You must have a Nvidia GPU before this make any sense to buy/install, right?
You may try to rename "ATIFLA~1.EXE" to simply "ATI.EXE" or something other similar (short name).
I've seen this work before.
Asus reference R290 (non x): 76.5 %. Seems it oc well - have maxed it out with Afterburner (1235Mhz).
Need some tweak to allow higher clock - Asus...
Ugly looking, probably one of the worst I've seen.
The mem-chips are different, also running at different speeds (1250 vs 1375).
Thanks, that makes sense. (sensor did not)
What's the purpose of the electrical wire inside the block (pic 6)?

For what it's worth (performance mode):
Switch it to position 2 and flash, worked for me.
Have you run a benchmark with both 1408 and (presumably) 1536 shaders and observed any difference in score? There should not be any need for...
Can confirm that ASUS EAH6950/2DI2S/2GD5 has bios 2 "open" and bios 1 "locked".
I've read some reviews at newegg claiming that bios 1 is the write protected and bios 2 the one to use for modding.
if I read Dog right, he flashed a 6970 bios on to a 6950 1GB card. How is that possible?
If anyone can confirm unlock of shaders - this will be my next GPU.
Nice review W1zzard.
Even with above avarage soldering skills, this should be very difficult to repair.
Have you tried to install the card? It might work, perhaps only...
Nothing to do with it.
Great review again, thx W1zzard! :toast:
Could you please show us the vcore readout point(s) on this pcb?
Hi, please have a look at this - it might be helpful. Atiflash/Winflash dosen't recognize the card any longer, thus OP gets 'Adapter not found'....
W1zzard, you will be missed.
All the luck on your future ventures.
Not at all, this chip is a good one (Powercolor PCS 1GB)
Voltmod vgpu 1.35V....

PM me, I'll send you a PDF of the guide (incl. images)
Hi, I got a Powercolor PCS 1GB bios that allow me to lower the voltage to the gpu. Lowering the 2D voltage confirmed using a DMM. The bios is edited...
Powercolor HD4870 1GB
This card is truly amazing :)
Under my Maze 4 the GPU is Crysis/3Dmark stable somewhere around 890Mhz.
Note: No voltmod...
Maybe, but the stock VRM cooler isn't copper - it's made of rather thin aluminium.
My DIY heatsink is heavier, and it keeps the vrm below 50...
Here's mine before and after :)
It does at least 850 on gpu - haven't had time to test it further.
Tried to take of the cooper...
