Please stop recommending 6950 unlocks - Page 3

post #21 of 35
if the shaders can unlock, you have a 6970 as they are the same chip. even if theres better vram I doubt theres much difference, if at all. My "talons attack (gay name i know) has better vram than the normal 460 and I really dont think it makes a difference

This should clear things up on the performance matter
Thank you.

Early reference 6950s had a 99% chance to unlock, and when unlocked and clocked at 6970s speeds were identical to 6970s.
My mistake. I'm sure you know a lot more than I do about this, but at the time when the 6950s were all the rage on this forum, I remember seeing a lot of users post their own benchmarks, then adding disclaimers at the end, saying things like "do so at your own risk" and "unlocking is not guaranteed" and "you could brick your card". If it's as guaranteed as everyone makes it out to be, why the cautionary disclaimer?

I'm really not trying to start an argument here. Again, I'm sure you know more than me. Just trying to learn.

I can overclock much higher than 6950 unlocks can, so I'm happy to have paid 580 instead of 550.

MSRP at launch was $299 for 6950 and $369 for 6970.
For most users $70 isn't worth the minor potential/random headroom provided. 950/1500 is not outside of the realm for 6950's.

No, but remember I am at stock volts, I've never seen a 6970 do that, and I've only seen one go over 950/1500. I paid 580 for both, so I paid less than 6950s in most cases, both BNIB.

1500 on the ram is way outside the realm of the 6950.

Don't go by what a bunch of noobs on this forum say they can overclock too. Half of the people overclocking are only running furmark for an hour and calling it stable. And most of them don't even know what ddr5 memory error is.

1500 is also way beyond the realm of ref 6970s, which generally overclock like horse manure. At this point, I'd reference your latter point as well.
