To tell ya the truth, i was just curious to see if i get lucky to unlock the shaders with 7970 bios because my club 3d hd 7950 is a well modified card with 8+6 pin pcie express connecter wich may be a fully hd7970 pcb, taking this fact into considaration it could unlock the shaders who knows.... ofc im 95percent sure am not gone be able to see extra shaders but who knows miracle can happen loll....
Hoping for the same here.
With Dual switch BIOS makes it easy. I run the same working HD7950 BIOS on both switches and when I experiment with flashing if a flash goes wrong I just boot to other switch and then put the working bios back.
Also I have screwed up on BIOS flashing on both positions and have done a blind flash without display. A little scary but can be done as long as you know the ATIflash commands which are simple.
Its not hard to flash just make sure you have a working bios on at least 1 switch at all times to avoid problems.
