I try to get an agp card for my current system. Of course i want to mob n overclock it <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> My target is X800GTO or X850pro that be able to unlock to 16 pipeline n good for overclocking. <br />
I found the Sapphine X800GTO with "Blue" pcb in newegg. The review said its almost 100% unlockable or it came with 16 pipeline. Is that true? I read the article from techpowerup <a href="http://www.techpowerup.com/printarticle.php?id=127" target="_blank">http://www.techpowerup.com/printarticle.php?id=127</a> it only happen on PCIe GTO2. No matter R430 or R480, is it still can be unlocked to 16 pipeline? Can X800GTO be overclocked to 500 core or more? I dont want to stuck at 12 pipeline after went thru all the trouble. <br />
There is high risk getting not unlockable X850 pro even its a VIVO version. Correct me if i m wrong. I placed an order for ATI X850 pro in newegg 2 days ago, but its on back order, all my credit refunded. I doubt newegg wil got any more stock for this. At the same price the X800GTO comes into my choose. <br />
I need all of ur advice n recommendation. If u used to/still own the unlockable X800GTO or X850 pro, pls give me a hand here. Even u never own one, ur advice will be great help too. I hope this last agp upgrade can be an happy ending. <br />

The X850 Pro is a guaranted R481 core so 500mhz core and good overclocking, chance at unlocking.<br />
<br />
The Blue PCB GTO is an R430 definetly, so it will unlock to 16 pipelines but the cores can hardly overclock at all, 450mhz if your lucky.<br />
<br />
Red GTO could be any of the cores.
