A 5900 To 5950u

Recommended Posts

I was reading and searching the web when I came upon this:

 

5900 to 5950U

 

It seems that you can do a simple bios flash to turn your Leadtek or Gainward 5900 to an 5950U edition, and actually it should work for any company. It does a software vmod by supplying more voltage to the GPU also.

 

A couple of guys over at XS have done this and had no problems and awesome results. Some guys are even gaining as much as 100MHz on their clocks and cooler temps when using the 43.04 drivers.

 

Just thought you guys would like to know :D

Okay, I know what I'm getting for my next vid card.

Really, I think I'm gonna have to get one just to try this out.

 

You can get a brand new GainWard for $212 from NewEgg. You could have blazing speeds and a ultra fast card for under $220.

The 5950U was released to compete with the 9800XT, but unfortunately it doesn't even compare in benchmarks. The 5950U is great card, but it's no XT beater. This is still a great thing though, you can have a $500 video card for ~$200, you can't beat that.

If this is shown to be true, the fx 5900 line is gonna explode like the Radeon 9500's did when the softmod was discovered.

Well i read the posts from nuclear's links...

Ppl said it worked...

Unfortunately the link is dead!

Searching for the bios elsewhere.....

Edit:

Couldn't i just use the bios from Gainward's website????

 

Edit again:

Okay Gainward wants you to use "their" expertool to d/l the bios which means it will d/l my bios for my vid card...

Anyone know where i can get my hands on this bios???
