do NOT flash 8800GTS to 9800GTX

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i just wanted to make sure no one here tries this, because it doesn't work. they have the same specs, so you might think it would work, but it doesn't.

Good to know.

Although they both only appear to have differing clock speeds, the G92 GPU is a later revision than those found on 8800GT and 8800GTS cards. Flashing is not recommended, unless you're flashing with another 9800GTX BIOS.

That poor, poor 8800. If it were my card I'd never abuse it so terribly.

The main problem I believe with flashing the 8800GTS to a 9800GTX is the memory timings.

That would do it.
The GTX uses better ram (Samsung I think).
It's rated at 2200 or 2400, something like that.
GTS is rated at 2000mhz.

Yeah, should have been pretty obvious that trying to use settings for 0.8ns samsung on 1.0ns qimonda was not going to work well.
