Engineers from Darkcrow test lab decided to to dot the "i´s" and cross the "t´s" to show the exact difference between graphics cards on NV36GL (Quadro FX 1100) and NV36 (GeForce FX 5700).
GeForce FX 5700 Ultra
Quadro FX 1100
As you can see on these photos, the obvious difference is in resistors surface mounting. Currently the researchers work on methods to transform one card into another, including path resoldering, BIOS patching and PCB recircuiting. So, perhaps, such hardware changes will enable them to obtain a middle-level professional workstation card (Quadro FX 1100) made using the 0.13µm process from a simpler desktop solution.
At the moment of announcement of this GPU we already mentioned that such a novelty unusual for Quadro FX series based on desktop NV36 GeForce FX 5700 implying the following:
