so this should be for 7950?
I think I've read that 7970 will all be stock while on 7950 AMD has given freedom to partners to clock / design cards...
the 6970 ram has higher voltage but I'm not so sure that it's set by the bios, or is it?
use a tool like gpu-z and check the logs to see if the core is throttling back during the bench
I'm just saying a lot of people always have to point out that this mod is dangerous cause the 6950 lacks the 8pin connector.
They should only...
guys you should stop useless speculations about this 8pin stuff.
my unlocked 6950 runs fine at 1025 mhz even at 1.4 volts on my 450w psu (2x6 pin)
Yes I only used the batch unlocker, don't know about the rest.
I'd also like to point out that the smart doctor voltage tuning works but gpu-z...
Make sure that the bios switch is in the "1" position

got the magic 1000 mhz with asus bios+unlock+smart doctor (voltage is 1.3v here)

I just downloaded an Asus 6950 bios, unlocked it with the script and flashed.
Now with smart doctor I can go past the panel oc limits and the...
you can go past the 950/1450 limit using an Asus card bios and the latest Smart Doctor
you can find asus 6970 and 6950 bios's in this...
wouldn't it be nice to change also the voltage to 6970's? after all the cooling is the same so it should be no harm and should help reaching 6970...
rui, is your unlock also setting the voltage to the 6970's reference voltage?
I have a Gigabyte but I'd love to flash the Asus bios for some Smart Doctor fun :D
Also, shouldn't we change the device id so that any software...
no doubt the unlock works, but we'd like to see if the artifacts were caused by the ram timings or the disabled simds were really defective
+1 on this!
I had artifacting with the 12a hotfix driver, reverting to cd drivers fixed it
I got P4344 with my E8400 @ 4200 and unlocked 6950 so your system is fine
I upgraded to the hotfix 12a drivers and it started artifacting, reverting to the cd drivers now...what about you guys? what drivers are you using?
Someone here maxed out the ccc limits (950/1450), mine seems to be fine at 940/1440.
Dunno how to go higher since MSI Afterburner has the same...
that's true, the artifacting that many people have could just be caused by the memory having problems with the 6970's memory timings
Just look at the graph in the article:
and I don't think that the installed drivers are different from 6950 to 6970, nor the driver...
You have the sawed off switch too?
some guys on other forum fixed the artifact uninstalling and reinstalling drivers
yes you can xfire it, in fact, you could even crossfire 6970 with a plain 6950 if I'm not mistaken
