    I think there will be a good improvement, maybe not great, but definitely a good one.

    i hope you are right,i wonder maybe Unwinder could let us know if he saw an increase in his cards performance?

    dont need numbers just either a big YES or a little yes would be great :)

    Of course I saw no performance increase at all. Everybody know that extra pipelines are absolutely useless and NV/ATI increase pipeline number in new chips just for fun...

    P.S. Stupid question = stupid answer

    ban?

    did you read the 2 other posts before my post above?

    i asked if the 128meg of ddr ram will bottleneck the 6800 once the 4 other pipes are active? i didnt think this was a stupid question at all... but if thats a banable question carry on .


    maybe i should just stick to posting smilies..

    heys ppl...since nobody asks, i have to say i'm a little curious....Unwinder, can u fill us in on some details on your progress and problems so far? i'm talking about what kind of problems are u facing with all the different bios from the different card makers, and if, from what u have seen, the majority of the cards have the 4 extra pipes funcional or not?
    greets all,
    keep up the excellent work Unwinder :)

    Relax, mate. It's definitively not a banable question ;)

    No problems, just collecting statistics. Currently we've seen 4 6800NU's wich can work in 16 pipeline mode, from about 10 tested boards. So success rate is rather low.

    were they from the same brands ?

    Any luck with Evga ?

    No, they are not the same brands and modability doesn't depend on this factor. And no, we've not tried EVGA.

    thanks alot unwinder, appreciate your replies.

    last question :)

    is it realistic to assume we'll see a release before the end of this month ?

    if you need someone else to test enabling the pipes to get more statistics on the success rate let me know.

    I dunno, a 40% success rate sounds good to me?

    I'd be happy to contribute in testing, as well, although I will be out of town next week.

    Am I understanding you right in that you have the mod working at the moment, and it's just a matter of determining if there is any way to predict success?

    Well 40 % sounds good to me. I hope I will have luck with my sparkle 6800.
    Anyway, keep the good work Unwinder :)

    Actual Benefits

    Obviously there will be benefits, but How much of an increase is actually seen? I want to see some numbers. Anyone?
    Specifically at Higher resolutions. But all ranges would be nice too ;)

    If you want to compare the difference between having 12 pipes versus 16, just overclock your 6800 NU to GT/Ultra speeds, and compare results to the published benchmarks... no need to bother Unwinder with that...
