    AMD 6950 unlock

    Interesting article about AMD 6950 unlocked to 6970. Keep in mind that this can fail and kill the card, also voiding the warranty.

    almost dummy-proof with the dual bios and switch feature that AMD implemented.
    I believe it would save the card, in case of a bad flash.

    Thanks for the post.

    The only reason why I said that is because some people report that it didn't work and card don't work anymore. But I agree that someone with some skill can save it with the dual bios recover tools.
