Hey guys, trying a little project here. I've got a 3870 at my disposal, and I intend to turn it into a FireGL card. I know that the only fireGL card based on the 3xxx series was from the 3850, but as far as I know, it isnt so different from the 3870 that we couldnt just hack the info in that I'd need.

So, if anyone could help, I'd love it. I need to know of a method to hack a fireGL 7700 bios. And it would be convenient to know the information needed to change a 3850 bios into a 3870 bios too.
And lastly, where the heck can I find a FireGL 7700 bios at to hack in the first place!!? I cant find one anywhere.

Seems there's quite a bit of info on, but their damn verification code software to register (Which I cant stand on any forum, seriously) is messed up. So I cant even search the forums without registering. Meh.

Basically, I seen quite a few people on there giving bench results for their softmods of the 3870, but with no directions or the modded driver files to do it.

Can anyone lead me in the right direction?

Techpowerup has some info as I recall, but I`m not sure how up to date it is.
