    Enabling Hardware Masked Units (8800 GTS)?

    I have opened RivaTuner and saw that I have 96 units (which was advertised) well RivaTuner shows that I can enable more to get me GTX amounts (128).

    Has anyone tried softmodding their 8800GTS?

    its not going to happen. nvidia have disabled these by making laser etches in the hardware (if i remember correctly), and once the tracks are cut with the laser, thats that!

    sorry for disappointing you.

    5aboy is right as far as I know. Opening these masked units worked a treat on the nvidia 6800, but as above nvidia have put a stop to this.

    You'll be better off asking this over at Guru3D, the home of Rivatuner and ask in the forums - although Unwinder (the Rivatuner developer) usually gets pretty irate about these questions.
