quadra 700 XGL
« on: April 17, 2015, 10:51:43 AM »
mactron had tried to flash a dual DVI quadra 900 XGL with the geforce 4 ti 4600 rom on macelite
this was unsuccessful to make the card work in a mac

there is however a mac rom on macelite for the quadra 700 XGL
and there are a number of these cards available for very little money

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=Quadro%204%20700%20XGL&clk_rvr_id=816048287332&mfe=search

this card is very similar in core clock to the ti 4600
and also in design (ports, capactors, layout)

http://www.gpureview.com/Quadro4-700-XGL-card-489.html

we do not know however if this card would work in mac os 9 the way that the asus 8460 has been proven to (by diehard)

but there is a rom specific to this card posted

... and the worst thing was that I failed to make a custom ROM for the Quadro 900 following the MacElite instructions due lack of data  :'(

I want dual digital output, DVI + ADC or better yet: DVI + DVI. So the only solutions are the original Ti 4600 Mac Edition or this Quadro 900.
... well may be there are some from MSI and Gainward, but:
... but may be those are really Geforce4 Ti 4800:  the AGP8X version of the Geforce4 Ti whith the GPU NV28. Here we have to be carefull, as the AGP8X cards need hardware modifications and the NV28 may be not compatible with Mac Os 9 nVidia drivers

i think the gainward ti4600 is agp 4x

i think this card was originally called "Gainward GeForce4 Ultra/750XP"

look at the agp connectors

heres one by "suma" ? i never saw before


easy enuff to look at the gpu chip the 4800 says 8x right on it


honestly i think the quadra part of the card is what made u have a difficulty
if u get a normal ti 4600 powered non-qudra card i think u would have a beter chance at success
or this 700 xgl which has a specific mod for it.. but we dont know if this mod supports os9
probably not... the asus 8460 is the only one that had a success in os9 because the drivers explicitly support this gpu
it cant be that the asus is such a special case.. these other brand ti4600 cards have a good chance to be as easy
as the 8460, moreso with the cards that are dvi/vga but i think there is a chance to find one that will work with dual dvi

click to take a look;)

Yeah, I think so.
That's what I have found underneath the Quadro 900 heatsink:
