    That's one of the XT series' extra features. I think you can unlock that feature with the ATI version of Coolbits (I don't know what it's called though). I'm not sure though, it's really kinda dumb. Use ATItool to detect 3d games and use a MUCH higher overclocked speed that you make yourself.

    The ATI's coolbit toll is "called" flashing of XT BIOS. If you are with AGP card it probably can be unlocked to 16 pipes. If it is PCIX probably you will remain with 12 pipes but if flash it you will have 12 pipe XT card with OVERDRIVE feature ;) .
