Asus x850Pro PCIE Fuse
Please help me to check it is possible to flash it
VGA HIS Excalibur X800GTO IceQ II Turbo, 256 GDDR3
I got this card. When I check ATiTool. all seems OK to unlock pipelines.
Config_Die/substrate_fusses: F where have to be.
Should I use Saphire or connect3D bios to flash? Or is there a moded His bios.
Card is some new revision. I aplied guarantie and card new card came today. It has some aditional power conector, which old card haven't.
What do you think?
doesn't work for me
well i followed all the instructions...tried 3 times doesn't change pipelines...even though its sapphire gto2, r480 core and all the F's are at right spot...well i checked the instruction like 4 times.. i matched everything it just doesn't work..used flashrom..
I bought the blue PCB Sapphire X800GTO 256MB R480 core from Newegg and I tried to flash it by using these commands:
atiflash -s 0 x800gto.bin
atiflash -f -p 0 x850xt.bin -newbios
atiflash -f -p 0 x800gto.bin
But it did not work. It still has 12 pipes.
Here are the screenshots from ATITool:
I confirmed that I have the R480 core but it did not enable the 16 pipes. I used the Sapphire X850XT AGP BIOS to try to unlock it but it did not work.
jaime go to this link: you will find what you need
Holy tish! It worked! 16 pipes unlocked
Is this the box a blue PCB Sapphire X800GTO comes in. As i am assuming this has the R480 core, and thus froggers link helps
No, that is a Full Retail X800GTO2 box. The one I got from Newegg is a Lite Retail box that looks like one in this link: Newegg Box Image
Search for "100131L BLUE" at Newegg to get to the page for the correct card.
.... It appears i have the sheep in wolfs clothing, my prognosis is based on the lack of an onboard power recepticle. Does anyone concur~
Anybody know if this card can be unlocked? From what I have read I think not, but I bought it because of budget. (don't have it yet)
Up to now I don't remember even single one PowerColor X800GTO unlocked to 16 pipes. (R430 and R480 models). It is better to look for Sapphire.
Well for $87 my budget says go this way for now and upgrade next fall.
Well the card sucks bad low fps even with the oc 3d mark gives it 760.
I have a red Sapphire GTO2 Limited Edition with the following specs:
Device ID 5D4F
chip Name R480
Host Interface PCI-E
Catalyst version unknown
Memory Size 256MB
Memory Type DDR3
Memory Bus Width 256bit
Active Pipelines 8
Default GPU Clock 400.00Mhz
Default Mem Clock 490.00Mhz
I checked to make sure that on the card it says in big bold letters Sapphire GTO2 Limited Edition since mine indicates it has only 8 pipelines.
I noticed that everybody else has 12 pipelines to start with and mine only 8.
When I did the mod, it stays at 8. My thought is it can't be upgraded, just overclocked.
Wtf Send It Back!!!!!
ID send it back or return it to store asap.Its defective or ATI toll is reading it wrong! one of the other. But first download 3d mark 03 i think .Run it, and u should score between 11-16,000.If not RMA it or return it.Note 3d mark 05 should score between 4,500 and 7,000 if im not mistaken.This will let u know if your card is running great good or like SH*T.
Well, can't return it, bought over a year ago. But I didn't load the drivers first. So, after flashing the BIOS a second time, I now have 12 pipes!! Gonna check 3Dmark05 to see how it runs there....hate this weird stuff!!
Actually, I think that Sapphire GTO2 limited edition has 8 pip only, If your card is special edition or platanium(sapphire GTO2) so they have 12 pipelines. I have a shapphire GTO2 special edition 12 pip DF and I unlooked it from 12 pips to 16 pips
I believe you are right...after flashing and loading the drivers, the LE version only gets 12 pipes...sigh...thanks for all the help!!
I Need So Much Frekain Help
I bought a Sapphire X800 GTO 256MB AGP off Newegg. I had ever intention of over clocking it. When I got the card I physically checked it to verify that it was a R480 and it was. In fact, it is the same exact card as the one in this post: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=152674&postcount=1805
Also, I was having the same exact problems. No matter what syntax or commands I used the card would simply not flash.
"jamie" seems to have gotten it to work for him with the assistance of a moder. I have attached a rip of the bios on my card. Can someone please help me out and mod it? Thanks a bunch. (I pulled it using ATItool)
Anyone know where to buy the now discontinued Arctic Cooling ATI Silencer 5 Rev. 2?
I haven't been able to find it anywhere online.
Or perhaps there is a better product out that deprecates this?
My fan just recently has started making a whirling noise.
Please, sorry for bumb this discussion, but its very important for me, excuse me please.
Mi card POWERCOLOR X800GTO 256MB 256BITS PCI-EX Can be modded?
Thanks a lot.
your fuse data matches the OP exactly. This is in fact a good candidate for the mod. Good Luck!
Thanks sneekypeet. Can someone help me with the specified mod for this vcard?
Again Thank a lot XD
sorry for the delay, have you ever flashed a card before? Do you understand the risks of a mistake?
No problem for the delay. Im a complete Noob flashing a Vcard. Can you tell me the risk of a flashing failure? Thanks
weill since you have never flashed you could make a paper weight in the worst case. There are ways to recover from a bad flash, but being you are new to the opperation, it may be a little beyond your realm of comfort.
Be sure to read this and other threads and get a good grasp on flashing. If you have any specific questions along the way feel free to ask.
I, myself, am not the greatest with flashing things, but I can get by. If I can do it, it cant be all that bad
I will see if I can find a link to Dolfs boot CD, that makes things a bit easier.
