Giga 3XX cards seemed locked indeed.

That's been my experience and also what I've read. Which is why I'm wondering if the BIOS from another 390X will unlock it.

I suppose I could be the guinea pig. lol

Anyone have a modded bios for 290x Tri-X OC? I have hynix memory, I did the bios flash from OP and that went fine, but clocks are lower than my stock OC bios of 1040Mhz and 1300 memory. I'm on water, so I don't mind voltage plus maybe 1120 core and 1400 memory... I'll look into bios modding myself also. Thanks!

Hi guys!

I just received a brand new R9 290x Tri-X OC with 8Gbytes of VRAM (from Alternate Germany). The PCB seems the same as Sapphire R9 390X Tri-X 8Gb, and the default speeds are 1020 / 5500 (1375Mhz). Every resistor / capacitor / solder point is the same as the R9 390X 8Gb Tri-X from Sapphire.

Can I flash an unmodded Sapphire R9 390x Tri-X bios on it? Or do I have to flash one of the "no memory mod" bios of the first post?

I think that there would be no problem as overclocking this beast to R9 390x clocks is easy (due to higher default clocks compared with 4Gb 290X). From what I read on different reviews, they reach 1100mhz on the gpu and 1550-1600 on the mems with no effort.

I didn't mount the card yet on my rig (Im at work right now) ,but I plan on flashing R390x bios on it in a few days when first testing is done.

Regards,
Paco

Look back a few pages for fyzz's bios.

Verify the memory chips if identical.

A direct flash might do.

Thanks a lot for your help. Is there any way to check them without disassembling the heatsink? Maybe reading my bios? GPU-Z?

Paco

Thanks, this looks to be it. I'm afraid those clocks may be too high, I've only tried 100mV with 1200 and I got artifacting. I'm reading up on modding the BIOS myself, I'd have to edit the core, memory and add some voltage too.

I can't find the link but you can check the 290 Unlock thread for the CUInfo or Hawaii Memory Reader

I believe, 8GB versions have Memory chip at the back. So maybe you can see them.

Scroll back some more.

No problem. Thats all the info I need to check them. Thank you!!!! smile.gif

I will post later when I arrive home and replace my old 6870 1Gb with this beast con my 1440p monitor.

This card uses a non-reference PCB (but still the same as R9 390x Tri-X PCB) and there arent mem chips at the back.

As you can see, the PCB is exactly the same:

Sapphire R9 290X Tri-X 8Gb (new edition with 6VRMs instead of 5VRMs, and supporting 240AMPs instead of 200AMPs)



Sapphire R9 390X Tri-X 8Gb
