Activation of cores in Hawaii, Tonga and Fiji (unlockability tester ver 1.6 and atomtool) - Page 74

post #731 of 1392
Question: will I void the warranty if I brick the card after unlocking it? I have a new ASUS and it's really tempting to try again.

Can i unlock other CUs with this :
Adapters detected: 1
Card #1 PCI ID: 1002:7300 - 174B:E329
DevID [7300] Rev [CB] (0), memory config: 0x00000000 (unused)
Fiji-class chip with 16 compute units per Shader Engine
SE1 hw/sw: 00100000 / 00000000 [...........x....]
SE2 hw/sw: 00020000 / 00000000 [..............x.]
SE3 hw/sw: 00020000 / 00000000 [..............x.]
SE4 hw/sw: 00020000 / 00000000 [..............x.]
60 of 64 CUs are active. HW locks: 4 (R/W) / SW locks: 0 (R/W).
4 CU's are disabled by HW lock, override is possible at your own risk.

Thanks for helper

you cant brick the card, it has 2 bios's, try one, make a backup of existing bios before you do anything, then try to flash, if all fails, you can always boot the pc from a working bios, flip the switch, and flash it back to a backup file you created earlier. i dont think asus would even know you done anything. just be careful and follow instructions

asus doesn't have dual bios..

yea? that is not good, then i wouldnt monkey with it as you are at risk. there are ways to do it, you need another video card, i have done it once some time ago, but it is involved, and to be honest, in fury, fury x case, it is not worth it

Hi @ all. Looks like I got lucky and unlocked me some aircooled Fury X biggrin.gif

First tried successfully 4low and then went to 4all without any problems so far. Temps rose about 2 degrees and power consumption maybe about 15 watts, so nothing to worry about.

Not a massive boost but definitely an improvement

your benches prove what i was thinking, it is almost not worth doing, i am yet to measure heat, temps with all shaders unlocked. nice to have for sure, but makes almost no difference

Perhaps future games (dx12?) will benefit from more computing units.

I'd have been happy if my card had been unlockable...

99+% of performance difference between fury and fury x comes from reduced core clock, not disabled comp. units..I thought it was established months ago based on reviews.

there is no difference which display port output off the card to use is there?
