Hi so I recently have been running into problems when playing BF3 and I think that I should now reflash the BIOS, For Your Info, I have a Sapphire 6950 2GB DiRT 3 Edition Card (two of them)

Thanks

Are you looking for new bios, same bios, other bios?

Using TriXX can also create a log file for future analysis, and the save the BIOS. Did you use this?

have you considered flipping the bios switch on both of them and running them as 6970's?

Note*flashing a GPU bios is not like flashing a motherboard bios.you dont do it because you have a game issue.this one is done ONLY for unlock of shaders as in the link.
However yours may already have it as both of mine did,just by flipping the bios switch as odoyle_rules mentioned.

Yeah well it's a dual bios card, I'm wondering if he's altered both or maybe he doesn't know about the switch?

Thanks, I know about the BIOS switch, should I flip it and try to unlock it to 6970?

yep!just shut down,flip the switches,restart and use GPU-Z to check the shaders,should be 1536,up from 1408.

remember! this doesnt make it a 6970,it only unlocks the shaders to a 6970 shaders,then you have to change the clock and voltage settings to match a 6970,however,Not All cards will take the overclock.On mine I just unlocked the shaders and left the clocks alone.
