its different for every card, if people knew "for sure "the ycould buy a specif card and unlock it, then nvidia or ati would have sold them as the full version card in this case its a 6800GS, if it was able to unlock easily they would havesolt it as a 6800u. So it just depends on each card, so there is a chance it will unlock and a chance it wont.

O i see, i was just wondering because it said on one of the reviews for another card that they could unlock it to 16 pipelines and my tech freind told me that this was the best 6800gs i was going to get for this price, does anyone disagree?
again..very much appreciated

if someone was able to unlock it then thats even just a little better chance of you unlocking yours so i say go for it if you need a decent card, you can always sel lit later if your not happy with it.

Maybe it's by brand? Do EVGA 6800's unlock 100%?

I've heard that, but everyone that I have heard of that has flashed to a 6800GT bios has said they had complete success...

The AGP 6800GS has great potential, even without the unlock. with a good cooler, you could probably get it to about 540/1.25

your not going to get any unlock out of that card on the PCI-E version, this is due to the GPU core, and I have tried myself without luck, the 6800 does unlock in AGP version I'm not sure about the 6800GS AGP
