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

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

I want to update my bios to GHz Edition
all bios's I found not work with mine
I knew that I can just OC the card
but I prefer change the bios
i will be glad if someone could dump its bios for me
or even the OC one
Thanks
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...

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
