    I just recently picked up 2 x HD4830's for a stupidly good price (around £50 each) and i am crossfiring them and having very good results indeed.

    Now i was wondering, it has 640 shaders to the 4850/4870's 800 shaders, is there anyone that knows if this graphics card can be reflashed or software modded to unleash all 800 shaders?.

    i have goggled this silly and came up with about 4 threads just talking about the cheapness of the card but nothing about overclocking/modding :(

    Thanks :D

    pretty sure the extra shaders are permanently disabled by laser cutting. dont think they can be enabled.

    What brand 4850 are they? Why not just try the 4850 bios from that brand, with modded clock speeds?

    If and when you try to flash, try one first and then see if it works for a day or two, then do the next one.

    FYI: Even if there was a bios, GeoD is right, it could be locked/cut in the hardware.
