I'm confronting with a big problem

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have this Radeon HD 6950, 2GB, 256bit, GDDR5.

This GPU is seen, in all softwares,  as running in PCI-E X1 instead of X16 and games run much slower than my other HD 6870 1GB. I've been trying getting it to work on X16 for a month. Reseating GPU. Reseating PCI-E cables. Changing drivers. Looking through bios (as far as I know there is nothing in there related to PCI-E speed). Now, I have a lot of other GPUs, and they all work on X16 (this is why the other HD 6870 is much faster). The fact that I can't use it only at about half the FPS it's driving me mad. ANYONE has ANY idea why this piece of CRAP doesn't work with x16 speed? The system I'm trying to run this is on a server machine, HP Proliant ML110 G6 with changed PSU.

Might be that the GPU is faulty if you've tried all that. Maybe there's no way to fix it :/ Maybe somebody else knows what else you could try?

No it doesn't mean that it is faulty 

That's not how it works

Firmware...Firmware🤔 I'm sorry but what does this mean? 😂 Installing another BIOS on the card?

Check what the latest firmware or vbios in other words for this card and install the latest one 

Check the bios and make sure it runs at x16 

Or just try clearing the cmos

Yeah checked the bios, it's the same one as the official bios from techpowerup. Cleared the CMOS multiple times. I can't check if it runs at X16 from the motherboard's bios, since I don't see any PCI-E Link settings in there. That's a cheeky little card. I'm thinking  the shitty AMD PowerTune implemented in HD 69xx is throttling the card to X1, but couldn't find any info on that.

I don't why it could be running at x1 other than these 

This won't fix it I know but maybe by some miracle it will try maybe ddu
