The R9 290 -> 290X Unlock Thread - Page 261

post #2601 of 4142
just got my XFX 290 Black Edition in the mail today.

ran some tools according to the unlock guide

got this

unlockable_zpsbeb637c3.png

"In short words:
1. If your card reads F800yyyy at Rx1 for all x, its either 290X or unlockable 290 (215-0852000). If it's currently locked you can unlock it by flashing stock 290X BIOS at your own risk. See also N3.
2. If your card have an extra '1' bit in F800 half of Rx1, your card is locked 290 (215-0852020) and cannot be unlocked via stock 290X BIOS.
3. If your card reads F800yyyy at Rx1 for all x and Rx2 reads F801yyyy, you have 290X chips locked by BIOS to 290. You can unlock it by flashing stock 290X BIOS at your own risk.
4. Non-F800 Rx1 may indicate real ASIC screening information. Please post here your dumps with non-F800 chips.
"

according to number 3, it is unlock-able.

before I go further figured i'd ask here :-)

Either way its Hynix memory Model is: R9-290A-ENBC

Your card reads F880 on Rx1 but at least you got a Hynix memory.

ya, i didn't know what to make of the 880. I know according to the guide its 800 it unlocks, if it is 801 its not. Mine is 880, so kinda a oddball.

I will likely attempt to flash it later today and see what results in it. Not really concerned if it unlocks or not. Coming from 7950 crossfire to a single 290 and the performance is the same is just awesome.

Still playing with the OC, once i find a nice stable OC I will likely just flash it into the bios for "stock" settings.

It has to be F800 for all 4 values for it to unlock - anything else is locked. Since your card has F801 for some of the values it will be locked, unfortunately.
