Default Re: Basic FX59xxx bios changes

jimmor, first of all very good thread. thanks for taking the time to help us get the most out of our FX 5900s and 5950s!

regarding the separate 2d/3d memory speeds... could it be possible that it is not working for Fahim because his is an XT type card? I realize you have tested this on a 5950 bios, but was wondering on which type card? a 5900 NU? U? or XT? or maybe even had this tested on all cards?

I've been doing some more editing to my original BIOS, and seem to have increased my shader performance greatly! I've tested with both 5950 bios and 5900 bios and am getting considerable more FPS in shadermark with the 5900 bios. The odd thing is, I am now scoring higher with 5900nu BIOS (modded clock/latency/volts w/ 60.72 Forceware) than I am with 5950u BIOS (modded latency w/ 61.11). I am liking it because the 60.72 do look and function much better overall. Thing I don't like is the higher temps
