X1800 GTO unlockable?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Anyone know for sure if the X1800 GTO is moddable to unlock the 4 pipelines into an X1800 XL?

The cards are identical in all ways (PCB, clock speeds, memory configuration, cooling) except that the X1800 GTO has 12pixel pipes enabled instea of 16.

AS of now It cant be unlocked if I am correct. It has the possiblity to be unlocked. But a BIOS is needed that will work for it. Use google and search for it frequently, i'm sure something will come up.

If the X1800GTO were unlockable would be like a normal X1800XL then ? Becasue the X1800XL overclocks to speeds like the X1800XT.

Looking around for a new graphic card that still has enough power to play latest games and can overclock. Does anybody know how the X1800GTO overclocks ? Ive been looking at the X850XTs at Newegg for 168 dollars, however they dont support SM3. Any other recommendations?

An X850 XT for $160 is a great deal, these cards perform great and their prices are as low as they'll ever be before disapearing. However, if you were hoping for something more high end, then an X1800 GTO can be a great card.

As I said, its the exact same thing as an X1800 XL, just 4 disabled pipes. So they overclock the same too.

So far my research has shown that there are multiple laser cuts on most of these, but possible unlocks thorugh soldering are still possible.
