Sapphire TOXIC HD-6950/70 Owners Club & Informational Thread - Page 42

post #411 of 1649
Hi I am new to overclock.net This is my first post on here I would like to say that this is a great forum I have learned a lot on this
site and I would like to thank everybody that contributes there help and experience to help others like myself when they
need help. So that being said. I am a Toxic for about a month now I have tinkered around with different settings to
see what this card can actually do. And for being new to these types of cards I am very impressed how this card can
handle. Now with the very limited games that I do have I don't have BF3 yet so i can't compare it to that game yet but with
FSX I get on a average 98 fps settings set to ultra high.... Now I know that is an old simulator but I have never maxed out
the settings before on that game ever so to me that's quite impressive. Also when I bought the card it came with a copy of
Dirt 3 which I am playing and i get between 88-93 fps on high settings. Now I should mention after installing the game I
did have problems with the my computer crashing when I tried to load the game but doing some troubleshooting I found out
that it was a driver issue I installed the 11.10 preview about a week prior to installing the game and I reverted back to the
previous driver I was using and I haven't had a problem since. Next week I will be getting BF3 and testing this game out
and I will post my results on that. Again I thank you all for all your post and to the Administrator you do a great job. and in
my closer I would like to become a member of this Toxic community

The Toxic has been deactivated on Newegg. Do they usually do this when it goes out of stock? Hoping they haven't been discontinued as I did want to crossfire after the new cards came out.

I ordered my Toxic on 10/17 from Newegg and mine does not have an updated BIOS. I also didn't see one on the website. Don't let that discourage you though, the fix is very simple.

Couple of things ...

 

Sapphire is trying to play BOTH sides of the coin with this TOXIC card ...

They GIVE YOU all of the tools to make it a truly special enthusiast's wet dream of a 6950,  we all know this by now specool.gif

 

They ALSO unfortunately claim they WILL VOID your Warranty IF you DO ANY OF IT, to get said performance gains.

This includes but is not limited to Over-Clocking, Over-Volting, Un-Locking, Flipping the Dual Bios Switch, adjusting Power-Tune, using TriXX, using CCC and or ANYTHING that will in any way alter the card from it's FACTORY preset conditions ... so says the email I received from their Tech Support Finally,

which btw ALSO included the same TWO "NEW / REPAIRED" BIOS's that others received via email attachments from Sapphire Tech Support.

 

Sapphire also it seems doesn't like it when we TALK ABOUT THIS in PUBLIC ... as you may have seen, some members got shut down when they tried to address it on the VGA Forums ... so I went and plastered it all over Sapphire Tech's FaceBook pages ... well they not only shut me down they DISABLED ALL CONVERSATIONS about ANYTHING to make sure I went away thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif 

Sapphire Tech Facebook.png

Those links back to Sapphire Tech Club's Discussion board no longer work and the Discussion board was removed it seems ...

 

Yet even though they didn't want to OFFICIALLY reply to me ... they DID send me that email, with the BIOS updates for the TOXIC.

 

182P04HX.T44   &  182P04H8.T44   both are  88 KB

I think these are the same two BIOS updates two of you posted back a few pages ago ?

 

In other words ... IF YOU WANT or think YOU NEED the New BIOS updates you should create a  SUPPORT TICKET  @ Sapphire Tech ... 

https://support.sapphiretech.com/presentation/tickets/tickets_new.aspx or send an EMAIL to Sapphire Tech ... Facebook@SapphireTech.com

 

Sorry but that's as much HELP as I can offer up at this time ...

Sapphire wouldn't be the only ones to use these tactics. They use this kind of tactic to cover the ass's from ******* futshing with their stuff. However Sapphire is the largest supplyer of AIT/AMD gpu's out there, So I wouldn't sweat to to much. Make them prove that you overclocked your card.
