6950 Flashing to 6970 on Mac Pro
i bought a amd 6950 1gb for my Mac Pro.
works perfectly both under mac and bootcamp.
my question is:
flashing the 6950 to a 6970 is simple..
but its a BIOS flash?? does Bootcamp have a Bios?
as far as i know it has EFI right?
So how do you flash the card under Bootcamp?
Thanks a lot

You flash the card in bootcamp by opening a flashing tool and flashing it.
You are mixing up computer BIOS with GPU BIOS. See "Golden Guide" in my sig to learn more.
I don't recommend flashing to 6970 because ATI Windows drivers can BSOD because of it. It's better to keep it a 6950 Device ID but unlock shaders. Like, with Radeon Bios Editor (RBE).

If you have a moment can you go post at Netkas as we would be curious how your card is working while the rest of us have had a "bag of hurt" since DP2.
DP1 was great, card worked well but since has required obnoxious patches, etc.
