Sapphine X800GTO AGP "Blue" PCB

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I try to get an agp card for my current system. Of course i want to mob n overclock it My target is X800GTO or X850pro that be able to unlock to 16 pipeline n good for overclocking.
I found the Sapphine X800GTO with "Blue" pcb in newegg. The review said its almost 100% unlockable or it came with 16 pipeline. Is that true? I read the article from techpowerup http://www.techpowerup.com/printarticle.php?id=127 it only happen on PCIe GTO2. No matter R430 or R480, is it still can be unlocked to 16 pipeline? Can X800GTO be overclocked to 500 core or more? I dont want to stuck at 12 pipeline after went thru all the trouble.
There is high risk getting not unlockable X850 pro even its a VIVO version. Correct me if i m wrong. I placed an order for ATI X850 pro in newegg 2 days ago, but its on back order, all my credit refunded. I doubt newegg wil got any more stock for this. At the same price the X800GTO comes into my choose.
I need all of ur advice n recommendation. If u used to/still own the unlockable X800GTO or X850 pro, pls give me a hand here. Even u never own one, ur advice will be great help too. I hope this last agp upgrade can be an happy ending.

The X850 Pro is a guaranted R481 core so 500mhz core and good overclocking, chance at unlocking.

The Blue PCB GTO is an R430 definetly, so it will unlock to 16 pipelines but the cores can hardly overclock at all, 450mhz if your lucky.

Red GTO could be any of the cores.
