    I wouldn't trust that these are guaranteed to be unlockable. Only a few model numbers of Sapphire 6950 2GB cards such as my 100312-3SR were, and even if some SKUs had a BIOS switch it was random if they did or not.

    Great price for Crossfire though.

    I think they are unlockable, according to Amazon's reviews of this exact model number.

    even if they are not unlockable OC to 6970 speeds pretty easily. shaders aren't all that important from experience, as long as you are higher end like 6950 it's plenty enough.

    Nice price and 2GB vram :toast:

    However, these look to be built on revised PCB's (i.e. cheaper)....only 1 crossfire connection on them like a 6870 :shadedshu

    I almost sent back my 7970 cause of this deal. Not worth it though. I would lose to much money in the restocking fee + shipping fee.
