sapphire 6950 to 6970 help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hey, i flashed my 6950 to a 6970, but i wanted to know if i reinstall a brand new copy of windows 7 64bit, will i have to redo that flashing?

because i dont no if the graphics card will always stay flashed for life, or just untill i reinstall everything because that means the drivers and everything should go back to normal right?

You won't need to re-flash because you flashed the card's BIOS, so it's flashed for life

Yes there is, you flick the bios switch on the card, which uses the back up bios.

You can flash it back. Unless your card has duo BIOS, then just switch.

One of the more interesting features of the HD 6900 series lies in the inclusion of a small switch next to the Crossfire connector. This controls the Dual BIOS function which will allow a user to switch between a pre-defined reference BIOS in Bank 1 and a custom BIOS in Bank 2. By default, both BIOSes on the reference cards will be set to default values but it shouldn’t be long until overclockers are releasing hacked BIOS files for increased voltage, fan speeds and other items. This switch can also act as a fail-safe in case a BIOS flash goes wrong since it can be used to load the default bank without having to resort to any extreme measures.
