The mod was done with an Galaxy 9600GSO with 8 mem chips (2 are disable), they flashed an 8800gt bios, and by doing so, it enables the 2 mem chips (512Mb total), 256Bit mem controller and the 128 shaders(8800GTS).

Now though, this can only be done with certain models. Namely the 9600GSOs that aren't on the standard configuration of the 8800GS/9600GSO. The only thing that is needed for it, is a 9600GSO with 8 memory chips, standard configuration is 6 memory chips, the extra 2 make it possible for this.

So then basically its on par with the 9800GTX after this flash? I guess nVidia will have to start laser engraving the die again :P (assuming thats still viable with the new architecture)

No. Why would it be? The 8800 GT isn't.

 

256-bit G92 with 128 stream processors... those are the same specs as the G92 8800GTS and the 9800GTX (along with slightly higher shader, gpu and mem clocks)
