Default Re: Nvidia 6200 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities

Today I have built a computer using the crossfire version of the xpress200 (RD480) and as a videocard I used a geforce6600gt. I have done some basic tests using driver 1.0-8762 and upto now it works stable even in 3d programs. I will keep you guys updated.

Default Re: Nvidia 6200 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities

Folks,
I have not been able to use 3D acceleration with my 7300GS either since
my A8R-MVP motherboard has the infamous ATIRS480 chipset. So, my
question is: What are the NVIDIA based PCI-Express cards that work well with the ATIRS480 chipset while running Fedora Core 5 (or any other linux)??

Comments anyone??

Regards,

Lonni,
Do you have a list of Nvidia based PCI-Express video cards that you
know work with the ATI RS480 chipset??

I'm afraid I do not. I would suggest asking the motherboard manufacturer, as they would be best equipped to qualify videocards with their products.

Thanks,
Lonni

Lonni,
Interesting comment, since my 7300GS works fine with the ATI RS480 under
Windows XP (with the drivers from Nvidia). The EXACT hardware while
running Linux will crash within minutes using the Nvidia provided linux drivers. That leads me to believe that it is not a hardware issue, but an
issue with the Nvidia drivers for Linux... Oh well... Hopefully someone else
that monitors this forum will share their results. I really would like to find an
Nvidia based PCI-Express card that works with the ATI RS480 chipset.

TL_KJ5XF

Hi Lonni,
as a matter of fact the hardware is working pefectly under windows but not at all under linux or bsd - and it's nvidias buggy driver that causes problems. Stop sending users around and start doing some work yourself... at least test variuos combination of hardware to assist those who still want to buy another nvidia card.

All the best,
Wolfgang

I got a 6600 now and it's working for me - anyway as long as the drivers are not GPLed support maybe dropped at any time and you can't to anything about it...

keep smiling

Wolfgang,
Thanks for your feedback. Hopefully some other folks will share
their experiences with video cards that are known to work
under Linux with the ATIRS480/482 chipset....

Regards,
TL

Default Re: Nvidia 6200 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities

Folks,
I went ahead and purchased a 6600 PCI-Express based card
and now I have accelerated video running under Linux. If I
ONLY had known about this incompatibility prior to buying
my 7300GS card, I would have never purchased it....

So.........
USERS BEWARE!!!! IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON RUNNING LINUX WITH A MOTHERBOARD THAT HAS THE ATI RS480/482 CHIPSET AND USING AN NVIDIA BASED VIDEO CARD, THEN YOU BETTER THINK TWICE!!!!!!

The only Nvidia based card that seems to work with RS480 chipset is the 6600 based cards. Hopefully someone will read this and save themselves some time and frustration.

Regards,
TL

The people who reported issues were using either a 6200TC or a 7300GS. Boththe 6200TC and the 7300GS are equipped with TurboCache support. More advanced Nvidia boards (6200 non-TC, 6600, 6800, 7600, ..) don't support TurboCache it is only used on various lowend boards (I think on 7100/7200 cards aswell). As I mentioned I'm using a rd480 with a 6600gt and don't have issues, the same for someone who moved from a 7300GS to a 6600.

I think the issues only appear for cards using TurboCache. I don't know this for sure but based on my result combined with the results of a user who moved to a 6600, it seems to be related.
