Power Mac G5 :: Driver For Quadro FX 4500?


I have a quadro FX 4500 on a Power mac G5 dual 2.3. Does it need driver upgrade? Is not like on a windows enviroment that you need to upgrade driver once an a while? I was on a nVidia site but i couldnīt find any driver for Mac. So that card would never have any kind of upgrade?

Information:
iMac 24" 3.06Mhz 4Gb

Mac Pro :: Quadro FX 4500 / Will It Work
i was wandering if my quadro fx 4500 i have on a Power mac G5 Dual 2.3 will work on a new Mac Pro. The new mac pro is shipped with gForce or with Radeon, donīt you think that the quadro fx 4500 with 512Mb ram is still better then those two new cards? I know that the radeon also has 512Mb but ddr5 ram, but i also know that the professional card from Ati are the Fireīs.

Mac Pro :: Quadro FX 4500 X2 Is Not Working?
I just got a PNY Quadro FX 4500 x2. I know some people has talked about Quadro FX 4500 before but after I got this card, I know it is different from single Quadro FX 4500 because it is two FX 4500 strap together, please refer to the product link here (URL)

I am currently using PC running Mac OSX 10.5.6 (iDeneb) and I think I probably need to flash this card before put into my computer. When I tried to use nvflash (the latest version) to flash the rom, I can back up two roms and it ask me two times when I used "nvflash -b" to back up each rom (rom 0 and 1). However, I can not put the fix rom back to my card. When I use "nvflash -4 -5 -6 -j" command. I know this must has something to do since my card has two roms.........but it is really beyond my knowledge and I don't know how to do it, when I tried to put the fix rom back to my card, it showed the error message below:

Checking for matches between display adapter(s) and image(s)......
Adapter: Quadro FX 4500x2 (10DE, 029F, 10DE, 0357) H:09:SP0 B:0A, PCI, D:00, F:00
Overriding PCI subsystem ID mismatch
Adapter: Quadro FX 4500x2 (10DE, 029F, 10DE, 0357) H:09:SP1 B:0B, PCI, D:00, F:00
Overriding PCI subsystem ID mismatch
No matches found

I think besides the flash rom problem, I also believe that I probably need someone help me to fix my original rom because the fixed rom I downloaded is not for FX 4500 x2, I couldn't find any fixed rom for FX 4500 x2, only FX 4500. Here I attach the original rom I back up from my card and hope some people can help me to look at it. Somehow I also think I might need to change my GFX string or something like that.

Again, this is just the problems I have found from now. After two weeks trying to search everything in the web I am very frustrating because it is hard to find people who use the same card like me. I am just a visual effects animator and I think some parts of flashing this card has gone beyond my knowledge. I know many people and genius here will know what's going on immediately and be able to help me out.

Here is my computer hardware configuration:

Motherboard: TYAN Tempest i5000XT (S2696)
CPU: Intel Xeon e5345 quadcore x 2
RAM: 6G ECC RAM
Sound Card: Sound Blaster Audigy 2 zs
Graphic Card: PNY nVidia FX 4500 x 2 1G

Mac Pro :: Nvidia Quadro Fx 4500 Firmware?
I have a friend who's dell died that has a Quadro FX 4500 in it and he is willing to offer it to me for free. I figure it is better then my 7300 I have now and might hold me over until Apple releases the 8800 for last gen Mac Pros.

The only snag in this is I have to find the Mac Pro firmware so I can put it on this card and hopefully use it.

Power Mac G5 :: Unable To Find Driver
I have two computers. A Dual 1 GHz PowerPC G4 and a 2x2.66 Ghz Dual-Core Intel Mac Pro.

I am expanding drives, upgrading software/OS and did some swapping around, and now have a drive from my Mac Pro with 10.4.11 and all my apps (I had to clone it to a drive that fits to the G4).

Right now, my G4 is running Leopard, and the reason I am swapping the Tiger drive to my G4 is because it runs better together. However, when I try to start up from it using "Startup Disk", I receive the gray screen of death:

Panic (cpu 0 caller 0x002E639C) Unable to find driver for this platform.

I am assuming that since I did not use the original G4 disks to install a driver, I will not be able to use this disk as a startup. Is there a way I can install JUST the driver from my original G4 install cds without over-writing my entire hard drive...I don't want to have to rebuild it, which was my intention all along as the drive is setup exactly as I want it.

PowerPC :: Power Mac G5 - Driver Fan At Constant High Speed
Dual 2ghz Power PC G5 with Leopard 10.5.8Recently had it in for a repair, not with Apple (that expired a longggg time ago) because it would only turn on intermittently. They fixed this problem, citing bad components and also replaced the broken optical drive. However when they gave it back to me it was incredibly loud, they stated that they had to reconnect a fan and that was probably what caused the power problem in the first place. I'm pretty sure though that I had disconnected it unwittingly about a week after the power problem started when I opened it up to change the battery... believing that may be the problem at the time.

Mac Pro :: 2008 Not Compatible To FX 4500?
why my FX 4500 will not work in my new mac pro (2008)? If the new mac pro is pcie v2.0 it should run the fx4500 pcie v1.x just fine right? The 4500 card did come out of my old mac pro (not a G5/non intel base mac) this would be lame as hell if I can't use it on my new mac, as the ATI 2600 is trash with an app Osirix.

Mac Pro :: Finding Quadro FX 5600 Benchmarks?
It was slightly faster than than the GeForce 8800 GT running our six 3D accelerated games.

In another session, we performed a RAM Preview render on 15 Motion 3 templates. The Quadro FX 5600 (and GeForce 8800 GT) were slower than the Radeon HD 2600 XT in 14 out of 15 tests. The Radeon X1900 XT beat the nVidia cards rendering all 15 templates.

Tomorrow we will post results on our Windows Vista 64 tests (Prey, Doom 3, 3DMark06, etc.). As a preview, the Quadro was faster than the Radeon HD 2600 XT but slower than the GeForce 8800 GT running Prey and Doom 3. In the 3DMark06 benchmark the Quadro was faster than the GeForce 8800 GT.

Mac Pro :: Radeon 5870 Versus Quadro 4000
As I am waiting for Bare feats to have fun with the Quadro, some preliminary thoughts might be fun to think about.

- The Quadro 4000 is supported on the Mac Pro '08, the Radeon 5870 is not.

- X-Plane 9: the Radeon 5870 is not faster than the 4870 in the '08 Mac Pro. Maybe the Quadro 4000 will be faster?

- 2 GB VRAM on the Quadro... any chance gaming will benefit?

- Usually the "Pro-3D" card loses to good consumer 3D cards in gaming. Will this be true this time too?

Mac Pro :: Trying To Install NVIDIA Driver But Systems Says"No Driver Update Needed For This System"?
We are trying to install/update to the NVIDIA 270.00.00f06 driver for the PNY Quadro FX4800 for Mac on our MacPro 3,1 with OSX 10.7.4. The system tells us "No Driver Update Needed for this System", and will not allow driver to be installed. Can anyone advise if the current driver is automatically installed or provided by Apple Updates. If not can you provide proper instructions on how to properly update the driver. Also how can we confirm what driver version is currently installed.

Hardware :: Samsung SCX-4500 Scan To PC Does Not Work
Finally took the plunge and switched from PC to the 24" IMac and couldn't be happier except. I bought the Samsung SCX-4500 laser printer/scanner (you know the pretty shiny black one) and when i click the scan to pc button, it doesn't scan anything. I know its not the printer because I had it hooked up to my PC and it scanned no problem. So it must be something with the IMac. I have installed the drivers for scanning too.

Hardware :: Samsung SCX-4500 Scan Over Airport Extreme?
I just bought a 24" Alu Mac, a Samsung SCX 4500 scanner/printer, and and Airport Extreme Basesation. (This is my first Mac ever.) Currently the printer is connected directly to my iMac via a USB cable. I had no trouble getting the print functionality to work, and only minor trouble getting the scanning to work. Now I want to break the working set up I have. Smart, huh?

I would like to plug the Samsung SCX 4500 into my Airport Extreme base station. My understanding is that once I do that, the print function will still work, but the scanning functions will not. Below are excerpts from a chat I had online with an "Apple Expert" before I bought the SCX 4500. The expert with which I was speaking explained there is no supported way to enable the scan function through the Airport Extreme but there was an unsupported way.

Unfortunately he could not tell me the unsupported way, but suggested that I search on "CUPS, Scan, Airport Extreme". See below if you are interested in the exact conversation.

I have done some searching but have yet to find anything that I could really understand, keep in mind I am new to Mac. Has anyone successfully hooked their Samsung SCX 4500 (or some other all-in-one) to the USB port in their AirPort Extreme and got both the scanning and printing to work?
