Anyone still have guide to unlock 9600GSO?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i recently bought a HD6950 to use as primary GPU, and decided to use the 9600GSO for PhysX cards.

did some research and found that some could be unlocked/modded to a 8800GT?? link:http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...ed-8800gt.html

it has 96 Stream processors, and should be a G92 core
however, it's XFX brand, not galaxy.. and it got 4x memory chips on the back of the PCB (256mb each?) instead of 8x/6x chips

Here are the full Specs:

any help guiding me to the right direction would be appreciated.

I don't think that one will do it, sorry.

Pretty sure it's the wrong memory bus width (128-bit) and the wrong memory type (DDR2) ... it's been a LONG time since a g92-based 9600GSO 384MB DDR3 w/192-bit bus (the only kind that was ever unlockable TTBOMK) was sold.

Have you taken the cooler off to see if it's indeed a G92? I'd be very surprised if it was given the other specs.

ON a happier note though a 9600GSO w/96 shaders makes for a fine physX card, esp. just to couple w/a single 6950.

It most likely won't unlock, sorry.
