11187-00-40R is the SKU for mine as well
P/N is 288-4E182-000SA
Model Number is 100311-2SR

This is the new reference apparently.
This says it all. The link I had in a prior post was bad, here's the corrected version.

Hmmm... it's almost the same ... but ... does the sapphire has dual bios? I've been told that these new cards didn't have Dual Bios ... :x

( sorry ... i've been talking with a friend that has my cards ... that how i know the SKU number tongue.gif i still don't have them )

Just one bios, no switch.

So, i removed the cooler of my new sapphire's ...

The PCB rev 2 has less phases than the rev 1 ... although this Sapphire has 2 smaller resistors in the rear of the card ...

And away goes the dual bios

Heres a pic of the Powercolor 6970 PCS+ with the same pcb but with bios switch ( although, they don't have those 2 extra inductors in the rear of the card )

Pic here

the smaller resistors are R47's ...

This newer looks much more aesthetically pleasing. Sapphire makes good cards, but I just hate how they plaster those random CGI characters onto it which makes the card look sketchy to me.

I'm just a little confused about the new VRM design ... tried to get some info on the Yageo R47 inductors they add in the rear of the card ( just by the caps ) ... but wasn't lucky ...

Thanks for disassembling and taking the pictures. +rep So what's your take on the construction of the card? Specifically, what do you think of the power phases and the lack of the dual bios? I don't think we're really missing anything without the dual bios on a 6970, but I'm wondering about the power situation. I've always been under the impression that more is better, (equal quality components of course) but I'm sure that's not always the case.

This new Sapphire PCB Looks very similar to the newer XFX revision shown in the "XFX Silent Revision" post.

Yes ... the dual bios for me isn't that important...

The problem is i don't quite understand what they did with the power phases.

The inductors are R19 ( 7 ) and R47 ( 2 )

The rev1 had 8 R23's ...

Now... my question is ... R19 vs R23 ... can't find any info on how efficient they are :x
And i really don't know if the 23 vs 19 versions can be understood as better efficiency or not ... :x googling for info atm ... :x

Any input from an "electronics" guru would be appreciated biggrin.gif
