Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

* WalrusIRC

You need to have 5 posts and not be part of restricted usergroups in order to use the WalrusIRC embedded shoutbox. However, you can also access our IRC channel called #CodeWalrus via EFnet.

I was looking for a video card today, looks like the recommended one is a Quadro M4000 for around C$1200, which is pretty much equivalent to a GTX 970. The only difference is whether some 3D acceleration thing is enabled in the driver (Quadro is, GeForce is not) which is required for some Autodesk programs, thing that could be soft modded, probably. Now I'm wondering if it would be more efficient to buy a GTX 1070 or 1080 instead and soft mod it into a Quadro P4000 or P5000. You guys know about those soft mods?
