[ VC ] NVIDIA Announces GeForce GTX 760, Graphics Cards Roundup - Page 4

post #31 of 36
I just read somewhere that it may be possible to unlock the missing parts of the card to make it a 670 if nVidia haven't removed them. Is that even possible?

Nope I don't think so.

haha this comes up with every new card release, just because it used to be possible. They disable them with lasers these days unfortunately.

It used to be possible? Ha amazing. Why would they destroy part of a card if it doesn't cost extra money to build it in the more powerful state? Just to make sure you spend more if you want a more powerful card? I thought that the cards get binned and some chips have everything functioning and other parts that don't work and they get sold as lower tier cards.. Somebody fill me in here.

Nvidia sent me an e-mail about the 760. The subject line reads: "GeForce GTX 670: The New Weapon of Choice"

...Fail...

Card is a heck of a value though thumb.gif

Its nice to see nVidia thriving even though it still lags behind with its crippled compute units. frown.gif

At least the crippling of compute units gave three improvements:
- lower power consumption
- less heat
- not a "Fermi time bomb"
