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% at the time of this writing. 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 the original 6950 BIOS, just repeat the manual process we detailed, ignoring Step 3. Then, in Step 4, instead of loading the 6970 BIOS, load your previously saved 6950 BIOS. Alternatively, use the automatic method and run: flash_back_to_6950.bat
