Radeon HD 6970 to have dual-BIOS?

Posted on Tuesday, December 14 2010 @ 12:14:28 CET by

FUD Zilla learned AMD's reference Radeon HD 6970 graphics cards feature a dual BIOS:
According to what we know so far, the HD 6970 will have a dual BIOS and the switch is used exactly for that. The switch has two settings and according to AMD's own slides, the setting 2 makes it "protected as factory default", while the setting 1 is unprotected for user updates.

Either it means that AMD will release a BIOS that gives you more performance but also raises power consumption or something else, it is still not clear, but it sure does sounds pretty interesting.
