    Well the BigBang II or whatever coming next month (or is it this month?), isn't it supposed to allow more performance and better scaling with SLI? I thought I remembered reading that...so if so, I hope it does some good for you SLI folks out there! :D

    Everything that the "Big Bang" is, makes me want to just wowzer in my pants... lol.. But, like you said.. Make you think about SLi now, and then if Intel allows SLI and Crossfire on the new Chip, it might just make everyone think of ether or...

    Yep, timelines. United States are in - GMT time zone, but i am in +2 GMT timezone, so 1st of october comes to me earlier than in U.S. ;)
    BTW i was bored today, and made a G80 GTS (maybe works on GTX an Ultra too) to Quadro FX4600 softmod drivers for Vista64. Works for me, but don't now about bencmark scores because i am too lazy to bench ATM.

    Quadro Cards are using the same GPU's ar Desktop/Gaming cards, so mod is possible on more than G80.
    From Quadro *.inf supported GPU's:
    BR02 (QuadroFX 3400/4400)
    C51 (Quadro NVS210s)
    G70 (QuadroFX 4500)
    G71 (QuadroFX 1500M/5500/3500/1500/4500X2)
    G72 (QuadroFX NVS120M/350)
    G73 (QuadroFX 560/560M)
    G80 (QuadroFX 4600/5600)
    G84 (QuadroFX 370/1600M/570/1700)
    G86 (QuadroFX NVS290)
    G92 (QuadroFX 3700)
    NV40 (QuadroFX 4000)
    NV41 (QuadroFX Go1400/3450/4000 SDI/1400)
    NV43 (QuadroFX NVS440/540M/550/540)
    NV44 (QuadroFX NVS285)

    If anyone is interested in this GeForce to Quadro softmod drivers thing, let me know. I can try to mod these drivers for other cards and Windows versions, but i need someone to test them on other cards. :)
