  • Gigabyte 9800GTX+ & Edius 4.61 - 5.01

    There have been many reports of the latest nVidia drivers not working (black screen or worse bsod) for the Gigabyte GV-N98XPZL-1GH and recently this was indeed an issue for most.

    I had some free time on my hand and decided to dig a bit deeper in to this problem as I was still running on the older drivers that came with the card.

    To make a long story short(er) it now works, with the latest nVidia drivers.

    My card came supplied with bios version F10, and that actually was the culprit, I downloaded the latest bios version F12 and flashed the bios with Gigabyte latest flash utility.

    This went well so after a reboot in safe mode, uninstalled the old drivers, rebooted in normal mode, installed the latest drivers ver. 181.20, rebooted again and it works great, no issues whatsoever.

    I have tested the new drivers with Edius 4.61 on both my systems (see below) and also Edius 5.01, running now side by side (not at the same time but in the same XP SP3 installation) and that also runs fine, no overlay or GPU effects problem.

    I thought I just inform the forum users who have been requesting on GPU card advise and were afraid to try the much cheaper Gigabyte version (or other manufacturers) and did not want to purchase the Original nVidia product, due to the much higher price.

    Because the card runs so smooth my Quadro FX card in my second system has also been replaced with the much cheaper Gigabyte GV-N98XPZL-1GH, it surely out performs it by a mile, most likely due to the 4x bigger Ram.

    Hope this helps some to make an easier choice to have some ease of mind what will work with Edius 5.01 and the relation to GPU effects.

    Unfortunately, it still occupies 2 physical slots :-(.

      Yep it does, but with some time on your hands you could modify the cooler as with the new Bios F12 is runs very cool in my system :)

        So - you are telling me I can remove the cooler block and make it occupy 1 slot without violating the warranty of the card? :-)

          I never made "that" statement, but nowadays when I look at the low prices of most electronic parts, then close one eye, If I really want / need something badly and it doesn't fit i'll "FIX" it, the hard way.

          If it gets busted in the processes it was not meant to be, mostly when you need a warranty claim you don't get it anyway (the 5 pages of exclusion in the fine print) :)

          I think the card you have now works good enough, not ?

          Edit : if you worry about warranty, I could mod mine then if it still works we could swap cards :) I have 2 so if that one dies I could swap to the original cooler and still claim w......................

          All jokes aside, it would be great if mobo manufacturers would pay a bit more attention to slot positions and what most likely will pose a problem, nowadays card are long, 2 slots wide etc. Even my NX card is very very close to my chip set cooler, also the next slot is very very close due to the double layer buildup of the NX card, it just doesn't make sense.............

            Right, I will take a look and see - before I start reaching for the knife :-).

              mmm, I have an Inno 9800 gt 1gb 2 slot card in my cupboard, I tested it and it ran so hot, it was toasting the HDstorm card, and I mean hot man!

              Back to the 512 8800 which is cool and safer I reckon, come the summer, the 9800 would burst into flames!

                Did you look if there is a new Bios for your GT ?

                edit: to come back to the heat issue, my GTX+ was indeed a hotter card than my previous Quadro, which after the bios flash became mr. cool

                  I am still stuck with Quadro 3500 - no space to spare for two slots card.

                    I just bought a Leadtek 9800 GT card yesterday to replace my old Quadro FX540 :-)

                    Do I need to uninstall the quadro drivers from my XP before installing the new card, or does it not matter?

                    I take it that Edius 5.01 and 3rd prt plugins will find out themselves that i bigger GPU is present?

                    Thanks.

                      So far I have had the best experience to boot up in safe mode, uninstall the driver, change card, boot up, install new driver, reboot, adjust settings to your liking, done ..........

                      Note : Quadro FX cards are using different drivers, so you have to change.

                        Thanks SoundFreak - worked so far for me too this way.

                        Realtime is pretty cool :-)

                        Thanks for your help...
