I was wondering if you could give me the pcb number above the pcie card slot fingers... I think they are in gold. thanks
I have 2 xfx cards that i have been modding cooling for so i have been a bit busy.
the tool is similar to a clothespin design with fingers that grab the bios chip on one end and leads on the back to make the mod easy if its the hardwire mod. I saw it on guru 3d in one of the many posts.
nice find anyhoo.

sorry i meant to disreguard this post as you explainded after i started to post .. but thanks anyway.

I think you have to ask this to sapphire about this model
post #9 of 12
No, Sapphire's newer "Antilles" cores are based off of a gimped 6990 core via laser lock.

Only the Cayman core are capable of being unlocked via BIOS flash. These used to be marketed as the "Dirt3 edition" cards and mine would not give me a screen after reboot (before i sold it off heh).
6970: Cayman XT
6950 1st edition: Cayman Pro (i.e. BIOS locked 6970)

So unless you're extremely lucky to get a Cayman Pro core, dont think unlocking will work.
The only way to know if it's unlockable is if you can check in GPU-Z after you get it.
