We have spoken with our EFI programmer for our custom cards and he has stated that in fact for the Titan and Titan Black GPU they have indeed used the original MVC rom to serve as a starting point. We had no idea about this and we put our hands up for it. The actual story is as follows, a client asked if we could get his card (a Titan) working with internal power, it turns out this GPU was from MacVidCards (inventory 33584 FYI). We took the challenge, and our guy got it to work, simple as that. We have never sold a single Titan that hasnt had this mod, hence we have only sold the Titan & Titan Black cards with internal powering. As far as we know this is the worlds only EFI, internally powered Titan for the Mac Pro.
We obviously have done our own work on top of the original rom with our internal power mod, this mod extends to the ATI R9 280X. We created the worlds first dual R9s with full internal power, something again only we supply.
In essence we now have a completely new mod of the original rom for the Titans performed by MacVidCards, if someone was to then take this work we have done and add/improve to it we would not be offended. Hopefully someone will one day so we can all gain more from these cards. We will not be rude to the modder, we will not flame them in forums. In all honesty we will simply congratulate the modder and try to improve on that new mod.
We have a new EFI Titan super rom developed and its even more amazing then any done before and once again runs on internal power, this will be offered to all of our Professional EU customers as always and include our same 1 year warranty that we offer on all of our systems.
If MacVidCards would like the us to acknowledge the fact that our Titan roms (and only those) started off life with them then we have no problem with that and would be happy to do so. However, we have now improved on the original mod and moved forward with it. This will make some happy, some annoyed, I call it progress.
We only have happy customers, as does MacVidCards and that's what matters. We are in the process of Making some youtube videos that show our new cards running with benchmarking, our new Titan S EFI's are getting these kind of scores
