    Using ShadowFlare's modified X800GT bios.. i successfully flashed my card to the R480 core...

    Heres the rundown.. Sure, the card runs a tad warmer... but get THIS!

    Before flash i got 3489 in 3DMark05... with this setup
    AMD Athlon 64 3000+ @ 2.3GHz
    1GB Corsair RAM DDR400
    PowerColor X800GT 475 core/ 490 mem (not overclocked)

    After flash i got 4152 in 3Dmark0f with this setup
    AMD Athlon 64 3000+ @ 2.0GHz
    512MB Corsair RAM DDR400
    PowerColor X800GT(identified as GTO with R480 now) 475 core/ 490 mem (not OC'd)

    Hrm... was taking 5 minutes to flash the bios and gain a tad under 700 points more?

    YES IF I DO SAY SO MYSELF

    NOTE : I had to use flashrom to do the flash... atiflash kept messing up... it got a write fail at 4/10000 bytes...so i tryed flashrom and it worked like a charm. Still breaking in the Arctic Silver 5 i just put on!
