well as some of u know a lil while back i replaced my R9000 with an R9800pro an gave my old card to a mate...now what he wants to know is where can he get hold of a Radeon 9000pro BIOS,
he wants to know as,quite rightfully too,the only thing stopping him from getting a R9000pro for free is the BIOS on the R9000 as ATI put a "limiter" in the BIOS of their G.cards to stop somone from clocking for example a R9000 to an R9000pro thus is why my mate wants to know where he could get a R9000pro BIOS.
sorry all that is long and probably unclear if it dont make a lot of sence tell me an i'll try to make it clearer.
in case its needed my old Radeon9000 had the following spec:
64MB DDR (Running at 200Mhz each =400MHz total)
not sure if the DDR is running at 2.8ns or 3.0ns or 3.3ns. is there any way of finding out by looking that the Board?
and finally I got the DDR on the R9000 running at 215MHz each =430MHz total but I couldnt get the GPU up by even 1MHz but im pretty sure thats due to ATI's "limiter" in the BIOS all the info I got was from powerstrip.
before i end this post ive heard somthing amazing! when the Radeon 9000pro came out people were reporting getting the R9000pro up to a GPU speed of 300MHz and DDR RAM up to about 230MHz each =460MHz total! and as there is NO difference apart from the BIOS "limiter" does anyone know where i could get the original BIOS that was shipped with the R9000 pro? anyway thats all the info on my old R9000 any links an info to do with the Radeon9000 upwards would be greatly appreciated as i find this kind of stuff interesting.
