Default MSI Radeon HD 6950 Twin Frozr III - Can this Card be Unlocked to 6970?

This is a question from minuteman869:

Newegg.com - MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III PE/OC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

just in case that doesn't work this is the card info

Unfortunately I cannot speculate as to whether or not that particular card can be unlocked. Here's the link to my original video: AMD Radeon HD 6950 Software Unlock to Radeon 6970 BIOS Flash Linus Tech Tips - YouTube

Hopefully the Hardware Canucks community has some updated information about this procedure, but my understanding is that AMD eliminated the ability of these cards to unlock after the first few batches...
