    With all due respect to XP , I just don't understand why would anyone need to use 1000 series cards in combination with XP. There are simply no games that would run on XP that require powerful GPUs at all. I think even GTX780 is way over the roof . My advice would be purchasing a used GTX680 and be done with it ! There are really good drivers for that card available for windows XP (prob. free).

    Very nice drivers indeed. And sane advise.

    Something else worth mentioning, newer XP drivers have some regressions when it comes to proper monitor detection, see this thread on VOGONS for details.

    Yes.  However XPs monitor detection was never one its strong points, often a manual resolution / refresh rate had to be manually added through the NVIDIA control panel and then the screen scaling wouldn't work properly either, especially at higher resolutions, leaving the text unreadable or windows that you could enevr get to the OK button. PnP monitors actually made this worse in some cases, locking the screen into a high res. interlacing mode that flickered like hell.  I hate Windows 10, it's terrible, XP also had its crazy moments. 

    Myself, I'm having some "artifact" problems with 1650 (studio drivers) on displayport running 4k on a LG monitor, WIN 10 PRO x64 20H2 - I'd love to find a solution to that ;)

    Then why are you posting here? Move along! This is XP subforum, not W10!

    This is ridiculous statement. Games like Metro 2033 or Metro Last Light would run great on GTX 980Ti, for example. And Between first Metro and 980Ti is more than 5 years, in which XP era was ended.

    From this post it seems that you even don't know that all Maxwell videocards, including  980Ti and Titan X, work with XP cause Nvidia drivers support them until summer 2016. You might be surprised bye posts of bluebolt in XP64 subforum here, warning SSD, CPU and GPU that running fine on XP64 may shell-shock you.

    I also check all your 5 posts on this forum in first 4 you talking about running different low-end videocards on XP, in your last post your argue with me. I really annoyed by your last 2 posts, especially including with this quote:

    It is obviously from this post of yours that you still do not fully understand that 750 not "outperfoming" 10XX on XP, But 10XX just run in VGA compatibility mode - without 3D and, probably, 2D acceleration. Please, stop giving other people advises and opinions without, at least partially, understanding the problem.

    Now finally i wanna explain why i write my first post here. You see, i read articles last years about how very skilled programmers make old games work better by write a lot of code, or finish never finished and never released games for old consoles, or write new games for consoles etc. A lot of this stuff is on reddit retrodev. One guy create a lot of patches for NFS3 by himself and wrote tonshit of code for that. This is impressive. So i ask myself - if some guys for free write A LOT of hi-skill code for abandoned games and platforms, maybe somebody in the world can examine both 368 drivers and say could it possible, with relatively low effort, adapt XP 368 to Pascal.

    Firstly, you are very rude and there is no reason to be so. Secondly, I as many most from my experience. If you bothered to research who people are then you would know that when I am talking about running software on XP that I am unlikely to be talking about games.  There are, in fact other and better reasons why users may wish to continue with XP other than waste their lives playing old games.  Thirdly, I have managed to get a 1030 running on XP,  we do happen to know when a card is only running compatibility mode.  It was rubbish, probably not helped because 10xx cards are rubbish.  Fourthly, have you seen the cost of a second-hand GTX980ti, you can get new 1660s cheaper. Why would you want to do that now, this post was started more than 5 years ago when 10xx card actually mattered. If you want to grasp my interestest, tell me that you got a 16xx or 20xx running on XP.  I am sure there are many users reading these post thinking "Could I do it, I mean get 10xx working on XP" and the answer is yes, and somebody already probably did.  Was it any good?  Was it good enough to justify building an installer package etc etc , Am I going to get paid ? Is it worth it when I can get something good for a fraction of the read-world cost. Read what people have written here, they are clever guys.  But finally, don't be rude.  That is never going to get you the answers you want.

    If you use Pascal (10xx) videocard on windows XP with successfully modded drivers you will get no 3D-perfomance. I just want to clarify this to people who will read it in the future:  NO 3D Perfomance.

    This is cause THERE IS NO PASCAL DRIVER FOR WINDOWS XP that is capable to do 3D-perfomance. Because Nvidia did not create that driver.

    However i want to say something unusual. Since there is interest for so many people for XP Pascal Driver maybe some measures can be done?

    368.81 for XP does not support Pascal. However 368.81 for more modern Windows system support Pascal videocards. So MAYBE it is possible for experienced programmers to modify XP version, using Win7 version of a driver as donor? Like yea, i know it's hi-tech stuff. But there is programmers that work on wine, reactOS etc. Could they be attracted or hired through crowdfunding? Maybe the size of a work not so big? I know it sounds crazy, but who knows, right?

    Honestly I don't see the point.  NVIDIA are so far on from 10 series now and even the lowest machines have 16xx or above.  Most graphics cards above 7 or 8 series do work much better on Windows 10 (even on older MBs) although it does take a while ploughing through various driver versions and combinations.  Of course, if the graphics chipset is newer than XP era drivers then it is unlikely to give any performance / quality advantage as the game or software was never made or tested on it.  NVIDIA spends not its time in driver production but in condition testing, the performance "devil" is in the very fine detail.  The highest performance graphics card I found to work with XP 32ps3 & x64 was 780ti with a ASUS Z77-V motherboard and an i7 or Xeon depending on the software's multi-threading capability.  Replacing the boot drive with an SSD (HyperX fury or Samsung EVO) made far more difference than any changes I made to GPU or configuration.  If you use Ghost to transfer the data, then you don't even have to reinstall anything.

    Small clarification (on the NVidia iCafe Drivers 368.81 and 368.91 for XP)

    The XP-64bit driver may (or may not) support some 10x0, but they are not listed in the files. @Burd claims success with inf-modding.

    The XP-32bit definitely does NOT. Inf-modding was tried by several users, to no avail. Thanks to @Dibya for pointing out...


    I absolutely agree.  In most of my experiments the installation can be made to run, but after reboot the driver doesn't load.  Also, where I did get 10x to actually load they were either extremely unreliable or were easily out-performed by older fully compatible cards.  For my own system I went for a Palit GTX 750 ti which has proved to work very well and infact much better than some 10x cards I tested.

  6. Hello and thanks again.  Yes, ASUS make a GT730 2GB DDR5, although I don't think that my CPU clock can make best use of the DDR5.  The PC is in a recording studio enviroment and it is any important that nothing causes too much latency or else you get gitter or lag on play back - I think this is why a lot of the stuff was never transisioned to later Windows versions.

    I do not think that you will be able to get it working properly in XP.

    If you're looking in buying new, your only options really are GT 730, 710 and 210. Second hand would be a better bet. I got a GTX 970 for just 90 euros last year and it has been doing a flawless job in both XP x64 and x32 ever since.

    Thanks for that.  I have a GT 430 1G DDR3, do you think that a GT730 2GB DDR5 would offer much of an improvement in XP x32 SP3 (Card must be silent, no fans).  I tried a GT 710, which was fine in XP but was constantly crashing in Windows 7.  I'm between a rock and a hard-place, I have essential hardware that won't work on newer motherboards and software that has long since been discontinued.  I currently use a dual boot system XP x32 SP3 & Windows 7 on a GIGABYTE GA-H55M-D2 motherboard.

  8. Hi has anybody ever managed to get GEFORCE 10xx series working on XP (32 bit, SP3)

    I got a Gigabyte GT 1030 silent 2GB (Hardware ID: 1D01) works great on 7 but can't get a peep out of it on XP.

    I downloaded the iCafe driver and edited the inf.  Tried all the section modes.  Installer works perfectly, but after reboot Hardware manager says "Device cannot start"

    It is presumed that it doesn't work because this one needs the NVLDDMKM.SYS driver.

    Failing that I'll send it back, shame tho.  What should I change it for that'll work well with 7 x64 and XP x32.  Should have 2Gb DDR5 and be fanless.  Full Profile is fine.  Nice and fast for Hungry Windows Apps.
