Default Soft modding X800PRO....

I know that ATI found out about this and corrected it, but my friend said it still worked on cards that had VIVO....is this true?

X800 PRO comes with 12 pipelines, it is capable of 16, but 4 of them are disabled in the bios....

LOL It's like the NVstrap softmod with RivaTuner and the 6800 NU. That's what I did. I softmodded so that it has "16 pipes and 6 vp's'.

Ban you don't know what soft modding is???? It's basically opening up the pipes and stuff if the card doesn't already have 16.

Actually the softmod is to fake out the BIOS into thinking that it has 16 pipes and lets you OC better, but most card manufacturers hardware lock the pipes which can't be opened at all.

I always find it funny when people spend hundreds of dollars on stuff then they screw around with it
