AMD Radeon HD 6950 to HD 6970 Mod

Introduction

A few weeks ago AMD released the Radeon HD 6970 and Radeon HD 6950. Both cards are based on AMD's new Cayman core which is their first graphics processor to use a VLIW4 shader configuration.
AMD/ATI Highend GPU structureJust like on all other similar products, AMD's two Cayman variants, called Cayman Pro and Cayman XT, are based on the exact same GPU silicon. The model variant a GPU chip becomes is decided after the die is produced, at some point before it is put on the card. Creating new SKUs from the same silicon by locking features has been common practice in the industry since at least the Radeon 9500 in 2002. This article is to unlock the Radeon HD 6950. The HD 6970 has nothing that can be unlocked.
The picture above shows the disabled HD 6950 shaders in red. When unlocked, these deactivated units become active, resulting in a substantial performance increase. AMD has two methods of locking the shader count on all of their recent GPUs. The first one relies on fuses inside the GPU, or on the substrate - a mechanism similar to Intel's multiplier locking. It is not reversible as far as we know. The second mechanism is the one we are interested in, AMD can configure the VGA BIOS in a way that it disables extra shaders, in addition to the ones disabled via the on-die fuses. This method is mostly used to create engineering samples or reviewer cards that match the target specifications. Usually production cards come with the shader count configured in the fuses, so that it can not be changed. Apparently currently shipping Radeon HD 6950 cards from all manufacturers - which actually are all the same card with different sticker - have their shaders locked via the BIOS method, so we can exploit it easily.

Unlocking the shaders

Unlocking the additional shaders is done by flashing the card with a HD 6970 BIOS. You can find a few in our VGA BIOS collection. Any of these BIOSes will work on any reference design HD 6950 card. You could use the ASUS BIOS which comes with higher clocks & Overdrive limits and enables voltage changes via SmartDoctor, or stick with one of the reference BIOSes in case you are afraid the clocks might be too high. I will describe the method for flashing from within Windows, which is safe enough on these cards because of the dual BIOS feature that enables easy recovery.
  1. Grab ATI Winflash from here (32 & 64-bit).
  2. Download HD 6970 BIOS. The Sapphire one I linked to will work on all reference design cards from any vendor.
  3. Make sure the BIOS switch on the card is set to the 1 position (pictured further down if you don't know where it is).
  4. Run ATI Winflash, click Save to save your BIOS, so you have a backup in case something goes wrong.
  5. Load the HD 6970 BIOS into Winflash by clicking Load Image, followed by Program.
  6. Let the flashing process complete and reboot your system.
  7. Check the shader count using GPU-Z, it should show 1536. Make sure you use version 0.5.0 or newer, the official 0.4.9 version does not support HD 6900 Series properly. If you see a shader count of 1600, your GPU-Z version is outdated.
  8. To ensure maximized performance open Catalyst Control Center, go to the Overdrive tab and set the PowerTune slider to the +20% setting. The "Testing" section of this article has more data on that.
  9. Check stability in Windows desktop applications and games.
If you get an error like ID mismatch or Could not erase ROM, then you'll have to do some extra work in a Windows command prompt (or DOS): Run atiwinflash -unlockrom 0 followed by atiwinflash -f -p 0 bios.bin where bios.bin is the path and filename of the HD 6970 BIOS you downloaded. Update: I have uploaded a pack of all the files required together with some batch files to ease the process for less experienced users. You can download it here, please report success or any issues with the scripts in the comments for this article. Feel free to post in the discussion thread for this article if you need additional assistance with the flashing process.

Testing

We can see that enabling the shaders without any clock increases improves performance. Once the clock speeds are adjusted to match the HD 6970, the card effectively performs just as well as a full blown Radeon HD 6970. I did some additional power consumption tests and it seems that AMD's PowerTune power limiting system does not get "upgraded" by the BIOS flash. We see that even when modded, the HD 6950 (at HD 6970 shaders and clocks) runs into the PowerTune limit earlier than the regular HD 6970 which results in reduced power draw but also reduced performance in Furmark. With a power consumption of 202 W, the modded HD 6950 is well below the 225 W specification limit of the HD 6950 power configuration. Once we up the power limit in Catalyst Control Center by +20%, we see that the modded HD 6950 draws 252 W, which exceeds its specification (225 W) by 27 W. This move also improves rendering performance by a good deal, so I would recommend it to all users who perform this mod and have a half-decent power supply. Going 12% beyond the specified power limit will not have any ill effects on your hardware and is well covered by manufacturing tolerances and overspeccing, but it reduces the possibility of stuttering or other performance slowdowns caused by AMD PowerTune.

What if something goes wrong?

So you flashed the BIOS and your card doesn't work for one reason or the other? If your card boots fine but does not work reliably in 3D, you can just boot the card and flash back the original BIOS of your card (that's why you should always save your BIOS before doing any flashing experiments. In case your card does not boot at all you can use AMD's new backup BIOS feature:
  1. Set the BIOS switch (pictured above) in the 2 position to enable the recovery BIOS and restart the computer. This will let you boot the card without problems.
  2. Boot into Windows/DOS prompt and get ready to flash the card - do not start the flashing process just yet.
  3. Set the BIOS switch in the 1 position with the system running and ready to flash.
  4. Flash your saved BIOS to the card.
  5. Reboot, done.
The dual BIOS feature is just an added convenience for easier recovery, it is not a requirement for this kind of modding, nor is it evidence that AMD has planned their cards with unlocking in mind.

AMD Radeon HD 6950 Can be Unlocked to HD 6970
Looks like Santa brought an extra present for us hardware enthusiasts this year. Thanks to a less secure locking method AMD's new Radeon HD 6950 can be unlocked to a full blown HD 6970 with a few mouse clicks. As detailed in our article, you can safely perform the flashing process from within Windows. In case something goes wrong it is easier than ever to recover the card thanks to AMD's new Dual-BIOS feature. We tested the unlock on three HD 6950 cards: one AMD engineering sample, one HIS media sample and one ASUS retail card. All of them unlocked perfectly and run at HD 6970 speeds now. More success reports are compiled into a table at the end of the modding article.

Upgrade ESX 4 Update 2 to ESX 4.1

Upgrade ESX 4 Update 2 to ESX 4.1

Problems with VUM (VMware Update Manager) lead me to upgrade our ESX 4 U2 hosts to ESX 4.1 using the command line. During the upgrade, I was getting an error about a certain rpm package that would not uninstall properly (esxupdate error 15), so I've included that as part of my instructions.

To prepare for the upgrade, you need to download the ESX pre-upgrade zip file as well as the 4.1 upgrade zip file. I used WinSCP to copy them to the /tmp directory on each ESX host, then put the hosts in maintenance mode using vCenter before doing the upgrade. The whole process is pretty quick once you've downloaded and staged the zip files.

Note these instructions assume you use sudo for admin tasks, if not, leave it out.

1. install pre-relase patch: sudo esxupdate update --bundle=/tmp/pre-upgrade-from-ESX4.0-to-4.1.0-0.0.260247-release.zip

2. install upgrade: sudo esxupdate update --bundle=/tmp/upgrade-from-ESX4.0-to-4.1.0-0.0.260247-release.zip

3. remove RPM from update 2 that won't remove autmatically (the first command checks to see if it is still installed, the second removes it if it is still there): sudo rpm -q vmware-esx-apps-4.0.0-2.17.261974 sudo rpm -e vmware-esx-apps-4.0.0-2.17.261974

4. reboot sudo reboot

5. Afterwards, you can log back in and check the host version: sudo vmware -v

Distances itself from exposes; will instead pass on the information to independent news media
Share

With the big brother closing in on beleaguered WikiLeaks architect Julian Assange, his former partners at the project are deserting him for a similar project. Christened Openleaks, the new non-profit organisation is founded by the former associates of Assange at WikiLeaks. The erstwhile partners claim, on the condition of anonymity, that Assange's high-handed approach is what made them break off into a separate entity.

Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter quoted one of the founders, 'As a short-term goal, this is about completing the technical infrastructure and ensuring that the organization continues to be democratically governed by all its members, rather than limited to one group or individual.' The ex-partners claim Assange's personal problems disrupted WikiLeaks from its goals. They contended that his experiences from the past were motivating his autocratic approach in pursuing issues without taking the collective into consideration.

In a clear departure from WikiLeaks' ethos, Openleaks will not directly publish the exposes. It will instead pass on the same to independent media entities. Openleaks intends to position itself as a neutral mediator with no political agenda. According to them, this will shield them from government wrath. The basic idea behind the move is to place the burden of editing and authenticating the information to third parties. The governments and other entities at the receiving will then have to contend with the independent media, which Openleaks believes would be more resilient against such pressures.

Security issue in Website Optimiser

Dear Website Optimiser user,

We are writing to inform you of a potential security issue with Website Optimiser. By exploiting a vulnerability in the Website Optimiser Control Script, an attacker might be able to execute malicious code on your site using a Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attack. This attack can only take place if a website or browser has already been compromised by a separate attack. While the immediate probability of this attack is low, we urge you to take action to protect your site.

We have fixed the bug, and all new experiments are not susceptible. However, any experiments you are currently running need to be updated to fix the bug on your site. Additionally, if you have any Website Optimiser scripts from paused or stopped experiments created before 3 December 2010, you will need to remove or update that code as well.

There are two ways to update your code. You can either stop current experiments, remove the old scripts and create a new experiment, or you can update the code on your site directly. We strongly recommend creating a new experiment as it is the simpler method.

Creating a New Experiment

  1. Stop any currently running Website Optimiser experiments
  2. Remove all the Website Optimiser scripts from your site
  3. Create a new experiment as normal. New experiments are not vulnerable.

Updating the Website Optimizer Control Script Directly

  1. Locate the Control Script on your site. It looks like this:
A/B Test Control Script
<!-- Google Website Optimiser Control Script -->

</script>
<-- End of Google Website Optimizer Control Script -->
  1. Locate the following in the Control Script: return c.substring(...
  2. Modify the following line as shown:
    BEFORE: return c.substring(i+n.length+1,j<0?c.length:j)
    FIXED: return escape(c.substring(i+n.length+1,j<0?c.length:j))
    Make sure to include the final closing brackets “)”

Note that the k=XXXXXXXXX line in the above Control Script examples is a placeholder.

Your experiment will continue as normal after you’ve made this update. There’s no need to pause or restart the experiment.

We’re committed to keeping Website Optimiser secure, and we’re deeply sorry for this issue. We will continue to work hard to prevent future vulnerabilities.

Tricks to Deal With Bad Customer Service

Tricks to Deal With Bad Customer Service


Cool customer services will make you want to continue to do business with a company. Bad customer service will frustrate you and make you think about taking your business else where. Dealing with bad customer service in the proper way will help you feel better about your experience and will help the company improve customer service.

Be specific about your complaint when you are speaking to a customer service representative. Many times, bad customer service is simply the result of the customer service representative misunderstanding your situation.


Stay calm and polite when you are speaking to any representative of the company. Becoming irate will hurt your chances of having your problem solved.


Ask to speak to a supervisor or manager if necessary. A manager or supervisor will usually have more options available to effectively fix your problem.


Offer your suggestions. If you have ways in mind to correct the problem or improve customer service, let the supervisor know. You may be able to offer a solution that the manager didn't think about.


Accept that you may have to compromise. In some cases, the solution that you are seeking may be impossible.

Write a letter to the company or business owner. Make sure that you include your initial problem, the names of everyone you spoke with, your specific customer service complaints, your proposed solution and your contact information.

Find a new business to frequent. If you find that you are unable to get your situation resolved in a mutually agreeable way, taking your business elsewhere will make a powerful statement. This is especially true if you are dealing with a small business.

Calling the UK Minister to act to protect the Internet's openness

Calling the UK Minister to act to protect the Internet's openness


Today, a group of 18 organizations representing a broad spectrum of society and the economy has sent an open letter to Ed Vaizey, MP, the UK Minister in charge of digital issues, to call on the UK Government to reflect their recent commitment to the open Internet in action on the ground. Skype is part of this initiative because we believe it is important to remind policy makers, local governments and regulators throughout Europe that a verbal commitment will not be sufficient to establish and protect openness.

We strongly welcome the UK Government's recent statement of support for the open Internet, but we must not forget about the existing restrictions in place in the UK and many other countries around the globe. For example, in countries like France, Germany, Spain, or the UK (to name only a few), several, if not all, mobile operators prohibit their customers from using Skype on their mobiles or they only allow Skype usage at extra cost. Similar restrictions affect many other uses of the Internet, such as video, audio, instant messaging, streaming, P2P, etc. In order to remove these restrictions, the governments and regulatory authorities in these countries - including the UK - need to make sure that:
Users can send and receive the content, use the services and run the applications of their choice on the Internet, on the device of their choice

Traffic management is kept to a minimum, and only in place for purely technical or security reasons

There is meaningful transparency for consumers about traffic management

New models of Internet access don't compromise openness

Effective enforcement mechanisms are in place to ensure openness
