    so if all of these cards can be "upgraded" so what is the point of 470?

    They can't, please read the thread. Only certain vendors are supplying the 10 ram chip, 470 variants.

    Most are the 8 ram chip, GTX465, which may or may not unlock the extra SM's.

    Important note: this tool uses slightly altered method of 465 modification via flashing GTX 470 BIOS. The tool reads BIOS from your card, patches ROM straps it and flashes it back. Some users wrongly assume that this method doesn't result in BIOS modification, which is not true.

    Interesting news from the great Unwinder ;~)

    Thank you for Afterburner it makes it so much easier to make a fan profile for my card.

    I guess not everyone likes 90-100*C load temps?
    judging from those benchies...its pretty impressive since the GTX465 is about $70 cheaper than the 470 here... Makes me want to mess around with one, but I have not done that stuff before.

    If you guys pay more attention to the first post, particularly to the GPU-Z screenshots, you'll notice that the tool does not unlock more memory or memory bus.

    In other words, this tool IS for cards with 8 chips. If you had 10 chips, you'd just flash right to a GTX 470 BIOS, no need to bother with this tool.

    I guess it looks for a certain BIOS revision on your card. If it doesn't have it, it won't let you use the tool.

    Well lets see... days later and still the same story...POV review cards apparently 470's flashed to 465's ASUS has still not claimed the tool as their own and has anyone flashed a known retail card? Just one?

    Do people here a favor... dump your current VGA BIOS and upload it!

    Now why don't you give the ASUS unlocker a try ;)

    Won't hurt, right? ;)

    Hmm, NiBiTor is having issues recognizing your BIOS file...

    and I'm pretty sure GDDR5 cards have 128KB size BIOS.

    is there another way to save the bios? I try to save bin again and is the same 61.5kb
    I use the latest gpuz and save it to bin. I also try using NiBiTor and it have issue recognizing the bios.

    i did try the unlocker it said "This Card can not Upgrade"

    That is strange... your BIOS version matches the guy from ChipHell...

    Check your PM :)

    Dumb question, but do you have UAC disabled? ;)

    If not, are you doing "Run as Administrator"?
