alright unlocking a video card

Flash the Bios to another videocard (Eg flashed a x850 pro to the x850 xt/.pe bios)

This will turn the x850 PRO into the x850 XT/pe's clock speeds and pipelines.

if u can unlock ur video card, u can then flash the bios with another one, one for a better card. then u unlock more pixpipes and i think newer technologies, but u will probably have to underclock the card, because more heat will be produced.
