Not sure if it was replies from YOU GUYS or other people ... but at least there's some activity on the Facebook threads I posted the question/concern on ... I think we may have better luck via this route than on that VGA Forums Message Board wink.gif

That Looks cool ... and I know "Toxic Symbol / sign" usually might include 'GREEN' in it, and I was going to go this route ...
Toxic-Sign-Black-Wallpaper.jpg but it / the GREEN ... it looked TOO nVidia !!! so I went AMD RED devilsmiley.gifRedTOXICsymbol.jpg ...
plus I was trying to keep the Sapphire Logo colors in tact as well ... 1fueled-by-sapphire.png

I may just go for the 6970...it just seems like a huge waste of money...gah...this sucks lol!

Actually it's a BIOS issue not a "driver issue" so much, and it effects BOTH the Sapphire HD-6950 TOXIC and Sapphire HD-6970 cards ... and as OrangeBunnies said it's NOT REALLY something to get OVERLY CONCERNED about or Panic over ... there is the Work Around we can use as posted on Front Page and in the 2 reviews that caught this issue ... so there should ceratainly be no pause at buying either one of the cards as with the work around they will out perform just about anything anywhere near their price point to almost double their price. So they ARE great cards ... it's just kinda of a BS step that we kind of SHOULDN'T HAVE TO DO to get the maximum performance from the card. And IF you look at it objectively I can actually see Sapphires point that this is somewhat on the shoulders of AMD as well ... because it's an issue related to AMD's PowerTune technology and a cards Thermal Design Power ... these cards are just one of the first on the market that are factory stock POWERFUL ENOUGH to have this technology engage ... if you read the HEXUS review even THEY state, "Perhaps this is AMD's fault for setting too-conservative ratings". Anyways it's an EASY FIX, just poor forethought in that one needs to jump through unnecessary hoops to ensure that this card functions at peak performance.

Ya, I get the amd/sapphire color scheme and I think it looks cool as well smile.gif
I was just fooling around for some fun while camping newegg and clicking my refresh screen button on the toxic card page SIGH!?!

Maybe you could shrink that cool toxic symbol down and use it with the sig? biggrin.gif

Anyway, I am still planning on buying one when they become available....the bios power throttling issue is not annoying enough to stop me. I just don't like having to do something that technically voids the warranty just to make either the 6950 or the 6970 work as intended....that is just plain bad business. I am sure AMD or Sapphire will resolve this issue soon and provide a "real" fixed bios for everyone to use. Its not like I have a choice...nvidia has absolutely nothing I am interested in right now when it comes to value/performance.

hehe, There is only really one thing i dislike about the Txoci 6950....the PCB is going to look stupid when I water cool my rig...I have the all black UD3, sweet Blue RipJaw's and was hoping for a black 6950's...maby a backplate will solve this issue?

As for the bang for buck, my card stomps all over a single 580GTX in gaming right now:) it didn't take a whole lot of fiddling with to get there is what make's me happy.

Now when I am on OCN.net, I chuckle to myself when I see somone with a 580GTX or 580SLI set up in their sig... I have to stop my self from asking if they feel dumb for spending 500-1000 on GPU's when 280-500 would do better:)

EDIT: now the purple text make's since LA Kings Fan, lol.

Do you have Vsync on? And there is nothing to gain by running a higher than 60 FPS. the human eye cannot see past it. So your fine in all technicality!

Any game's that have Vsync as a video option should be used, as the human eye refresh's at about 60 Hz all you will be doing by making your GPU run past 60 FPS is creating more heat for the little guy.
Have you done the +20% mod to your card?

Higher FPS isn't JUST about LOOKS or what the EYE can see ... in some gameplay higher FPS unlocks the ability to function better in game, such as Call of Duty 4 ... I'm over 250 FPS and it allows me to do some wicked jumps and climb atop buildings and areas ... where guys running at 60 FPS can't ! wink.gif just a FYI.

That is why you cannot get past 60 FPS. Vsync will limit your FPS to your monitors refresh rate, so I can tell that your monitor is a 60Mhz refresh:)
If you turn off Vsync you would get past that wall of 60 FPS, but it is not advised! you will not notice a difference at all, unless your some kind of super human with uber epic eye balls:)

Thats why, vsync limits the fps to the refresh rate of your monitor. It has nothing to do with fraps. Just turn off vsync if you want more fps.
