Overclocking, Unlocking: Asus 6800XT (AGP)

  1. Hello,

    I have just bought an Asus 6800XT, 128MB (AGP). I need some help in overlocking it and unlocking pipelines and vertex shaders.

    The original specs in this video card is 8 Pipelines and 4 Vertex Shaders, but i have recently unlocked 4 more pipelines and 1 more vertex shader, upgrading my card to 12 pipelines and 5 vertex shaders. Everything is running perfect, no artifacts on the screen!

    I want to know if i am able to raise the pipelines to 16 and vertex shaders to 6, is it safe?

    Also the engine speed is 300MHz and memory speed is 700MHz, should i raise it a bit?

    Thanks,

    Cossack

    It has 16 pipes but that doesnt mean all are good. You can use Rivatuner to unlock all 16. If some are damaged you can just disable them again. Download Coolbits. Its will ad clock speed adjustments to the driver control panel. You should be able to OC the core. Ive gotten regualr 6800's up to 400 core. But they seem to run better at 375. http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=815
