Nice one, if only id known before
how did you get smartdoctor working? also 6900 cards arent listed in RBE so how did you edit? Ive just tried unsuccesfully.
a couple of days ago we were in the same boat lol
do some stress test, like furmark or smth for 30 min
all been done mate the cards fine I assure you
I thought only the 6970 was dual gpu so far..until the 6990
Sorry...link didnt work from ******************** but here`s a quote
"The ATI Radeon HD 6970 uses a new GPU architecture from AMD which features dual graphics engines in one chip with 24 SIMD engines and a total of 1536 stream processors with 96 texture units, providing massively parallel computing power for graphics and other accelerated applications. Its core clock speed of 880MHz, together with a dedicated high speed interface to 2GB of GDDR5 memory running at 1375MHz (5.5Gb/s effective) delivers the highest performance in this series. New Tesselation engines bring up to three times the performance of the previous generation, and new Enhanced Quality AA and filtering modes bring the highest image quality ever achieved."
davetheshrew - its not only in manufacturers ID, you have to change something else send me PM, i can send you modded bios for unlocked 6950 with working samrt doctor (its not asus bios, but modded original from amd). using asus bios is illegal ...
That quote explains some architectural details about the new GPU powering these cards, but this should clear your doubts
5970 -> 6990
5870 -> 6970
5850 -> 6950
5770 -> 6870
5750 -> 6850
That's the new naming for this series. The new high end are the 6950 and 6970, and the dual GPU card is the 6990 coming in a few weeks IIRC.
I have no doubts...just quoting what i`d read,the 5870 or the 6950 didnt have dual graphics engines in one chip,the card i found is from HIS
Can see this boosting 6950 sales more so now, a 6970 for £218, what a bargain, nice one AMD
yeah man feel Ive saved a bunch of cash now, nice one |AMD
check your inbox I really want this modded lol
That just means that part of the chip has been doubled to improve efficiency.
Hey... thank you for start this thread and make me busy tonight before go to the bed hehehe Really thank you !
Hehehe... this is an AMD please don't forget for Phenom II X3 to X4 and now starting for 6950 to 6970 :thumbup:
yeas this looks interesting way better than 570gtx and saves me 60€ compared to 570 or 80€ vs 6970 lol:nerd:
edit: so 6970 could maybe unlock to 1600sp?
Nice!! i think i have something to do next weekend

sorry just google hp disk format tool.
Ive got the voltages unlocked now using smartdoctor, gonna open AB and see if I can hit 1000+core
