Hi guys,

I want to buy a new GPU, and im interested in 6950 and also want to flash to 6970. But ive heard that the new reference models will be locked and cant be flashed anymore.. Is this rumor true?

I just got one from Amazon 2 days ago that unlocked perfectly and is running max 6970 clocks. It's a rev1 card.

Afaik, the MSI 6950 sold from Tigerdirect/Circuit City are rev2 cards which won't unlock going from cases I've come across online.

I'm getting tired of these threads.

1. You have no way of knowing if it will unlock or not.
2. 6950 is a great card wheter it unlocks or not.

It better, soon I'll have the same model

Up the version 2 cards that are locked/have the other shaders chopped off is very upsetting to me.

I hope to CF my 6950, but I can't afford the second for 2-3 months yet, and it would suck to only have 1 unlock
