GPU spoofing of unsupported nvidia graphics card

I have GTX 1650 graphics card in my laptop alongwith intel graphics card. I presently disabled my nvidia graphics card but is there any way to spoof the GPU to a supported GPU like to some AMD GPU so that my graphics card works? I got this idea when I found "PEG0.PEGP" which corresponds to my dedicated graphics card in your Sample.dsl file in @Acidanthera repo. Can someone or some developers please help me with this to make this possible? I am happy to test anything and help with it. AMD gpu can be spoofed into working gpu but if anyone can do the similar thing to Nvidia gpu.

No. No such thing is possible.

 

Plenty was written in the past on the matter but make a good note that, to this day, there simply is no support for any nVidia cards but Kepler in post-High Sierra macOS versions. Do note that:

  • the last nVidia cards supported under macOS are Maxwell and Pascal cards, no subsequent generation is supported.
  • Maxwell and Pascal cards were never natively supported and required the nVidia Web Driver (Maxwell: Yosemite 10.10 to HiSie 10.13; Pascal: Sierra 10.12 to HiSie 10.13).
  • last macOS version for which Web Drivers were made available is High Sierra.

Spoofing could only possibly be considered if drivers existed for that GPU family; that’s what is done with some AMD GPUs and may also have been done in the past for some old nVidia cards (eg: Tesla). But there is no way to get a Turing card supported through Kepler drivers or Web Driver.

 

No hope to be had with any Turing card, no time to waste; they will never be supported.
