  1. i am about to buy a powercolor 9800SE 256MB and i know that it can be softmodded to a 9800PRO on some chips. i have also heard that if your chip is defective on which 4 of the 8 pipelines have been damaged it can produce a checkerboard effect or put multicoloured dots over your screen.

    Does anyone know if this softmod can be reversed if it is unsuccessfull??

    Thanks in advance

    The modifications are only done in the driver so if it doesnt work you just uninstall the softmod driver and install the ATI Catalyst driver.
