Unlocking the pipes helped quite a bit. With the mod, stock, I score about 3400 in 3dmark05. OC'ed to X800 speed, my card performs on the same level as an X800. The highest score I've gotten in 3dmark05 is roughly 4400, and that's still with some more OCing headroom. Unlocking the pipes definatley gave me a 1000+ boost in 05.
EDIT: But still a 6818 in 05 on a laptop is insane.
