CUINFO tool helps with unlocking disabled AMD GPU Compute Units

A new tool called CUINFO is making the rounds, it originated at the Overclockers.co.uk forums and shows you exactly which compute units are disabled on your Fiji, Hawaii or Tonga GPU. Using this information, it is then possible to unlock these compute units with a custom BIOS.

However, bear in mind that this will not work on all GPUs as in a lot of cases these deactivated cores will truly be defective. The process isn't without risk either, worst-case scenario you may end up bricking your card.
1. How to understand is my card unlockable or no?
Current version of cuinfo tries to speak human language. Last strings for each adapter describe possible unlockability or inform about a fully enabled chip.

2. How do I unlock?
This tool only provides information about core configuration. Please read BIOS reflashing threads about actual unlocking techniques.
