"X850 Pro w/ 2.0ns RAM" Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,
Is it possible to unlock all 16 piplines with X850 Pro w/ 2.0ns RAM Samsung?

I encountered other threads stating newer models with 2.0nsRam cannot be fully unlocked.
However, 100% 1.6 models work perfectly.

Can someone please verify this?

Thank you
and Merry Christmas!

You won't find any 2.0 cards that unlock.

Also, the 1.6 are not 100%.

I observed myself a 50% to find a 1.6 that DIDN'T unlock.

How unfortunate. It was the day before Christmas Eve that I discovered a semi cheap card that can be modded with incredible speeds. I was really excited how much potential this card possess and wanted to buy as soon as possible. Until final researching says it was not possible due to Ati's "Finally catching on"

*Are you sure all 2.0 ns Rams are incapable?

*Is it possible to find a 1.6ns in the market today?
*Are there other brands (ex. sapphire, msi) that can be modded sucessfully with 16 piplines?

and is a $200 X700 pro with 100$ rebate really worth it?
Because yesterday, i decided to return it (had it for 3 weeks) because of how many people suceeded unlocking all the piplines and I simply desired more power!

Can someone briefly suggest a powerful last agp card?
PS: Thanks for responding internal and everyone else who does.

Very late reply, sorry, just came onto this page.
Anyway, i flashed my x850pro AGP 2.0ns to 16 pipes and 540/1080 frequencies (yeah, i'm lucky with the memory, no artifacts to 555 Mhz!). Ah, and I use a Silencer 5 which I love! I didn't use available Bioses though, because they are mainly for 1.6ns memory which has different timings. I modified my Bios with a Hex editor and RaBIT (which is real simple) and flashed it with modified flashrom (which lets you unlock pipelines more easily than Atiflash does). It worked perfectly!
