Has anyone CFed a fully unlocked 6950 with a real 6970

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'll have a 6950 2GB in about 10 days, but I can't spend the cash for the 2nd one for 2-4 months,


So if the supply of shader unlockable cards is mostly gone by then....and the 1st unlocked, I should get a 6970 as the 2nd

Has anyone shader unlocked a 6950 and OCed it to 6970 levels, and then CFed with a real 6970

What are the results of that.

An "unlocked" 6950 is actually a 6970 that had software put on it by the manufacture to lock shaders ect. There is absolutely NO difference besides the lack of 8 pin power (6 pin instead). So yes everything will work perfectly fine if you get a 6970, and Google 6970 crossfire review if you want to check out results.
