    Hi,

    I bought two maxwell cards, clevo 980m and clevo 970m. they had defective mosfets which i replaced and the cards are working again. both are g-sync cards.
    because of that i could not install a driver in windows for testing, but to my surprise they work perfect in Xubuntu 18.04.

    everything works, even brightness control - it seems the nvidia linux driver doesn't seem to care about hardware id and bios restrictions.

    can someone explain why and if it is possible to mod a driver for windows to make these cards work in non g-sync machines?

    there is no gsync function, but full 3d capabilities and hardware acceleration. I'm using stock xmg bios and the cards are not modified either.

    Thank you
