XFX 6950 CNFC unlocked to "6970 shaders"

MAx OC without increasing voltaje is 920/1375 (stable for mining in Deepbit)

Using 3dMark11

P6030 3DMarks

My maximum stable OC is 1010/1400 with 1.3v, using the unlocked XFX card.
The OC wasn´t very stable, but it passed the

I used this method to unlock the 6950 bios.

To unlock the voltage i used this

Sorry, but the Futuremark site does not read the GPU frequencies. But I assure you, that I have reached them .

Half the people in this thread are confusing a 6970 bios flash with a 6950 bios mod to 6970 shaders.

o sorry about that it was not meant to be confusing.
this thread is for anyone with a 6950 card. it can be flash with 6970 bios/oc or 6950 mod bios/unlock/oc/etc.
I just find some thread have 6970 cards in it and makes it confusing for some about how far they can push their 6950.
[
i hope that clearifys this up

by the way i wont be on for a week or two I dont have time to play around with my card I am doing a big move, downsizing so lots to pack and sort. i will be back in April. as of right now I have my card flash to a 6970 bios and I have overclock it to 1000mhz/1375mhz with 20%powerboost and using msi afterburner to set the corevoltage to 1.3 steady.
I have notice that ab will allow you to set the voltage and fan profile only if you dont touch the core/memory speed. which will not change if you set it in ccc.

anyways back in April after my big move. everyone keep posting there results and question i will try and check up once in a while.
PS: I have put my card though almost every clock setting around with both 6950bios and 6970 bios . I will post more later.

Furtive question: does anyone know if this Sapphire 6950 (not this one)is unlock capable? (Just shader unlock, not 6970 BIOS flashing)

Thanks!

I dont think it will because it was a error on their site. it is suppose to be the flex edition which is coming out soon
http://www.gamespot.com/forums/topic...on?login=true& http://www.sapphiretech.com/presenta...=0001&pid=1082

I know that this one http://www.sapphiretech.com/presenta...pid=1021&lid=1 does unlock and flash. it must have the model number #21188-00-40R in it.
the other one with model number #100312SR is cheaper and i have not found anything on it being unlock able and the one retail store i talk to in my area said it was not..

i hope that answers your question

Thanks for your answer. The card with that model number (21188-00-40R) is out of stock in the store where I was going to buy, but the second one (with model number 11188-00-40R) is in stock (6€ cheaper, also).

With a more deep search, knowing the serial number of second revision, I found this thread. (I don't speak German, so it's Google-translated). It seems that is not possible to flash the modified BIOS. D'oh.

Nop, I live in Spain. However, I found the MSI R6950-2PM2D2GD5, whose rev. 1 seems to be fully unlockable. Thanks for your answers : )
post #40 of 76
Today I'll be using the 6950 for the first time. How do i know which revision it is?
