Simple INF Modification Enables 4-Way SLI on GeForce GTX 780 - Titan Records In Sight?

In a video posted on his YouTube channel, Brazilian-Japanese performance tweaker Faster shows how to work around the 4-Way SLI limitation for the GeForce GTX 780 imposed by Nvidia. The video is in Portuguese so unless you're fluent in that language, you will have to rely on the video instructions to get 4-Way running. From the looks of it, the newer drivers featuring support for the GeForce GTX 780 cards also include a couple of lines preventing it from running 4-Way SLI. The older drivers have no such limitation, but also don't officially support the GTX 780. By simply using a modified nv_disp.inf, you can add the support and enjoy 4-Way SLI. The process is actually quite simple:

  • 1) Download the GeForce 320.00 BETA driver from Nvidia
  • 2) Extract the driver content using WinRAR
  • 3) Replace the original nv_disp.inf with a modified one, which you can download here (click)
  • 4) Go back in the extracted driver folder and start the installation setup
  • 5) Enjoy your GTX 780 4-Way SLI!

All credit goes to Faster from the Fusion-OC team. You can see his routine in the video below. Check out his forum thread here and here (Portuguese). With 4-Way SLI enabled on the GeForce GTX 780, Faster managed to score a solid 12,867 in Fire Strike Extreme.

This is amaaazing!

Nice :) Congratz !!

Israel Defoler says:

Well done!
But this means that you can only use older drivers, without the fixes nvidia put on newer ones, or can you also bypass the restrictions on newer drivers as well?

United States skyn3t says:

Yup. he faked to be someone else and stole my edited files.. Now his got all the credit. That's BS. But what I can do now. But hey thibg won't end here. We all know that.

skyn3t he never said he edited it. He was the first one to run 4-way sli on GTX 780, period. I checked your thread, you didn't. He did it. You never said the files would make the VGA run in 4-way, in the EVGA forum you even showed to be surprised.
About you saying that he scam ppl... you just don't take sides on something you don't know. That guy bought a vga from him and it didn't work, so instead of contacting him back, he started a thread on a forum before. He also disassembled the VGA heatsink, invalidating the warranty.

Congrats Faster, we all cheers for you at OC-Fusion forum.

United States icebob says:

how come I'm not surprise that another soap opera came from fake boobs country?

United States skyn3t says:

really?

That's not what the Tile at GV, Fusion forum and Hwbot says!

He is the first one to run 4-way sli on GTX 780 " you are right".

Yes I never said my files would make the GTX 780 to run 4-way sli but I Made "edited" the files" he didn't do it with his crew!

Yes I showed at EVGA forum because that's the first place I was pointed to check what happend with the files I made "edited".

Yes he scam ppl and you know it like everyone else and he is a liar.Anyone that sells are subject to make mistakes, this is one mistake he made!

You know what common sense is?
when you find an idea and it worked for you some how. when you respect and have respect you say "I did it, but that guy with his idea made it work" you just don't steal the idea and spread to the world that you made it
"edited" like he did on his Forum, @ GameVicio. If you look at my Tread @ OCN [Official] NVIDIA GTX 780 Owner's Club Front page , each link there with guides' how to was credit to the person who made it. Silence won't take you anywhere.
So please don't try to defend someone who you don't know or who you think you know without proof. Because I have proof when I made those files. Which the files still at my thread to who want to download it free of charges and like all my vbios unlocked on almost each GTX 780 brand.
you not talking with any dummy here bro. I know what I'm doing I really do.

I just want to make a note in one thing.

Faster is a bench guy I do respect that. but I do not respect what he did. All the info I try to pass to him before this happened.I was ignored and even deleted my account on his forum. Do you want to explain it? Do you have any idea how to explain it? Guess what you don't! so chill out bro.

This is the date when I Edited that file.

By the way I'm a Brazilian too.
Eu tambem sou Brasileiro :)
just sometimes I feel shame to be one.
As vezes me sinto vergonha de ser brasileiro.
Because of this.
Por cause disso.

We should be united but are not and never will.
sad but it is true.

How come I am not surprise that another nationalist comment came from the alleged free country. No, wait...

And everybody loves boobs, fakes or not.

United States skyn3t says:

Faster, looks like you just admitted it right?

I'm just open your eyes, because you may need this in the future. ;) like I said above I do respect you as a bench guy, but not as person that I thought you was. I'm just disappointment. I can sleep well every night. do you?

I'm done here. no waste my time anymore.
I wish the best for you.
Good lucky.

Belgium Massman says:

A lot of drama for something that is actually quite simple. - Skyn3t edits an INF to support GTX780 - Faster runs uses it to run 4-Way SLI In the end, this is a very simple story of taking and giving credit on the internet. Faster could've obviously given credit to the person who originally modified the .INF file, which appears to be Skyn3t. On the other hand, discovering this enables 4-Way SLI is something Faster can take credit for as Skyn3t did not suggest this feature to become unlocked. Personally, I do not care for all this drama. And even less for all the stupid (yes, stupid!) provoking replies. So yeah, kudos to Skyn3t for the edit, kudos to Faster for finding out it enables 4Way SLI.

United States skyn3t says:

Thank you bro.

Damn Brazilians... Always wanting the credit with a non sense reason...

Keep talking bullshit here brah, everyone can edit this Info archive, you are not the only one in this world...
That's why I hate people in my country... Always want to take some advantage for something that they never did...

You are mad cuz bad... F*cking frustrated brazilian..

Hey man!!!
What do you think about to talk (or to show) something good about overclocking... instead a comment like this?
Just a tip

That's the line you have to follow mate...
And if you don't want to "bunnyextraction", maybe is better don't keep comments like this.... cuz that's really a bunnyextraction...
You will not help this way... and talking badmouth about your people... further you know there are good and bad people in every single country.


Ronaldo, you know that is how it works here in Brazil...
