    Performance boost for X800 GT cards with R480 GPU

    Ah, I didn't know; I haven't really kept up with this stuff for quite a while. :laugh:

    Performance boost for X800 GT cards with R480 GPU

    Unfortunately, your card does not have an R480 gpu, so do not even try using that particular bios on your card.

    New NVIDIA compiler lets developers offload math functions to GPU

    It would be great if microsoft supports things like this in their .NET framework, considering that .NET apps can get machine-specific optimizations when they are compiled on the computer running them. ;)

    Microsoft Virtual PC 2007

    Virtual PC/Server cannot be run within Virtual PC/Server -- it will not allow it; I have already tried. lol However, it is possible to install the management web site for Virtual Server within a virtual machine if you want to and it will even let you install (but not run) the actual Virtual...

    Microsoft Virtual PC 2007

    I haven't tried it myself, but it may be possible to even use VPC 2004 on any Windows that has any version of VPC 2007 installed on it as long as you actually have the files from an installation of VPC 2004, considering that the VPC 2007 program itself is still 32-bit even when running the...

    Microsoft Virtual PC 2007

    If you are on XP 32-bit (possibly also on Vista 32-bit?), then it is possible to use either VPC 2004 or 2007 if you made a copy of one before installing the other (most likely a copy of 2004 before installing 2007). However, you can only run one of them at a time, which means you need to choose...

    Microsoft Windows Vista Prices Revealed

    lol, why would you have to do that when you have the discs for both still? Actually, it should be just like previous upgrades from Windows versions - in any previous Windows versions (XP included), to make a fresh install, you simply would need to have the disc for any eligible version to...

    Dell XCS modular concept PC

    Hmm, I guess I'll add some of my own comments on this. 1) To prevent certain ones from being taken out while it is running, they should be locked into place when the computer is powered up. For drives, they could maybe be unlocked after using a command in the OS to eject the media or the...

    ATI Changes their Video Card Cooling Policy

    Eh? Must not have read it carefully enough. "They will still provide them if video card makers choose to use them, but default shipments will not contain coolers."

    Performance boost for X800 GT cards with R480 GPU

    8 pipelines is all those cards have normally have available. I simply set the bioses here to 16 pipelines just in case anyone did have an unlockable card, nothing was really intended to be implied by saying that they are 16 pipeline bioses. If you want to know whether your card is capable of...

    ICT free HD-DVD & Blu Ray movies until 2010

    So after reading that, in my opinion if they didn't do that, then the formats might just flop. I say this because I'm sure that there will probably be many people who won't know that they need a special display for the high resolution, not just any HDTV display. Then if they buy a player...

    ASUS and BFG PhysX add-in Cards Now Available

    Actually, there is a performance-related benefit that I can think of for either using the second video card for physics or having a physics processor right on the video card. When doing either of those, there will be much more bandwidth between the physics and graphics subsystem than with these...

    X800 fuses data for unlocking

    As I was saying, since it is R480 there isn't anything like that to do with it. So unless you are taking off the cooler for some other reason, like using different thermal compound or a different heatsink/fan then just don't take it off.

    X800 fuses data for unlocking

    Nope, no chances of unlocking any at all. First of all, your CONFIG_ROM_FUSES value is ending in zero, which means that you have no pipelines locked in the card's bios software. Second, your card has an R480 chip, which is known to not have laser cuts (well, at least on an accessible side).

    Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion rating bumped from "Teen" to "Mature"

    Did everyone forget about the other part about the rating change that was mentioned? "more detailed depictions of blood and gore than were considered in the original rating"

    Performance boost for X800 GT cards with R480 GPU

    As far as I know, there isn't a way to do that, since I think they are totally different chip types.

    Performance boost for X800 GT cards with R480 GPU

    Maybe you could try changing it to a different type of X850-class card, like X850 Pro, XT, or XT PE. Look at the stickied "Guide to Radeon X800/X850 bios modding" thread for more information.

    Performance boost for X800 GT cards with R480 GPU

    You can change it to that device ID, but doing so will make it go back to it's original performance level. BTW, that's the bios you used on your card? Did you check to see what kind of memory chips were on your card before trying that one?

    new X800GTO2 VIVO DUAL DVI not a R480(?)

    Well, when using with an X850 crossfire card, you definately would want it saying it is R480, not R430, so you should probably flash the bios to change it. As for modifying the clock speeds in RaBiT, test it first with ATITool to make sure it can handle the speed you are going to set. Also...

    X800 fuses data for unlocking

    Seems about what I would expect with 4 pipelines... I tried it once by modifying my bios to make it use only 4.

    Check the performance and see if it is any different.

    X800 GTO² to X850 XT BIOS Mod

    I think there may only be a performance change from going between R423 and R480 in the bios.

    Performance boost for X800 GT cards with R480 GPU

    This thread is only about X800 GT cards (no X800 GTO's) and isn't about unlocking pipelines at all, so your post is off topic here. The cards that this thread is about are rarely (or likely never) having unlockable pipelines.

    X800 fuses data for unlocking

    I think I remember someone mentioning that R430 doesn't have laser cuts, so that mod might not be possible on his card.
