Modding the ATI Radeon X800 GTO² to X850 XT

Posted on Saturday, Sep 17 2005 @ 15:11 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
We recently got our hands on one of the new X800 GTO2 cards from Sapphire. These limited-edition cards use an R480 core from ATI, which is limited to run at 12 pipelines. We were surprised that these $200 cards can be easily modded to run at 16 pipelines. During testing, our sample could be overclocked to run at X850 XT PE speeds completely stable - $300 saved.
