
      Any advice appreciated. I did not buy a Windows PC as I need a Mac for various other things and wanted an all-in-one laptop.

      I have been attempting to change my boost clocks values for the longest time, though I've been unsuccessful. I managed to flash my modded BIOS, though no changes seem to have had happened, along with no errors either. Here's all the stuff I used and was able to get. If someone is able to help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated.
