Can I overclock/unlock Pipelines for my PNY Verto 6200 AGP 128MB DDR2 Gfx card?

post #1 of 22

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum, so I hope this will be a relevant spot to ask this question.

I have a graphics card, PNY Verto 6200 AGP that is old, I know, but it was given to me and I am trying to determine if the version is one that is unlockable/overclockable?

I know overclock is jumping voltages/clock speeds and clock multipliers so technically I am not overclocking, but I want to unlock the other 4 pixel pipelines if my card is capable, the only problem I have ran into is that I have had some problems IDing the correct card that I own.

The sticker states a model # and a description, the description is PNY Geforce 6200 AGP DDR2 128MB... so I lookedup the card(which has three output that are Svideo, DVI, VGA) and It has a heatsink on the GPU... The gpu states its a 6200 but has N43 and some other numbers and also see an A1 on the GPU, there is a sticker that states otherwise on the otherside of the card that has V5.44.A2.07.51 on it... I am confused as to which descriptive to use, the one on the GPU that says N43 or the sticker that I just stated, I already put the heatsink back on the GPU so I don't want to remove it a gain to take the artic silver off of it and do it all over again so I am going to tell you other details on the card.

One sticker says VCG62128APB has a barcode, under the barcode the numbers 7 51492 25681 8. where 7 is on left side of bar code, 8 is on right side of bar code.

Other sticker says this
PNY Technologies Inc.
Geforce 6200 DDR2 128MB AGP
G606200A8E11T/BC4ACA
P362A01AA01 C0066 005393
PNY PO# B126613

if anyone can help me determine which card this is ( I want to know if it is an older 6200 that used a 6600 series Geforce gpu instead of the later model ones according to the wiki series 6 geforce article I read into)

I want to know if I am able to unlock the 4 other pixel pipelines, and I also want to know whether this information can determine if it has a 300mhz clock, 350mhz clock, and a memory speed of 500mhz or 540mhz? Anything would be great if you could help me out as I have been at a loss trying to find out any other info on this card.

Thanks a lot

Mike

A program called GPU-Z will help you find info like clock speeds, voltage, etc.

Really, I don't think you'd see any real-world benefit from unlocking pixel pipelines. What are you using the card for anyway?

I mean what are you trying to do with the card? That card does not do much for HD acceleration nor is powerful enough to play any recent game. A $20 video card today would be able to outperform it easily.


The 6200 only has 4 pixel pipelines so there is nothing to unlock: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6200_chip_specifications

I didnt realize that CPU-Z monitored GFX cores and memory speeds along with clocks?

from the wiki I quote: "
However, at introduction, production silicon was not yet ready. Nvidia fulfilled 6200 orders by shipping binned/rejected 6600 series cores (NV43V). The rejects were factory modified to disable four-pixel pipelines, thereby converting the native 6600 product into a 6200 product. Some users were able to "unlock" early 6200 boards through a software utility (effectively converting the 6200 back into a 6600 with the complete set of eight pixel pipelines total) if they owned boards with an NV43 A2 or earlier revision of the core. Thus, not all NV43-based 6200 boards could successfully be unlocked (specifically, those with a core revision of A4 or higher), and as soon as NV44 production silicon became available, Nvidia discontinued shipments of downgraded NV43V cores."

So tell me I cannot be confused by this.. my GPU SAYS N43 A1 on it theres a sticker that says v5.44.A2.07.51 also, now I dont know what to trust. I am trying to unlock the pixel pipelines to make it perform better, it would be basically a 6600 with the software modification.
I am going to use this as a main display adapter to hook hdmi to my tv using the DVI adapter and possibly play Need for speed carbon, crysis, and battlefield on my PC... through my sony hdtv 42".

I respect your optimism, but that's just not gonna happen bro, even if you double the core clocks, memory clocks and tripled the amount of pixel pipelines on it. It's not going to happen.

THe wiki has me confused because there are many revisions
GeForce 6200 TurboCache / AGP
6200 Without Turbocache
GeForce 6200 PCI-Express (NV44) TurboCache
"The GeForce 6200 TurboCache / AGP (NV44/NV44a) is a natively four-pipeline version of the NV43. NV44 cards only have a very small (by modern standards) amount of memory, but make up for this by using system memory accessed through the PCI-Express bus."
My card is AGP, so technically it wont use the PCI Express BUS because the PC doesn't have a PCI Express bus but PCI.... so I will ignore the fact that it will share memory seeing it has dedicated 128mb. the V5.44.A2 makes me wonder if it is a NV44.A2
or if the N43 A1 on the GPU would make it a NV43? and the revision A1 is obviously less then A4 revision of the core? but the dang sticker saying V5 makes me wonder if its version 5 revision of the core... I just am lost here, if you think its not going to improve the card I will just leave it alone

how so I ran the games on my laptop which had a 1.8ghz turion and 1gb memory with integrated ati radeon 200M graphics with 128mb shared memory, and your saying this wont run them any better?
I really can't believe shared to run better then dedicated?
I just wanted some help ID the card to determine if it had a NV43 core revision of A5 or less....
