For this New Year, the techPowerUp! guys seem to got the perfect gift for all gaming enthusiasts. A few weeks ago AMD released the Radeon HD 6970 and Radeon HD 6950 and now a BIOS flash for Radeon 6950 is available that unlocks the full potential of its hardware and turns it into a HD 6970.
We knew the two retail SKUs were built on the same Cayman core, but this BIOS hack confirms that all the 6950’s performance were limited in software rather than hardware, leaving you all to flip a switch, click a few confirmatory dialogs, to convert a HD 6950 into a HD 6970. But be aware that the HD 6970 card uses an 8-pin and a 6-pin connector for its auxiliary power whereas the HD 6950 only has a pair of 6-pin intakes. This may cause trouble under extreme loads, and there’s also the fact that this hack will likely be void your warranty. But you should also know that, you cannot make an omelet without breaking a egg.
