AMD Radeon HD 6950 Unlocked And Turned Into Radeon HD 6970

If you have own Radeon HD 6950 GPU and still want to unlock its hidden potential even more, you should check out the BIOS flash hack by techPowerUp guys from their website.


By using their hack, it’s possible to turbo-boost Radeon HD 6950 to Radeon HD 6970’s performance despite of its interface (6950 is using 6-pin connector while 6970 is using 8-pin connector).

Perhaps this BIOS hack is doable thanks to the same Cayman core on both GPUs, but it’s been tipped that the hack might cause some problem under extreme loads condition and you’ll have to break the warranty to get the additional power and performance.

If it’s worth the try, just go to the website at TechPowerUp to find out more.
