Considering the 112 shader GTS is a G80 just like the old GTS: Anyone tried to flash the bios on an old 96 shader model yet?

I know people said it is prolly impossible to unlock shaders on the GTS but with this new card being not so new after all isn`t it worth a thought?

If you wanna fry your card or risk damaging it go for it, I want to know too, since i could use the extra pipes but i am not doing until its feasible or proven to work.

Good idea IMO, but i dont have the balls to try it. Took me forever to be able to afford my GTS:( . There has to be a way to "unlock" the extra shader units.

afaik theyre laser cut so enabling 112 wont do anything

Well same here. I don`t wanna be the guinea pig. ;)
I think there is a chance tho. Just need someone go for it. On mkvtech they are still waiting for the bios to be uploaded. If someone here has suche a new GTS upload your bios please. I am sure there will be someone willing to give it a try.

Considering it's been impossible to enable anything since the GeForce 7 series, I reckon nothing has changed. But please, anyone who's daring enough, go ahead. :p

There seems to be a brave sole!! MVKtech will try it, but he is waiting for someone to upload the stock BIOS http://www.mvktech.net/index.php?option=com_joomlaboard&func=view&catid=10&id=46772

I don't think it would fry your card ,it just more then likely want work if they are laser cut.You could try the GTX BIOS since it is the same but with 128 shaders and clocked higher ,but flshing a bios is always a chance of something going wrong.

There is a difference though. From what i can see the new GTS has the exact same PCB. The only difference "could" be the bios.
The GTX on the other hand is a whole diff card.

Thats what i heard too, but if they are "cut" would they show in rivatuner?

That true I don't know what I was thinking ,the GTX is alot different ,but the 8800GTS 640 with 112 shader ,the only real difference is the shaders and clocked higher ,but most 8800GTS 640mb with 96 shader will clock that high with no problems.They show them in Rivatuner but you can't make then stay just with a software hack.

Yep that's exactly what gives me (a little) hope.
I know the chances are small but i think it is at least worth a look.

isn't the new 112 shader GTS based on G92? or did i miss something?

No it's not. It's a G80 with more unlocked shader units.
Basically nvidia is selling of the leftover G80.
