79XX Backplate

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Quick question. Is the pcb the same between the 7970 and 7950? i.e. Would a backplate for a 7950 fit a 7970?

thanks.

Some of the ref cards do share the same pcb only diff being the 6+8 pin (some ! )

the pcb between a ref 7970 and 7950 is different the only difference is if you find a 7950 that has a 7970 pcb as mentioned

Fairly sure my card is reference Sapphire Dual-X 7970.

Not too sure what you are trying to say? What I get out of what you say is that some are different, some are the same.

So I guess the question is are the reference 7970 pcb and reference 7950 pcb the same?

He is saying you will NOT find a 7970 with a 7950 PCB
BUT
you WILL find a 7950 with a 7970 PCB

therefore being that You will not be able to use a 7950 back-plate
but if you had a 7950 you could use a 7970 and 7950 back-plate
IN MOST CASES!

no the reference 7950 pcb is different to the 7970 pcb.

what card do you have as some 7950's do use a 7970 pcb though

A 7950 backplate will definitely not fit a Sapphire Dual X 7970.

Early Dual X 7970's had reference 7970 PCB's so can fit a 7970 backplate but newer revision models are custom PCB and can not.
