Does anyone know any cards that are out that still unlock. I know a lot of cards don't unlock at all anymore because of new generation. I think BFG6800NU doesnt unlock anymore. I think I read that Leadtek A400 TDH still unlocks, is that true? Can someone help me out.

It's completely luck of the draw, even if you get a first-gen NU there's no guarantee it will work. I tried out a BFG card that did unlock successfully. But I lost all ability to overclock. It wouldn't even go 10 MHz over on the core and 20 on the memory without causing problems. Caveat empetor.

yes i understand that even with the chance of unlocking it is still, a chance, but which cards in their current generation (not old 1st gen) still have a chance of unlocking.

By luck of the draw, I meant that it's the same among all brands. The odds are going to be less than 50/50 of getting a good one regardless of what brand you buy.

The new rivatuner unlocks the new cards with a very high success rate.

That's the good news

The bad news is that even if you unlock the pipes, they could probably

a) won't work
b) work partially
c) won't overclock
d) become unstable
e) all of the above
f) none of the above
