HD5850 Overclocking past 775MHz
I have a Powercolor HD5850 and right now when i launch AMDOverdriveCtrl i can overclock past the 775MHz mark.
I've heard that it is possible to get past the 775Mhz if i flash the BIOS and change the BIOS limits.
But i really don't want to do this right now since it will void warranty.
I know on windows it can be done using MSI Afterburner.
Can it be done on Linux by the use of any tool to overclock or opensource drivers?
not as i know. means no. but there are some good atom-bios editors to edit the bios of the card.
