    I own a new Sapphire X800 pro VIVO (256DDR3) that (curiously) has the slower 2.0 ns rams. Is it still possible to do the BIOS mod to gain the other 4 pixel pipes? Also, I see references to an X800 pro VIVO BIOS that unlocks the extra 4 pixel pipes, and nothing more. Where is it? :confused:

    PCI-E it definitely is.

    It's definitely PCI-e (I have an MSI 925XE motherboard), and the chips are clearly labelled GC2.0. There is another thread somewhere on this forum that I read yesterday by someone who got the same card (or so it would seem). Not only did he have the 2.0 memory, it also had the laser cut! He attempted to do the mod, and was unseccessful. Thus, my investigation. Maybe the newest ones off out of the plant have been blocked somehow.

    Hi, I had a X800Pro VIVO with 2.0ns memory and PCI-E. I flashed to XT speeds and 16 pipelines no problem (ok, it was a bit fiddly but even I could do it). Mine was a Powercolor.

    Does your card have the laser cut?
