My friend told me about how you can unlock all 8 pipelines on these cards.(ATI Radeon 9500 128MB Non-Pro version)

I was wondering if that is still possible as I have not been able to find any guides on how to do it lately.

I need to know so that I can make my Video Card purchase.

Thanks in advance guys.

Just install Omega's drivers and choose the "hacked" driver (R9500-->R9700) when prompted.

Be sure to run a few benches before and after the mod to see if you're getting the use of the pipes.

Also, you'll need an R9500np on an R9700 PCB (The ram layout will be in an "L" pattern, not a staight line).

I've heard of several people still getting moddable cards.
