Default Unlock 6800GS pipelines

How do you unlock the last 4 pipelines on an E-VGA 6800GS? And how do you flash the bios on that card?

I thought you could get it to the speeds of a 6800 Ultra.

you can, by overclocking it. Don't believe there are any extra pipelines to lock in the first place on that card.

Aww that sucks, so then there would be no point in flashing the bios on that card correct?

I was reading that Nvidia has taken extra steps this generation to prevent people from unlocking cheaper cards to more expensive ones. I don't think the 7800GT can be unlocked to GTX either.

Wow that sucks, then what exactly does a bios flash do for the card?
