    A failed flash is easily redone by flashing back to the previous BIOS, but you'll need to have a PCI card on hand in order to flash a card with a bad BIOS. I suppose it's possible that flashing backs wouldn't disable any opened pipes, but it would be very unlikely.

    Ooh... Performance numbers on a different card in a pointless benchmark. Besides, that's a bull**** 6800GT score unless you ran under a lowered resolution or something. That's approximately the performance of a 7800GT or X1800XL.

    ATI's marketing slogan is "Get in the Game," not "meant to be played on ATI." That's probably why you didn't see it on any of your games. If you haven't purchased a game sponsored by ATI, then you either are a very casual gamer or have poor taste in games. Half-Life 2 and Tribes: Vengeance are a couple examples of excellent titles with the whole ATI "Get in the Game" logo. However, neither that nor "The Way it's Meant to be Played" are acually indicative of quality or performance. With many games the competitor's video cards have outperformed the sponsor's cards in the game. Both are marketing slogans, however they can also indicate that the developer is working closely with GPU manufacturer, which usually does result in better performance for their cards.

    Hey there,

    I recently picked up one of the third variant X800GTO2s, I tried to flash the BIOS using WinFlash1.05 with the BIOS provided in the top post, when I go 'Program' it says the new BIOS has a 'mismatched P/N'. The current BIOS is Ver009.007.001.004, with P/N: 11X-CC600ASA-001, the new one provided above is Ver009.010.001.011 with no P/N (I.e. 'P/N N/A). I'm not very keen on forcing it in case I have the same problems as someone else here that did the same thing, but with an R480 (supposedly). I am aware that these latest variants are supposed to be 16pipes enabled straight out of the box, however mine isn't. :( Any ideas??

    Oh, and bf2nut, the comments you made by themselves show you dont know as much as you make out, let alone they're hard to understand. :P
