Flash a Sapphire bios on a card and it'll detect your card as Sapphire? And then work...

Or is that a bad idea?

I thought it was already shipping with the X800 series, I heard about it months ago. But will it work with all Sapphire cards, say a 9800 Pro too? I don't think it'll help anymore than ATItool can, but it's cool.

it might, as long as the pcb and everything is standard, but the temp sensors may be different, and detect wrong. If the card has auto throttling, that may cause some severe problems. Other than that, it should be about the same, aside from possibly varying ram timings, effecting the speed and overclockability.

make sure the ram matches!!!

I prefer ATITool over anything :) I hated TriXX when I tried it with my X800GTO2. Went back to the good ol' days and got the beta of ATiTool.

Yeah I use ATItool, too but it doesn't have the fan control TriXX has. I'd like to give it a try on my Sapphire X800Pro I bought back in July. Can it be downloaded from Sapphire or anywhere else? I would hope they wouldn't leave all of us hanging who have bought their products in the recent past.
