Step 1:Download this file
, as it contains a pack with all the files required and batch scripts to complete the process automatically.
Unpack the zip and run: flash_to_6970.bat
Check to see if the flashing process worked using GPU-Z (at least version 0.5.0 or it won’t display correct specs). If the process worked, it should show a shader count of 1536.
Congratulations! You’ve saved yourself a bit of cash and you have a fully functioning Radeon HD 6970. This method has had a success rate of over 95%. To get further performance out of the card, you can go into the Catalyst Control Center, and go to the Overdrive tab to overclock the card. Increasing the PowerTune slider to about 20% will yield a quite a bit of performance gain in exchange for an almost negligible increase in card temperature.
Also, in case you ever need to replace the BIOS to their original 6950 BIOS, just repeat the manual process above ignoring Step 3. Then, in Step 4, instead of loading the 6970 BIOS, load your previously saved 6950 BIOS instead.
Or use the automatic method and run: flash_back_to_6950.bat
That should wrap up the guide. Feel free to leave any questions or comments below and hopefully you get to enjoy your free upgrade quickly and easily.
