^^ this --- and even if it DOESN'T flash right -- you can always flip the switch, go back, no harm no foul. You'll want to do some stability checking after you unlock --- as was mentioned the memory clock can be scaled down if you find you are a bit unstable after the unlock. And hey, 98% being successful on supported cards might be a lowball. Make sure you aren't dinking around when doing the flash --- read the instructions 4x and you should be fine. Good luck with your purchase, whichever you decide to go with. Come back and let us know what you go with! I'm sure I'm not the only curious one!

Who would even bother flashing a 6950 for 1280x1024???
post #23 of 52
I went with a 560 Ti since it's much better for BC2 (and hopefully BF3) than the 6950 and AMD in general.

Maybe for resale value when the OP buys the card, realizes he is getting 500+ fps at such a low resolution (all while his screen limits him to 60fps max), and then sells the card to get something like a 5770 or 6850...

Just a thought~

In higher resolutions 6950 is faster.

Looking at those charts - in all honesty here (sorry if this offends) but those fps are so freaking close together that using that game alone as a deciding factor doesn't make a lot of sense to me. These cards are like less than what? Im not going to do the math but lets just say --- 5% difference? I think if that alone was the game that makes the decision - you have to just toss both cards into a price search and pick the cheaper one~

Maybe its just me - but I see very little difference and clearly not enough to make any kind of solid statement about a card you will most likely be using for years. This game's benchmark shows me nothing of significance in either direction.

tbh i've owned both and both are great.

I own a 6950 but have always gone with nvidia in the past. I would love to see how a 560ti or 570 compare but i'd only go with whichever is better whilst gaming as they are a simular price and i don't really care which brand it is at the end of the day.

AMD 's drivers are pretty much sorted now so its just a case of which offers better performance for money

Plus the TFII get a higher % boost from overclocking than similarly priced 6950 1gb. They're close but the 560 Ti is the better card for BC2 @ 1080p, I've actually had a 6950 gb in my rig and found it to be a bit slower in BC2 albeit faster in lots of other titles.

They're really close but I found more reviews favor the 560 Ti for bc2..

Im actually getting 60 - 100fps everything maxed in BBC2 with my 6950 which is higher than most of those reviews
