same device id does not mean "reference design"

ALL HD 7950 cards, no matter the design have the same device id
Dude, you've quoted something I haven't said - click on the link against my username in the quote. Editing snafu, methinks. :)

lol :laugh:

btw, I thoroughly disapprove of your new title. I think Evil Tyrant was much better and I might just adopt the quantum version of it on my forum. :D

I use a Sapphire reference card and this flash worked fine. :confused: What process did you use to flash your card?
Funny how he never responded back, I call derogatory speech out of that person. COUGH Libel Cough

I still want the power boost this bios should bring. I am wondering if the fact that I did not unlock the rom beforehand caused the update to fail.
I have some adventurous bios update for a 7850 on youtube, and it worked apparently fine by switching to the 2nd bios and unlocking it.
