    Well i'm using the Pro bios that have all 16 pipes unlocked. I've always been wondering, will I get more Performance if I was to flash the XT PE bios? Is there a difference between the two? I just installed the 8.07 Beta drivers and ran 3DMark03 and got 12,465.. I hear that some people with the XT PE are getting somewhere in the 13,500 range? If I flash will I get numbers closer to that using these drivers? Whats the best bios to use?


    I'll Probably use rabit to lower the clocks back to Pro speeds...

    Well I flashed the XT PE bios and at 570/560 I got 13,010 in 3DMark03. Using the Pro 16pipe bios @ 560/560 I was only able to attain a score of 12,8xx

    If you can find an XT PE BIOS for a card with the same ram as your pro has and ur card can handle the default frequencies (usually 520/560) then you may as well use it. The performance will depend on how good a match the BIOS is to your card as well as the frequencies it is running at.

    I use an XT PE BIOS and mine works fine (although i did do the pencil mod to up the voltage to 1.45V). :D
