RBE hasn't been in development for quite some time. The author has moved on to something else.

Besides, who really needs to edit their BIOSes anymore when plenty of software overclocking tools are readily available?

Even when changing clocks would be not possible I still would like to be able to change voltages by editing bios (as possible on HD6900 series). That way I don't need resident app running to keep voltages as I want.

the problem is that the interesting parts of the bios are digitally signed. if the bios is modified the driver won't load.

cryptoanalysis experts contact me :)

GPU voltage is also an interesting part and on HD6900 series it's not signed :) too bad that the rest is...

hd 6000 series, too. amd doesnt sign the whole bios, only parts of it, so some things can be changed

Still no word on a way to flash a 7900-series card?

My Gigabyte runs at 1100MHz@1.130mV, but I'm having to use MSI Afterburner to get it to run at that speed. Would very much like to flash the bios. The board even has a bios switch so you can recover in case of a bad flash.

Any ideas?
