6800gs unlocked to 6800gt
I exchanged my 6600GT for a 6800GS AGP today. I thought I would try riva tuner and unlock the other 4 pipes and 1 vertex thing. Well it seems to be working, fear works fine but is there a sure way I can test the card to make sure there are no problems?

Post a pic of rivatuner saying your gs has 16/6 pipes/vertex, i dont believe you can do this with the gs.
As for testing, benchmark it with the pipes enabled and disabled and see if your score increases.

The AGP 6800GS is an NV40... a native 16 pipe core.

Most AGP 6800GSs unlock perfectly, good deal if you ask me.

Hmm. I guess I'll give it a try as soon as my new xfx 6800gs arrives ;)

Re: 6800gs unlocked to 6800gt
does unlocking make the gs faster than the gt? i thought the gs was meant to perform close to the gt to begin with due to higher clocks.

Yep... the GS AGP is a NV40 core.
So most should unlock. :)
U have a 6800u with higher memory clock.
Good bang for the buck unless u can find a good used 6800u for a killer price.
I just found a nice 6800U with 425 stock core and Zalman plus a killer price.
My ultra does 450 core 1200 memory no sweat so my performance should be close to a unlocked GS. :D
