Activation of cores in Hawaii, Tonga and Fiji (unlockability tester ver 1.6 and atomtool) - Page 62

post #611 of 1392

Thanks but I already tried that one. atiflash just says "Flash already programmed". I assume the tool is telling me im trying to flash the same bios which is the OC version.

Thanks in advance!

Here you go

My backup.

I just flashed with this bios and its acting like the low power version. Running furmark it wont go over 75C and the clocks never reach 1000. The clocks hover around 950. The VDDC is also lower than normal. Are you sure thats the left bios posted?

This one is behaving as expected, so they are backwards. Thanks!

Where do you see the VDDC reading?

Edit* I found it in GPUZ. What should it be on load? Mine fluctuates between 1.1375 and 1.1438v

I used gpuz to monitor the cards behavior.

This is just based on my testing but the low power mode bios never goes above 1.15v. The high power mode bios will try to stay at 1.15 but will occasionally spike to 1.16x. Using the OC left bios it would hover between 1.16x - 1.18x and occasionally spike to 1.2xx during load. Furmark was used for all of the load testing.

4low?

seeing as 4 low nor 4 high will provide you with an usable unlock you will have to do what steffoon did to get an useful unlock as quoted below you could also try all on an whim and hope that it works thumb.gif

From this info SE2 appears to be messed up on CU 2 and 3. I tried a complete unlock (as if...) but got artifacts all over the place. Normally I would stop but since some had luck doing a full unlock with disabled CU outside the last 2 I decided not to give up yet.
I slightly modified the python script to be able to unlock different CU than the lowest 2 and get the following result without any issues so far:

-snip-

The small modification is on line 318 of the python script to allow the bit value of the CU columns you want unlocked. Anyone with a basic knowledge of bit manipulation can unlock additional columns this way.

In the end I'm happy that I got a partial unlock but I still find it strange why some apparently random units which appear to be working fine are locked. Anyone with an explanation?
You can't just unlock any which CU you want. You have to unlock at least four. You can't unlock one, two or three. You HAVE to unlock four. Due to the way the core is designed it has to remain symmetrical. You can unlock less than four. But you won't get any performance benefit as the core will bypass the unlocked odd CU's in order to remain symmetrical. So if you can't unlock at least four. Then don't bother wasting yer time. And unlocking two from one SE and only one from the others won't work either simply because now the SE's are not symmetrical. So yeah. Not gonna work.

Salutations cannot thank you enough Alastair!

I think I will hold back for now as I am run into a big trouble with the rest of my system. However, as I finish with that will be following your advice strictly!

TX software is one of the main reasons I sold my 980 and went back to radeon, which I was away since my 9500 back in the day I could turn mine into the 9700.

(Edited for typos)

I wonder if this will give a better OC.
