    linus is a noob... with money. Lets be honest for a sec, you can do a lot of things with money and current BASIC scaling methods but please do your BASIC research on quadro cards and Xeon processors. They aren't meant for gaming in the first place. This is why maybe you should actually watch "Gamers Nexus" lol

    Quadro cards use different math algorithm. It is focused for 3D modeling like AutoCAD 🤔.
    You have an overpowered graphic setup but for AutoCAD, not for gaming 😁.
    Gaming uses mostly triangles to make all shapes and 3D modeling use many geometrical forms other from triangles. The final result was totally expected. Your PC is working fine, but not for gaming.

    This is way beyond me however, I think you need to mod the bios and take elements from each of the chip-sets that support that series of processors, I'm sure it could be done - although time and effort - would be crazy and what will you gain from it? 7x16 mobo that was costume made to be optimized for gpu's would be crazy...

    Did you turn off vertical sync in the Nvidia Control Panel 3D settings? That's HOW a quadro card is turned ON. Too late now, huh? Every computer I have ever seen that ran a quadro, had vertical sync ON in their settings. Not a single person was seeing the performance possible because they didn't know there is an ON switch. Sure, they ran fast and were reliable, but that one check box made all the difference. HERE is what you paid for. lol They just didn't know. None of them. So, it may apply here too.

  • David Wishengrad

    That was funny. I had a personal setup, Tyan Tiger 1834, dual P3 and an Elsa Gloria II quadro and top of the line scsi. It was the very first multi processor board that worked with AGP. The board didn't work with the vid card, but I sent the Gloria II to Tyan and they sent me a new revised board that did. Then came the IRQ sharing under windows 2000. Wow, what nightmare configuring hardware to share those interrupts. In the end I have opted for reliability ever since. Cute vid though. Thank you.

IT WOULD'VE BEEN AWESOME IM TELLING YOU IT WOULD.... It would.. it would.....😢"
    The universe is like "Yes it would've been awesome.... THATS WHY YOU CANT HAVE IT!!!" the universe doesn't, simply not care about your feelings... Its got to meet a quota that your feelings never be satisfied.... Itswut hold da OOONIVERS TO'GED'A 🤣

    ONe day AI will look back and think "So this is wut you made us for? Highest FPS ever" then the promptly gave us machines capable of playing at the highest possible FPS ever and we all proceeded to seizure death. World peace achieved "Itsoooo Beautiiiiifulllll!!!"😂
