New arrival


Recommended Posts

Hello

Also a casualty of the NBR closure...loved that forum.  See some of same folks here.  Been a notebook guy since late 90s.  First laptop was a Toshiba Tecra 780, IIRC 13" screen, Pentium 2, DVD player, and monster 5GB drive.  Current is Dell Precision M6800.

Don't mind at all.  Was googling nvidia driver inf mod and landed here.  That's when I discovered NBR forum had bit the dust.  Had replaced the M6800 GPU with a 980M few years ago and needed refresher on inf mod procedure.  Aaron44126 was on NBR and helped me from time to time.  Believe he has an M6700.

Ha, yes, I am still rocking the M6700 (...though only for another 3-4 months...) and I've done my fair share of GPU swaps and NVIDIA INF mods.  Doing my best to make this a go-to place for Precision MWS users to discuss the systems' ins and outs (old and new models alike).  Not quite as active as NBR was (yet?) but a number of regulars have made their way over.  Do stop by if you have any issues to discuss.

Good to hear.  My 6800 is going on about 7yrs old.  I've never had a more reliable laptop.  Love having the extra internal drives.  With the 980M it can hold it's own with games.  Not a big gamer but occasionally enjoy a Doom Eternal frenzy.  There will likely come a time when the Maxwell GPUs will go the way of the Keplers and no longer be supported.  :(

Maxwell is the oldest supported architecture from NVIDIA right now, so it is reasonable to expect that they'll stop supporting it within the next ≈2 years.  (Maxwell GPUs first appeared in 2014, so that is a pretty good long run of support.)  However, no reason that you cannot continue using it for some time after NVIDIA stops releasing new drivers.  It's not very often that new games require a certain brand-new NVIDIA driver version in order to run.

 

An open question is whether they will split the end of support timeframe for mobile and desktop GPUs like they did with Kepler.  (Kepler laptop GPU support ended in early 2019, but desktop support continued through later in 2021.)
