That my friend is an NV41 (new 6800), the same GPU used in your fancy new SLI cards. :P Too bad you can't unlock the pipes on those babies.

Now what did I win?

Correct! Unlocking, yes, I've been looking into that. I noticed that this NV41 looks quite a bit different than mine. Granted, the one in that pic is of a 256MB card (it is without the HSI bridge chip as is mine of course) but the core should essentially be the same.

If I remember correctly, you cant unlock the 4 extra pipes because it doesn't have em. Nvidia created the NV41 as a 12 pipe chip to stop people from unlocking the 4 extra pipes.

I'd heard that too but when I saw the physical differences between mine and the one from the review last winter at gamepc.com I began to wonder a bit.

Here is a comparison of the two. The areas circled in red indicate connection differences and the yellow area indicates a new point altogether. Maybe it's nothing worth discussing but now that I'm looking at them closer I'm curious.

I wonder what the difference with Revision Ax and Revision Bx where x is the number? I never seen cores with Revision B on it.
