The R9 290 -> 290X Unlock Thread - Page 43

post #421 of 4130
Hey, is there anyone around that can help? I may have just become the first power color 290 owner that has a card that cannot be unlocked frown.gif I'm truly gutted frown.gif

I just flashed the asus bios although it only worked if I wrote the command atifla~1.exe -f -p 0 asus.rom

Was that the correct way? It then went through the process of installing the new card in windows and gpuz says my bios is Asus but still the locked shader count frown.gif

Please tell me I am doing something wrong here!

The command syntax seems OK to me , so, maybe you got the "real "290 .

Kind of what i was worried about if you got a second batch of the powercolors they could be fixed by now.

This kind of thing happened before with the 6950s and i don't think it was supposed to happen ever again esp on the 290-290x.

Would not be that surprised if the next batches of cards all come unlockable.

hope not its a nice little bonus lol.

People are looking to be pretty close, and within margin of variation I'd say.
62.2 would still put you within range to be honest. I'm sure I could run it enough times and get around that or higher than what I got to a degree. What settings did you run ShaderToyMark at, that score doesn't seem right if you were running at defaults. To answer you last question my 4770K is at 4.6GHz, and might benefit slightly, but these tests should be mostly GPU dependent.

Is there anything else you guys would like to see?



Oooops I didn't mean to type 380 I meant 680 just a couple points behind your score.

Try another bios then.

Where did you get your card, mate? If you are Aussie and your card is from Skycomp, I'm doomed, too. Just order a pair from them frown.gif

It's official!

It's the end of the line for free 290x upgrades! I tried various different Bios versions as well as different drivers, in the end I removed the heat sink to reveal a 2020 chip!

Lame!!!
