If you get an X800Pro, try your best to get the VIVO version, which will give you a pretty good chance to unlock the extra piplines. If you can get the extra piplines unlocked and can clock it high enough, you could easily have an X850XT or even an X850XTPE on your hands, all for the price of an X800Pro.

Good Luck!

Yea, the one I suggested to him has VIVO.

By the way, what is VIVO and what does it do?

VIVO = Video in, Video out. I'm not sure exactly how it operates or what functions precisely it provides, but it allows video feed both ways.

As you might know, it is important to get a VIVO X800Pro (for overclocking) as the vast majority of the non-VIVO X800Pro's have hardware locked pipelines, which can be quite dangerous to try to unlock, requiring some hardware modification that, if done incorrectly, can lead to a permanently damaged video card. The VIVO X800Pro's give a much better chance of unlocking the pipelines as they are generally software locked and just require some software modification, which carries far less risk than hardware modification.

There will always be a chance that the extra pipelines wont unlock whatever card version you get, but with the X800Pro's the VIVO version gives you the best chance to unlock the pipelines and make it into an X850XT/XTPE.

You probably knew all this already lightsource, but I thought it might be useful to post anyway.

Thanks a lot Highly-Annoyed. I knew about the unlocking and things but I didn't know about what VIVO was for I figured it was some type of optimization code such as SS2 but for GPU's.
