My System Specs

Default HD6950, possible unlock to HD6970.

Seems like there has been a decent amount of success to those giving the flash a shot over at XS. Shame that they weren't any for a good price for the NCIX boxing day sale.

have fun with you unlocked cayman, thanks for the guys at xsforums for being the first at flashing the 6970, I think but not sure but I may have been the first to succesfully unlock my card into a full fat cayman And thanks AMD for not lasercutting the core this time round
