It depends. If you have an older AGP card (PCI-E cards cannot be unlocked), then you can unlock it. The newer ones have the other pipelines laser cut, so you won't be able to unlock them at all. The NV40 cores are the older ones and the NV41 cores are newer (cannot be unlocked). My 6800XT is an NV40, and i unlocked it from 8PP, 4VP to 16PP 6VP <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br>
No OC, no unlocking: 3D Mark 03 score-- 7,500<br>
OCed to 395/875, fully unlocked: 3D Mark 03 score-- 13,000

Well I bought this card when they had the price drop to 100$ about 2 weeks ago does that mean that they can't be unlocked?

Is it AGP? then you probably can.<br>
Read my FAQ: <a href="http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/89064-unlocking-your-6800-a.html#post913973" target="_blank">http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/8906...tml#post913973</a>

It all depends on if its AGP or not, and how old it is. If its a fairly new card, i doubt youll be able to unlock anything.
