Again, you're trying to say altering the core configuration for better performance is unlocking while altering the memory configuration for better performance is not unlocking. You can't change the memory timings and voltages with just overclocking. Sorry to break it to you chief. helpinghand.gif

Then again I shouldn't expect anything less from someone who admits they are either blind or incompetent.

Wow. The amount of stupidity in this post is staggering. You failed to directly address a single point I presented, and then failed to provide any proof about the memory clocks or timings changing. I wasn't sure before, but I am now: you have no idea what your talking about.

Your referenced GPU-Z post shows no proof whatsoever. It shows the 6950 stock memory and then the 6970 memory defaults. Your a moron if you equate that to a voltage change or a timing change as you have no proof as I expected.

Look closely since you seem to have missed it every time. I quoted the same GPU-Z shot you referenced. You'll please note no volatges or timings. Only the default ram speed of the 6970 which the 6950 ram was (get ready for the correct word) overclocked, not unlocked, to. Since you still naively seem to believe you know what your talking about, let me reference Merriam and Webster's for you.

Unlock (Verb)
1
: to unfasten the lock of
2
: open, undo
3
: to free from restraints or restrictions
4
: to furnish a key to : disclose
intransitive verb
: to become unfastened or freed from restraints


And

Overclocking (Verb):
1:
changing the settings of a computer system so that the hardware runs at a faster speed than the manufacturer rated it for


Since you can at least read, I'll go ahead and assume you maybe able to comprehend as well. You don't unlock the memory on a 6950. End of discussion and your asinine attempts to justify your false assertions.

I'll be happy to educate you on how texture fillrates and memory bandwidth is calculated next if you want to argue those were unlocked as well. rolleyes.gif

Bottom line, flashing a 6950 to a 6970 changes the voltage to a 6970's defualt voltage and overclocks the memory. Feel free to present your opinion that the timings change as well, but since you have no proof whatsoever, don't try to present your opinion as facts. You'll just end up embarrassed.

If you mean either of them standard overclocked, the GTX570. If you can find a reference card of a 6950 with dual bios and a switch, flash the 6950 to unlock the shaders and hit 6970 clocks. It's almost as powerful, if not as powerful as the GTX570 for a lot cheaper.

I rest my case.

I don't think that thread really matters anymore since the title has been edited saying "no recent deaths, buy some 570s". plus the non reference 570s seem to hold up a lot better then the reference versions. just don't go over 1.15v and the card should be fine.

I went with the reference GTX 570 from EVGA. Very happy. It more than makes up for the performance lost with the GTX 460 SLI with more consistent framerates and much less heat and noise.

Thanks for the update OP. smile.gif

I would have gone 570 myself over 6950 even over clocked or unlocked to 6970 performance they are equal. Now over clock the 570 and you'll surpass it in performance.

Beside now your open to better 3D Vision if you so should choose with your gaming and movies. cool.gif

EVGA all the way. thumb.gif
