its says 16 shaders but if you look in the tunner you will see its still disabled in mine,,!
post #34 of 130
Anyone know what kind of boost you would get unlocking all the disabled pipelines of the GTS to match the GTX count (or as close to possible)? I don't have mine in yet and I am interested in this...

Something is happening considering there is three guys on this forum that all report the same results. It should be noted that these are AGP version of the card. I 100% agree that rivatuner reports them as locked but in the past day or two I have been able to turn up the video settings in all my games. Seriously I can't explain this but I don't care too, those pipe may still be locked but my games game sure do look better now and play the same lol.

well as for the sli... i cant tell u a 100% perfect answer but my guess is that it would work out better because its a total of 8 extra pp

the agp, i have no idea is that matters alot but i know pci-e works for me at least... it might be just the xfx 7600 card i have no idea i just know every game now runs smoother than before and what doesn't make any sense what so ever is that the benchmarks show no increase really but everything is running smoother that to me MAKES NO SENSE at all i mean zero.

as for explanation they might say locked, but it runs smoother, faster , easier and benchmarks show no difference but that might be because the card only reads that there is 12pp active on the card but there really is 16 active meaning that it is letting the "bottlenecked graphics" run smoother because its setting it or cap to run at 12pp but its running on 16pp so it runs the 12pp cap faster thats my only guess as to what the benchmarking thing is thats all other than that i got nothing i just now what i stated up top earlier

Well this is interesting nonetheless. I hope I can do this with my 8800GTS when it comes in. Anyone owning an 8800 if you try this please post the results, if not then I will post when my system arrives.
