Default Re: NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT quick look

Just a note: Unwinder claims that these cards can't be unlocked. When pressed ("Were they lasered?") he replied with a "Something like that." Considering he wrote RT, and that's what one uses to unlock pipes (unless there's some new proggie), I think it would be fair to assume he isn't lying.

The Thread:

Until further data emerges, I'd be seriously careful about counting on even having the possibility of unlocking these cards.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.
