    Well, stupid move on my part. I flashed the BIOS on my Sapphire 4870 x2 last night to a later rev. Well, it artifact like crazy so I attempted to flash it back. I didn't know that the BIOs repository did not have the Slave BIOs for the rev I need. I'm looking for the slave BIOS that matches this rev:

    GPU Device Id: 0x1002 0x9441
    113-B50902-102
    R700 B50902 128K MASTER BIOS
    (C) 1988-2005, ATI Technologies Inc.
    ATOMBIOSBK-ATI VER011.007.000.000.030318
    S3B50902.102

    All I can find is this rev on this site for the slave:

    113-B50902S-105
    R700 B50902 SLAVE BIOS
    (C) 1988-2005, ATI Technologies Inc.
    ATOMBIOSBK-ATI VER011.007.000.000.030394

    When I load that together with the 113-B50902-102, I get BSOD when running a game. And the most stupid part is I didn't *BACKUP* my BIOs. I thought this was readily available on this site. So now I'm stuck.

    Anyone out there by chance have the 113-B50902-102 slave BIOS dated 9/23/08???

    I really appreciate any assistance!!!

    Thanks!!!

    I just pulled the file and loaded it up RBE and the BIOS version strings shows

    113-BA0902-703

    However, the AtomBIOs shows ATOMBIOSBK-ATI VER011.007.000.000.030318

    Do you think this will present a problem when I try and flash it??

    Well its not a match to the bios you have ask for but then it was very unlikely to be really.

    The bios date is 2008/12/11

    If you wonna try the master & slave bios of my card i'll get them saved & uploaded for you?

    I cannot say anything will go 100% perfect; but, it should work, as they are matching versions and it is the R700 B50902 SLAVE BIOS.

    If needed, here is the matching master bios:
    113-BA0902-702
    R700 B50902 128K MASTER BIOS
    (C) 1988-2005, ATI Technologies Inc.
    ATOMBIOSBK-ATI VER011.007.000.000.030318

    Well, just tried to flash it with this one:

    113-BA0902-703

    ATOMBIOSBK-ATI VER011.007.000.000.030318

    and ATIWinflash is erroring with "SubSystemIDs mismatch".

    What to do? Do I force it?

    Who is the subvendor on your master bios?
    You may have to modify the slave bios to match the subvendor. I believe you can do that with RBE.
