D30 video card

2019-06-10, 10:41 AM

Hello  Smiley Happyi would like to thank you again for your big help while replacing our processors. our work station 4229-16G ; previously we have updated our processors to 2x  E5-2690 2.90GHz 20M 8GT/s  also fan sinks to 150w . 

 

we  have a new update coming , planning to replace our video card with a new ouadro  p 4000 or quadro rtx4000 .

Can we use one of these cards in our system?  possibly rtx 4000 will be our first choice.

 

thank you ,

We don't claim support for the new Quadro P-series (P4000) or the new Quadro RTX series (RTX 4000) cards in the D30 platform.

Even though we don't technically claim support for these newer GPU's in the D30 platform, these GPU's may work OK in the D30. We can certainly spot check this in the lab.

What OS version are you using in your workstations?

As was stated, we do not officially support this, but we installed Win 10 Pro, then installed an RTX 4000 with the latest drivers from Nvidia's website and there were no issues.

 

If you would like we could do the same for the P4000.

Hello , thank you for the fast response, 

 

we are using windows 7 professional.

 

Can we install any quadro rtx 4000 card ? our supplier is suggesting  ''4X60V09656'' long extender card. But we need to wait 4-6 weeks for this card to be delivered and installed.We are working in a project and urgently we need more powerfull graphic card.

Does it needs to be ''long extender '' 

Can we just  buy and install any rtx 4000 card? 

This card is available now. ,  PNY https://www.pny.com/nvidia-quadro-rtx-4000

I'll double check the OS installation, but the Win 7 64bit drivers are on the Nvidia site so I imagine it will be the same results. Of course we recommend using the Lenovo PN for full warranty support and compatibility, but another card should work. The extender is to help fully secure the card into the system, but if the system will not be shipped or moved from its current location it should not be a problem.

Correction, the D30 does not need the extender to secure the card, it will actually need to be removed to fit properly. Again, the alternate card you found should not be an issue.

Thank you very much again,

 

VCQRTX4000-PB PNY

 

 if extender is not needed, can we just buy and install this card to our system?

 We have PNY Quadro K5000 on the board , what i understand simply    replacing old card  with the new  one and installing latest drivers  will be all.

 

Is that  simple?

It should be that simple, but on older systems that have been running for a while this may not always be the case. Also, in order to help minimize any potential issues you can actually uninstall the drivers before removing your existing card. Then install the new card and after boot up, install the latest drivers. During the driver installation select Custom installation over Express and then check the box for a "Clean Installation". These steps should help keep possible issues to a minimum.

 

Also, we were able to install the RTX 4000 onto a Windows 7 64bit installation without any issues.

Re: D30 video card

Just wanted to add some comments on D30 GPU support because there is a bit of history here.

 

Longer cards (such as the M/P/RTX4000 class GPU) are typically used with an extender bracket in D30 to help retain them.  The chassis design is to use the card guide at the front of the system to engage the extender bracket, and then that assembly works in conjunction with the large swing arm to retain the GPU properly.  

 

D30 extender bracket support actually changed over its lifetime.  Early in D30's lifecycle, we were supporting what was known as the "short" extender bracket.  However, at some point the front fan/card guide assembly design was changed from a single piece to a 2 piece design.  This 2 piece design included a piece that could be removed in order to support the (more common) "long" extender bracket.  

 

So if your D30 has the 2 piece front fan design, it should be capable of supporting the short or long extender brackets (though not both at the same time).  If it has the single piece front fan design, then it is limited to using the short bracket only.

 

With all of that, the earlier comments still apply.  If you're upgrading a deployed/installed system that will not be shipped or moved around, then the extender bracket is not really necessary.  If you don't use the extender, we recommend temprorarily removing the GPU prior to any sort of shipping/system relocation to avoid damaging the motherboard during transport.
