Quadro k4000m base on what ?

Recommended Posts

As we all know Quadro's are based on GTX with different vbios (or maybe im wrong ?)

I was looking around which GTX may be the base for the quadro k4000m , but im not 100% sure which one .

Possible candidates :


-same bus width(256bit)

-same amount of memory (4gb)

-same amount of pipe lines (960)

-similar memory speed (my k4000m easily achieves that memory speed)


-different code name (N13E-GSR)



-similar code name (N14E-GS)

-same amount of pipe lines (960)


-diferent amount of memory (3gb)

-diferent tpd


Or maybe k4000m is same as k5000m but castraded by Vbios (hopefully) which would mean that k4000m=k5000m=gtx680m/gtx775m ?

Why i want to know ?

I'm thinking about making gtx of my quadro (mainly im playing games , some times autocad)

And maybe trying to unlock it by flashing k5000m bios to check if it can be unlocked.

I'm aware that i can possibly brick my gpu by doing this but im able to desolder vbios chip from card and flash it on programator

I think you need to change the PCI ID, reflashing the BIOS is not enough.  This is set by resistors on the board, moving them around and swapping them out can change the PCI ID.  There was a thread about it on the EEV blog, I think.  Might be worth looking at.  I don't think they looked at any laptop GPUs, though, so you may need to do some work to find the correct resistors to swap.

Thread in question is here: http://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/hacking-nvidia-cards-into-their-professional-counterparts/


One more important thing to note: even if the GPU dies are "the same", they could well be binned based on performance/defects.  So even though this sort of a mod might look good on paper, whether it works on any particular card could be a crapshoot, especially if you want to try this and then try overclocking it.

K4000m is basically just 675mx. At least k4000m and 675mx have more or less the same performance in benchmarks on same clock's.

      Please Can Anyone Download The Unlocked Vbios K4000m For Dell M6700 I Want To Overclock 
    • By yussuaif
      Would really like some help with this.
      I Have a HP 8770W Elitebook Workstation.
      its powered by an Intel Core i7-3630QM, 32GB RAM and an Nvidia Quadro K4000M.
      the Quadro's stock clock is 600 MHz- Core/ 700 MHz- Memory.
      its currently overclocked 736 MHz (+135 MHz)- Core/ 1050 MHz (+750 MHz)/ 1100 MHz (+800 MHz)- Memory.
      The GPU temps stay fairly decent in summer ( between 70-75 Degrees Celsius) while loaded and CPU around 5 degrees higher. In winter the drop to the mid/high 60's so i believe there is still some space there to push it a bit harder.
      The problem is nor Nvidia Inspector nor MSI Afterburner  allow me to overclock the core over 135 MHz, the memory i know is maxed out because anything over just bugs out.
      Is there anything i can do that would allow me to go over that threshold of 135 MHz.
