Gigabyte Radeon HD 6950 Reference Board?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is this HD 6950 a reference design? I'm planning on getting an HD 6950 and unlocking it to an HD 6970, which is why I need to know. If there's a better card I could get, that info would be helpful too. Thanks guys.

That's not reference.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814103202 is the only obvious reference card I see. You can also see the bios switch at the top in one of the pics.

If you can see the AMD logo on the PCB near the pci-e pins, and you can see the bios switch then you can be sure its a reference pcb.

I read through all the comments on that card and serached the web and multiple users stated that they unlocked the shaders on the card so I would take that into account. My non reference 6950 2Gb also unlocked easily and has a duel bios switch thumb.gif
