    Since it is probably not much more than a modified HD2900-something card, one could assume the possibility is present, i.e. "it is not unlikely".

    However - until ATI releases an official FireGL product based on these chips, there won't be much modding to do.
    One could try to use the modified HD2900 driver, but no results have been posted to date.

    As usual with these things: wait for the official side!

    you donĀ“t have to wait for ati to release such a card. all you need to do is "tell" the ati2mtag.sys to use the pro features. thats how it works since the first days of softmodding firegl cards, when unwinder saw this weak point and released the patchscripts for everybody.

    the patchscript from the chinese guys for modding the hd3850 to a firestream firegl card you will find here:
