hi I try to flash the x800xt 16pipe 500/1000 to the bios my other card uses gigabyte x800xt pe 520/560 but i get a device id error saying the card is ATI or some crap..

i know for a fact the card will do 520/560 as its runninng at 585/625 on stock air but for some reason gigabyte dropped the PE version.. I used this command line to flash below

gvf11 -p a:\r80x256v.f1 -f

my card is 4A4B as device id btw..

if there is a way to force flash let me know thanks or if i need to use atiflash or flashrom and just use a direct ati original x800xt pe bios let me know that also

The Gigabyte Flash tool is used for Pro VIVO cards to force open the other 4 pipes. Your XT already has all 16 pipes open. I don't think you could have messed up anything by using it, but it may be the reason the XT PE bios won't take. Try using W1zzards edited flashrom and flash to an XT PE's bios. If it doesn't take that time, you can flash to empty.bin, which erases all signs of any bios, then try flashing it to an XT PE bios. Make a back up of your original bios first thing though. Also, check your PM and the X800Pro VIVO to X800XT PE thread please. I have a question for you in those. Thanks!

Thats because you bought a X800 XT - default speeds of 500core & 500mem - Your thinking of a X800 XT PE - default 520core & 560mem - & they are more expensive. You should of paid more attention in to what you were buying. However, use ATITool to over clock it to XT PE levels & you will see no difference.
