Some ASUS Radeon R9 Fury ‘STRIX’ Graphic Cards Can Be Unlocked Into The More Powerful ‘4096 SP’ Fury X

Recommended Posts

NVIDIA and Intel do this as well, they'll throw higher binned chips on cheaper products when there is a supply shortage. It's very likely that some 970s are actually able to be working 980s.

Don't think so, as the 970s are quite literally cut down 980s that didn't make the standard so that they could function.

Not saying it's impossible though, as I don't know exactly how their process works.

Its normal

this is a good thing

it means you can have a chance of getting something better for less

same with the good old Phenom II X4's as well, you could get lucky and be able to unlock two more cores, making it an 1055T (or whatever other Phenom II x6's there were). 

 

I don't remember entirely if you could do it with the x3's too, as this was just before the time when I got really into computers.

I mean intel and Nvidia laser their products for this reason.

 

AMD has known to be more lazy in that fashion.

It would likely be possible, IFF Nvidia didn't laser their chips, which they do.

AFAIK, AMD only laser cut HD7000, not HD6000 or the R9 series.

probably

Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

It can be done on all fury cards, depends on which shaders have been locked whether you can get them all unlocked.

lots more info on here about it.

 

On mine it looks like i maybe able to unlock 3/4 of the locked shaders, i am not going to bother as its only gains about 5-8% performance.
