xl is acually 256mb XT. trying to get bios from..well...i dunno where. 512mb bios does not work. And yes, i tried. xl will get some surface mount parts as well as teh x1900xt's heatsink, which will be part of new watercooled rig.

crosffire without dongle works...but not visable difference...only bench scores.

GTO is R14 Rev520 silicon. Technically i already have one, as the x1800 line has been discontinued. no new cards under the x1800 monikor featuring full functionality...at least according to the bios....

From what I understand, it's BIOS locked, not hardware locked, so hopefully, it can be turned into an X1800XT/XL.

hopefully. but i think there will be more to it than that. a simple omiision of a few surface-mount parts means they can make it very difficult.

Don't worry...they WILL be harmed while testing. I killed one xl and one xtx already.

Dude, think of all the starving children in Africa!

Imagine what they could do with an X1900XTX.

Well, you could cook food on it for a start. Take that HSF off, and cook some meerkats on the core. You could heat a room with it. You can scratch your back with it. The uses are endless.

there wouldn't be starving kids in africa if there wasn't corruption. I doubt my XTX would have a large affect in bring that down.

and i doubt they need the heat...DSIO... it IS africa, BTW.

SO, lets get a full review going, maybe. I need some bench numbers from our nvidia owners...preferably by those with 2gb of ram.

Bernching suite to consist of...

DOOM3
F.E.A.R.
BF2
NFS:MW
Call of Duty 2
and Serious Sam 2.
as well as the standard 3dmark scores.

Anyone game?

If I could find some time, I might be able to help with that...

BTW: I'll trade you that X1800XL for this 7800GT

xl is faster than a GT, at least in my experience. You don't see 10k outta a gt in 3dmark05. but this is overclocked. stock, they fare about the same, dependant on application.

Yeah, just figured that you would like a 7800GT to toy with, and I saw your
05 scores with that XL, figured you would somehow forget...lol

I think I can get some scores for you sometime after 8pm EST...
Most likely on BF2, Fear, HL2, and Doom3.

I could just bump my CPU down to 9x245=2200mhz...that way you wont have
to underclock.

Wait nvm: Not overclocked....alright, misread the first time sorry.
