Clocks dropping on 6950? - Page 3

Yeah I'm starting to think its just LFD2 it has a warning message before I play that its not supported I'm guess poor gameplay is due to that. I just unlocked it to 6970 and its runing fine

I've been having problems with my clocks staying at certain frequencies on the desktop and remaining there when I enter a game. It's not your card, others have been experiencing the same issues. Right now, the 10.12a hotfix drivers are really the only ones that fully support these cards and they don't do a particularly great job at that. I'm waiting for the next revision to see if these problems can be ironed out.

As for the flashing issue, you need to type in a few extra commands in cmd to actually unlock your BIOS before doing the flash.


Follow this guide and make sure you do the section entitled "extra work": http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/...ng/vidcard/159


I flashed my Powercolor 6950s the other day and I found them to be stable in OCCT and Kombustor but I would get random crashes in BC2. There seems to be an issue with the 6970 having better memory and tighter timings, timings that the 6950 memory sometimes can't handle.

Anyway, I've flashed them back but modded the BIOS so that the shaders are still unlocked. Once the Radeon BIOS Editor and Afterburner support these cards it should be fairly easy to maintain a 6950 BIOS and modify it to match the voltage and clocks of a stock 6970. This way the tighter timings on the 6970 RAM won't make a difference.
