Radeon HD 6950 Into a 6970 With a BIOS Hack
AMD's freshly released Radeon HD 6950 and 6970 are the new leaders for the chipmaker's graphics offerings.
Interestingly, both graphics parts are based off of the same Cayman core. We're not talking about just the same underlying technology, but apparently the cores are the same in both graphics parts. The only difference is the software that's flashed on the BIOS.
It turns out that those who have a Radeon HD 6950 can simply reflash their graphics card BIOS to enable those dormant parts of the GPU.
The process is outlined by TechPowerUp, so click through to check out how to unleash more power out of the Radeon HD 6950.
