they said that for now the first batches are 470's that have disabled units(ram as well)

makes sense. remember the first duallies that now dont unlock anymore for amd becauset ehres nothing to unlock?

if i were you and could find a point of view id buy it on the spot

I highly doubt the validity of that article, the chances that they were able to unlock ALL the shaders, ALL the extra RAM, ALL of the RAM bandwidth, and then get an overclock that big on the first card they tried would probably be less than 1%.

wouldn't that brick the card if it doesn't work, and void the warranty?

possibly, but on the very first batches till nv makes it impossible to unlock? id try my luck :p

make sure you erase eprom,then flash. if you reboot its over..unless you have a pci card handy.

they also say to get the reference boards, any custom design will have no extra ram to enable like on that unit (expense)
