Found this article on the net yesterday:

http://firingsquad.com/hardware/geforce_6800_unlocking/

I wondered if it was worth it and what would the performance gain be? In short, about 5-12%. In real-world terms, unnoticeable to barely noticeable. Is it worth it? Only if you are concerned about wringing out every last benchmark point and FPS possible. Otherwise, the stock cards still perform fine.

Anything that has the ability of rasing performance 10% or more is worth the effort as long as you are comfortable with the procedure used for the mod.

I just unlocked the 4th quad. Working flawlessly and scored 4453 on 3Dmark05.

I guess that article is right, but these guys are using 4xaa with 8xfsaa, it makes a difference for me since i only use 2xfsaa and 8xfsaa.
