Just got my HD6950 DC2 - Help!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, So i got a Asus HD6950 Durect CU II (it is the version WITH a bios switch)

I used Radeon Bios editor (RBE) to try and edit my bios file to unlock the extra shaders (only had to tick a box) However that shaders did not unlock even after flashing,
SO i decided to flash a full HD6970 DC2 bios onto the 6950, So it flashed successfully, My card is recognised as a 6970, all of the clocks speeds etc have updated, but the shaders are still stuck at a hd6950 level,
here are the GPU-z shots

second question biggrin.gif
Ok, So i am leaving it flashed to a hd6970 minus the shaders.
However
When i set my GPU core clock to 1000mhz
then i run a stress test
the core clock goes DOWN to like 500-800 and only goes upto 1000mhz every few seconds?

That's rough man. They maybe laser cut to ensure you can't enable them. I've not experience with the Asus CUII cards but it sounds like you did everything right. If RBE didn't work, I'm honestly not surprised that a full flash didn't work either though. Maybe someone here will have personal experience with these cards.

Good luck =/

128 shaders only give you 1-3% performance boost anyways.

The extra overclock you get from that card gives better performance than a reference with unlocked shaders anyways.

The memory is also different on the 6970.

I would set it back to stock and overclock like normal if I were you. I know there hasn't been any widespread card deaths from 6970 memory timings and voltages or whatever, but I'd stay on the safe side with my 270 dollar card and just overclock the old fashioned way. You'll get the same performance anyways.
