    Aww c'mon guys, just another 100 marks on 3dmark? Its not worth it. Since you card is already up to par, then let it be! Why bother modding it at all when it can handle EVERY GAME in the market now? This is ludicrous!!

    Well that answer is simple.

    Because it can.

    it would be nice but like was already said, no big deal the GT performs close enough to the GTX as it is. thats why i didnt buy a GTX in the first place ;) BUT more power IS better. especially when its "free" lol

    word on the street is that it's 99.9% imposible to do it.
    it's cause the silicon of the GPU is different from GTX... they cut the pipelines in the silicon... that's what i read somewhere...
    :( hope i'm wrong

    hi guys...translating what it says

    Early versions of the GeForce 7800GT engineering sample has a bigger chance of unlocking pipes to 24ps/8vs (or bios is not forcing 20ps/7vs operation!?), nVidia have said that unlocking pipeline in official version is a matter of chance, not all products will be able to unlock and they also refuse to comment on chance of successfully unlocking the pipeline. The author's Galaxy brand is of a earlier engineering sample, therefore both cards were able to successfully unlock to 24ps/8vs.

    Only that first paragraph is of any interest the rest if just about how both cards successfully unlock showed improvement in performance cards stable in SLI mode cpu bottlenecking the performance la di da useless crap

    hope this help guys lol

    As far as I know - and this was confirmed by unwinder a long time ago - there is no way to unlock the pipes and shader on the 7800GT cards at present.

    Ive tried on both my GTs, I can see the locked pipes in rivatuner and click to unlock them, but after restart they dont unlock.

    Just forget about it if i were you - if it happens then great, if not then im not fussed
