    Hi

    Sapphire 7970 Dual X *Blue PCB [NON Reference design] update bios to GHz Edition is; *not possible

    Note: GHz vbios update released for reference design ONLY

    Example:
    ReferenceDesignHD79703GBPCB.jpg

    nb: continue to use third party software to OC the card

    Edit1:*If vga card has dual bios switch; is *unable to show video; boot with switch in position #2 *make a backup of the vbios;
    Next
    Change switch to position #1 and flash the backup vbios

    Edit2: Welcome to TPU

    atb (all the best)

    Welcome to TPU, LAW II's advice is always sound in these matters, cant go far wrong from there.
    Would you mind filling in your system specs?
    This can be done by going to the top of the page and clicking on User CP, and then on the left click on System Specs.

    Thanks

    Thank you
    I knew that it is NON Reference design
    and update bios to GHz Edition is not work for my card
    what I was looking for is bios from another NON Reference design from Sapphire
    I think these two similar to my card design
    so, maybe their bios will work on mine
    7970 DUAL X OC Boost - 11197-03-40G (950/5700, core boost 1000mhz)
    7970 Vapor X - 11197-12-40G (1000/6000, core boost 1050)

    and yes it has dual bios switch

    i just bought the oc boost and the only reason the card has the boost feature is because the card would not accept the ghz bios.... but it says that the boost feature is identical to the feature used on the ghz bios....

    i have the card but no working pc to up it for you.... check wizards bios collection...

    good luck...

    Thank you
    I already tried these bios
    http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/index.php?page=1&architecture=ATI&manufacturer=Sapphire&model=HD+7970&interface=PCI-E&memSize=0
    but all of them are old and not working with me

    I am looking forward to try your bios in future
