In rbe last tab is shader unlock. To do voltage go to 2nd tab, clock settings, on the bottom, gpu registers. ANother box opens, both boxes on right side, change them your x voltage. Save, flash, play.
What kinda cards do you have? True reference? If so, you can use winflash if not, follow the other bios guides.
- Unpack the Winflash download onto your desktop in a folder called "winflash"
- Save the BIOS in your Winflash folder and name it unlock.bin
- Click Start Button
- Type "cmd"
- Right click the entry and select "Run as Administrator"
- Black command prompt windows opens
- Type "cd %USERPROFILE%\desktop\winflash"
- Type "atiwinflash -unlockrom 0" <-- the 0 means first adapter, if you have multiple cards, physically uninstall all but the one you want to flash
- Type "atiwinflash -f -p 0 unlock.bin"
- It should complete the flashing process with a message saying something with "verified".

I'm going to flash very soon... Just gotta stop being lazy.

Do you recommend flashing a true reference 6950 without the dial bios?

If it's no big deal, then I will go ahead and go for it...

Reference = dual bios switch, back plate, Volterra digital vrms. If it doesn't have any of the mentioned things, then it isn't a true reference card.

They MUST look like this ....

 

MODEL # HD-695A-CNFC  {and notice the AMD name & Logo on the PCI-e tab, w/ it = Reference ; w/o it = NON-Ref}

 

 


They MUST NOT look like this ....

NON - Reference XFX HD-6950's .... DO NOT FLASH, High risk of bricking your card w/o really knowing what you're doing !

 

MODEL's  # HD-695X-CNDC , # HD-695X-CNFC , # HD-695X-CDFC , # HD-695X-ZDFC , # HD-695X-ZNDC  & # HD-695X-ZNFC

YEP that explains it  ... DO NOT FLASH !   .... same advice to  jam3s  &  allius ... those XFX cards  a.) Most likely are LaserCut GPU's anyways and won't FLASH no matter waht you try, b.) do not have a dual bios making it harder to switch back IF you mess up a bad flash, c.) all adds up for a great risk of BRICKING your card and ending up with a $250 paperweight.
