Asus DCII 6950 overclocking - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I unlocked the shaders successfully.
e29.png
I used the method where you modify your own BIOS (Link), I guess thats why my Pixel Fillrate and Texture Fillrate is different to the guys who used a HD6970 BIOS to unlock. I was scared about the affects to the VRAM.

I will overclock later this day, but I think I'm not going to post the results here, I will post them in the official HD69xx or official DCII thread.

Thanks for your help guys!

For the first timer, you have done a good job and that worthy of a Rep.

NOPE ... your Pixel Fillrate and Texture Fillrate (and Bandwidth) is different because you're not OC'd to HD-6970 levels YET ...

they adjust based off your core & memory clocks as well ... you unlocked the shaders ... but still have your default core & mem clocks, so once you hit 880 / 1375 / 1536 your fillrates should match with that of the 6970 as well, and above the more you can overclock ... Like my GPU-Z below.

And CONGRATS  thumb.gif on doing what some say couldn't be done.  rolleyes.gif

BTW ... sorry pwnography6 but I also was going by what I have read / researched / etc. so I knew that card COULD potentialy unlock ... though I admit I assumed he had the 2GB card, not the 1GB version that I guess you have and didn't get lucky unlocking ... I know the 1GB cards have a lower potential to unlock from what I've read, but I do know some have even unlocked the shaders on the 1 GB HD-6950's as well so IT CAN BE DONE ... just the chance of success goes down. No Hard Feelings I hope. cheers.gif

Okay, I noticed it while I was overclocking today.
I reached:
Core clock: 930Mhz @1,1V (Standard, I have to increase the Core voltage I guess, but Im scared of the lifetime affects (?) I have to use this card at least 2 years I think. Temps load: 64°C for one second, rest was switching between 62°C and 63°C, fans at 14%)
Memory clock: 1350MHz (limit of MSI Afterburner, where also my next questions is about.)
As I modified the BIOS, I saw that I can raise the values, is there an other way to raise at least the memory clock limit?

Sorry, I thought I could finish this thread, but I need your help in this topic again.

Okay thanks man!
I finally reached 930\1430 @ 1,1v, because I don't want to increase the voltage.

Thanks to you all.

Hi everybody,


I've followed GroundZero300's steps and I've modified my DCUII 6950 2Gb shaders (bought in december'11). By the moment, it's running at 775/1250/1.1V/37ªC (idle) in a TJ08 case and I'm going to perform some benchs.

I've 2 little (I hope) issues for anyone interested:

1.- My system shuttdown when I "clicked" the save BIOS button at GPU-Z (It has been the only crash in 2 months...).

2.- The CMD procedure wasn't successful, but it worked using ATIWinflash in a windows environment.

Just a question: ASUS SmartDoctor, sometimes, shows 1.893 V (instead of 1.1V). I suppose that it means 1.0893, isn't it?

Thank you very much,


---
