Why wouldn't people want to try and unlock their MR9800, especially if the pipes do work? We will never know until we actually try to jump the laser cut and load an accurate bios that will make it mobile with the full x800xt 16 pipes. It has the potential according to experts. We will never know until we try. If we don't try, we will be forced to submit to manufacturers for newer laptop. I for one shelled out enough money for the XPS, and am not complacently willing to loose a lot of money when we can crack this baby. If the pipes are defective, then at least we tried. I am willing to risk my card, but again I stress we must assuredly have a working bios capable of handling all the necessary differences from the desktop R420 and the mobile R420. I know the mobile has to support the onboard video for our lcds, and it has to handle the power differences (if any). There are obvious differences, but less we forget they are the same core R420.

of this forum, the MR9800 registers 160 million transistors. On http://www.tomshardware.com/mobile/2...n_9800-02.html
the article states the MR9800 having 110 million transistors. There is a big difference of 50 million transistors. What does that tell you?
