    Strange.

    Taking the P3200 first as it makes more sense.
    VEN_10DE&DEV_1BA1&SUBSYS_08311028
    10DE = NVIDIA
    1BA1 = GeForce 1070 mobile
    0831 = Precision 7530
    1028 = Dell

    The identifier for the Quadro P3200 is 1BBB. I have no idea why it is showing incorrectly as a GeForce 1070. If you do this find-and-replace in the INF file, maybe it will work.
    VEN_10DE&DEV_1BBB&SUBSYS_08311028 => VEN_10DE&DEV_1BA1&SUBSYS_08311028

    Next, the Quadro P4200. This one is totally whacked...
    VEN_10DE&DEV_1BA1&SUBSYS_95E11558
    10DE = NVIDIA
    1BA1 = GeForce 1070 mobile
    95E1 = ?? (Some Clevo mobile workstation)
    1558 = Clevo

    95E1 and 1558 show up only in nvcvwi.inf, which is the Clevo stuff. All of the Dell stuff is in nvdmwi.inf. The closest match that I see is PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1BB9&SUBSYS_95E11558, which shows as Quadro P4200 with Max-Q.
    Anyway, if you do this then maybe it will work.
    VEN_10DE&DEV_1BB9&SUBSYS_08321028 => VEN_10DE&DEV_1BA1&SUBSYS_95E11558


    Rather confused why they showed up this way. I've never heard of the hardware ID values being picked up incorrectly. Maybe these cards were flashed with a GeForce 1070 vBIOS? Can you get the vBIOS version from GPU-Z?

    If @jpnankervis purchased his DGFFs not from Dell, this might very well have been the case, and these shadier places might even have recommended that the user install an appropriately modified driver, as you suggested.

    The thing I'm curious about is how the cards would perform with the GeForce GTX 1070 vBIOSes (if the driver mod is successful), and how the vBIOSes were loaded into the cards in the first place, without bricking said cards.

    Hello,

    Are any of these still available or they are all sold?

    Thanks!
