    - Hi everyone :)

    - I believe that the New mighty GTX460 HAWAK has the uP6213AJ VRM.

    from TPU review.

    - And because my Sapphire HD5850 non-reference card has the same chip I think that the new AB should do the voltage controling for it now.

    - I tried Afterburner 2.0.0 Beta 7 that should be supporting HAWK and the new chip but it didn't work as the voltage control bar still not active.

    - Is there any commands that can be added to the .cfg file to enable VC for my card as what happend in this thread :

    - Thanks in advance.

    Afterburner controls voltage via triple-channel uP6262 VRM on 460 HAWK series. There never was support for uP6213, furthermore I doubt that it supports and non-GPIO programmability at all.

    - Thanks Unwinder for the reply :)

    - So you say that HAWK has only uP6262 VRM !.... so what about the one in the picture ?

    The previous shot was taken from HAWK in TPU review and they stated that it is for VC.

    - Is it used in another function away from voltage controling or what ?

    - Actually this picture is what made me think of the whole idea of the compatibility of AB with my card.

    Hawk use up6213 as primary vrm chip but this chip doesn't support voltage adjustment, so we add a up6262 i2c chip to control voltage of gpu/mem/PLL, so the key point isn't 6213, it's 6262. So even if ur card use up6213 like hawk, there is no way to support over voltage beacuse the Pam chip doesn't support this function.

    - Thanks Garrett for clarifying, it's all pretty clear now.
