You all read about the hardware modification to turn your Radeon 9500 into a Radeon 9700 with the soldier and BIOS trick right ? This time we'll talk about modification at software level! Unwinder's attempts to unlock additional 4 pixel pipelines in RADEON 9500 64MB have succeeded at last, so his SoftR9700 patch script can turn any 128-bit R9500 into 9500PRO and any 256-bit R9500 into R9700 without soldering resistor on R300 GPU and loosing warranty! IXBT.com is preparing a detailed review on how to do all this, and nvWorld.ru & Guru3D.com are preparing to launch new RivaTuner v2.0 RC12.1, which will contain SoftR9700 scripts. Expect the new Rivatuner in about 1-2 weeks ! If you like to discuss this topic then please do it in this forum-thread where the programmer can be found also. I must warn you though do not bug him with questions like 'how much longer until the new RivaTuner is out'. To post/reply you need to be registered to the forums.
