my gpu already clocks high because its under water, but i want to know if i can unlock the core from 2560 to 2800? 

does that memory type seem for the unlock ? if someone could let me know if its good to unlock or not?

Probably not, modern hardware makes that a LOT harder to do.

you're using outdated diagnostic tool, the hawaii info is like from the 2013 or something, nobody remembers how to use that.

 

follow this guide, there's also a link to updated diagnostic tools:

If it's one of the the old ones then maybe but the newer ones are reported  to not be able to be unlocked anymore.

Welp, looks like you can't unlock them....

Buy whatever product is best for you, not what product is "best" for the market.

 

I seem to like any products who have the same software and hardware maker, as long as it's not Apple. Weird. I like the Surface Book and the Pixel phones, but most definitely don't want an iPhone (I'm not saying they're bad, though).

 

Interested in computer architecture? Still in middle or high school? P.M. me!

 

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones). I especially like SSDs. But please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.

Bruh......

A 390 IS a 290, it just as higher clocked ram and more of it. They also generally clock a little higher. But you can't get that from a bios.

That and add an extra 2.5GB to the PCB, just solder a 512mb and 2gb mem stick to it.
