Flash GTX470 to GTX560 TI 448, anyone tried it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
It came up in another thread and now I'm very curious. The cards are identical hardware-wise so it should work, but has anyone tried it?


Also, if someone sees this and gives it a shot I'm not responsible if it bricks your card.

Well, it was more a question of running them in SLi.

I'd think you're more likely to brick it than not. Even though the physical specs are the same, GF110 has some fundamental differences to GF100 particularly relating to their texture units.

I remember reading a very detailed article about it back in the day, I'll try to find the link.
