This is how to Flash Your Gigabyte 6950 1 gig cards  - see my picture of the pins you must jump are 2 pins .....
I will explain how to unlock bios for gigabyte 6950 graphic card. This method probably can be applied to some other cards from 6xxx series,  As you might know, this card doesn't have bios switch. Also, it's bios is locked by hardware. It's default clock is 870MHz for GPU and 1250MHz for memory. I tried to modify it's bios with RBE to unlock shaders to 6970 and also to move upper limit for GPU above 900MHz. It's not reference card but it was worth to try. Flashed it with ATIWinflash and after that I had BSOD on windows startup. I tried everything but without success, and then I realized it's bios is locked by hardware. Every tool I used for flashing failed with error "bios cannot be erased", or something similar.
I found out the  bios chip for this model and BOOM  i'm ROLLING 400 hashes +  a sec  Roll Eyes
