9800 GT bios flash to 9800 GTX

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I was thinking today, and would it be possible to flash a GeForce 9800 GT to a GeForce 9800 GTX ?

I mean, they have the same core, same 256 bit bus, theoretically with the 9800 GTX bios it would just unlock the 9800 GT's G92 core to allow use of all 128 SP's right?


And another thing, would (if I could) I be able to do this without a floppy drive?

I'm unsure if its 100% possible... but you can do it directly from windows actually... through cmd... but Id suggest just backing up your cards BIOS throwing it in nibitor, changing the clocks as you want, and then flashing it to the new BIOS

I don't think it will work because difference in the amount of stream processors and they are two different cards. But I could be wrong and I want to see how this goes.

Wow nVidia is smart if tey took of the extra SP's hm, well there goes that Idea, any other way I could maybe make my card a little faster? I have overclocked it to 700/1750/900 but if I raise my memory clock much, it starts having driver crashes, my old card did this too, but not nearly as bad, and it ran alot hotter too. I wish I had a 680i and I would just get 2 9800 GT's and do SLi

I could try, but if it could brick my card, I sorta dot want to try, if there is ANY possibility that the SP's are there (just disabled) then I think it could work, but, then again I have never flashed a new card from the 8/9/200 series, but I flashed a FX 5200 to a FX 5500 back in the day lol

Very big difference in RAM speed (not to mention modules) plus the core is laser cut, so no +16 shaders.

Not possible at all (unless you just flashed to a BIOS that was called "9800GTX" and basically just renamed the card.)
