I am also with the motion not to bother flashing it.
It's say focus on overclocking your CPU to 3.0Ghz+ for now.

is the purpose of flashing for a performance boost or just for lolz?

HD6850 can crossfire with HD6870.
No need to flash, but go ahead if you wanna try it, just make sure you have a backup of the original bios.
