6800XT pci-e unlock more pipelines?

post #1 of 9

6800XT http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150130

I was reading some of the reviews for this card and some people say they have unlocked it and some say you can't. I was wondering if it is true or not

Well several Newegg customers, who purchased this PCI-E 6800XT, say otherwise.

The 6800XT on PCI-E I beleive uses the NV41 core, while the AGP version uses the NV40.. NV40 will go to 16/6, NV41 I think is just 12/5. Not quite sure though, but I know it uses a different core.
