I might give it a try as well since it does have that dual bios.

There is a Chinese 7950 that seems to be able to be modded to a 7970. Its called the "Fire Hurricane A795".

No, it didn't. That must have been a bug in gpu-z.

Thank god for that backup bios. I got an error in atiflash when flashing the bios back. When I rebooted the pc I was greeted by a black screen. I ended up having to hotflash the card.

Yeah, I'm done messing with the BIOS's on mine as well. They didn't want to flash back very easily for me. Had to go through a few hoops to figure it out.

I don't think that atiflash properly dumps the bios on these cards. Atiwinflash crashed when I went to dump the bios. Atiflash dumped a backup that was apparently corrupted. Thats what I flashed. The bios that I dumped with gpu-z worked fine though.

Update on the 7970 GHz bios flash. One of my 7970s (the one with the higher ASIC) flaked out slightly with the higher clocks. Adding .04mV to the voltage in Afterburner has stabilized some texture flickering.

Hope someone picks up development on RBE so I can make the alteration to the bios permanently.

biggest baddest loudest single gpu card to date.. pretty much demolishes competition (and ear drums).. impressive none the less given the compartively low(er) consumption at relative mild OCing.. only when pushed does power begin to climb.

The problem I have with it is the 40mm fans, even if they are not actually louder than a normal ghz edition card, the type of noise that they produce will be more annoying than that of a single 80mm fan.

So for me the badass factor gets diminished by their stupid fan selection choice.

OH I agree, I've had several Delta Black fans when I used to OC K6/K7s ...
