GTX465 to full GTX470 flashing guide!

post #1 of 544
Thread Starter 
Apparently the GTX465 can be flashed to a GTX470 with all the SPs, TMUs and ROPs enabled! Makes me have second thoughts about my 5770s... at least they were a lot cheaper though. Anyway this was originally found on the Romanian site Lab501 here.

I have fixed up the translation of the flashing instructions:

NOTE: Do not restart or power off the computer until this entire process is completed, or you may end up with a bricked card that has to be blind flashed.

1. Download the GTX465 Unlock Pack and unzip the files to a bootable flash drive. To make the flash drive bootable, put these files on it.

2. Boot from the flash drive and navigate to the directory where the files from the archive were extracted to.

3. Erase the EEPROM with the following command (without quotes): "nvflash --eraseeeprom". Confirm the command with "y" when prompted.

4. Flash the card with the GTX470 bios with the following command (without quotes): "nvflash -4 -5 -6 gtx470.rom". When this has completed, the process is done and the computer can be restarted.


Anybody wanna try this?

So I am sure Nvidia will be putting a halt on all there outstanding orders if this is true?? Maybe I will rethink my Thoughts on purchasing a GTX470 in light of this info?

You could, but it would be luck of the draw.

There are really no guarantees that the extra CUDA cores/ROPs on your 465 will work when unlocked though, but if you're satisfied with a 465 over a 470 in general, then why not, since it'd just be a bonus if the BIOS flash did properly allow the locked cores to function

Did they benchmark it?

Because nVidia litterally uses a laser to bin their chips.

According to a Romanian website, I believe they did bench it before and after a flash with the 470 bios and the results after the flash allowed the 465 to thoroughly beat a stock-clocked 5850...but this really can't be confirmed or denied, as we only have the supposed benchmarks from that site.

Isn't this like dangerous? Because i thought 465's are 470 or 480 that have faulty cores or something.

From what I've read the BIOS has no effect on memory. People who have flashed a 470 to a 480 still only get the 470 amount of memory.
