His 6950 iceQ x turbo bios, help

Hi, I wanted to know, you think you can flash the bios of this card http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-613.shtml
In this other card http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-611.shtml
can be done or not?
the difference is that my card has the GPU core at 840Mhz and the other is a 880MHz
if you think I have a brick?

    Overclock your card to 880mhz then test for stability.
    If stable then the flash to the other card is pointless.

    thanks, but it may be possible or not
  2. why would you want to do that

    to have the card to 880MHz without any additional software
  4. it is a much more risky thing than just installing msi afterburner and moving a slider a bit, you could destroy youre card, which afterburner wont do
  5. If you brick it , will it be worth 40mhz?

    Just overclock it
  6. thank you all, I do just overclock
    but if someone knows it's possible it will be greeted
    thank you very much
  7. If you modify the existing bios to unlock the shaders, then use MSI afterburner to overclock it, it is very possible, if not highly likely. I've seen a number of people with that card be successful. DO NOT FLASH a 6970 bios on the card, but you can still unlock the shaders.

    Forgive my unprofessional instruction, but it can work for ANY 6950 1gb or 2gb: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/316974-33-radeon-6950-shader-unlock-instructions#t2368661

    Any advise on why I can't get past step 13? I followed all the steps and when I hit enter on step 13 the loading bar for the bios goes about halfway and then just dissapears


    also did it in ms-dos
    reboot and still have the 1408
    my card will not have the shader?

    Its exactly the same: (not sure if its supposed to be)

    When I boot from usb and use atiflash to flash the stock bios to the modded.bin everything is the same:


    (Every line is old, then next line is new, IE:
    Old SSID: 2010
    New SSID: 2010 - etc)


    SSID: 2010
    P/N: 113-SS2G02-002
    DeviceID: 6719
    Product Name: Cayman Pro PCIE 2g/256B Gddr5 2xdvi/hdmi/2xmdp 840e/1280m
    Bios version: 013.010.000.007.039363

    Flash type: M25P10/c
    20000/20000h bytes programmed
    20000/20000h bytes verified

    Restart system to complete VBIOS Update

  9. All the info on the bios will be the same except the shader count provided the shaders can be unlocked. You aren't changing the bios version or anything, you are modifying an existing bios.

    If you run the the bios through the modder, and does modify it, then the only problem is your card cannot unlock. Sorry.
