Read this article today about the Radeon HD 7950 being delayed until Febrary AMD Radeon HD 7950 delayed until February and I got to thinking....

The Radeon HD 7950 is based on the same Tahiti core used in the higher-end 7970 except that four of the card's GCN (Graphics Core Next) compute units have been disabled.

The Radeon HD 7970 packs 2048 Stream Processors with a 384-bit memory interface, the Radeon HD 7950 will feature 1792 Streaming processors on a 384-bit interface as well.

Wondering if a 7970 BIOS flash would open four of the card's GCN (Graphics Core Next) compute units on the 7950 that have been disabled to 7970 performance?

AMD Radeon HD 7950 specs leaked, price still unknown

It would make the people that are complaining about the 7970 being too highly priced happy.

There's no way of really knowing until someone gets their hands on one. It would be interesting to see an unlockable 7950...

Turns out from Overclockers.co.uk -

So even though according to GPU-Z the shaders are not unlocking, flashing to the Asus 7970 BIOS is definitely giving a performance boost, though its not quite at genuine 7970 performance levels, kind of like half way from the results.


Not a shader unlock than more of a performance level unlock, still impressive.

Yeah im pretty sure they wont allow the unlocking of shaders again. It made the 6970 pointless and everybody who paid $100 extra for one ended up getting screwed.

If you pay extra you really should be getting extra. Otherwise AMD set a precedent where theres actually no point in buying top tier products.

edit: its been pretty much confirmed they wont be unlockable anyway

Sounds like a TDP unlock then.
