Which nVidia card can run with 410/418 drivers

Recommended Posts

Well you guys have convinced me! I've ordered the Zotac from Lambda Tech - cheers to Ghozer and zach. :thumbsup:

You should be covered with that card.

 

I just bought a Zotac 1050Ti Low Profile for my Windows/Mac OS machine. You know when you should look (or read) before you leap? Mojave doesn't have a 10 series driver! Oh well, it won't go to waste and has decent performance for a little card. It might become a Windows/Linux machine until better driver times on the mac OS 😂

You'll be lucky to get Linux working on the Mac unless it's a few years old. The latest Macs are designed to run on nothing but MacOS! :lol:

It's the other way round... standard PC hardware running mac OS. It's my first run on Mojave so plenty of time to try things.

:blush: Like ordering a sound card with the correct chipset for GNU/Linux - but forgot to look at the form factor!!!

It's all good for now, had to install macOS High Sierra until Apple & Nvidia sort out their issues.

 

Did the Zotac card come? And if it did, everything ok?

It came but disappointed that in VGA mode it does not support 1920 x 1080 like the GT620 did - it will only show (in GNU/Linux) under VGA something like 1240 x 720. But principally I wanted it for the next release of Zorin which requires minimum VGA drivers (for nvidia) of 410 which is built into the .iso to bring the 410 drivers - I have installed 418.xx on Feren OS and it appears to be OK. Thanks for the find. I'm now waiting on a C-media PCIe card from ThinkPenguin:

I'm not sure how it works in Linux but sometimes you have to add custom resolutions. Is the monitor/TV full 1080p?

 

I can't remember the last time I bought an audio card. Having said that, I'm the person that bought a 5.1 sound system and the my daughter pointed out... "why did you buy that dad? you're deaf in one ear!" 😂

 

Kids!!!

Hi,  Yes the TV is full 1080/1080i - no issue in HDMI mode but would have been nice to get resolution in VGA mode - sure in old Zorin 12 I got that resolution as I had Monitor and separate speakers prior to this set up which is what I want to get back to at some stage.

.... You can still use separate? don't HAVE to use the HDMI Audio?
Just, disable HDMI audio or simply don't use it...?
