Unlocking a GTS450? possible?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
With the release of GTX550 Ti, I was wondering...
Since the GTS450 has some locked features like a 192-bit bus and a few others, I was thinking if a bios flash to a GTX550 Ti would unlock those features?
It's fine :)

No, since it's a different chip. Unlocking GTX 465's into GTX470's worked because they were the same chip, just BIOS limited (and even then it wouldn't always work). Plus, the 550 Ti has different memory setup

A GTS450 is a GTS450. Nothing more, nothing less.
