4850 unlock?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if I can unlock this card?
If so, what bios? I'm picking up a barely used 5870 (which I would line to squeeze done performance out of, any suggestions welcome) so the 4850 is a total play thing now.

I would love to absolutely max this cards potential. No regrets.

possibly, the option would be in CCC (catalyst control center) under the performance tab.

No unlock of shaders is available.

 

 

 

Volt mods, however, there are!

oh, okay well they mean just bridge those contacts and/or remove the bridge between two? Seems risky.. What would be safer, pencil vs. capacitor?

they give zero instruction...

.-. it wouldn't really matter xD

It means, to combine two either "pinouts" or contact points

example

[o] [o] - two contact points

[o=o] bridged contact points ( = is the bridge )
the bridge consists of melted silver/lead that you use the pencil solder to melt.

or you could solder wire to the contact points and use that as a bridge... it works the same way.

+ rep

This helps. So in the diagram showing the pencil pointed at an existing bridge they imply removing it.
Doesn't seem hard. I don't know if my soldering iron is a "pencil" but I've got multiple tips. So you pick one mid, either adding solder, removing it or adding a cap. But not more than one mod at a time.

are those 100k ohm capacitors or resisters?
