Like Core clock, Stream Processors.....? Also, Ive read that only the reference cards can be flashed. How can you tell if its a reference card? Thanx More about : flashing 6950 6970 Best solution Zanathon January 29, 2011 10:39:51 PM Here is a link to the article on TechPowerup on flashing the 6950. http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/overclocking/vidcar... I flashed my Sapphire 6950 to a 6970 with an Asus bios and it is running at 890 core / 1375 mem with 1536 shaders. If you have the 2GB board it should be a reference card. Just follow the intructions in the article, I hope this helps Share bystander a c 222 U Graphics card January 29, 2011 10:58:27 PM To answer your question, yes, it has everything a 6970 has. However, it might not OC as well, and there are cases were the memory has gone bad. This is because they use lower rated memory in some of the 6950's.
