    I have one coming in on Tuesday the 30th of August, 2005, and was wondering if anyone had tried flashing the Powercolor X800GT which has the R480 core, rumored to be unlockable with a BIOS tweak or flash. Has anyone heard any news on this yet?

    Sorry if I came off as doubting, I was just wondering :). You're one of the few people on the 'net I would take their word for granted.

    What is the point of flashing the bios on a Powercolor X800GT?

    Is it to be able to overclock it or is it to get it to take different drivers?

    I have had mine clocked to 550/550 with a Zalman VF-700AIcu on it.
