    Yeah, saw that, too.

    I've GOT to find out how this is going to work! As I've mentioned elsewhere, I'm happy with my 6800nu even 'knowing' this mod was impossible.

    If it's NOT impossible, though....well, then, DAMN, I'm one happy camper!

    Here is the Babelfish translation, with me making a few obvious replacements for grammar purposes:

    Hehe NVIDIA just got new customers that will wanna buy GF 6800 NU :)
    Nice move hehe,i think they knew this from beginning ;)
    Anyway,its a great news. You can get ultra card for much less money :)
    I wonder if there is 50/50 chance,like there was on R9800SE or R9500 NP (256bit) hm...

    Don't forget that 6800NU only has 2.8ns ram, so the max you can get is around ~800Mhz ram, compared to 1.1-1.2Ghz on the 6800GT.

    The PCB is also different, and I haven't seen any 6800NU go higher than ~400Mhz core.

    Overall, if it works on ALL the cards, it would be a good deal, but considering it still costs ~$285USD or higher, and 6800GT can be had for around $370USD, you get what you pay for.

    The memory on my card can manage 900Mhz easily..:D

    According to xbit labs article:

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/gf6800-oc_5.html

    Of course, theres a possibility that some slipped through....

    /me wants new rivatuner

    Hey, who knows, I might be able to unlock the hidden 4 pipes on 6800gt too, to bring the grand total to 20pipes! :p

    On serious note, 6800-owners need an updated rivatuner which won't crash stuff with incompatible drivers :D

    Too bad it sounds like it's kind of difficult to deactivate the other 4 pipes once you flash the Ultra BIOS on your 6800 standard if they turn out to be defective. Still, it would be so cool if some good ones slipped through the cracks.

    Yeah, but this ISN'T A BIOS FLASH.

    That's why it's cool - yeah, the BIOS flash, if it screws up, is hard to undo.

    This isn't. If 16 pipes don't work, just reboot. *poof*, back to 12 pipes!

    It's a *software* mod, NOT a *BIOS* mod!

    This is different, and better, which is why we can't wait to try it out! It can't hurt to try, if it works, great, you've got a 16 pipeline card! If it doesn't, no problem, just turn it off and reboot, and you're back to normal!

    This is GREAT news!

    Yeah, I know the new Rivatuner could be great, but what they were doing in the review is what I was talking about. They were using the BIOS flash. Obviously Rivatuner could fix things in a snap if they don't work. I can't wait.
