- X800Pro - XT Succesful Softmods!

The word's spreading like wildfire today that people are successfully 'soft'modding their X800 Pro "VIVO" based cards into XT's, effectively enabling the extra 4 pipelines. Apparently the VIVO based cards are identical to the XT in every respect, including the 1.6ns memory and intact bridges, all that is needed is the right BIOS to unlock the remaining 4 pipelines. This "right" BIOS just so happens to be one from Gigabyte. Got A VIVO based X800 Pro? Well then what are you waiting for? Head over to the Rage3D forums for starters. Further info over at Overclockers AU and the Hexus forums.


News is spreading that people are performing successful softmods on their X800Pro's, turning them into XT's.

...people that have successfully soft modded the current batch of Club3D X800 Pro Vivo cards to XT by flashing with a Gigabyte Bios. These cards are shipping with the 1.6ns Ram, bridges still intact and even have XT stickers on the HSF - by all accounts they are effectively XT cards with 4 pipelines disabled in the bios. If you want to know more, got it working or blew up your card trying, then let us know in our forum. -Hexus
