Well, although not all RADEONs are mod-friendly and we can do nothing about it, we can try to reduce the risks to damage a graphics card when trying to turn the RADEON 9500 into full-speed RADEON 9700 or even RADEON 9700 PRO graphics cards.

Now you do not have to solder, use conductive glue, to flash a new BIOS and so on. A smart software developer has found a way to enable all eight rendering pipelines of the R300 VPU by modifying the drivers. In fact, the main idea of this “mod” is, again, in changing DeviceID of the graphics processor. In all previous cases we either forced the DeiviceID by soldering the appropriate resistors, or modified it in the BIOS. However, since the driver of the RADEON 9500/9700 graphics card reads the ID from somewhere, there is a lot of sense to simply modify the driver itself, what just was accomplished a few hours ago.

Now all you have to do is to change a number of files of the currently installed ATI drivers on your system and test your graphics card. You can get more instructions and the files themselves from this page. Check if you have the appropriate version of the ATI RADEON drivers and backup your current files – in case the modification is not successful, you can easily return your graphics card to its normal condition.

Good luck!
