Does anyone have a Sapphire Dual-X 7950 Non-Boost BIOS??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I just bought the Sapphire Dual-X 7950:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202006

I am going to crossfire it with my MSI Twin Frozr III 7950 Boost Edition and I have heard in more than one place that sometimes things can get a little glitchy when crossfiring two boost cards so I downloaded a non-boost version of the MSI TFIII BIOS, but I can't seem to find one for the Sapphire Dual-X card and I would just like to have them just so if worse comes to worse I can flash both cards to a non-boost BIOS.

Can someone help me find a non-boost bios that would work with this Sapphire card? Maybe even like a vapor-x bios or something. I'm not experienced with graphics cards bios's so if anyone would know where to find one that would be compatible with my card it would be greatly appreciated becuase if something goes wrong after I set up the second card I don't want to have to scramble to try to find it.

Thanks a lot guys!!!

you should not have any problems. install the 2nd card. disable CF and test the 2nd card at stock and overclocked. just max out power control to +20%. after thant run in CF at 1100 mhz. you should avoid flashing the BIOS if you don't face problems.

anyway this is the Sapphire HD 7950 950 mhz edition . this is a non boost BIOS. has the highest clocks for a sapphire card.

you can get the BIOS from sonda5 too
