Can 384 shaders be unlocked on GF104?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
With the pending release of the GTX560, which is rumered to use a fully unlocked GF104 chip, (Im guessing this because it will have 384 shaders, nvidia never told us what happened to the top bin of the GF104) will we be able to use its bios to flash the GTX 460 into thinking its the GTX560 hence unlocking its extra shaders?

Just an idea burning into my head since Ive got 2 msi hawks arriving tomorrow or the day after

No, they cannot. The GF104 is compartmentalized in which they can remove clusters of stream processors.

LIES! How dare you dismiss my ideas

Soz mate jokes, so what your saying is that they actually remove the last cluster in the chip? Can you point me to where you obtained that information? Seems weird that they would take the time to actually remove a cluster from the chip, it would cost much time and money to do so.

yeah thats a good question, although I wouldnt be too shocked if they did do that already thinking about releasing a fully unlocked version in the future(560).
