Re: The Official HD 6000 Series Review thread
If you fellows who are getting a 6850 want to OC them now and not be limited to 850 on the core from the CCC add Force Unsupported GPU = 1 to the config file in MSI's Afterburner folder. You do need to enable unofficial overclocking like normal as well.
It still won't allow you to increase voltage however it will open your core range up.
I'm testing one myself that I will be passing on to my nephew in a week or so when I'm done. I've had it up to 960 so far without voltage increases. That was only for one run though. I haven't had time to thoroughly test it. I can say it does 930|1150 with the fan @ 56% with zero problems. Once proper voltage support arrives I wouldn't be surprised if it hits 1010. This is a Sapphire HD 6850.
