- ASUS AX-800 Pro => XT Mod

The X800 Pro to XT mods are becoming more common across the board since PCUnleash's article made it look so much more tempting. The folks at Lost Circuits couldn't resist checking to see if their X800 Pro sample from ASUS was capable of unlocking the extra 4 pipelines, and take us through their experiences in successfully modding this card into an XT bad boy.


ASUS is one of ATI's prime partner in the graphics sector. A rich and innovative bundle has made their recent offerings stand out from the crowd of third party manufacturers of ATI or nVidia based cards. But that is not what we are talking about in this article.


Or not quite, at least. Rather, we were interested in what it takes to re-enable the catatonic pipelines in the X800 Pro series and how well the resulting home-made X800XT would perform. We have the details of the operation and the caveats and pitfalls along with the workarounds. Moreover, we have a few rather stunning performance numbers for your viewing pleasure.
