Default Radeon HD 6950 to HD 6970 Flashing Tools

Quote:
Recently it became apparent that the Radeon HD 6950 in fact is a 6970 with shader processor clusters disabled. You'll need to re-flash your card though. You can perform the flashing process from within Windows and het, thanks to AMD's new Dual-BIOS feature if something would go wrong, you can switch back. We successfully tested an unlock on a HD 6950 cards. Other have tried one AMD engineering sample, one HIS media sample and one ASUS retail card. All of them unlocked perfectly and run at HD 6970 speeds now. Your graphics card needs to be a reference design sample.

Default Unlock HD 6950 to HD 6970

AMD Radeon HD 6950 Can be Unlocked to HD 6970 | techPowerUp

AMD Radeon HD 6950 Can be Unlocked to HD 6970

Looks like Santa brought an extra present for us hardware enthusiasts this year. Thanks to a less secure locking method AMD's new Radeon HD 6950 can be unlocked to a full blown HD 6970 with a few mouse clicks.

As detailed in our article, you can safely perform the flashing process from within Windows. In case something goes wrong it is easier than ever to recover the card thanks to AMD's new Dual-BIOS feature.

We tested the unlock on three HD 6950 cards: one AMD engineering sample, one HIS media sample and one ASUS retail card. All of them unlocked perfectly and run at HD 6970 speeds now. More success reports are compiled into a table at the end of the modding article.
