You can find out by opening up GPU-Z and in the 'GPU' box you will see either Cayman or Antilles. Good luck and let us know.

I beg to differ, you said it was only Antilles, yet mine is Cayman and it works.

This is what I said.

Enjoy the card, great performance.
I think you misunderstood because I'm right. A 6950 is Cayman design which most unlock.

The Sapphire Dirt3's have come with Antilles design either by accident or on purpose due to over stock which are really for the 6990's only. In doing so Sapphire laser cut the boards to disable the shadders which make the board unlockable.

So far every 6950 Dirt3 by Sapphire that shows Antilles in the GPU have been unsuccessful to unlock.

Did you understand this explanation better?
